Portsmouth vs Bolton Odds, Free Betting Tips & Predictions

These are our predictions and tips for this match:

Portsmouth or Draw

Pompey had been solid at home all season and they’ve lost just 2 of their 16 home league games so far (W6 D8). Also, Portsmouth dominate their home matches vs Bolton and Pompey had been able to win 4 of the last 5 such clashes. This is why with our first Portsmouth vs Bolton prediction we pick the hosts to be able to avoid defeat.

Under 2.5 Goals

This will be a matchup between two sides that had defended well lately. This is the reason why our next Portsmouth vs Bolton prediction is for the game to have less than 3 total goals scored.

Pompey kept 3 consecutive clean sheets, while Bolton failed to even score a goal in 3 of their last 4 visits to Portsmouth. In fact, 5 of the last 6 H2H clashes have gone under 2.5 total goals. So have 3 of Pompey’s last 4 home league games.

BTTS – No

In continuation of the previous Portsmouth vs Bolton prediction we also think that not both teams will be able to score.

All of Pompey’s last 3 matches had no BTTS. So did 4 of Bolton’s last 5 away games. And to add to that, in only 1 of the last 6 clashes between the sides both teams managed to score.

Portsmouth vs Bolton Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Portsmouth

Achieved an easy 4-0 home win against Cheltenham on Saturday and the playoff hopes remain just about alive. The recent form had been decent and only 1 defeat was suffered in the last 5 rounds. Managed to keep 3 consecutive clean sheets too.

Important centre-back Swanson and holding midfielder Pack remain sidelined, but they have been out for a long so Pompey are well used to playing without them right now.

As it stands, they are 10th in the League One table, 12 points adrift of the play off slots. Their recent form is impressive with four wins and two draws from their last six outings. They have three matches in hand over their next rivals and will back themselves to reduce this gap. In addition, they will be wary of their rivals, who have registered successive victories at their expense.

Bolton

Bolton are in a very strong position to secure a playoff spot after being able to win 6 of their last 7 matches. When the Trotters get going they can score goals at will, but they can’t afford to slow down right now as too many teams behind them remain in the hunt.

Winger N’Lundulu has recovered from an injury and he could make a return to the starting 11 in this one. Still missing 4 sidelined players, among them 3 important squad members. Bolton’s defence is stretched right now with both Johnston and Iredale out injured. Also, the main anchor-man Williams is sidelined.

While Portsmouth are gaining steam, Bolton are not one to be left behind. They are going at their League One rivals in full force and the results have followed with eight wins and just two losses. This period of prosperity has also seen them triumph in the EFL Trophy, making little work of Accrington Stanley on the road. All eyes will be on the partnership of Dion Charles and Victor Adeboyejo to deliver the goals and get them past another hurdle.
