MK Dons vs Plymouth Argyle Prediction, Tips & Odds – Dec. 08, 2021
A larger part of fixtures was played on Tuesday in League One and League Two, but some games will be played on Wednesday evening.
MK Dons is one of the most attractive and interesting teams to watch in lower English leagues. This team is full of young players with huge potential and they have a very interesting young coach in Liam Manning who is only 36 years old.
Manning’s philosophy is to keep the ball and to play passing football with a lot of movement. MK Dons has 59.3% possession per game, 415 passes per game, and in these two categories, they are leaders in League One. They have 5.1 shots on goal, and their attack is the best in the league with 37 goals scored. The average age of the starting eleven is usually 24 years, so they have one of the youngest squads in the first four divisions of English football. Currently, they are in 6th place in the table.
MK Dons is founded in 2004 after old Wimbledon is relocated to Milton Keynes. Since the first season, they are in EFL between Championship and League Two. The last time they were in Championship was in the 2015-16 season, and since that they were relegated to League Two and have returned to League One.
Currently, without a doubt, the best player in MK Dons is midfielder Scott Twine. The 22-year-old Englishman has a fantastic season. He scored 9 goals and have 6 assist this season in the league. He has a very powerful shot and can score fantastic goals. In the last 4 League One games, he has 3 goals and 4 assists. Striker Max Watters is also in good form with 4 goals and one assist in the last 4 games.
Liam Manning likes to play in 3-4-1-2 formation, sometimes in 4-3-3, with Scott Twine behind Max Watters and Mo Eisa.

Plymouth is one positive surprise this season in League One. The team from the South of England was in 18th place last season after promotion from League Two, and in this championship, they are contenders for the promotion. They were the leader on the table a couple of rounds ago, but because of the run of three straight defeats, they slipped in 4th place.
One of the biggest strengths of this team is manager Ryan Lowe, who build a very good team and knows how to make a very compact team. But, there is a problem. Some English media has reported on Tuesday morning that Ryan Lowe will leave Plymouth and he will take charge at Preston North End in Championship who is without a manager. If this happens, that will be a major blow to Plymouth Argyle and their promotion dreams.
Plymouth is in a bad run of results, and this news comes in a very bad time when they have a very difficult game away at MK Dons. After MK Dons, they have to play against Sunderland and Charlton Athletic, so if Lowe leaves now, Argyle will maybe lose place in the top 6 by the end of December.
Plymouth also plays in a 3-5-2 formation, with Luke Jephcott and Ryan Hardie as main strikers. This duo has 14 goals (Hardie 9 and Jephcott 5). In midfield, two key players are Conor Grant and Ryan Broom.
Back to winning ways, and into the 🎩 with the big boys.
Leaving at 3am, game on TV, but another loud and proud away end. 💚#pafc

MK Dons vs Plymouth Argyle Prediction
We will suggest betting on goals. Because of the current form, and manager speculation, MK Dons is maybe in a better position than Plymouth. MK Dons has had four victories in the last 5 games and scored 13 goals.
Still isn’t sure whatever will Ryan Lowe be on the bench for this game, because of Preston speculation, so even if he will be there, the question is how much he will be focused on the game.
In the last couple of rounds, games of both teams have a lot of goals.
MK Dons vs Plymouth Argyle Prediction: OVER 2.5 GOALS
