We round-up the best of the betting odds ahead of Sunday's FA Cup game at Port Vale.
odds on the tie going to a replay currently sitting at 13/5.Sky BetThe bookies have made Port Vale 4/5 favourites to progress on Sunday, with Pools rated a 100/30 shot for victory and the
By and large this season Pools have been quite good away from home, though their form on the road has stuttered in recent week – however, the 12/1 available on a 2-1 win looks good value.
You can also get 12/1 on Craig Hignett’s men winning 1-0, while a 2-0 win boosts your odds to a pretty massive 25/1 if you’re feeling confident.
Padraig Amond is among the favourites to net the first goal at 13/2, while former Vale front man Billy Paynter would love to notch on Sunday – he’s also 13/2 to score first or 9/4 at any time.
One bet that does seem tempting to us is the 8/1 that Sky Bet are offering on Lewis Alessandra to score the opener this weekend – he’s scored four goals in the last nine so could be worth a look.
For longer odds on the first scorer you could take a look at Nicky Deverdics at 12/1 or Josh Laurent at 22/1; Matthew Bates scored against Accrington but is still out at 66/1 to hit the net first on Sunday!
Padraig Amond to score first and Pools to win 3-1: 180/1
