Venue: Fratton Park
This game in hand is vital for both of these teams in the promotion race, and the play-off race. Portsmouth are four points behind joint leaders Barnsley and Luton Town but can get within a point if they beat Peterborough this week. Two teams go up automatically and they’ll be hoping for a slip-up from one of the top two in their weekend fixtures. Pompy also have a much inferior goal different than the two leaders, so nothing but a win will keep Kenny Jackett’s side in the automatic race.
Peterborough have dropped away from the play-off places following a loss and two draws in their previous three matches, and are now four points behind Doncaster Rovers who are sixth. Only a win will keep them in the race and we’re predicting their play-off hopes will be ended by Portsmouth here. The first of our Portsmouth vs Peterborough predictions is for the home side to continue their great form and win the match. In their previous four home matches, Portsmouth have taken maximum points, bouncing back from a run of four games without a win.
For an anytime goalscorer bet, Omar Bogle is favourite at 7/5, but he’s only scored four times this season and could miss the match. The Portsmouth top goalscorer is Jamal Lowe and he’s 8/5 to score against Peterborough and our second Portsmouth vs Peterborough betting tip. The Englishman scored in the most recent 1-1 draw with Sunderland and has got five goals in his last eight matches now.
Peterborough’s top goalscorer for the 2018/19 season is Matt Godden and he’s got 14 goals in the campaign, with eight of them from the penalty spot. The odds for him to score against Portsmouth this week are 49/20.
This is a huge match for both teams, but particularly Portsmouth, who will want to get up to the Championship automatically, rather than going through the play-offs. Peterborough have only won two of their last 10 away matches and when these sides met in the EFL Trophy, Pompy ran out 1-0 winners. We’re expecting things to be close again in this one, but Portsmouth’s form at home is really strong and they should get the three points, to take the automatic promotion, and title race, down the the final day.
The last of our Portsmouth vs Peterborough predictions if for Portsmouth to win the match 2-1 and the best odds are 7/1 with 888Sport.
