Morecambe vs Portsmouth – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Morecambe have lost just one of their last seven home games ahead of Portsmouth’s visit to Lancashire on Monday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Morecambe Double Chance

Portsmouth seem to have crumbled under the pressure that comes with competing for a playoff spot in the closing weeks of the season and Pompey have looked especially vulnerable on the road where they have gone four games without a win. Morecambe, meanwhile have lost just once in seven assignments at home and their superb 2-1 triumph over Oxford in their last run out at the Mazuma Stadium could set them up for another positive result against a wilting Portsmouth outfit.

Both Teams to Score

Morecambe have become a firm favourite with both teams to score bettors this season, especially when the Shrimps are performing on home soil. Nine of their last ten tussles at the Mazuma Stadium have produced goals at both ends and we don’t expect that run to grind to a halt when Pompey travel north to Lancashire on Monday.

Cole Stockton to Score Anytime

Morecambe striker Cole Stockton is in the running for the Golden Boot in League One this season and the 28-year-old tends to do most of his best work at the Mazuma Stadium. Stockton has hit 14 of his 23 goals in the division at that venue and the lethal finisher is worth backing to swell his numbers at Portsmouth’s expense this week.

Morecambe vs Portsmouth Match Preview and Team News


Freddie Price is an injury worry for Morecambe again this week, though the Shrimps have few concerns troubling them elsewhere. Derek Adams’ side are still embroiled in a nail-biting battle for survival near the foot of the division, though Morecambe will hope that their home form will get them over the line. The Shrimps have taken points of some description in seven of their last nine tests at the Mazuma Stadium.


Kieron Freeman, Jayden Reid and Reeco Hackett are all out injured for Portsmouth this week. Pompey had hoped to launch a playoff push this season, though their form in the back end of the campaign has been uninspiring to say the least and a mid-table finish looks far likelier. Portsmouth have recorded just two victories in their last ten away fixtures in the third tier.
