Back the Blues with Sky Bet

Burton are flying high in League Two, with four wins and a draw from their opening five games.

So the Brewers are understandably 6/5 favourites to collect all three points against Pompey at the Pirelli Stadium on Sunday lunchtime.

But the Blues have also enjoyed a positive start to the campaign, losing just once in the league, and will have plenty of punters backing them at 23/10, while the draw is available at 21/10.

Despite the good form of both sides, they’ve only managed to net 13 goals between them, while shipping just six at the other end, meaning the goalless draw is quite short at 15/2.

Under 2.5 goals is regarded as very possible at 8/13 (over is 6/5) and both teams to score is 5/6.

Burton’s Stuart Beavon is favourite to open the scoring at 5/1 and to net anytime at 11/8. Ryan Taylor leads the Pompey market at 13/2 and 2/1 respectively.

Top tip: Draw and under 2.5 goals in the match at 5/2
