League One / Two Betting

Sunderland v Portsmouth League One Preview, 17th August 12.30pm

This game is the biggest fixture of the League One action on the weekend. It features two of the teams who failed in the division’s playoffs at the end of the last campaign. They actually met five times last season with the Black Cats having the better of those clashes. Sunderland are looking for their first win of this campaign.

Sunderland News and Form

It has been back to back drawn games by Sunderland in League One this season. They opened at home with a 1-1 draw against Oxford before playing out the same scoreline at Ipswich last weekend. So it has not been the most convincing of stars from the Black Cats. They were fifth-place finishers in the league last season picking up a W12 D10 L1 record on home soil. Sunderland struggled a bit towards the end of the season.

There was just the one win in their last seven league games last season (D3 L3) so add on the two missed chances from this campaign and that is one win in nine league games. On home soil, last season all but three of Sunderland’s home successes were against teams who finished in the bottom half of the table. Eight of their ten home draws were by a 1-1 scoreline, which has again been prominent for them this season. Sunderland took a clean sheet in a quarter of home games last season.

Portsmouth News and Form

Pompey finished one place above the Black Cats last season in the standings but then lost 1-0 on aggregate to them in the playoff semi-finals. Their record away from home was pretty strong at W13 D6 L4. That is one more win than what they managed at home actually. Pompey went undefeated in their final five away games of the campaign, winning four of those. This season they have gotten themselves up and running with a win.

Portsmouth lost on the opening weekend of the new season, suffering a 1-0 loss at Shrewsbury. But then they set the record straight last weekend with a 2-0 success over Tranmere. That away defeat at the Shrews will probably be hanging heavily on their minds as they go into one of their toughest away games of the season. Portsmouth are the 4/1 outright favourites to earn promotion from League One this season, one mark ahead of Sunderland* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 15th, 2019 at 8:15 p.m.).

There is probably going to be another tight duel between the two of these. They look two of the strongest sides in the division and that’s why this match gets top billing. The draw in the match outright really doesn’t look that unreasonable of an option.

Portsmouth v Birmingham EFL Cup Preview, 6th August 7.45pm

The first round of the EFL Cup swings around just after the start of the new league season on the weekend. There could be an interesting clash at Fratton Park as Kenny Jackett’s League One outfit entertain Championship side Birmingham. Can the home side pull this out of the bag as they are kicking off as the favourites? Read our Portsmouth v Birmingham betting tips for more.

Portsmouth News and Form

Pompey got off to a losing start to the new season with a 1-0 away loss at Shrewsbury in League One on Saturday. They are kicking off as the favourites for this game at Fratton Park. Last season in the first round they found themselves on home soil and suffered a 1-2 loss against AFC Wimbledon. Skip back a season before that and they also made a first-round exit, losing away at Cardiff.

So they haven’t exactly been reliable with their League Cup output. They are now on a four-match losing streak in the League Cup, each of those defeats coming by a one-goal margin. They have lost seven of their last nine games played in this competition (W2). The two wins in that sequence were on home soil, both b against Peterborough in 2014 and then Derby the following season.

Birmingham News and Form

The Blues secured an opening success for the season on the weekend. They made a tricky trip to Brentford and came away with a 1-0 win. After their struggles last season in the Championship, where they finished in the bottom half of the table, they can be forgiven for not paying too much attention to the EFL Cup.

Much like Pompey, Birmingham have had their struggles in the League Cup. They have lost four of their last five played in the competition, their one success in that sequence coming at home against Crawley in 2017. Last season they lost in the first round away at Reading. The away form of the Blues in the competition isn’t great. They have gone W3 L6 in their last nine on the road in the competition.

Pompey have won three of their last four at home against Birmingham, including an FA Cup tie. There’s no recent form to look at for this fixture, so a punt on the home side to come up with something looks the right option.

Shrewsbury v Portsmouth League One Preview, 3rd August 3.00pm

Shrewsbury finished in the bottom seven in League One last season, not the greatest of efforts for them. They were much better on home soil than on the road though. They kick off on home soil this weekend against Portsmouth. Pompey were one of the strong contenders for promotion last season, but they fell short in the playoffs.

