Portsmouth welcome Brighton & Hove Albion to Fratton Park this weekend for their first home game of the Championship season with goals galore expected.
Steve Cotterrill’s men secured a 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough last weekend while Brighton beat Doncaster 2-1 in the opening Championship fixtures.
Football betting fans will naturally be drawn towards the match result, but arguably the best markets to look at for this clash relate to how many times the net will bulge.
Over 3.5 goals at 12/5 is a great price, with two of the last three meetings between the sides producing four or more goals.
However, for those of you feeling unsure about there being so many goals in the game, bwin’s 3Way market certainly looks to be the way forward.
Although Brighton are a good price away at 7/4, especially after Portsmouth’s shock Carling Cup defeat to League Two outfit Barnet on Tuesday night, the home side are perhaps more tempting at 13/10 to win.
Liam Lawrence is likely to return to the starting line-up for Pompey this weekend, which will surely provide a timely boost to their threadbare squad. Meanwhile, Craig Mackail-Smith, who looks set to be a great addition to the newly-promoted Seagulls, could be a real handful for the home side.
Portsmouth have always got goals in them despite being unable to name a full bench for the last two games, while Brighton have already proved their attacking potential under boss Gus Poyet.
In the full 41 meetings between the two sides, Portsmouth have won 15, Brighton have won 16 and there have been ten draws.
An 11th draw between these two sides is priced at 11/5 this weekend, which means punters who use their £25 free bet upon registration to bwin could bag a whopping £80 if their prediction proves correct.
