Best Tip of the Day | Low-Scoring Tie at the Start of the New League Cup Season!
Howdy fellow punters. The winnings streak in the Best Tip of the Day section came to an end last week when Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur surprisingly produced a low-scoring contest in the Audi Cup semi-final. It was Harry Kane who made all the difference netting the only goal of the game halfway through the first half at Allianz Arena.
We are hoping to return to winning ways this time around with an Under 2.5 goals FT bet in the English League Cup season opener between Portsmouth and Birmingham City. Both teams have been struggling to make an impact in this competition in the last couple of years.
Pompey failed to reach the second round in any of last three editions, while Birmingham City were also stopped at the very first hurdle last time around when they fell to division rivals Reading.
Kenny Jackett’s men began the new League One campaign in a very slow fashion. They offered a subpar display in a 1-0 defeat at Shrewsbury Town. It saw Pompey make no more than three shots on target, none of which was a serious threat to the Shrews.
Birmingham had just a single attempt on target in their respective tie with Brentford away at Griffin Park in the inaugural round of the new Championship season on Saturday. Nevertheless, it was enough to see them claim all three points in spite of being the inferior side on the pitch throughout 90 minutes of play.
The Blues were meticulous at the opposite end, though, and we believe Portsmouth will have troubles creating opportunities on Tuesday night at Fratton Park. Since the visitors were by no means dangerous in the final third, we find the Under 2.5 goals FT as the safest bet of the day at 7/10 odds. Braver punters can try with the 0-0 correct score at sky-high 8/1 odds.
