Football – England – League One Betting Tips

Tuesday night also brings us domestic action from League One and away from the glitz and the glamour, Portsmouth take on Charlton Athletic as the betting tips continue in the third tier.

It’s not Champions League, but Fratton Park plays host to an equally important clash as Portsmouth look to extend their lead at the top of League One to nine points when they entertain Charlton on the back of four wins on the trot.

Pompey have registered recent wins over Bradford City, Scunthorpe United, Walsall and Southend United, while their home record stands at a solid  6-3-1 18/8 which includes winning three of their last four on home turf.

In addition, Portsmouth have kept five clean sheets at home so far this season while the likes of midfielders Lowe and Curtis (7 goals apiece) along with forwards Evans (6 goals) and Hawkins (5 goals) continue to hit the back of the net at the other end.

Charlton Athletic slipped out of the play-off pack following Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Blackpool and they face another tough away trip to the south coast this Tuesday night as they look to become only the second team to inflict a defeat upon Portsmouth in the league at Fratton Park this season.

Prior to their recent loss at Blackpool, Charlton had also strung together four wins on the trot in the third tier with victories over Doncaster Rovers, Walsall, Bristol Rovers and Burton Albion, but an away record of  4-2-4  16/15 shows a level of inconsistency for Lee Bowyer’s side.

This is further emphasised when looking at Charlton’s last five results away from home; back-to-back defeats at Scunthorpe United and Rochdale were followed by back-to-back wins at Walsall and Burton before losing again at Blackpool.

Portsmouth therefore seem the more consistent of the two teams and the betting tips advise a lean towards the hosts here.
