Portsmouth 19/20 to beat Shrewsbury in Saturdays League One matchup
Competition: League One
Market: Portsmouth win
Odds: 19/20 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on their impressive start to the new season, Portsmouth will welcome a struggling Shrewsbury side to Fratton Park on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, although Portsmouth couldn’t land a spot in the playoffs last season, Pompey are enjoying a stellar start to the new campaign. Beating Gillingham 4-0 in the EFL Trophy in midweek, Portsmouth are still to be beaten in the league so far. In their six opening League One matches, Pompey have now won five and drawn one, scoring 12 and conceding three in return. They now hold the best defensive record in the division. Unbeaten in their last five matches, winning four of those, Portsmouth have also recorded three clean sheets on the bounce.
As for the visitors, despite reaching the playoff final last season, it has been a very tough start to the new season for Shrewsbury. In their six opening games, The Shrews are yet to pick up a win this season having drawn three and lost three. Scoring just four in their opening fixtures, they now hold the second worst defensive record in League One and sit 23rd entering September. Losing their last away fixture in a 3-2 loss to Luton, we’re backing Saturday to be another difficult afternoon for The Shrews.
