Plymouth Argyle - Portsmouth Betting Preview: Expect goals from the visitors in this lunchtime clash

Pompey travel along the south coast to face the Pilgrims in League Two, with our tipster Hugh Wilson backing the away side to continue their fine goal scoring form
With International fixtures this weekend, the Football League is given a chance to showcase itself, as Plymouth Argyle host Portsmouth in the early kick off on Saturday.

Both sides currently occupy positions in the bottom half of League Two after the first 10 matches, with two points the difference between the teams.

After a sloppy start to the season, Portsmouth have picked up in recent weeks, winning three of their last five matches.

Guy Whittingham’s side recorded a fantastic win in the league last time out, beating an in form Rochdale side 3-0 at home. They followed this with victory away at Oxford United in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy this week. Coral price them at 6/4 (2.50) to take three points on Saturday.

In contrast to their visitors, Plymouth Argyle are in a terrible run of form of late, without a win in their last five matches, losing four of those games.

John Sheridan kept his side up by the skin of their teeth last season, but has failed to build on some handy wins this season against the likes of Cheltenham, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers. Coral price them at 9/5 (2.80) to come out on top. The same firm price the draw at 9/4 (3.25).

A bet that stands out in this match is over 1.5 Portsmouth team goals at a generous 6/4 (2.50) with Coral.

Pompey have been on fire in front of goal on the road this season, scoring over 1.5 goals in six of their last seven away matches in all competitions. When you also consider Plymouth have been poor in defence in recent weeks, this bet is certainly worth taking advantage of.
