Shrewsbury vs Port Vale: Top Free Betting Tips

Shrewsbury failed in their opening game of the tournament and this could be their only remaining chance to stay relevant in this group. Here are our predictions.

Over 2.5 Goals

Shrewsbury and Port Vale have a lot of history from recent years and most of their games actually happened in the EFL Trophy. The teams have been playing against each other in four season over the past five years. All five most recent games between them had over 2.5 goals and we expect the same here. Right now, they are also in the same League in England and they played once last week – the match ended in a 2:1 win for Port Vale.

Both Teams To Score – Yes

Once again, the games between these two teams have been incredible in recent years and goal-packed every single time. Both teams scored in every single game in the last five, most recently last week when Shrewsbury were the visitors. Both sides can score goals and generally have been having goal-packed games in their season to date. We expect this to be a real war and there should be scoring from both sides.

Match Result – Draw

Port Vale won the match in the previous case last week but they were the home team then. Shrewsbury did not have a bad game overall and had their chances. In the EFL Trophy, we expect a different match and a stronger performance from the home team. Port Vale are a much better home team than they are an away team and this will play its role in this match too.

Shrewsbury have been playing in League One for a while and they have never trully been a main contender for the Championship. This season has been no different and the team is the exact epitome of an average team. They have 3 wins, 3 draws, and 3 defeats in the new season and their goal difference is 9:10. They should definitely focus their efforts into this competitions as they have a chance here at least.

They sit exactly next to Shrewsbury in the standings and have identical results and win ratio. The only different thing is the goals as they have 10:12 after 9 rounds.
