Portsmouth vs Wycombe Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview
Portsmouth look like a strong side at home these days and there’s much more stability about the club. Wycombe had their chance of a promotion to league one not so long ago and look like they could be a struggler again this season. Below is our match preview, prediction and betting tips.
Game: Portsmouth vs Wycombe Wanderers
Venue: Fratton Park
Kick off: Saturday 10th September, 3pm
Portsmouth made light work of Colchester and Crawley with a pair of comfortable wins in the month of August which made up for a slow start in a 1-1 draw with Carlisle. Wycombe have found points much harder to come having won just once in six games. Wanderers have only won twice away in the league since the turn of 2016.
Wanderers’ 4-1 loss to Luton last weekend was a good indication of the difference in quality between those who will be at the top this season and the chair boys themselves. Portsmouth could deal out similar punishment as they come in to this game on the back of a 3-0 win over Crawley – a side Wycombe were beaten by.
Portsmouth were 2-1 winners when the sides met here last season and have never been beaten by Wycombe in their six historical League Two meetings. That run should continue here.
Match Predictions and Betting Tips
Portsmouth are a skimpy 4/7 with Bet365 and many others to win this game and that’s probably a fair reflection of their chances. The draw can be backed at 3/1 also with Bet365 whilst Wycombe to win is a whopping 6/1 with Betfair and every bit as unlikely as the price suggests.
Portsmouth have won their last two home games by two clear goals or more but we know a price like this doesn’t interest us. Being that we are so confident of a home win here, looking at the handicap is probably a better bet, and also better value.
Portsmouth -1AH is priced at 30/29 with Bet Victor and that offers us very good value on our free betting tip. It’s hard to see past them winning this game in some way and I can deal with taking my money back any time a handicap voids. It’s great insurance on such a good home team.
Wycombe have scored one goal in their three away games so far this season and they’ve looked frail at the back also, allowing six goals. I do believe that the handicap, let alone the match result, could be a romp for Portsmouth so ourcorrect score prediction is 3-0 at best odds of 11/1 with Bet Victor.
Curtis Main has three goals so far this season but Gary Roberts has netted four for Pompey. His set piece prowess and the fact that he also takes penalties always makes the wide man a tidy proposition for an any time scorer bet. He’s available at odds of 11/4 with Paddy Power.