Shrewsbury News and Form

It was a W8 D9 L6 record that Shrewsbury produced on home soil last season. They only won twice at New Meadow after the turn of the new year. The Shrews have manager Sam Ricketts in charge after he received the job back at the start of December last year. They have won eight of the 32 games for which he has been in charge (all competitions). So a 25% win rate needs some improving upon.

Shrewsbury only managed an average of 1.09 goals per home game last season. Just 35% of fixtures at New Meadow went over 2.5 goals. In total, they bagged a clean sheet in 39% of their home fixtures. Of their eight wins the last term at the New Meadow, four were by one goal margin and the other four by a two-goal margin. Salop only managed to net the first goal in 9 of their 23 home fixtures.

Portsmouth News and Form

Pompey had a pretty decent run at promotion last season. They actually won one more game out on their travels than they managed at home. Their overall away record was W13 D6 L4. Apart from a sticky patch in January when they lost three on the bounce, they were very, very solid. They won seven of their last ten games of the season (home and away combined). Portsmouth scored an average of 1.8 goals per away game, but only collected a clean sheet in 17% of road fixtures. Of the thirteen away wins that they took, 10 of them were by one goal margin only. In a tremendous record, they were leading at the half time break in 12 of their 23 away games last season. Two-thirds of their away goals were conceded in the second half of games. Pompey are the 13/2 second-favourites to win League One this season* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on July 30th, 2019 at 9:15 p.m.).

We are going to lean on Pompey coming up with an away win in this opener. They were so good last season, they just could not get the job done in the play offs where they lost 1-0 on aggregate against Sunderland. They can kick things off with a bang and get three points at New Meadow.

Pompey have some work to do to get themselves back into this tie. They trail 1-0 from their trip to the Stadium of Light in the first leg of this semi-final. This was always going to be a tight scrap between two very good teams. Can Portsmouth mount a response back at home?

Portsmouth News and Form

Pompey produced a W12 D7 L4 record at home across the course of the regular season. They are going to need to call on all of their home strengths of theirs. They were doing great at Fratton Park at the end of the regular season. They were on a four-match winning streak (seven undefeated) before a 2-3 reverse there against Peterborough in their final home game of the term. They closed out the season by scoring at least two goals in each of their last five home fixtures. In total, they averaged 1.8 goals per home game this season in their League One campaign. They conceded under a goal per game.

So this is still likely to be a tight game. Pompey took a clean sheet in 30% of their home games, which was a great effort. They did fail to get one in any of their final four at Fratton Park through this season. In total, home and away Portsmouth did not get a clean sheet in any of their last seven games. Pompey though scored in each of their final dozen games of the campaign. Of the twelve home wins that they recorded this season, eight of them were by a one-goal margin. Pompey scored 71% of their home goals for the season in the second period of fixtures, scoring the opening goal in 12 of their 23 home fixtures.

Sunderland News and Form

The Black Cats shook off a little slump in end of season form to give themselves an advantage in this tie. They failed to win any of their final four regular season games, taking the two points only in that sequence. Sunderland took just one win in their final seven games of the campaign. The Black Cats posted a W10 D9 L4 away record for the season in the division and interestingly they did struggle for away wins at teams in the top half of the table. Sunderland posted a W2 D6 L3 record this season in such matches.

The Black Cats took one point from their final three away games of the season and they failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last four on the road. They do have a positive of having scored in each of their last eleven games now, including the first leg of this semi-final. Of the four away defeats that Sunderland suffered this season, three of them were by a one-goal margin. They closed out their away campaign with back to back 2-1 defeats at Fleetwood and Southend. Of the goals which they shipped on their travels, 68% of them happened after the halftime break in game. Sunderland scored 65% of their away goals in the second half of games. They did open the scoring 14 road games for the season.

