Burton have been perennial play-off contenders for a number of seasons in League Two but they have started the 2014/15 season with a bang. Gary Rowett’s side have taken an early lead in the league and next up are the resurgent Portsmouth. Football league guru Ross Casey offers a full betting preview of this live League Two clash…
Burton v Portsmouth (Sun, 12:15, SS1)
Ross Casey’s verdict: Burton to win @ 7/5 – BET NOW
This fixture sees two sides in good form meeting – Burton have won every match at home this season and sit atop the League Two table – whilst Portsmouth have won five of their last seven matches!
Many will be backing the draw in this one as two well matched sides meet, but I think Burton are good enough value at 7/5 to get behind them here. The Brewers have conceded just four goals in their seven matches this season and their home form is nothing short of amazing.
They have won all four home matches this season – which includes notable scalps of Premier League QPR and Championship Wigan. Also, for those who like symmetry when betting – these sides have played just twice previously – with a draw and a Pompey win the results.
Pompey have been in good nick also, they sit in the final play-off spot and have won five of their last seven matches – including an impressive 3-1 away win in their last run-out against Yeovil.
Burton v Portsmouth Team News: Burton Midfielder Robbie Weir is suspended after being sent off in their match against Mansfield last week – he is serving a three-match ban.
Anytime Angle:Stuart Beavon @ 9/4 – BET NOW. Stuart Beavon signed permanently on transfer deadline day after a successful loan spell from Preston and he can repay Gary Rowett’s faith in him here by netting at a best price of 9/4.
League Two Betting: With both sides starting their respective seasons so well these sides are right up there in the outright winner market for League Two. Portsmouth are a best price of 6/1 to win the league and Burton are 15/2.
