Back your side with Sky Bet
Pompey turn their attentions from league to the EFL Cup when they travel to Coventry on Tuesday.
The hosts are unsurprisingly 6/5 favourites to win the first round tie after 90 minutes (8/13 to qualify), while Paul Cook’s side can be backed at 9/4 (6/5).
But the Blues shocked Derby at this stage of the competition last term and a repeat of that scoreline is available at 10/1.
Pompey are expected to make plenty of changes and Noel Hunt looks a good bet for the first goalscorer at 7/1.
Elsewhere in that market, Curtis Main, Kyle Bennett and Adam Barton can be backed at 15/2, 10/1 and 25/1 respectively.
Punters looking beyond the first round – and who are particularly optimistic – might also fancy the 1,000/1 on offer for the Blues winning the whole competition.
