Back the Blues with Sky Bet
There have not been many occasions this season when Pompey entered a match as underdogs with the bookies.
But, unsurprisingly, it is Premier League side Bournemouth who are 11/8
favourites with Sky Bet to progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup at Fratton Park this weekend.
The League Two hosts can be backed at 2/1
to cause an upset, with the draw available at 23/10
Pompey won 5-1 the only other time they faced the Cherries in this competition and a repeat of that scenario is priced at 200/1
A more realistic punter might instead fancy the 10/1
on offer for a more conservative 2-1 triumph.
Marc McNulty leads the first goalscorer market at 13/2
, with Conor Chaplin, Gareth Evans and Adam Webster following at 7/1
Matt Ritchie is 15/2
to strike first against his former club, with fellow former Fratton favourite Sylvain Distin at 50/1
But if you think that Pompey’s cup adventure will go beyond the fourth round, take a look at the 16/1
available for them being the Football League side to progress the furthest.
