Portsmouth have played their way into the top five in League One and will be looking to continue the momentum by taking their third win on the spin.

They will be playing host to Northampton who have been having a really tough time of things this season.

With Northampton struggling along, will they give up the three points at Fratton Park?

Portsmouth Preview – Pompey good for the win?

Portsmouth have won their last two games and they were out on the road at Gillingham and then impressively at Sunderland.

So they are in great form at the moment as they are looking to score three straight wins in League One.

Pompey haven’t been in the greatest shape at home however, with a W1 L2 record at Fratton Park.

The losses were against Wigan and Doncaster, but they are the 2/5 odds-on favourites to collect three points in this one* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

It is worth noting the goal output that Portsmouth have fallen into. In four of their last five games, they have scored at least two goals.

Three of their four wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals.

For Tuesday night’s League One betting, a Portsmouth 2 goal winning margin is at 10/3* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

This does look to be a great chance for them to bump up their goal tally on home turf.

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth 2-0 correct score

Bet at Betfair

(odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October)


There is a good home record that Portsmouth have going as well against Northampton.

It is a three match winning streak on home turf that Pompey have taken against Northampton and two of those were by a two-goal margin.

Across all competitions, Portsmouth have won five of their last six played, so they are a club in good spirits at the moment.

Interestingly the one win that they have taken at Fratton Park happened against Milton Keynes who are second from bottom.

The out-of-form Notrhatmpon visit currently sat in 19th spot.


Northampton Preview – More woes ahead for Northampton

Things are a little sour for Northampton at the moment as they have suffered five losses in their last six league games.

There has been a trend with that as well because four of those five defeats were by a 2-0 scoreline.

A Portsmouth 2-0 correct score option, with that in mind, is at 6/1* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

Northampton have lost their last two games out on the road, going down against Bristol Rovers and Plymouth.

That is two goals exactly conceded in each of those games. With that we can see another trend for League One betting to consider.

Noerhtampton have conceded exactly two goals in six of their last eight fixtures.

We are looking at a quote of 15/2 on Northampton collecting an away victory on Tuesday night.

This will be the first meeting between the two teams in league action, since they met in December 2017 (in League One).

Northampton have lost their last four games in a row against Portsmouth, home and away combined.

Northampton have played five games this season against teams who are currently sat in the top half of the season.

They have lost all of those.

The two wins that they have taken were both 2-1 victories against teams who are currently sitting beneath them in the table.

Northampton don’t appear to be a likely winning candidate in this fixture as they have failed to take a clean sheet this season.

Four of the five away goals that Norhampton have conceded in this campaign have come in the second half of fixtures.


Portsmouth vs Northampton Betting Advice

We would have to roll with the home victory in this fixture but their long odds-on price in the match outright isn’t great.

So we have to look beyond that. Even though Pompey haven’t hit top form on home soil, we see them winning this comfortably.

The trends suggest that they can get close to a 2-goal winning margin, which is a 10/3 option* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).


Key Facts – Portsmouth vs Northampton Betting Tip

  • Portsmouth have won their last three home games against Northampton
  • Portsmouth have won four of their last five league fixtures
  • Northampton have lost five of their last six games in the league


So that is the first pick for our League One betting in this game. The other would be the tempting longer option in the correct score market.

A 6/1 for a Portsmouth 2-0 doesn’t stretch the realms of probability in this fixture we feel* (odds taken 0458 GMT Monday, 26th October).

We don’t see Northampton, who have lost five of their last six games, coming up with a shock road victory.
