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

Portsmouth to Win

Our first Shrewsbury vs Portsmouth prediction backs the visitors to record a win they need much more. Pompey still chase a playoff spot so they need the points. At the same time, Shrewsbury lost all hope of catching the top 6 a month ago and since then they look to have lost all interest. The Shrews lost all of their last 4 league games and conceded 11 goals in those. Also, Portsmouth won 3 of the last 4 away H2Hs and are unbeaten in any of the last 6 matches between the sides (W4 D2).

Bishop to Score Anytime

Our next free betting tip back Pompey’s top goalscorer Bishop (19 goals) to continue his recent hot streak against a defence that is conceding on average 3 goals per game over the last 5 weeks. Bishop scored 7 goals in just the last 10 rounds. He also scored in 4 of Portsmouth’s last 5 away games.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Shrewsbury vs Portsmouth prediction is for the game to have less than 3 total goals scored. This has been the case in 10 of the last 12 H2H clashes. Also, only 1 of Portsmouth’s last 5 games went over 2.5 goals.

Shrewsbury vs Portsmouth Lineups and Team News

Shrewsbury

The Shrews recorded their fourth defeat in a row when deservedly beaten 1-2 on their visit to Barnsley. This was the sixth game in just the last 7 rounds in which Shrewsbury conceded more than 1 goal. Ever since the hope to make the playoffs vanished in early March the displays had dropped off a cliff.

Latest news

Coach Cotterill is not one to rotate much and he’s not expected to make too many changes to the lineup. He has some serious injury issues right now though. Last year’s regulars Nurse (left-back) and Udoh (striker) + midfielder Bayliss are all sidelined. Also, Bowman misses suspended and Pyke and Street are deemed doubtful.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth are unbeaten in the last 6 rounds but their playoff chances suffered a blow on Easter Monday when only able to draw 0-0 at home vs Morecambe. Pompey have only themselves to blame for not winning this match as they kept missing chances. The hope still remains though and wins are badly needed.

Latest news

The team’s star playmaker Morrell remains suspended. Also, Swanson and 3 others are out injured. At least, the team’s second-best goalscorer and very influential defender Oglivier should be ready to return after recovering from illness.
