Wimbledon v Port Vale Odds: In form Tom Pope heads the first scorer betting

There is live action from League Two on Thursday night as AFC Wimbledon take on Port Vale at Kingsmeadow. That contrast between the two teams' fortunes this season couldn't be more stark as Port Vale top the table as they again look to seal promotion, while Wimbledon are wallowing in 23rd place following a dismal string of performances this season.

There is also an interesting contrast in the two teams' performances in home and away matches this term as Wimbledon have been very poor on home soil, while Vale's away form is tremendous and it is no surprise to see that they start as 10/11 favourites in the match betting with Paddy Power. Wimbledon go into the game as a 14/5 chance, with the draw priced 12/5, but they will need to improve quickly.

Wimbledon have been abysmal at Kingsmeadow this season as they have won two, drawn three and lost eight of their league home games, while their sole win in their last 12 at home came against the only team below them in the league table - basement club Bristol Rovers. They have failed to keep a clean sheet during those 12 matches and that doesn't bode well for the visit of Port Vale.

Over 2.5 goals is 8/11 odds on this week as the league's highest scorers, Port Vale, take on one of the league's worst defences (only Bristol Rovers have conceded more goals than Wimbledon's 48). It has been a tough time for Wimbledon but they can take great heart from their efforts since the turn of the year.

They are unbeaten in their last three matches, winning twice on the road before drawing 2-2 at home to Wycombe recently. The arrival of Paul McCallum on loan from West Ham has coincided with their upturn in fortunes as he has scored four in his last three outings and he is a best price 10/1 to be first goalscorer in the latest betting with PaddyPower.

However, it is that Kingsmeadow form which continues to hold Wimbledon back and drawing at home to Wycombe is a very different proposition to taking on league leaders Port Vale. The visitors have actually been better away from home this season as they have won nine and only lost two away games all season, including four of their last five.

Both teams have scored in their last six on the road and paddypower go 8/13 for both teams to score on Thursday, with Vale's star striker Tom Pope looking to add to his impressive tally. Pope has scored 26 goals this season, including five in his last five, and he is 3/1 favourite to score first. Pope has scored two or more goals in seven matches this term and he is 16/5 to score two or more and 10/1 to score a hat-trick.

The form of Cope has been a key component in Port Vale's rise to the top of the table and they will be looking to build on a run of form that has seen them win four of their last five. That sole defeat came at home to Fleetwood but they can enhance an already impressive away record on Thursday, with paddypower offering 7/1 for the correct score of 2-1 to Port Vale.
