Bolton to Win

While the two teams are in similar form at the moment, Bolton is obviously the better team on paper since they play in a league above Port Vale. In addition to this, Bolton won four of the previous five head-to-head duels against Port Vale, so our prediction is for the same thing to happen in their upcoming duel.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Even though three of the last five duels between Bolton and Port Vale have gone over 2.5 total goals, we expect to see a different type of game now. After all, Bolton has gone under 2.5 total goals in three of their last five games in all competitions, while Port Vale has done the same in four of their last five matches.

Both Teams to Score – No

Once again, the most recent matches between Bolton and Port Vale don't support our prediction since both teams have scored in three of the last five duels between these two teams. That being said, both teams have scored in only two of the previous five matches played by Bolton in all competitions, as well as two of the last five games played by Port Vale across the board.

Bolton vs Port Vale preview: Both teams hoping for a good start to their EFL Trophy campaigns

Both teams are in similar position in their respective leagues, so they are both looking for a good result in this match. With that in mind, let's take a closer look at the teams:

Bolton

After the first five matches in League One, Bolton is sitting in the 13th place with a couple of wins, two draws, and one loss. It's not a bad start for the team that's struggling with financial problems for a while now, but the fans are certainly hoping for more. The team also got out of the first round in the EFL Cup, but they were eliminated in the second round after losing to Wigan on penalties.

Port Vale

The team from Stoke-on-Trent is currently tenth in League Two after the first five rounds, with one win, three draws, and one loss. Port Vale was also eliminated from the EFL Cup after they lost to Sunderland at home. In any case, Port Vale has been inconsistent so far this season and they would appreciate a good result in their upcoming duel with Bolton in the EFL Trophy.
