Portsmouth odds: 91/100 (1.91) – 51.0%

Draw odds: 51/20 (3.55) – 27.0%

Bristol Rovers odds: 11/4 (3.75) – 22.0%

Portsmouth are the bookmakers’ expected winners, with a staggering 51.0% win probability ahead of Saturday’s clash. That’s why we have such high faith in our 1-0 to Portsmouth betting tip. Sure, there’s a 21.28% likelihood of us seeing a thrifty 1-0 win for the home team, but we believe those numbers should be significantly higher, as Bristol won’t go down without a fight, meaning a 1-0 win is the most we can expect from Saturday’s game.

Portsmouth vs Bristol Rovers Lineups & Team News

Portsmouth

Coach Mousinho wouldn’t mind if his team maintains the 2022/23 League One momentum. After all, Portsmouth finished in 8th place, with 17 victories, 19 draws, and only 10 games lost across 46 league appearances.

Predicted lineup – Oluwayemi (GK), Rafferty, Bernard, Towler, Ogilvie, Pack, Lane, Lowery, Morrell, Jacobs & Bishop

Bristol Rovers

As we stated earlier in our Portsmouth vs Bristol Rovers prediction, coach Joey Barton’s boys defeated three opponents this summer with a 2-0 score. First, Eastleigh lost on the 8th of July, then it was much-admired Swansea who got beaten 2-0, and a few days before the Portsmouth vs Bristol Rovers game, Chesterfield got thrashed 2-0 at Memorial Stadium.

Predicted lineup – Belshaw (GK), Hoole, Quansah, Gibson, Gordon, Evans, Ward, Finley, Sinclair, Coburn & Collins

Player to Watch: Colby Bishop

With 20 goals to his name in the 2022/23 League One campaign, how could Colby Bishop not receive a shoutout in our Portsmouth vs Bristol Rovers prediction? Surely, coach Mousinho will rely on the 25-year-old to lead Pompey’s attack against Bristol Rovers and their seemingly transformed backline.

The visitors were surely among the worst teams when it came to defending last season, so Colby Bishop will surely have his fair share of goalscoring opportunities at Fratton Park. And he is definitely the kind of player that knows how to exploit the few good chances he has in front of goal.
