Back the Blues with Sky Bet
Pompey make the trip to League Two leaders Northampton this weekend.
But it is Paul Cook’s side who are 6/5
favourites with Sky Bet to claim all three points in their final fixture before Christmas.
The hosts – who have six more points than the Blues – can be backed at 9/4
, while the draw is on offer at 23/10
A fit-again Ricky Holmes came off the bench to net the Cobblers’ winner at Luton last week and is 10/1
to punish his former side by scoring the first goal.
However, Marc McNulty leads that market at 9/2
, while Caolan Lavery, Gareth Evans and Adam Webster are available at 13/2
Pompey have drawn their last two away games 2-2 and you can get odds of 12/1
on that happening for a third time.
But if you think the Blues will provide some festive cheer, then 9/1
for a 2-0 triumph might take your fancy.
