Match Preview & Team News
The Pompeys are having slightly lower expectations from this campaign in comparison to visitors. Portsmouth is currently sitting in 6th place with 52 points total, on edge of the playoff zone. Reaching top two places is unrealistic, considering there are 14 rounds left to be played and the gap is quite significant. The main reason for that is recent poor form. Team has earned only one win in the last five appearances. All in all, we should witness an interesting encounter. Read on our League One betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
In terms of the odds, visitors were labelled as warm favorites at 8/5 rate. Sunderland have improved their form drastically in comparison to late 2020 or early 2021. The Black Cats were victorious in five out of the last six divisional matches, which was huge boost of confidence and standings. They have two games played less than Hull City (table leaders), and the difference between them is only five points.
Back line has started playing much better as well, keeping four clean sheets in the last five games. Last weekend’s 2-0 home win against Rochdale was very smooth. Sanderson and Wyke scored goals in the first half. As for the hosts, their record at this venue is not that convincing, having six wins, five draws and six defeats.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Portsmouth demolished Sunderland in the first head to head meeting this season 3-1. We are once again expecting to see an open duel and a lot of goals. BTTS is going to be the primary pick for this market.
It’s about time for Portsmouth’s form to start going up. They rarely lose games to top tier teams in the league this season, so home win or draw double chance at 11/20 is going to be our secondary pick.
