MK Dons or Draw

Our first MK Dons vs Portsmouth prediction backs the hosts to avoid a defeat. The Dons badly need the points in their bid to survive and they will feel confident coming into this match after being able to win 4 of the last 5 H2H clashes. MK Dons also hit a purple patch of form recently and they collected 10 points from their last 4 matches (W3 D1).

Half With Most Goals – Second

Our next free betting tip is for the game to see more goals scored in the second half. The Dons don’t score or concede on average in the first half at home. They don’t score their first goal at home until the 53rd minute and don’t concede until the 47th. Also, both teams score the majority of their goals in the second half. For Portsmouth, that figure is 70.5%, and for MK Dons 53.8%.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both teams struggle to score goals though so we don’t think there will be more than 2 total goals in this match. All of MK Dons last 8 home games had 2 or fewer goals scored. Also, the last 2 H2Hs hosted by MK Dons went under 2.5 goals.

MK Dons vs Portsmouth Lineups and Team News

MK Dons

The Dons saw their 3-game winning streak come to an end away against Wycombe. They still earned a deserved draw though and continue to extend the gap between themselves and the relegation zone. Conceded just 1 goal in the last 4 rounds and this has been the key to them earning 10 points from those 4 games.

Latest news

It is very likely that the starting lineup will remain unchanged. None of the 3 long-term absentees is fit yet. Among them is the important centre-back O’Hora.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth did the required minimum to edge bottom-dwellers 1-0 at home and keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Pompey had been lacking consistency on the road all season though and they really need a small miracle to leapfrog 4 good teams in the next few weeks in order to make the top 6.

Latest news

Some changes to the lineup are possible. The attack could have a different look as Pigott is back after a three-game ban. The options remain somewhat limited with 5 players currently nursing injuries. However, from them, the only important squad member is the wing-back Swanson.
