Betting tips Crewe Alexandra vs Plymouth Argyle

Crewe and Plymouth to produce the goods

Crewe host Plymouth Argyle on the opening day of the League Two season. They have had contrasting summers but who will triumph in matchday one? Have a read of our preview here:

Stability the key for Crewe

For the second successive summer, Crewe have quietly gone about their business without fuss or furore. The Railwaymen are less channel tunnel and more traditional steam when it comes to transfer windows yet the slow build that has been taking place over the last couple of seasons could be about to bear fruit.

Crewe were superb in the second half of the last campaign and a lot of that is down to the way David Artell got his young side to find some consistency, especially at home. The club boasts a group of homegrown players who have flourished with the responsibility of first-team football, none more so than the likes of Perry Ng and Harry Pickering but there are at least half a dozen others that grew into the season after a slow start in 2018-19.

Callum Ainley is an exciting prospect while Charlie Kirk shone in spells, especially towards the end of the campaign and in midfield, both Ryan Wintle and James Jones made huge strides. This is a young group of players being developed into an exciting team by a manager who often gets little credit for the work he does. They should be one to watch in 2019-20.

Lowe looking to repeat success

Unlike Crewe, Argyle have had anything but a settled summer. The Pilgrims were relegated last season following a hugely disappointing campaign in League One and Derek Adams was duly shown the door.

Ryan Lowe, who had just won promotion from League Two with Bury, was selected as his replacement and he was quick to take advantage of his old side’s financial crisis by signing no fewer than five of his old charges.

The expectation is that he can reproduce the same magic he managed last season and bringing the highly-rated Danny Mayor to Devon with him will help. There are still some question marks over the squad and where the goals will come from but Plymouth look strong and should be around the top of the table if they can hit the ground running.

Crewe Alexandra v Plymouth Argyle betting tip

With Ryan Lowe known for his attacking football and Crewe prolific towards the end of the last season backing both teams to score at odds of 4/5 should be a safe bet in this one.