Sunderland News and Form

So this will be an interesting clash as neither were particularly in great form at the end of the season. After such a strong and powerful campaign for pretty much its entirety, Sunderland ran out of steam about midway through April. They posted just one victory in their last seven games of the season, losing three of those. They closed out the season with back-to-back 2-1 away defeats at Fleetwood and Southend. The home record of Sunderland was highly impressive during the regular season as the Black Cats produced a W12 D10 L1 home record. They remained undefeated all the way through to their third-from-last home fixture of the season when they were toppled by Coventry in a thrilling 5-4 defeat.

Sunderland did manage to score in each and every home game played and they closed out the season on a 10 match scoring streak, home and away combined. So that is a big strength of theirs and they averaged exactly 2 goals per home game across the course of the season. But it is interesting to see that during the regular season Sunderland only claimed three victories in their 11 games against the final top 12 (D7 L1). Sunderland conceded just over a goal per game at home across the course of the season. Of the goals which they did concede home, 64% of them were conceded in the first-half of fixtures. Seven of their 12 wins at the Stadium of Light were by a margin of at least two goals during the regular season. Sunderland opened the scoring in 12 of their 23 home fixtures. Sunderland finished the regular season with the joint third highest tally of goals and the fourth best defensive record in League One.

Portsmouth News and Form

Portsmouth had some powerful form during their run in. From the start of March, they produced eight wins in their final 12 fixtures of the season (D2 L2). That was some finish from them and at one point they put together a seven-match winning streak, scoring a least two goals in each of those seven victories. Overall during the regular season, Portsmouth produced an away record of W13 D6 L4. However their away record against the other top six finishers at the end of the season was just a winless D3 L2 return. So Pompey did struggle their away games against the better sides in the division which makes this fascinating. Out on their travels during the regular season, Portsmouth averaged 1.8 goals per away game and 61% of all of their road fixtures went over 2.5 goals.

Because of a lack of clean sheets across the course of the season, that played a part in some high-scoring away fixtures for Portsmouth. Pompey claimed a clean sheet in just 17% of away games and both teams scored in 78% of their away fixtures. Portsmouth scored in each of their last 11 away games of the season but they claimed just the one clean sheet in their last 14 games out on the road. Home and away combined Pompey have no clean sheet in their last seven games. Of their 13 away wins posted during the regular season, 10 of them were by a one-goal margin. Portsmouth are leading at the halftime break in 12 of their 23 away fixtures. They conceded 66% of their away goals in the second period of games

There should be a really evenly matched contest over the two legs between these two. The home record from Sunderland across the course of the season cannot be ignored at all, but Portsmouth have the scoring power to trouble them.

Portsmouth News and Form

This is a high tension game at this stage of the season. On the weekend Portsmouth picked up a point away at Sunderland to keep their hopes of automatic promotion going. A win in this and they move up to within one point of the top two leaving a great opportunity open for them in the final weekend of action. Portsmouth are a team who have been in fantastic form as they were on a seven-match winning streak in League One before their draw against Sunderland on the weekend.

Portsmouth are on a four-match winning streak on home soil and they are undefeated in their last seven on the South coast. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four home games and they are currently on a 10 match scoring streak in the league, home and away combined.

Overall this season Portsmouth have taken a home record of W12 D6 L3 and they have averaged 1.8 goals per home fixture. It is not only the scoring power which they have produced but they have been tight in defence as well. Portsmouth have conceded at under a goal per game on home soil and less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals.

In total Portsmouth have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their home fixtures. Going back to their scoring Portsmouth have scored at least two goals in seven of their last eight games, home and away. Of the 12 home wins which they have picked, up eight of them have been by a two goal margin at least. The negative for Portsmouth is that they have no clean sheet in their last five League One fixtures.

Portsmouth earned a 2-1 away win at Peterborough earlier this season
That is back-to-back league wins for Portsmouth over Peterborough which they have taken
Portsmouth have won five of the last six meetings in all competitions
Both teams have scored in just two of their last six meetings in all competitions

Peterborough News and Form

This is equally as big of a game for Peterborough. They missed big chance on the weekend as they lost 3-0 away at the relegation-threatened Walsall. Peterborough have not been having the greatest of time out on the road as they have lost three of their last five away from home, winning one of those. Overall this season they have recorded a decent enough W10 D5 L7 record on their travels it has just fallen apart a bit for them really since Christmas. Six of their seven away defeats have come since Boxing Day in the league.

