Colchester vs Port Vale: Top Free Betting Tips
This match is the perfect opportunity for Port Vale to strike an easy win after a long series of draws that has kept them below the promotion zone.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
We have some serious stats in support of this bet and we think that it is the perfect opportunity. For instance, Colchester had more than 2.5 goals and both teams scoring in five of their last six games. On the other side, while Port Vale had less than 2.5 goals in their last five games in a row, they had both teams scoring in 5/7 recent games. It is simply that the visitors have been having a bunch of draws lately and they fail to score enough goals to win. We think that we might see a BTTS here even though there is an obvious difference in level between these two teams.
Draw No Bet – Port Vale
We believe that Port Vale will take the opportunity for three easy points and win against Colchester but due to the recent accumulation of draws, we would rather go for the draw no bet option instead of the FT market. Port Vale have always played strong against Colchester and they haven't lost against them in five consecutive games. Moreover, they scored first in the last five fixtures which is also an alternative option for you because Colchester conceded first in 5/6 recent games this season. We think that Port Vale are the much better team and they should be motivated to get back to the promotion zone.
Alternative Corners – Over 9
Neither side here is among those that have taken the most corners this season but their recent results have been quite different and we expect to see a good number of corners here. For instance, Colchester have taken an average of 6.00 corners in their last five home games while Port Vale took 5.40 in their last five away games. It is true that both teams had a bunch of games with few corners but we expect to see 10 here.
