10 October 2014

Vale Favourites To Beat Glovers

Port Vale are 6/5 with Sky Bet to beat Yeovil Town this weekend as Rob Page prepares to take charge of the team for a game at Vale Park for just the second time.


The Valiants host Gary Johnson’s side in League One on Saturday afternoon, kick-off 3pm, having been on the road for their last three fixtures.


Sky Bet are giving odds of 13/5 for both clubs to come away with a point, while Vale striker Tom Pope is 5/1 to build on Tuesday night’s brace at Preston and bag the first goal against the Glovers.


The league’s top two marksmen, Chesterfield’s Eoin Doyle and Bristol City’sAaron Wilbraham, go head-to-head this weekend at Ashton Gate.


The division’s top scorer Doyle notched his 12th goal of the season in the 3-2 defeat of neighbours Sheffield United last weekend and is now four clear of Wilbraham, although being on home soil makes the City man 7/2 favourite to score the opening goal.


The Spireites goal ace is 11/2 to score the first goal of the contest and Sky Bet offer 9/2 that they both add to their tally during the 90 minutes.


Steve Cotterill’s men are odds-on favourites to make it eight wins from 12 games and it is 13/5 that they maintain their unbeaten record with a draw. The visitors, who have lost just once on the road, can be backed at 3/1 for the three points.

Bradford are in Yorkshire derby action at Barnsley in Sunday’s TV game and are 2/1 to make it four wins from six on their travels or 12/5 for a point which would extend their unbeaten record away from Valley Parade to six games.


The Tykes have lost three of their opening four league games at Oakwell but are 13/10 favourites to clinch the three points in front of the Sky Sports cameras.


Sheffield United are 6/5 to bounce back from last week’s defeat with victory over Leyton Orient who despite their lowly league position have three draws and two wins from their five away games and are 9/4 to upset the Blades. The draw is 23/10.


Third-placed Peterborough United, who visit Crawley Town (9/4), are solid favourites at 6/5 to come out on top.


With Peterborough’s top scorer Kyle Vassell sidelined with a broken foot, it is Conor Washington who heads Posh’s betting in the first goalscorer market at 11/2, with Marcus Maddison, who got on to the scoresheet in the 2-2 draw at home to Carlisle last week, a 6/1 chance to net first in the match. Crawley’s Izale McLeod tops the betting at 5/1.


Home advantage for Gillingham (21/10) and Oldham Athletic (23/10) gives them favouritism as they host Scunthorpe (13/5) and Walsall (12/5) respectively, but bottom club Crewe, who have lost nine of their 11 games, are 9/4 chances for the visit of Coventry City (23/20).


Crewe are favourites in the league sponsors’ relegation market, but optimists might consider taking the 200/1 that they secure promotion this season.
