Back the Blues with Sky Bet

Pompey opened their league campaign by coming from behind to pick up a point at Exeter.

But there was more joy for Cambridge, who celebrated their return to the Sky Bet Football League after a nine-year absence with victory over Plymouth.

The hosts are even money for victory this weekend, however, while United can be backed at 13/5. The draw is available at 12/5.

Ryan Taylor and Craig Westcarr lead the first goalscorer market at 5/1 each, with Tuesday night's cup goal hero Miles Storey at 6/1.

Under 2.5 goals is 8/11 and that bet would have been landed in both teams’ opening fixtures. 

A goalless draw comes in at 17/2, but those expecting the keepers to be kept busy might want to consider the 20/1 that both sides score in each half.

Top tip: Both teams to score in the first half at 4/1.

Sky Bet are the title sponsor of The Football League. This season, a £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund will go to a Football League club to spend on players in the January 2015 transfer window. 

Fans who bet with Sky Bet generate Transfer Fund Tokens and go into a random draw to win a £5,000 prize – and the £250,000 Sky Bet Transfer Fund for their Football League club.