They have scored well away from home this season as they average 1.7 goals per road fixture. But they have conceded at an average of 1.5 per game. 59% of Peterborough’s away games have ended over 2.5 goals. Of the goals which Boro have conceded away from home this season 72% have been shipped in the second period of fixtures.

Peterborough have opened the scoring in 12 of their 22 away games and they have scored two-thirds of their away goals in the second half of games. Of the seven away defeats which they have suffered this season, five of them have been by a at least a two-goal margin. If they don’t get the win out of this game, the chance at the top six finish will pass them by.

It is really make or break for both of these in this game as both desperately need a victory to reach their own targets. However it is Portsmouth who are the ones with the stronger form at the moment and with them having home soil, it is the home win in the match outright which has the most appeal.

Pompey are on a good promotion push then in then in League One and have the chance to try and secure some silverware. Kenny Jackett’s men have just started to come back into form, importantly at the right time then for this final. They were on an eight-match winless streak of form (D6 L2) across all competitions. But they have stepped it up to a W5 L1 record in their last six played and that run started with an FA Trophy semi-final win over Bury at the end of February. Pompey have won all seven games played in this season’s tournament, collecting a clean sheet in five of those. Pompey scored at least two goals in five of their seven FA Trophy games this season. This is Pompey’s first ever appearance in the final of this particular competition.

The Black Cats are right up on the heels of Portsmouth inside the top four in League One, trailing Pompey by one point, but having two games in hand over the third-placed side. Sunderland saw off Bristol Rovers in their semi-final clash and that moved them on to a six-match winning streak (90 minutes) in this season’s competition. In their first group stage game of this season’s tournament, they played out a 0-0 draw with Stoke but won on penalties. Sunderland have conceded just one goal in their seven FA Trophy matches this season. The Mackems are on a long undefeated streak of form in all competitions at the moment. It is 19 match unbeaten streak they are on currently. They have won five of their last seven played. In that seven-game sequence, they have conceded just the two goals.

QPR v Portsmouth Preview

QPR were on their way out of the FA Cup away at Portsmouth. Fortunately for them, Nahki Wells came up with an equalizer with 15 minutes to go. QPR were on top in the match, but they didn’t create as much going forward as they probably should have. But now back on home soil at Loftus Road, they will be expected to drive forward. QPR have posted a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five home fixtures. They pulled off an upset at home against Championship leaders Leeds in the last round. They haven’t been short of goals have QPR, as they have scored at least two goals in five of their last seven at Loftus Road. The last time that QPR played host to Portsmouth was back in the 2011 championship, with the R’s earning a 2-0 victory. QPR are actually undefeated in their last 13 home fixtures against Portsmouth.

Pompey could well be meeting QPR up in the Championship next season. That is because they are on a good promotion push in League One at the moment. There is a bit of a question mark over their form though because Pompey have earned one win in their last six games in all competition. That victory was a 1-0 away win at Championship side Norwich in the last round of the FA Cup. Their away form doesn’t made particularly great reading either. They have earned two wins only in their last six on the road. But there is a positive for Pompey in that they have scored in all but one of their away games in all competitions this season. This will be their fourth away game of this season’s FA Cup having won each of the other three (against Maidenhead, Rochdale and then Norwich) with a clean sheet.

Who will win – QPR v Portsmouth Predictions

QPR should just have enough on home soil at Loftus Road to close out this FA Cup replay. It may well again be a tight battle between the two but we are sticking with a home side to get the victory by a one-goal margin at 13/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 2nd, 2019 at 9:12 p.m.)

67% of their home goals have been scored in the second half of fixtures. They have been good at getting themselves in front as well. They have scored the first goal of the game in all but three of their home fixtures this season. Portsmouth have also been leading at the halftime break in exactly half of their home games.

