PORTSMOUTH v LUTON TOWN PREDICTIONS, BETTING TIPS & MATCH PREVIEWS

Monday, 2nd January 2017, 3pm. Fratton Park

Two promotion chasing sides will clash at Fratton Park as Portsmouth welcome high-flying Luton Town in the standout fixture of the 24th match day of League Two.

The pair are only separated by one place in the standings and both currently sit in the play-off zone, confident that they can mount a second half of the season push for automatic promotion.

Pompey won the meeting between the two at Kenilworth Road back in November – Paul Cook’s men came from a goal down to pull off an impressive 3-1 victory.

Of their five meetings in League Two across the past two-and-a-half seasons, the south coast side have won three and drawn two against the Hatters.

  • Draw 11/4 – Bet 365, Betfair
  • Luton 3/1 – various

Anytime scorer odds

Gary Roberts 13/8 – various – the 32-year-old has scored seven times in 21 appearances this season as his career in League Two shows no sign of slowing.

Conor Chaplin 9/5 – Bet Stars, betfair – the teenager has netted five times this season and is an increasingly integral part of the side at Portsmouth.

Danny Hylton 7/4 – various– Luton’s top scorer with 11 this season after a summer move from Oxford, scored against Portsmouth in November’s meeting

Cameron McGeehan 9/4 various – the former Northern Irish youth international has been in fine goal scoring form again for the Hatters – chipping in with eight goals from midfield.


Portsmouth v Luton Town Betting tips

Both teams to score No 1/1 – Bet Victor, Paddy Power – Nathan Jones’ side have conceded only seven times in eleven games on their travels while Portsmouth are solid at the back, the game should be low scoring and the probability is at least one side will fail to find the net.

Luton to win 3/1 – various – Luton have won two more points on the road (19) than Pompey have earned at home, with the Hatters counter-attacking style often paying dividends away from home and especially against fellow top sides. The game should be tight but the odds of Luton edging it are great value.


Verdict

The game will be tight between two evenly-matched sides but the market gives value to the visitors especially owing to their strong away form to date.

They have the players to frustrate the hosts and hurt their defence – the Hatters are unbeaten away since September and it would be a slight surprise if that run ended, despite Pompey’s strong campaign.
