Maidenhead vs Portsmouth Predictions

As the old saying goes, you can throw the form book out of the window when looking at the FA Cup, and one team certainly hoping that is the case this weekend is Maidenhead, who come here on the back of five league defeats in a row. That has left them in the relegation zone of the National League and in desperate need of a spark. There is no doubt a home cup win in front of the live television cameras against League One opposition would do that for them. 

Things haven't been good for Maidenhead recently, and there only real bright spot in recent weeks has been their previous round win in this competition. Since then, defeats by scores of 6-0, 7-0 and 2-0 have come their way in what is a very tough time. To cause an upset and shock Portsmouth on Saturday, Maidenhead are priced up at 10/1 with Coral

While the league will be their main focus, fans of Portsmouth would love to see their team go on a cup run. Portsmouth are currently top of League One, which makes them the highest ranked team in the competition at this stage, and they have a three point cushion over Sunderland who are chasing them in second place. They have lost just one game all season, and they come here unbeaten in their last five. A 1-0 win over bottom club Bradford maintained their position at the top of the table and there is a lot to like about how Portsmouth have started the season. 

It will be interesting to see how Portsmouth approach the FA Cup, they won't want to distract from their league campaign, but equally, everyone wants to do well in the FA Cup because of the competition's history. They are big favourites to win here, priced up at 1/3 with Paddy Power

Maidenhead vs Portsmouth Betting Tips

When looking for a potential cup upset you should look for a league team playing poorly against a non-league team playing well. Unfortunately for Maidenhead fans we are looking at the opposite here, their team is in very poor form, while Portsmouth are playing very well at the moment. This points to a comfortable afternoon for Portsmouth, so much so that we are backing them on the -2 handicap line, where they are priced up at 11/4 with Paddy Power

In their last three league games, Maidenhead have not scored a goal and they are coming up against a good League One defence here on Saturday. We think Portsmouth have more than enough to keep Maidenhead quiet, so we are also backing a Portsmouth clean sheet, which is priced up at 1/1 with Betfair

Maidenhead vs Portsmouth Best Odds

Maidenhead - 10/1 with Coral
Portsmouth - 1/3 with Paddy Power
Draw - 9/2 with William Hill
