Derby vs Portsmouth Odds, Free Betting Tips & Predictions

These are our predictions and tips for this match:

McGoldrick to Score Anytime

Our first Derby vs Portsmouth prediction backs the Rams’ top goalscorer McGoldrick (22 goals) to find the back of the net again. McGoldrick has scored in all of the last 5 rounds (6 goals). Also, he has netted 18 of his 22 league goals at home and clearly, this is where he excels. That’s why we back him to score again on home turf.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our second Derby vs Portsmouth prediction is that the game won’t see more than 2 total goals. All of Derby’s last 4 home games went under 2.5 goals. Also, all of Portsmouth’s last 6 matches had fewer than 3 goals in them.

Derby to Win

Our final Derby vs Portsmouth prediction backs the Rams to record the win they so badly need. Derby sit in the playoff positions but have only a 2-point lead so they can’t afford even a draw. At the same time, Portsmouth lost all hope of catching the top 6 just last weekend and their motivation is low. Derby have all the confidence coming into the match as they won 5 of the last 7 home H2Hs (D1 L1). Also, the Rams are undefeated in the last 5 rounds (W3 D2).

Derby vs Portsmouth Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Derby

Derby once again leaned on McGoldrick’s goal to edge Burton 1-0 at home last weekend. It wasn’t a pretty display but the Rams did what was required and in the end, they were deserved winners. This protected their 2-point lead over Peterborough in the race for the last available playoff spot and Derby know that if they keep on winning they will extend their season.

The squad is practically at full strength with only 2 very rarely-used players nursing injuries right now. Could be tempted to keep the starting lineup unchanged, but the options are plenty to refresh things if this is needed.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth beat Accrington 1-0 at home last weekend, but this was a bitter success as results elsewhere meant Pompey’s chances to catch the top 6 are over, they trail Derby by 7 points with only 2 matches left to play.

Coach Mousinho hinted that he might give some of his regulars early leaves so it won’t be a surprise if teenagers and fringe players take to the pitch in the last 2 rounds. Hackett-Fairchild and Tunnicliffe 2 of those mentioned as being offered early holiday break due to fatigue. Not many injury issues otherwise. Only 3 players are sidelined.
