Portsmouth to Win
The guests are the better team on paper, they are in better form at the moment, and they've won four of the last five head-to-head meetings with Wimbledon, so it's clear why they are favourites in this match. Furthermore, Portsmouth has expereince in this competition since they've already won it once before, so our prediction is for Portsmouth to win this game.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
Four of the previous five duels between Wimbledon and Portsmouth have gone over 2.5 total goals, so there's no reason to expect anything else in this match. Furthermore, Wimbledon has averaged 3.33 goals per game in League One so far in the season, which is the second-best result in the league. That being said, Portsmouth has the worst average in the league with just one goal per game, but we still expect to see some goals in this match.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Both teams have scored in three of the last five matches played by these two teams, so this sounds like a reasonable bet to us. Furthermore, both teams have scored in 83% of all matches played by Wimbledon so far in the league. However, this hasn't yet happened in any of the Portsmouth's matches in League One, so keep that in mind as well.
Wimbledon vs Portsmouth preview: Can Wimbledon surprise us all?
While the guests are in much better form at the moment, the home team has reasons to hope for a good result in this match. So, let's take a closer look at both teams now:
The team from London had a solid start to the new season in League One with two wins, three draws and one loss. In addition to this, Wimbledon reached the third round of the EFL Cup, which is a very good result for them. So, there are positive things going at the club and the team can certainly hope for a good result in the EFL Trophy as well.
The former Premier League team has started the new season in League One very well since they are currently sitting in the fifth place with three wins, one draw, and one loss after the first five games. However, Portsmouth failed to reach the third round of the EFL Cup after they lost to Millwall in the second round.
