Portsmouth Preview – Can Pompey sink the U’s?

Portsmouth eased to a 4-1 home win over Crewe on the weekend, making it a three-match unbeaten streak of runs in League One.

Pompey are the 10/11 favourites to collect the match win on Tuesday night* (odds taken 23:47 GMT Monday, 23rd November).

The home record that they have produced has been a little shaky at W3 D1 L3 only.

But they have won two of their last three, scoring exactly four goals in each of those.

Putting the ball in the back of the net has not been a problem for Portsmouth this season and they are averaging just shy of two goals per game.

Home and away combined, just one of Portsmouth’s seven league wins this season have been by a one goal margin.

A Portsmouth to win by a 2 goal margin is 9/2 football betting option* (odds taken 23:47 GMT Monday, 23rd November).

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth 2-0 correct score

Bet at Bet365

(odds taken 23:47 GMT Monday, 23rd November)


The last two meetings between Portsmouth and Oxford at Fratton Park have ended in a draw.

But Portsmouth are undefeated in their last four such fixtures. Both teams have scored in each of the last three.

Interestingly Pompey have picked up more points away from home this season in fewer games than what they have done at home.

But they are the top-scoring team in League One and look a solid option for three points in this game.


Oxford Preview – Can Oxford make it back to back wins?

This has been a difficult season for Oxford who are W4 L7 for the campaign.

Two of their wins have come inside their last three games, so they have found a little bit of fom.

They scored a 2-1 away win at Wigan on the weekend to get a good lift up on twelve points for the season.

The U’s sit outside of the relegation zone on goal difference only.

The problem for them here comes from their record so far away at the current top seven sides.

Oxford have played four such matches this season have lost each of those by a 2-0 scoreline.

A Portsmouth 2-0 correct score is at 17/2* (odds taken 23:47 GMT Monday, 23rd November).

So this may very well be a difficult road game for them in midweek.
