If you can’t seem to decide on a bet for Portsmouth vs Sheff Wed, check our top betting predictions for this duel here:

Portsmouth or Draw

Pompey might have only an outside chance to make the playoffs but they sure give it their all to try and breach the gap. Portsmouth had been near-perfect at home in their last 5 league games (W4 D1). They also held the Owls to draws in 2 of the last H2Hs. At the same time, league leaders Wednesday have won only 1 of their last 3 away games. That is why our first Portsmouth vs Sheff Wed prediction is for the hosts to avoid defeat.

BTTS

With our next Portsmouth vs Sheff Wed prediction we want to suggest that the game will be open and that both teams will be able to score. The Owls top the table for a reason and they have now scored at least 1 goal in 11 consecutive rounds. Pompey also score regularly at home and 11 of their 17 home league matches so far produced BTTS outcomes. Last, but not least, the teams offered a goal thriller in the season-opener when they drew 3-3.

Smith to Score Anytime

Our final Portsmouth vs Sheff Wed prediction ventures into the Goalscoring Market. We back Wednesday’s in-form striker Smith to find the back of the net again. Smith has scored 7 goals in just the last 10 rounds. He also attempts 4.5 shots per game in those 10 matches and this makes him by far the most aggressive forward Wednesday have.

Portsmouth vs Sheff Wed Lineups and Team News

Portsmouth

Portsmouth suffered their first defeat in the last 6 rounds on Tuesday when losing 1-3 against Barnsley. This likely ended all realistic hopes of making the playoffs so Pompey will be hurting.

Top scorer Bishop (14 goals) remains the main hope up front and he has now scored in 3 consecutive rounds. Michael Jacobs could return to the starting lineup for this one, he is used as number 10 right now. Lowery had a poor showing in midweek though and he might be benched.

Pompey have no fresh injury issues, but they remain without 5 long-term absentees. Among them are the main left-back Swanson and the important inner midfielder Pack.

Sheff Wed

Wednesday extended their amazing unbeaten league run to 21 last weekend with a hard-fought 1-0 home win vs Peterborough. Scored the winner very late on and didn’t play that well. Still, defensively looked very solid and extending the unbeaten run was never really in doubt.

Will have to deal with selection issues in defence for this match as 2 regulars from the back line will be absent. Johnson misses suspended, while Ihiekwe is sidelined. A third important defender Reece James is still a doubt, but he has a chance to be passed fit on time according to an admission from the manager himself.
