Portsmouth vs Derby Prediction

Derby, who lost in two of the past three league road trips. Makes it an obvious decision that Portsmouth will win the match. The stats on paper tighten the three-point possibility for the home side and we expect them to seal one too.

Also, the past nine home matches of Portsmouth saw their defense allowing goals. They have netted 20 goals in that stretch too. Thus, our main betting pick will be Portsmouth to win and our second pick will be both teams to score.

In-form Portsmouth offense is likely to score goals over 1.5 here, as they delivered the same in most of their home matches of late. In that case, you can also back the 2-1 ft score in favor of the Portsmouth side.
