Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Plymouth and Portsmouth go head to head at Home Park in what is expected to be a close League One match. The Pilgrims are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win, and they are likely to adopt yet another attack-minded approach. All Brendan Galloway, George Cooper, Dan Scarr, and Alfie Lewis are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Pompey, on the other hand, are seven points behind the playoffs berth, but with a couple of games in hand. Since the visitors will go for a win in the midweek clash as well, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. Marcus Harness is banned for the match, while all Shaun Williams, Paul Downing, Kieron Freeman, and Reeco Hackett-Fairchild should miss out through injuries.
