Lincoln vs Portsmouth – Free Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

These are our predictions and tips for this match:

Portsmouth to Win

This first Lincoln vs Portsmouth prediction might be surprising for some considering the Imps are yet to lose at home this season. However, a closer look shows that Lincoln actually won only 3 of their 14 home league matches so far, with the other 11 games ending in draws.

Portsmouth on the other hand are perfect historically on their visits to Lincoln – 3 wins in 3 previous trips. Pompey enjoy huge dominance in the H2H of this fixture – (W5 D1 L1). That’s why we believe they will be able to win again.

Bishop to Score Anytime

Portsmouth’s main forward threat Bishop is among the top strikers in League One. He has already accumulated 12 league goals and had been mightily unlucky not to add more goals to his tally in recent weeks.

Bishop was denied by the woodwork 3 times in just the last 4 rounds. He had 3.6 shot attempts in those 4 matches and really it was mainly bad luck that prevented him from scoring.

We think Bishop is well overdue for his 13th goal and that’s why we give this Lincoln vs Portsmouth prediction.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Lincoln vs Portsmouth prediction is that there will be under 2.5 total goals in the match. Considering that this had been the case in 10 of Lincoln’s 14 home games so far this season this seems likely to happen again.

Portsmouth are also a cautious team and 4 of their last 6 league games produced less than 2.5 goals. To add to that Lincoln will be without their top goalscorer House (7 goals) in this match as he is serving a ban.

Lincoln vs Portsmouth Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Lincoln

Lincoln were fortunate to hold off Derby to a 1-1 away draw on Tuesday. The Imps played large parts of the second half of this game reduced to ten men. Still, with only 1 defeat in the last 8 rounds, the confidence in the squad is good.

Lincoln used the same starting XI in all of the last 3 rounds, but now fatigue and selection issues will see changes. Top goalscorer House will be absent due to suspension. This should see the winter signing Shodipo starting up front.

Useful winger Madnroiu also could miss as he is nursing a knock.

Portsmouth

Stopped 3-game winless run on Tuesday with scrappy, but deserved, 1-0 home victory over Burton. Still hold slim hope of making the playoffs bit for that will need a long winning streak.

The squad will be boosted by the returns from injuries of the main goalie Macey and winger Curtis. Important centre-back Swanson and holding midfielder Pack remain sidelined though.
