Best Tip: Under 2.5 goals

It may be an over exaggeration to say that we expect Shaun Maloney and Darren Moore to got all-out defensive here, but we do not expect a flood of goals as Wigan and Port Vale go head-to-head. The statistics belowimply under 2.5 goals (i.e. 2 goals of fewer in total), and we think it's likely to go that way too. With best odds of 1.75 available on under 2.5 goals and nothing too eyecatching in the full time result market, that's the bet we'd advise you go for.
