Another interesting round of fixtures from the League One this weekend and it gives football backers something to work through. Go over the fixture list and pick your favourite teams at a value price or throw a few together to build a punchy accumulator. Big returns for small stakes is the aim for multiple players. Here are our top Blackpool v Portsmouth betting tips.
A Closer Look
Blackpool has started like a house of fire this season and sped to the top of the League One table in the early exchanges. Are they able to stay there and grab automatic promotion back to the Championship where the rebuilding process will continue, or will it be another failed effort from a team who have let their support down badly in recent years? We’ll find out in due course but there’s every reason for supporters to get their hopes up, judging by what we’ve seen from the Seasiders.
Portsmouth hasn’t had things as good as their opponent so far and a poor run of results in August means they are closer to the relegation zone than their pre-season goal of securing automatic promotion. It’s a big season for Pompey, another side who have come through a lot in recent times, but the pressure is on the squad to deliver a title tilt. If they are to do that, they will have to show us serious improvement.
The form of both sides so far makes the locals easy to back and we’re taking Blackpool at 9/5 with Bet365, a price that makes them second favourite. That caught us off-guard but we’re more than happy to shoot for the value in this one. Portsmouth is undeserving 6/4 favourites at Bet365 and there’s 9/4 for a draw.
