Competition: League One

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to widen their buffer in the play-off places here, Oxford will make the trip to Fratton Park on Tuesday night when they meet Portsmouth.

Starting with the hosts, managing to mount a stunning comeback on home soil a few days ago, there is no doubt that Portsmouth will be desperate to build off of that remarkable turnaround. Coming from 3-0 down against Fleetwood and snatching a point at Fratton Park, Danny Cowley’s men have enjoyed a largely impressive run over the past three weeks. In fact, the one-time Lincoln boss has seen his side muster 10 points from just their last four League One outings. Almost finding themselves sat in third-tier limbo and now 10 points adrift of finding a route into the play-off places, the Blues have gained a reputation for their lively outcomes at both ends of the pitch. It should be highlighted, Portsmouth have seen five of their last six matchups across all formats finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, storming their way to what was an action-packed 4-2 win at home against Cambridge over the weekend, the mood in Oxford’s camp should be at a real high. Sat in pole position to clinch a play-off spot this year, Karl Robinson’s side have won each of their last three outings. With their recent purple patch highlighted by a 4-0 romp against Charlton on February 19th, the former MK Dons boss will be hoping for his side to lay down another marker at Fratton Park here. With Matt Taylor now bagging three goals in as many outings, we could be in for another lively affair on Tuesday night. With Oxford claiming a 3-2 win when they faced off against Portsmouth for their reverse meeting just last month, we’re backing a similar enjoyable affair in midweek.

Bet: Both teams to score at Portsmouth vs Oxford United 7/10 for Tuesday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
