Note: The odds from Betfred are correct at the time of writing.

Victory for the away team

Portsmouth is our favourite to win this fixture based on in-depth analysis. The visitors have a better defence in this matchup after recording four clean sheets in 3W and 1D in the four games played so far. They kicked off the season with an away victory in Fleetwood and come to this game with a barren draw against Doncaster Rovers. Other the other hand, Wigan Athletic have two clean sheets in the first four matches and have leaked four goals within that duration. The visitors are third on the table with ten points and three points clear of 9th placed Wigan. Notably, Portsmouth and first-placed Sheffield United are the only League One teams with clean sheets after four matches.

Under 2.5

We expect a tense game on Saturday when Wigan hosts Portsmouth. These teams have had fewer than three goals in nine of the last 14 meetings. And given that both sides have shown glimpses of strong defending early in the season, we expect a low scoreline on matchday.

Both teams to score: No

A tense fixture between Wigan and Portsmouth is our League One game of the weak. We think this will be a one-sided scoring affair with only a few goals at full-time.

Match Preview: Portsmouth Looking for the Fifth Consecutive Clean Sheet in League One

A trip to Wigan comes with a lot of expectations for Portsmouth. Can the visitors get their fifth clean sheet in five League One games? Our match preview sheds more light on this fixture.

Wigan Athletic

Wigan Athletic hopes for a better campaign in the 2021/22 League One season. The hosts struggled to stay afloat last season and with an improved defence, head coach, Leam Richardson hopes to turn things around. The hosts survived relegation by a whisker last season having finished 20th and only a point above the red zone. However, with only one loss, two wins and a draw in the first league matches, Wigan hopes to collect at least three points from Portsmouth again in the new season even though they did it on the road last season.

Portsmouth

Portsmouth has collected ten points in the first four games. A big boost for the visitors is their phenomenal defending. With four clean sheets in four league games, Portsmouth seems is focused on earning a promotion to Championship after losing 2-1 to Milwall in the single-leg EFL Cup fixture this season. The visitors have record three clean sheets before this game and should fancy another one if head coach, Danny Cowley, gets his tactics right once again.
