Ipswich vs Portsmouth – Predictions, Odds & Best Betting Tips

Ipswich vs Portsmouth in front of circa 28,000 fans doesn’t sound like much of a third tier clash but that’s exactly what it is with both clubs desperately vying for promotion. The winner of this game will take a big step in that direction but who will get it? Find out with our Ipswich vs Portsmouth preview here along with the predictions and free tips we mention along the way.

Ipswich to win

We begin our predictions by backing Ipswich to win this match. You can look at their last two games against fellow League One big boys and say they’ve failed to win but the performances have been better than the points return suggests and, in truth, we could easily be sat here talking about them having six points in the bank. Portsmouth, who are yet to lose this season, are obviously going to make a game of this too but because of how prior weeks have played out, there is real pressure on the hosts to deliver and we think they will have learned from their past two games. It’s also worth noting that Ipswich took Portsmouth apart 4-0 around this time last year as they took four points from them last season.

Both teams to score

This next tip is much more heavily stat driven than the first as we back both teams to score. Ipswich and Portsmouth have both scored in each of their last 10 games. With the sides banging goals in with that sort of consistency, the idea of a clean sheet doesn’t seem particularly likely!

Over 2.5 goals

Last but not least we bring you an over 2.5 goals tip. Ipswich have gone over the 2.5 goal mark in three of their last five home games averaging 3.4 goals per game. Portsmouth meanwhile have seen two of their last four away games go north of that 2.5 marker with an average of 3.0 per game across that period. Combine that with three of the last five head to heads seeing at least three goals and you’ve got a nice looking wager on your hands.

Ipswich vs Portsmouth: Team News

Ipswich

Ipswich have made a strong start to the season but lost their unbeaten record last weekend as they threw away a 1-0 lead at the now league leaders, Plymouth. That was the second week on the bounce where Ipswich gave up a winning position against fellow promotion contenders leaving question marks over their ability to get the job done against the bigger teams in the league. Can they bust that myth as they host unbeaten Portsmouth? One thing they’ll have in their favour is the return from international duty of Wes Burns.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth are now the only side in League One that haven’t tasted defeat but that ‘0’ is going to come under real pressure at Portman Road come 3pm today. Pompey have a good away record in the league but they’ve notably struggled on the road in cup competitions having lost to Newport and, on penalties, to Crawley within their last five fixtures. That noted, in Colby Bishop they have an attacker that is capable of giving Ipswich’s backline a torrid afternoon; he’s scored five in just nine games so far this season.
