Portsmouth 8/11 to beat Gillingham in Tuesday’s EFL matchup
Competition: EFL Cup
Market: Portsmouth win
Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365
Looking to build on their impressive start to the League One campaign, Portsmouth will welcome Gillingham to Fratton Park on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, although Portsmouth may have missed out on the playoffs by three points last season, The Blues have battled back at the start of the new campaign. In their six opening League One appearances, Portsmouth have won five, drawn one and are yet to be beaten entering September. Scoring 12 and conceding just three in return, Pompey currently hold the joint best defensive record in the division. As for their recent form, Portsmouth are now unbeaten in their last four since their Cup defeat to AFC Wimbledon and have won four of those outings. Along with scoring nine in their unbeaten run, Portsmouth have kept a clean sheet in their last two
As for the visitors, after spending the majority of last season battling it out at the foot of the League One table, Gillingham’s current form would suggest they could be in for a similar task this time around. In their opening six games, they have won two, drawn one and lost three, scoring nine and conceding 10 in return. As for their recent form, although Gillingham may have won their opening two games, the visitors have now failed to win any of their last five matches in all competitions and losing four of those. Now shipping nine in their last four, we believe this could be a very difficult night for The Gills.
