The Championship returns from its international break this weekend and Portsmouth will make the tough trip to Upton Park to take on title favourites West Ham.
Pompey, 12th in the league after five games, are 9/2 to register their first away victory of the season, while the Hammers are at 31/50 to ensure the three points stay in east London.
The fact that West Ham are yet to win at home this season may entice a few punters to back Steve Cotterill’s men when the pair meet in Saturday’s 3pm kick-off.
After sharing the spoils in their two games on their travels thus far this season, the draw at 5/2 in the 3way football betting market could prove to be an attractive bet if you think that this run of draws may continue at Upton Park.
Portsmouth have scored all four of their goals, in all competitions, in the second half so far this term, while West Ham have conceded all six of their goals in the second half and scored 66% of their goals in the first half.
This opens up some attractive markets for punters. Bwin are offering 27/2 on West Ham leading at half-time and the game ending in a draw and 50/1 on West Ham leading at half-time but Pompey being ahead at the end of the 90 minutes.
West Ham have also scored first in each of their last five games and with odds of 1/2 with bwin they are fancied to do the same this time out.
The Hammers have also been leading at half-time in each of these games. This stat, combined with Pompey’s record of not scoring in any first 45 of their games, makes a bet on Sam Allardyce’s men to be winning at half-time even more enticing at odds of 11/10.
