Back your team with Sky Bet
Pompey will look to get their first points on the board in the Checkatrade Trophy when they host a Reading under-23 side on Tuesday night (7.45pm kick-off).
And Paul Cook’s side are 3/4 favourites with Sky Bet to win their second group stage fixture.
The young Royals – who beat Bristol Rovers back in August – can be backed at 100/30, with the draw at 29/10.
There are odds of 15/2 on the home side securing a 1-0 victory or 8/1 for a more convincing 2-0 triumph.
Pompey are also available at 25/1 to recover from an interval deficit before eventually claiming all three points.
And if you think that it will be the Blues lifting the trophy at Wembley in April, then you can take a punt on them at 50/1.
Please note that all odds are subject to change.
