Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey bounce back?

In their last league game, Portsmouth had a home fixture on their hands against league leaders Hull.

That was a big chance for Pompey to make some big headway in the promotion pugs.

But they were crushed 4-0 by Hull in a disaster of a fixture.

Now they are still at home, for their third game in a row, and face second-place Lincoln who are bang in form.

In the match outright in football betting, a Portsmouth victory is at a quote of 11/10* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

The home record of Portsmouth in the league is now at W5 D3 L4.

The defeat against Hull saw a five-match undefeated streak of home form which they had been on.

One issue here ahead of football betting is that three of Portsmouth’s home defeats have been against teams in the current top six.

Each of those defeats Portsmouth failed to score in as well.

In total, Portsmouth have taken a clean sheet themselves in 42% of their home games this season.

Our betting prediction:
1-1 Correct Score

(odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January)


On the winning from, five of their six home successes have been by a margin of at least two goals.

But that doesn’t look too probable here in such a tight game.

Now to the head to head for football betting, Portsmouth have done alright recently against LIncoln.

It is a three-match winning streak that Portsmouth have over the Imps, home and away over the last two seasons.

Given how harshly treated they were by Hull last weekend, a Portsmouth 1 goal winning margin is a conservative option at 15/2* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).


Lincoln Preview – Can the in-form Imps earn an important road win?

Lincoln are on fire at the moment having only dropped two points in their last five games.

They are sitting in second place behind league leaders Hull on goal difference only.

Lincoln hold a fantastic W7 D2 L1 record out on their travels and they have a good away winning streak rolling along at the moment.

It is a four-match away winning streak that Lincoln has taken in the league.

In that winning sequence, they have conceded just the one goal.

Their defence has been nothing short of superb this season. They have shipped only five goals in their ten League One away games.

So that puts them right in the mix for this one.

In football betting odds, an away win for Lincoln is trading at a 13/5 quote* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

If they were to pick up the victory that would move them seven points clean of Pompey.

Of the away wins that Lincoln have recorded this season in the league, five of them have been by a 1 goal margin.

Only once have they been trailing at the halftime break in an away game.

The half time draw is a reasonable option in football betting here at 21/20* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).

Of the away goals that they have scored exactly half of them have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches.

Lincoln currently holds the joint-best away record (Portsmouth, Hull) and the joint-second best defensive record.

This should be a fantastic match.


Portsmouth vs Lincoln Betting Advice

These are two very good counter-attacking teams here, and it’s hard to split the pair.

Surely Portsmouth will have had a good look at themselves after crashing so badly last time out against Hull.

We think that they steel themselves and hold out for a point.

So the draw at 12/5 looks a good option* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).


Key Facts – Portsmouth vs Lincoln Betting Tip

  • Portsmouth were beaten 4-0 by league leaders Hull in their last game
  • Portsmouth have won their last three games against Lincoln
  • Lincoln have won their last four away games


Lincoln is such a good defensive side away from home and that is what is leading us towards that outcome.

That blip against Hull aside, Pormtsotuh has been very good in defence as well.

So a really tight game appears to be on the cards and a 1-1 draw wouldn’t surprise at 11/2* (odds recorded 2311 GMT Sunday, 24th January).
