Back the Blues with Sky Bet

Pompey are looking to recover from successive league defeats when they travel to Southend this weekend.

The Blues are 21/10 with Sky Bet to secure all three points, but it is the hosts who are favourites at 5/4. The draw is available at 12/5.

Lee Barnard and Barry Corr lead the first goalscorer market at 11/2, with Shaquile Coulthirst also tipped at 6/1.

Ryan Taylor and Craig Westcarr are favourites to net first for Pompey at 13/2, with Miles Storey and Patrick Agyemang further back at 7/1.

Neither side have been prolific in the league this season, so under 1.5 goals looks a decent bet at 2/1 (over is 4/11).

It also explains why a 1-0 scoreline is on offer at 3/1 for Southend and 7/2 for Pompey.

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.
