Our Carlisle vs Portsmouth prediction is for an easy win for the visiting league leaders. Can the Cumbrians find a way to cause an upset? 

This last vs first clash is important for both teams for very different reasons. Carlisle badly need wins to even stand a chance of survival. Pompey also need all the points as their fight for direct promotion is raging right now. Which of these sides with very different fortunes so far will prevail? 

Correct outcome prediction: Portsmouth to win

Our first Carlisle vs Portsmouth prediction backs the visiting league leaders to grab the win against the bottom-dwellers Carlisle. The Cumbrians are in free fall right now after losing 6 in a row. Also, Pompey are near-perfect in the last 4 H2Hs – W3 D1. 

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

We expect a contest in which both teams will be taking risks and this should see at least 3 total goals being scored. All of the last 5 H2Hs, as well as all of Carlisle’s last 6 matches, went over 2.5 goals. This explains our second Carlisle vs Portsmouth prediction. 

​​Correct score prediction: 3-0 to Portsmouth

As tradition dictates our final Carlisle vs Portsmouth prediction looks at the final score. We think Pompey could easily storm away to an easy 3-0 victory in this match. This was the exact scoreline in 2 of Portsmouth’s last 4 wins vs Carlisle. 

Also, Pompey kept clean sheets in all of their last 4 away league wins, with 2 of those triumphs being with that 3-0 scoreline.
