Portsmouth VS Southend United Preview England League 1

Portsmouth VS Southend United Livescore Odds England League 1
England League 1--Match Time:11/18/2017 23:00 Saturday GMT+8

Portsmouth’s minor blip appears to be over; Kenny Jackett’s men ended a run of four straight defeats when beating Charlton in the EFL Trophy, before following up with a pleasing away victory at Blackpool in the league last Saturday. Pompey are now just three points off the play-offs, a win in this fixture would put them in a very good position indeed. Similarly, Southend, who started the season poorly, have also come to the boil of late. Phil Brown’s men are unbeaten in three League One matches, and they too are just three points outside the top six.
With these two both looking good from an offensive point of view in their respective home and away matches this season, the bet that stands out here is ‘Both Teams to Score’.
On their own patch, Portsmouth have generally been good value for goals this season. Kenny Jackett’s men have scored 13 of their 22 goals at Fratton Park, and they’ve failed to score in front of a home crowd just twice, though, they’ve only drawn a blank in just one of their last six on home soil. With the creative Matty Kennedy and regular scorer Brett Pitman in their ranks, Pompey should be up to finding the net against a Southend side who’ve conceded plenty on the road.
Southend have also offered plenty offensively this season; even when Phil Brown’s men weren’t scoring goals, they were creating numerous chances, such is the attacking nature of their game. The visitors come into this match having notched in each of their last four League One matches, while the only times that they’ve misfired on the road in recent times was against Wigan and Shrewsbury – the top two in the division. Southend have the players, and the attacking philosophy to both create and score goals against most teams in this division, and they’re very much fancied to cause Portsmouth a few problems on Saturday.
Aside from both teams looking likely to notch in this fixture, it’s hard to avoid thinking that the visitors might just be a tad overpriced. Phil Brown’s side is not short of firepower, while they should enjoy playing on the counter should Portsmouth decide to get forward. At a big price, ‘Southend to Win & BTTS’ is also worth a dabble.
