​Port Vale vs Blackpool: Top free betting tips

Our Port Vale vs Blackpool prediction is for a narrow home win. Will Blackpool’s struggles on the road continue? 

Both Port Vale and Blackpool lost on Boxing Day, so both teams will be eager to bounce back strong now. The Valiants remain in the bottom half of the table and their form remains largely unpredictable as they keep blowing hot and cold. Blackpool remain in the top 8, but this is largely due to their solid home form. On the road, the Seasiders lost 3 of their last 4 league games. 

​Total goal prediction: Odd

Our first Port Vale vs Blackpool prediction is for an odd number of total goals. Amazingly, all of Port Vale’s 10 home league games this season produced an odd amount of goals. 

Blackpool are also no strangers to odd numbers for goals with 3 of the last 4 away games for the Seasiders finishing with an odd amount of goals. 

Correct outcome prediction: Port Vale to win

Blackpool come into this match on the back of 3 defeats in their last 4 away matches. At the same time, the Valiants found some home form lately and they won 2 of their last 3 home league matches. 

​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Port Vale

With our final Port Vale vs Blackpool prediction, we back the hosts to achieve a narrow 1-0 win. The Valiant have 4 home league wins this season, 3 of those had been 1-0 victories. 

Also, Blackpool lost 2 of their last 4 away matches with that same 0-1 scoreline.

How far will Blackpool’s fans travel to Port Vale?

The visiting fans will have to leave the comfort of the sea and the coastline for this journey deep into the industrial heartland of England. The landscape won’t be exactly enjoyable as the away fans cover the miles through the many factory towns and cities on the way. 

The driving distance between Blackpool and Stoke-on-Trent is only 83 miles (134km). The road network is not great though and this is why it could take up to 2 hours to cover that short distance.
