​Oxford vs Portsmouth: Top free betting tips

Our Oxford vs Portsmouth prediction is for a tight game that could easily finish without a winner. Will both teams get on the scoresheet yet again when they face each other? 

The U’s lost their consistency in recent weeks and they have shown unpredictable form in the last 6 rounds – W3 and L3. Despite that Oxford remain just outside the top 6 and with all to play for. Leaders Portsmouth also lost their form lately (W3 D1 L2). They struggle to beat the U’s over the years too. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our first Oxford vs Portsmouth prediction backs both teams to find the back of the net. This has happened in 9 of the last 10 H2Hs. Also, 6 of Oxford’s last 7 league games had BTTS outcomes. 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Amazingly, 7 of the last 10 clashes between the teams ended in draws, including earlier this season. To add to that 3 of Oxford’s 4 league draws so far this season had come at the Kassam Stadium. This is why our next Oxford vs Portsmouth prediction is for the game to finish in a draw. To add to all of the above, Pompey have the second-most draws in the division with 8 already.

​​​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

As is our tradition the final Oxford vs Portsmouth prediction is our attempt to predict the correct score. We think yet another 1-1 draw between these sides could be on the cards. 

In 6 of the last 9 H2Hs, the result was 1-1, this includes the last 2 meetings. To add to that, 3 of Oxford’s last 5 home draws were 1-1 results. Also, 2 of Portsmouth’s last 5 draws in all competitions were 1-1 outcomes.
