Port Vale vs Salford Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips (18/01/2022)

Port Vale meet Salford in a postponed fixture from December. This match is crucial for both sides that have ambitions for promotion at the end of the season.

Port Vale vs Salford: Top Free Betting Tips

Port Vale surprisingly had a terrible start of the year. The team that was once at the top has now fallen below the promotion zone and needs a serious improvement after conceding 7 goals in the first two games of 2022. Salford, on the other hand, have been improving and are dangerously close to Port Vale. An away win here will put the teams next to each other in the standings.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

Port Vale are one of the teams that had the most problems with Covid-19 in recent months. In fact, the team did not play for almost a month between 11.12.2021 and January 8 this year. And they still have serious issues to deal with at the moment. While their most recent games all had a lot of goals, we do not expect to see this against one of the teams that has had the fewest goals in the league – Salford.

Double Chance – Draw or Salford

As mentioned above, Port Vale have not recovered from their problems just yet and it was visible in their most recent games. They got absolutely obliterated in the last match against Swindon and it was a home game. Salford are far from the most impressive teams in the league and they are far from good away from home but we do not expect them to lose here. This match, overall, is hard to predict but we would rather go for the safer double chance option here instead of a clean draw or win for Salford.

Team Total Goals – Port Vale Under 1.5 Goals

Once again, we bet against Port Vale and this time, it is for them to score no more than 1 goal. Salford are far from the best defensive teams but Port Vale's current situation makes us believe that they will have difficulties even against a mediocre team like the visitors. Back in the earlier stages of the season, they were the strongest home team in the league and were scoring 2-3 goals almost every week but now, we do not expect them to score more than once.
