​Portsmouth vs Leyton Orient: Top free betting tips

Will leaders Pompey rediscover their consistency? Our Portsmouth vs Leyton Orient prediction is for a hard-fought and probably scrappy home win. 

Pompey remain in first place but their form has suffered a sharp decline lately. Portsmouth won once in the last 5 rounds (D2 L2). That said they remain the best home team in League One – W8 D4 L1. Leyton Orient improved their form from mid-December onward – W3 D1 L1. They are yet to beat a top team on the road this season though. 

Half with the most goals prediction: Second

Both teams tend to score the vast majority of their goals after the interval. So far, Portsmouth scored 59.4%, or 25 of 42, of their league goals in the second half. For the O’s this figure is even higher – 64.0%, or 16 out of 25 goals. This is why our first Portsmouth vs Leyton Orient prediction is that most of the goals will be scored in the second half. 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Portsmouth to win

Our next Portsmouth vs Leyton Orient prediction backs the league leaders to record a home win. Pompey had been impressive at home all season – W8 D4 L1. To add to that Portsmouth won all of the last 4 H2Hs. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Portsmouth

Our final Portsmouth vs Leyton Orient prediction is for a 2-1 Pompey win. This was the exact scoreline with which Portsmouth won 2 of the last 3 games vs the O’s. To add to that Portsmouth scored exactly 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 home league wins.

How far will Leyton’s fans travel to Portsmouth?

Considering the frosty forecast for this Saturday we expect to see many Leyton fans embark on this journey to the south coast in search of warmer weather. The driving distance between London’s suburb Leyton and Portsmouth is only 72 miles (116km) but getting in and out of London is a notoriously slow process on Saturday so Leyton’s fans should be prepared to travel close to 2 hours. 

A much better option is to take one of the many regular train connections and by train, it should take only about 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach Portsmouth. 

​Portsmouth vs Leyton Orient: Tickets

Our understanding is that at least at the moment of writing there are still plenty of tickets available for sale, both for home and away fans. Tickets for this game can be purchased in all the usual ways – online, via the phone, or from a Ticket Office at either ground. Tickets will be up for sale on the day of the match too, but a £2.00 extra charge will apply for those. 

The price of the tickets varies only slightly from £25.00 to £26.00 for adults depending on the stand. Leyton’s fans will have to pay £25.00 for a ticket for this game.
