Despite their recent questionable form, Portsmouth are slight favourites at 3/2 as they welcome Cardiff City to Fratton Park on Saturday.
After an entertaining 5-3 extra-time victory over Huddersfield in the Carling Cup during the week, the Bluebirds find themselves priced at 17/10, while the draw is the least likely outcome according to bwin at 11/5.
With Cardiff having scored in every game this season and Portsmouth scoring just once in their last four, a minor upset could be on the cards as Malky Mackay will be looking to guide his Welsh side to their fourth league victory of the season.
In contrast, Portsmouth have found the going much tougher so far this year with just one win and a Carling Cup defeat to Barnet to show for their efforts.
However, it can only be a matter of time before Pompey begin to find the net again as Luke Varney grows accustomed to his new team mates and Benjani rediscovers some of the form that saw him succeed in the Premier League.
Don’t be surprised to see plenty of goals at Fratton Park, which makes
bwin’s odds of 15/4 for more than 2.5 goals a very attractive proposition.
For the more adventurous bettor, backing four goals will provide you with a price of 21/4 and given Cardiff’s recent record of 13 goals in five games this certainly looks worthwhile.
Betting on this with your free £25 that you receive for joining bwin would see a total return of £156.25 should the prediction prove correct.
Should you have little faith in Portsmouth’s strikeforce being able to turn things around (they have only scored twice in their last four) then look no further than Cardiff winning to nil, which is priced at a generous 18/5.
