Back the Blues with Sky Bet

Pompey will be looking to avoid being the victims of an FA Cup upset for the second year running when they host Macclesfield at the weekend.

And the Blues are 4/11 favourites to progress to the second round by beating their non-league opponents.

The visitors – who beat Alfreton to reach this stage of the competition – can be backed at 15/2, with the draw at 18/5.

If you fancy Paul Cook’s side to breeze through then the odds of 16/1 on a 4-0 triumph might be tempting.

However, those who think that Macclesfield might provide a sterner test can back a 2-1 victory at 7/1.

Matt Tubbs leads the first goalscorer market at 100/30, with Adam McGurk, Gareth Evans and Christian Burgess following on 4/1, 9/2 and 28/1 respectively.

We might only be at the first round, but any particularly optimistic supporters who fancy Pompey to lift the FA Cup at Wembley in May should back them now at 500/1.

Please note that odds are subject to change.
