Portsmouth eyeing promotion

Neither of these sides are in startling form. When that's the case it makes sense to look at the quality of the players on show and make your prediction based on that. Portsmouth are far better than MK Dons. Pompey have taken just one point from their last two but MK Dons are having it even worse; they've managed just the solitary point from three matches. When you throw in the fact that Portsmouth are chasing a top six finish whilst MK Dons are settled in mid-table then you can bet the better players and greater motivation will see a positive result.

A win and a clean sheet to boot?

We've wasted no time in making the prediction that Portsmouth will win the match. We also think they'll swot MK Dons away without too much hassle in the form of them recording a clean sheet alongside their victory. Why is this? Well, Portsmouth have managed to produce two shutouts in their last three matches whilst the home side have looked rather toothless of late; They've only scored three goals in their previous five and have blanked in each of the last three matches.

A comfortable but modest victory without loads of goals

Our tips to this point have made it clear that we fully expect to see Danny Cowley's men get back to winning ways here. We don't think it will be a battering though hence the prediction it will be under 2.5 goals. Three of the last five games at Stadium MK have ended under the 2.5 level whilst Portsmouth's matches on the road offer a similar pattern in the past five with only two games seeing three goals or over. Their last two away games have both fell below 2.5 as well.

Pompey for the playoffs?

Portsmouth were looking like the team to build momentum ahead of the playoffs a couple of games back. That has stopped. There is still time for them to pull it back though and a match against a team with nothing to play for is a great place to start. Portsmouth will be probing a lot; it should make for an entertaining affair.
