Portsmouth vs Cheltenham Free Betting Tips and Predictions

With little to separate these teams in terms of their recent form, the Portsmouth vs Cheltenham odds are very close and below we have tried to give you our best free betting tips.

Cheltenham or Draw

For our first Portsmouth vs Cheltenham prediction we venture into the double chance market and think that the visitors will be able to avoid defeat. Undoubtedly Cheltenham’s motivation is much higher right now as they try to avoid relegation. At the same time, Pompey look stuck in mid-table for the rest of the season so they are already starting to plan for the next campaign.

Portsmouth have been able to win just 1 of their last 5 league games (D2 L2), while on all their struggles Cheltenham avoided defeats in 3 of the last 5 rounds. Cheltenham also went toe-to-toe with high-flyers Plymouth on Tuesday night before eventually losing on penalties in an EFL Trophy semifinal.

Under 2.5 Goals

This matchup has produced not many goals in recent times, none of the last 3 H2H had gone over 2.5 total goals. Portsmouth have lost their edge of late too. Pompey failed to go over 2.5 goals in any of the last 3 rounds and in any of the last 3 home games. Cheltenham are notoriously passive on the road all season – only 12 away goals scored in 16 matches. All this, makes us pick this tip as our second Portsmouth vs Cheltenham prediction.

BTTS – No

Our final Portsmouth vs Cheltenham prediction is a continuation of the previous one. With both sides struggling in attack right now we think it’s logical that not both will be able to score. Portsmouth saw only 3 of their last 10 league games having BTTS finishes. For Cheltenham, only 1 of their last 5 games saw both sides scoring. To add to that, 3 of the last 4 matches between the sides saw at least one of them keeping a clean sheet.

Portsmouth vs Cheltenham Lineups and Other News

Portsmouth

Portsmouth were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw by 10-men Lincoln last weekend and this all but ended any realistic chances of fighting for promotion. Pompey have won just 1 of their last 5 league games now and the confidence drained out of the squad lately.

Continue to be restricted in their selection choices too with 6 players currently out injured. Among those important centre-back Swanson and key inner midfielder Pack.

Cheltenham

Cheltenham have an identical form to Portsmouth over the last 5 rounds (W1 D2 L2). The busy schedule saw Cheltenham involved in a tough EFL Trophy test against Plymouth on Tuesday too, with the game going all the way to penalties. As a result, fatigue might be an issue.

Recently signed midfielder Rea should provide fresh legs though and he is available for debut in this one. Still missing 2 key defenders due to injuries – the main left-back Williams and starting centre-back Freestone.
