April 16th: Tuesday’s English Double – 3/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

While the Champions League quarter-finals might steal most of Tuesday’s headlines, we have what is a stacked midweek schedule from across England’s professional tiers.

On a night when Portsmouth can officially secure an automatic Championship return, we have a host of season-defining showdowns.

So, for those of you looking to stick on a Tuesday flutter, we have found a pair of eye-catching English betting markets.

19:45 Portsmouth vs Barnsley

While Portsmouth might have eventually fallen short last season in their bid to punch a play-off ticket, Tuesday’s hosts have continued on a major League One romp this time around. Marking their return to Fratton Park holding a four-point buffer over the chasing pack, John Mousinho’s men know that they can officially secure a lucrative Championship return here.

Despite having to settle for a gritty 1-1 stalemate away at leading play-off contenders Bolton over the weekend, the Blues are unbeaten in all of their previous 16 consecutive League One appearances.

With that extended purple patch stemming all the way back to the middle of January, Pompey have also gained a fearsome reputation for their success on home soil.

Last seen at Fratton Park cruising their way to a routine 3-1 victory against Shrewsbury, Mousinho’s men have collected 19 points from just their previous seven showdowns in front of their own supporters.

On the flip side, while Barnsley might have all bit officially secured a play-off ticket for this season, the Tykes are in the midst of an extended wobble and have the feel of a squad seeking a much-needed boost.

Missing out on what they had billed as a real opportunity over the weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 stalemate at home against Reading, Neill Collins’ men have recorded just a single victory from any of their last six League One appearances.

Likewise, suffering consecutive 2-1 defeats against Stevenage and Charlton in their last two showdowns away from Oakwell, the Yorkshire-based outfit will certainly be bracing themselves for another huge challenge on Tuesday night.

It should also be noted, Barnsley have failed to claim a single win from any of their last 10 straight trips to Fratton Park.

19:45 Mansfield vs Accrington Stanley

Continuing to gain a string of plaudits from across League Two this season, Mansfield know that they can take a huge step towards officially punching a third-tier return. Making their return to Field Mill on Tuesday night holding a five-point buffer from slipping out of the automatic promotion spots, the Stags should be smelling a golden opportunity here.

Last seen over the weekend putting in another rampant performance as they stormed their way to a stunning 4-1 romp away at MK Dons, Nigel Clough’s men have now secured back-to-back wins for the first time since the start of March.

With the mood around Nottinghamshire at a red-hot high, the former Burton boss will be calling on attacking talisman David Keillor-Dunn to spearhead their charge on Tuesday night.

Bagging a brace away at MK Dons on Saturday afternoon, the one-time Wrexham man has now scored 21 League Two goals this season and currently sits fourth in the race for the Golden Boot.

While Accrington Stanley might have opened up the 2023/24 campaign with their sights set on securing an immediate League One return, Tuesday’s guests have continued to struggle with their consistency.

Last seen over the weekend putting in a nightmare performance away at Doncaster as they slumped to a 4-0 drumming, John Doolan’s men have claimed just a pair of wins from any of their previous 12 appearances.

Signing off March with a 2-1 defeat at home against Morecambe, the Reds have also continued to show some extended issues away from the Crown Ground.

Including another 4-0 loss at the hands of Wrexham last month, it is worth highlighting that Accrington have shipped 18 goals in just their previous eight matchups outside of Lancashire.