Charlton go into the game sitting in seventh place in the league. They could climb up to fifth with a win in this tough road game. They were away from home on the weekend and suffered a 2-1 defeat at Blackpool who moved level on points with them. That snapped a good four-match winning streak of form that Charlton had been on. Still, they have won five of their last eight league games, posting a W5 D1 L2 record in that sequence of fixtures. Charlton have banked an away record of W4 D2 L4 this season in the league

They have failed to win any of their three away games against sides currently in the top flight (D1 L2) though. Of all of their away games this season 60% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have netted at least two goals in four of their last five fixtures so have been a threat in front of goal. The Addicks are on a five-match scoring streak in the league.

Who will win – Portsmouth v Charlton Predictions

Portsmouth should just have the edge, especially on home soil. Pompey are playing some superb stuff at the moment and it’s going to be hard for the Addicks to get anything out of this away game, especially after their loss at Blackpool on the weekend. Home win.

League One / Two Betting

Doncaster v Portsmouth League Two, 5th January 7.45pm

League Two leaders Doncaster step out into action on Thursday night to try and extend their last at the top of the table. However, they are going into a tough game against the in-form Pompey who have promotion ambitions of their own as they start the game in fourth place. But Doncaster are unbeaten in their last 12 league home matches now so will take some stopping. But then you have Pompey who have gone unbeaten in their last eight league games out on the road. This should be a mammoth clash at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday night. Doncaster are 8/5 for the wine, that the draw at 5/2 and Portsmouth at 7/4.

Doncaster v Portsmouth Betting Tips

Tough game coming up for Doncaster who step out against Pompey on Thursday night. Rovers have posted an unbeaten W9 D3 record at home this season in the league, part of the reason why they are running for promotion. They are on a four match winning streak on home soil and have won six of their last seven there (D1) so are going to take some stopping. Five of their last seven home wins though have only been by the one goal margin and Doncaster to win by a one goal margin at Bet365 will return a price of 7/2. Their last two League Two wins on home soil have been by a 1-0 scoreline and each of their last three wins home and away in the league have been but that result. A Doncaster 1-0 correct score returns a quote of 7/1 with bookmaker Bet365 for this one.

Rovers have actually failed to win any of their last four at home against Portsmouth in a D1 L3 record so this may not be all cut and dry. Home and away against Pompey, Rovers have won two of their last six meetings and one of those did happen this season when they carded a 2-1 victory on the south coast against Pompey back at the start of October. Top scorer for Rovers this season is John Marquis with an 11 goal haul and he is a price of 3/2 in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market with Andy Williams at 13/8. Liam Mandeville has seven goals in nine league appearances this season and is a 2/1 quote. So they have the firepower do Rovers. However, the game to go under 2.5 goals, as Doncaster have shipped just one goal in their last four league games, is a quote of 4/5 with bookmaker Bet365.

So there is nothing wrong with Pompey’s form at the moment. They are unbeaten in their last five home and away and out on the road in League Two they have put together an eight match unbeaten streak (W5 D3). So they are tripping long nicely although they were held to a 0-0 draw at Yeovil in their last away game. Overall this season Portsmouth have gone W6 D4 L2 on the road. They have been level at the break in nine of their 13 away games this season and just 31% of their away games in the league have gone over 2.5 goals so there may not be a lot of goals flying around in this one. Pompey have scored just the 14 way goals this season in 13 games, but they have netted three goals in two of their last four out on the road so there have been signs of increasing output. They can’t match the firepower of Doncaster at the moment, but they can certainly dig in with defensive discipline (four clean sheets in their last five) and make Rovers sweat.

Who will win – Doncaster v Portsmouth Predictions

This one has a low scoring draw written all over it, so have a shot at a 1-1 correct score. Doncaster have more to offer going forward in the game, but Pompey rarely give up much at the back. Pompey are defending a long unbeaten stretch of form away from home and they would probably be happy walking away from the south coast trip with a point in their pocket. Draw and under 2.5 goals.
