BETTING PREVIEW: HARTLEPOOL v POMPEY

28 April 2016

Back the Blues with Sky Bet

Pompey will look to keep their slim hopes of automatic promotion alive with victory at Hartlepool this weekend.

Paul Cook’s side are 3/4 favourites with Sky Bet to collect all three points in the north-east.

The hosts – who sit 16th in the table and have nothing but pride to play for – can be backed at 15/4, with the draw at 13/5.

Pompey have drawn 0-0 at Victoria Park in each of the past three seasons and a repeat of that scenario is on offer at 9/1.

But the Blues will be in search of a win, so you might fancy the 11/2 available for a 1-0 triumph or 7/1 for a 2-1 scoreline.

Michael Smith leads the first goalscorer market at 9/2, with Conor Chaplin, Gary Roberts and Adam Barton following at 11/2, 13/2 and 20/1 respectively.

More optimistic punters might fancy the odds of 150/1 on Pompey still finishing inside the top three or at least back them at 15/8 to secure promotion.

Please note that odds are subject to change.
