Portsmouth took a top-ten finish last season in League One, thanks to a strong run at the end of the season.

There was a point for their last weekend in their opening fixture of the new campaign, which was away from home.

Lincoln also drew their league opener. The Imps finished in the bottom half of the table last term.

Will either of these manage to get their first victory of the season on the board?

Portsmouth Preview – Pompey look for an opening home win

Because of a couple of tough patches last season, Portsmouth could only just manage a top-ten finish in last season’s League One campaign.

Their home form was pretty solid, however.

Pompey came up with a W14 D5 L4 home record last season.

They only lost one fixture against teams who finished above them in the standings.

So they appear to have a good shot at three home points on the weekend.

In the match outright, Portsmouth are 3/4 odds-on favourites for the victory* (odds recorded 20:16 GMT on 4th August 2022 at Bet365).

When they hosted the Imps last term, Portsmouth took a 3-2 win.

They also won 3-0 away from home against Lincoln last season.

In their last four home matches against Lincoln, Portsmouth have won three (L1).

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth to win by 2 goals

* (odds recorded 20:16 GMT on 4th August 2022 at Bet365)


In last season’s home campaign, Pompey averaged two goals per fixture.

70% of their home games went above 2.5 goals.

That’s with them earning a clean sheet in 43% of matches at Fratton Park.

It may well be worth leaning towards high-scoring fixtures coming up.

Pushing things out to the over 3.5 goals is at 2/1* (odds recorded 20:16 GMT on 4th August 2022 at Bet365).

Last weekend Portsmouth opened the new season with a 3-3 draw at Sheffield Wednesday.


Lincoln Preview – Tough afternoon for the Imps?

In their season opener last weekend, Lincoln got their first point of the season on the board.

They held out to a 1-1 home draw against Exeter.

Lincoln finished in the bottom half of the League One table last season.

They posted a W7 D5 L11 record on the road, which was incidentally, the exact same record that they took at home.

Three of the seven road victories were surprisingly delivered at top-seven finishers.

They picked off Plymouth, Sunderland and champions Wigan as they defied odds in some good results.

But the overall consistency was not there for them.

In total, Lincoln produced a clean sheet in just 9% of road matches.

They also lost six of their final nine away games of the campaign (W2 D1).

Lincoln are 15/4 underdogs in the match outright which is just too long for football betting tips* (odds recorded 20:16 GMT on 4th August 2022 at Bet365).

This looks like a tough road fixture for them on the weekend, whichever way we look at it.
