iBet: Port Vale are off to a flyer

Port Vale v Oxford, kick off 7.45pm, Sky Sports

Lay under 1.5 goals at 3.6 with Betfair

Oxford were well backed for the League Two title last season but they struggled to put runs of wins together and came up short in ninth, their tally of 59 goals being easily the lowest in the top ten. The money came in again pre-season and they went off as short as 12-1, but after 11 games they find themselves just five points off the bottom and they have been especially weak away from home, losing four of five. Port Vale could be backed at 33-1 for League Two pre-season, but are off to a flyer. But for a ten point reduction last season for going into administration, which saw them finish mid table, they would have finished just three points outside the play-offs. The loss of perennial top scorer Marc Richards to Chesterfield was seen as a huge blow to promotion hopes this time around, but they are scoring goals for fun with 25 in their first 11 games, which makes them the division’s top scorers and they can cement their second place in the table tonight. The Vale have also let in 12, and fans are seeing over three goals a game at home and away. Oxford’s away games average 3.4.


England are a best priced even money to win in Poland tomorrow, with the home side 3-1 and the draw 9/4. Wayne Rooney is 9/2 favourite to notch the first goal.
