Barnet vs Port Vale predictions, betting tips and match preview
Barnet won last time out but they remain bottom of the table and looking like a Non-League side waiting for the axe to fall. Victory over Colchester last weekend was achieved thanks to a single goal from Alex Nicholls just after the hour, the result made all the more surprising as the victors finished the match with one shot on target. That rare positive was only their seventh win of the season, moving their stats to 7-8-20. Another is the pick of traders who have The Bees priced as favourites to double-up, Betfred’s 11/8 one of the better prices available.
A miserable run of form has dragged Port Vale down towards the danger zone and they go into this fixture just one place higher than the bottom-two. There’s a five-point cushion over Chesterfield at present, the latter also winning last time out, meaning Vale were the only side in the bottom-four not to pick-up three points. They did earn a draw with Newport at home a week ago, holding firm for a share thanks to a goalless finish. That result means they remain without a league win in 2018. Is this the match that’ll bring an end to that desperate search? 2/1 (888Sport) says it is.

Barnet vs Port Vale – League Two predictions
Why are these predictions worth betting on?
We’d struggle to make a strong case for either of these sides being good enough to boost their tally by three points. Vale’s recent form is worse than that of their hosts but we’re going to sit on the fence and back a draw in our betting tips at 12/5, best price at Bet Victor. That’s outsider of three in the match prices and we think it’s much bigger than it should be. A share of the spoils would be a better result for Vale, helping them keep the bottom-two at arm’s length.
One goal or less has been the difference in each of the last two meetings of these sides, the pair ending goalless when last at this venue before Vale nicked a narrow 1-0 home win earlier this season. Take the repeat at The Hive Stadium and play 0-0 in your correct score predictions at 8/1 with 888Sport. That’s third favourite, odds compilers expecting us to go close.
