Best Tip: Portsmouth to win

It looks like we could well have a dominant side in this game, and it's Portsmouth. Their latest form statistics show what they've got in their locker on home turf, and historical head-to-head (H2H) data proves they know how to beat Cambridge too. The odds point towards John Mousinho's side winning in the win / draw / win market, and that's our strong prediction for Tuesday evening too.
