Jermaine To Strike First? 11/1

7 March 2014

The best odds available to you on Sky Bet ahead of this weekend's game.

Can the Robins silence the passionate Pompey faithful this weekend?

This will of course be a first competitive match at Fratton Park between the two clubs and Pompey currently stand as the favourites to take all three points with odds of 6/4. The Robins are valued at 13/8 for the win but a respectable draw currently has odds of 23/10.

The last match between the two sides was here at the Abbey Business Stadium back in September in which a 2-2 draw was played out with the Robins perhaps deserving of all three points. Jermaine McGlashan's brace ensured a point for his side however and a 2-2 draw this weekend would give you odds of 14/1. If you fancy Cheltenham Town to upset the odds however and silence the home crowd then a bet on 2-1 (9/1) is a good call. A draw however would perhaps be the safe bet and a 1-1 draw currently offers odds of 5/1.

Jermaine McGlashan was of course the hero for Cheltenham in the 2-2 draw back in September and another brace for him is worth a big 33/1 but just for Jermaine to score the first goal of the game is a pretty attractive 11/1. Another strong bet would be for Byron Harrison to score first (13/2) with the forward's confidence sky high after his winner last weekend. If you do fancy Pompey top open the scoring however then Jake Jervis at 5/1 would be a good option.

There are some great odds right now on Sky Bet but we have picked out a few more which could represent great value ahead of the game tomorrow:

- Ashley Vincent to score and for the Robins to win? 9/2
- Pompey to be winning at half time but for it to be a draw at full time? 16/1
- Troy Brown to score at any point during the game? 7/1

Our bet of the weekend however is going to be a 3-1 Cheltenham Town win with Matt Richards to score first and that is currently worth 185/1 on Sky Bet.
