Port Vale vs Northampton: Top Free Betting Tips
Port Vale managed to get back on track after falling out of the promotion zone a while ago. Northampton remain the third-strongest team but their position is at risk if they do not win this game.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Both sides have been having an identical performance over the past few weeks – most of their games had about one goal and went in their favor. This game might prove to be crucial for the final standings this season although it is yet early. With their recent games, we do not expect to see goals in this game and there is even the possibility for a completely goalless game. The previous head-to-head in August ended in a 1:0 win for Northampton. Both sides are among the teams with the lowest numbers of over 2.5 games this season – 12/27 for Port Vale and 10/29 for Northampton.
Match Result – Draw
Both sides had a considerable number of draws this season and currently, they seem to be almost equal in strength and form. We expect to see a very difficult game here and perhaps either 0:0 or 1:1. Port Vale are far from the best home teams in the league and this is mostly because of the four draws they had in 14 games. Northampton are one of the strongest home teams and away, they won 6 out of 14 games. They also had four draws in those fixtures. The last match between them was absolutely squared and it was all good fortune for Northampton to win. As visitors, we think that their maximum will be a draw here.
Alternative Corners – Under 10
The previous game between these teams had 6 corners at full time. We expect a similar difficult game with less corners than the typical match in League Two. Plus, these are two teams that do not take a lot of corners in general. Throughout the season, Port Vale have taken an average of 4.81 corners per match and 4.57 in home games alone. On the other side, Northampton have taken an average of 4.38 per game and just 3.50 in outings. Judging by all recent head-to-head games, this should be an easy under 10 game.
