SKY BET: Weekend preview

6 September 2013

Bet with us and help the club!

Goals expected at Brunton Park this weekend!

After a rocky start to the season, Carlisle picked up their second point with a battling draw at Brentford last Saturday. Now there's an opportunity for all three points as they host Port Vale, who have lost both their away games this season.

The Cumbrians lost only three of their 11 home games last season when hosting bottom-half teams like Port Vale. Furthermore, they’ve lost only two of their last 14 home games against promoted teams – winning seven times. They're 7/4 to make it eight this weekend, with the Draw No Bet available at 10/11.

This should be a fixture with goals, because not only have the Cumbrians had over 2.5 goals in 14 of their last 20 home games, but bottom-half promoted teams like Port Vale have had 57% over 2.5 goals when on their travels since 2008/09. 10 of those 20 Carlisle home games have had at least four goals and over 3.5 goals can be backed at 9/4 with Sky Bet. 

Other reasons to bet:

• 14 of the last 20 Carlisle home games have been over 2.5 goals
• The Cumbrians have drawn the first half in their last five home games against promoted teams like Port Vale 
• In six of Carlisle's last seven home wins they've led at half-time and at full-time
