Blues Betting: Southend (A)

Take a punt on Pompey with Sky Bet

7 January 2019

Checkatrade Trophy

Pompey reached the fourth round of the FA Cup at the weekend – and now they are aiming to do the same in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Kenny Jackett’s side are the 5/4 favourites with Sky Bet to get the job done inside 90 minutes on Tuesday evening.

The hosts – who beat Luton on penalties to reach this stage of the competition – can be backed at 15/8, with the draw at 11/5.

Pompey won 2-0 when the sides met at Fratton Park in the league last month and a repeat of that scenario carries odds of 10/1.

Punters might instead be tempted by a 1-0 victory for the Blues at 7/1 or even a comprehensive 3-0 triumph at 18/1.

You could also take a look at the visitors finishing each half on top at 6/1 or keeping a clean sheet at 9/5.

Jackett has suggested that he will make multiple changes, so fans might want to steer away from the favourites in the first goalscorer market.

Andre Green bagged a dramatic winner at Carrow Road and is priced 17/2 to net the opener, with Louis Dennis, David Wheeler and Christian Burgess at 13/2, 10/1 and 50/1 respectively.

Those who believe Jackett’s men will end up lifting the trophy at Wembley in March, should note they are the second favourites at 6/1.

Please gamble responsibly and remember that all odds are subject to change. When the fun stops, stop.
