Portsmouth vs QPR Betting Tips: Form Guide

Portsmouth Continue To Prove Themselves

Few teams manage to bridge the gap between leagues and come out the favourite but that is exactly what we’re seeing here in the Portsmouth vs QPR match previews. While Portsmouth have been far from perfect, they have been consistent enough to find themselves in the top spot of League One.

Although their dominance has suffered some setbacks as of late, they ended 2018 with a solid 5-2 victory over Fleetwood in a brilliant testament to their skills. They then started the New Year with a brutal and hard-fought 2-1 win over AFC Wimbledon. Their FA Cup dreams also saw a boost with a 1-0 win over Norwich, thanks to a last-minute showstopper from Andre Green. However, the bad times were coming in the form of a 1-0 loss to Blackpool and a shocking 2-1 failure against Oxford United.

Ultimately, Portsmouth do deserve their place at the top of League One but there is an argument to be made that the Portsmouth vs QPR betting tips are jumping the gun on this, based on the weaknesses they have showcased. On the other hand, what better place for Portsmouth to prove to naysayers wrong?

QPR Fails To Exceed Expectations

Queens Park Rangers have pretty much performed as expected. Ever since they were relegated, they have found themselves in the midpoint of the Championship standings and have stayed there. They must be feeling a little bit irked by the Portsmouth vs QPR betting tips for today though. After all, despite all their troubles, they are in quite a different league from their opponents.

However, they do have one thing in common and that’s their bad form coming into this matchup. Despite scoring an absolutely scorching 2-1 winner over Leeds United – which saw Jake Bidwell take home the victory for the team thanks to an astonishing second round header –, they were unable to capitalise on this momentum. They soon fell to both Sheffield United, in a narrow 1-0 loss, and Preston in a 4-1 match, which left little saving graces for observant fans.

Ultimately, QPR have neither exceeded or fallen too below expectations as of late, while Portsmouth have managed to push themselves to the next level even at a lower division. Whether that is enough to bridge the gap remains to be seen.

Portsmouth vs QPR Preview: Recent Meetings

Unfortunately for us, there’s not actually that much to go on when it comes to recent meetings, or indeed any meeting between these two teams. That is despite the fact that they both met close to a century ago back in 1921.

Last facing each other in 2011, Queens Park Rangers beat Portsmouth 2-1 in a League Championship match. Despite occurring in recent memory, it’s hard to argue that even this contest has a lot a lot of value in 2019, except for a very minor psychological advantage for QPR. They also have the overall statistical edge, although it isn’t by much. All things considered, Queens Park Rangers come out on top here, although it might be somewhat inconsequential.

Portsmouth vs QPR Prediction: Hard-Fought Portsmouth Win

This match perfectly exemplifies the magic of the FA Cup. It is giving Portsmouth – a side who have impressed as of late and are chasing promotion to the Championship – a platform to showcase their skills against a team from the division above them. And the bookmakers clearly think they have what it takes to pull off the victory here.

We do think it would be fair to argue that QPR are being underestimated somewhat when it comes to odds. Their win over Leeds United is proof enough that, on the right day, they have what it takes to topple their rivals.

Ultimately though, it is motivation that is going to make a big difference here. And we are expecting to see Portsmouth come into this contest with something to prove. If QPR don’t take their opponents seriously enough, it could be at their own undoing. Due to this, we are going to have to side with the bookmakers on this one. Therefore, our Portsmouth vs QPR prediction is for the home side to take the win in a hard-fought contest.
