We have some League Two football betting to look at on Tuesday night as Port Vale host Scunthorpe.

Scunthorpe meanwhile have lost two thirds of their league fixtures in this campaign. They head to Vale Park as underdogs.

Port Vale Preview – Can the Valiants secure the home win?

Port Vale are W6 D1 L4 for the League Two season, holding down a top-ten place currently.

They are the 4/5 odds-on favourites for Tuesday night’s fixture* (odds taken 04:27 GMT Monday, 17th November).

At Vale Park this season the Valiants have taken a W3 D1 L2 record. It’s not been the most consistent of home form.

They lost 3-4 against Tranmere in their last home fixture, missing a chance to win three in a row on home turf.

We just want to look at a stat for football betting on this game.

91% of all league goals that Port Vale have conceded this season have been in the second half of fixtures.

Because we expect them to start strongly, a Port Vale/Port Vale HT/FT betting option is at 15/8* (odds taken 04:27 GMT Monday, 17th November).

The Valiants had secured a three-match winning streak in the league (home and away) before that loss against Tranmere.

Our betting prediction:
Port Vale HT/FT

But this does look to be a game in which they could pick themselves up in and get back to winning ways.

They are undefeated in their last four home games against the Iron, winning one of those.

Three of the last four such fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals which is a 6/5 option to happen on Tuesday* (odds taken 04:27 GMT Monday, 17th November).

Port Vale beat Scunthopre in early September in the EFL Cup. That was their first win against them in three games in all competitions.


Scunthorpe Preview – Cabn the Iron give themselves another lift

There have been big struggles for Scunthorpe this season in League Two. They are only W2 D1 L6 for their efforts.

But they had some relief last time out in action as they picked up three points in a victory over Oldham.

With that victory the Iron snapped a five match losing streak.

Their defence was all over the place in that losing streak as well, conceding a total of twelve goals in those four games.

There have only been six goals scored by Scunthopre in their nine games. They have conceded an average of almost two per game.

Out on their league travels it is a W1 L4 record that Scunthorpe have produced. They failed to score in any of their first three away games.

But they have hit the back of the net in their last two, so again, there is a bit of hope there for them.

It’s worth noting too that Scunthopre’s win over Oldham on the weekend was their first game since October 24th, having had two matches postponed in-between.

Scunthorpe therefore should be a little bit fresher. Will that help them to three points on Tuesday night when they meet the Valiants?

There is an uphill battle here for Scunthorpe who are the 15/4 underdogs in the match outright* (odds taken 04:27 GMT Monday, 17th November).

As part of their poor season on their travels, the Iron have been trailing at the halftime break in four of their five road games.

They need more perhaps than a win against Oldham to prove that they can turn the corner.


Port Vale vs Scunthorpe Betting Advice

We are going with the Port Vale success in this fixture.

We will do so by looking at the Port Vale Halftime/Fulltime option for football betting at 15/8* (odds taken 04:27 GMT Monday, 17th November).

The home form of the Valiants has been a bit sketchy,but they are scoring well enough to see off a struggling side like Scunthopre.

They will get their chances to put the goals on the board and we can see them leading at the halftime break.
