Portsmouth are very well situated in the League One promotion race and they will be looking to extend some excellent recent form.

They could pick up their third straight win on Tuesday night as they play host to the struggling AFC Wimbledon.

Things are not going well for the visitors at the moment who have fallen to a four-match losing streak in league action.

Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey take the home points?

Portsmouth finished the week in third place in League One after a 1-0 win at Fleetwood.

That has been back to back league successes for them and Pompey have earned four wins in their last five (D1).

Their home record is W4 D3 L3.

Given that they are hosting a team in the relegation zone, they are the clear favourites to win this game.

A Portsmouth to win option in the match outright for League One betting is at 8/15* (odds recorded 2012 GMT Monday, 18th January).

They have strung together a four-match unbeaten run of form on home soil, winning two of those.

Surprisingly one of their home league defeats for this campaign did happen against Wigan who are currently third from bottom.

But overall, Pompey have been in terrific defensive shape this season.

They have conceded at under a goal per home game on average, banking a clean sheet in 40% of home fixtures.

A Portsmouth to win to nil option doesn’t look a bad proposition here at 7/5* (odds recorded 2012 GMT Monday, 18th January).

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth 2-0 Correct score

(odds recorded 2012 GMT Monday, 18th January)


Portsmouth have not conceded a single goal in any of their last five league games. Three of those were away from home.

So they are watertight at the back currently and hold the joint-best defensive record in League One at the moment.

Further boosting their claims to get a home win is the fact that there are only two teams in the league who have scored more goals this season than Pompey have done.

On top of that, they have won three of their last four home fixtures played against AFC Wimbledon as well.

All three of those wins incidentally in that sequence were by a 2-1 scoreline.


AFC Wimbledon Preview – Can AFC Wimbledon stop the rot?

AFC Wimbledon have been slumping badly since the start of December.

It’s been one point that they have earned from their last seven games.

That leaves them in the drop zone and they are starting at potentially a fifth straight league loss in this one.

They have been in a terrible mess at the back, having connected at least two goals in six of their last seven league fixtures.

AFC Wimbledon are a quote of 11/2 to come up with a victory on Tuesday night, which doesn’t look too plausible of an outcome.

Their away record this season is W3 D4 L4.

But they have gone only D1 L3 in their last four road games.

two of the three away wins that they have managed to earn have been at teams currently in the bottom seven with them.

AFC Wimbledon have averaged a goal per away game this season and to their credit have only failed to score in two road fixtures for the campaign.

82% of their away goals have been scored in the first half of games.

AFC Wimbledon have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last nine games though, home and away combined.

So that is really where it falls down for them, especially in facing a form team.

Six of the ten defeats that AFC Wimbledon have suffered this season have been by a margin of one goal only.

Remarkably AFC Wimbledon have opened the scoring in 7 of their 11 away games this season.

But clearly, they have struggled to hold onto those leads and close out games to put points on the board.

It’s not happening for them at the moment and this is another tough game for them.


Portsmouth vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Advice

The home win clearly looks the best option here for League One football betting as Pompey are in form.

A Portsmouth to win to nil option at 7/5 may just take this* (odds recorded 2012 GMT Monday, 18th January).

They have been so good in defence recently and may have enough to shut down the visitors.


Key Facts – Portsmouth vs AFC Wimbledon Betting Tip

  • Portsmouth have not conceded in any of their last five league games
  • Portsmouth are W4 D1 in their last five league fixtures
  • AFC Wimbledon have suffered a defeat in six of their last seven league fixtures


AFC Wimbledon have just been leaking goals and while the trend with them has been scoring in road games, we can’t get there with them for this.

That is taking into consideration that they barely laid a glove on Sunderland on the weekend and have failed to score in two of their last three league games.

The Portsmouth/Portsmouth HT/FT option for 11/8 may be worth some consideration in this game* (odds recorded 2012 GMT Monday, 18th January).
