The Top Picks and Oxford United vs Portsmouth Prediction

Portsmouth or Draw

The home team have gone 15 consecutive matches without a loss and there is no sign of this changing. The visitors have gone several games without defeat but have been far from convincing. The last two results between these two teams are a win for Portsmouth and a draw. That is why the first Oxford United vs Portsmouth prediction is that the away team will win or at least get another draw.

Over 2.5 Goals

Both teams have very important things to fight for. They need to win to stay away from the relegation zone, so they have to go all out for the win. If the away team loses they will still stay in mid-table, as they have little to lose to give up everything to get the three points and fight for a place in the promotion playoffs until the last matchday. So both Oxford United vs Portsmouth line ups are likely to finish off on many occasions and show us a spectacle of goals.

BTTS

We expect to see both teams score in this duel. One of the reasons we expect it to be this way is that 9 in the last 10 games in which the two met we saw BTTS. Although the home side didn’t score in their last game they had a total of 24 shots so there is a good chance they will put the ball in the back of the net on this occasion.

A Quick Oxford United vs Portsmouth Analysis

Oxford United

Liam Manning’s side is still on a disastrous run of 15 consecutive games without a win, in which they have picked up just five points.  It is impressive that despite this disastrous run they are still not in the relegation places, but the only thing that separates them from the relegation zone is the difference between them and the relegation zone. In their last match, they played at home to Bolton, a team that only needed 7 minutes to open the scoring. Oxford tried to equalise and despite dominating the rest of the game failed to put the ball in the opposition’s net.

Portsmouth

For the seventh game in a row, John Mousinho’s side remains unbeaten although they have won only three games in that period. With just four games left, Portsmouth needs to win as many points as possible and hope their direct rivals stumble. That would be the only way for them to take a promotion playoff spot. Last time out, they visited Shrewsbury Town, and despite going behind, managed to salvage a point with a late goal from Marlon Pack.
