Bolton Preview – Can The Trotters extend form?

It has been nothing but positives for Bolton in League Two recently after a hot run of form.

They have played their way into the playoff places now after a fantastic W7 D2 run in their last nine.

In that sequence of games, Bolton picked up six clean sheets as well.

On the weekend they settled for a 1-1 draw at Bradford but will be aiming to make it four straight home wins on Tuesday.

Bolton hold a W7 D4 L6 home record this season and each of those victories happened with a clean sheet.

Bolton to win to nil is at a quote of 5/2 in football betting for those thinking that they continue the streak* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

The Trotters are averaging a goal per game on home soil this season, but they have done well in defence at an average of 1 goal per game against.

The one concern for them will perhaps be their home form from matches against the current top six.

From four such games played this season, Bolton are only D2 L2.

But their current streak of form just cannot be dismissed at all.

In the match outright for League Two betting, the win for Bolton is at 11/10* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

They would move to within 4-points of second-place Cambridge with a victory in this one.

Our betting prediction:
Bolton to win to nil

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021)


Bolton have taken a clean sheet in 47% of their home games this season, so they have been very reliable in defence.

It’s been three straight home games for them without a single goal against, and each of their last seven home games have gone under 2.5 goals.

Under 2.5 goals as a betting option on this game is at 11/10* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

Bolton are undefeated in their last three home games against Cambridge, the last three having been drawn.

There was a 1-1 draw between Bolton and Cambridge earlier this season.


Cambridge Preview – Can the U’s get a good away win?

Cambridge are W4 D1 L3 in their last eight league games, so they have been a little hit and miss.

They have taken a W8 D2 L6 record on the road this camping and it has been back-to-back road successes.

Those were clean-sheet victories at Port Vale and Mansfield.

Just to further strengthen the chance of a low-scoring game, six of Cambridge’s last eight league fixtures have gone under the line.

In the match tonight for football betting, the win for Cambridge is at 12/5* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

That’s a big underdog for the second-placed team in the league.

They are facing a red-hot Bolton of course, but there is potentially another big factor in play in this one as well.

7 of Cambridge’s 8 away wins in league two this season have been against teams who are 17th or lower in the standings at the moment.

So, they have struggled on their travels against some of the stronger teams in the league.

So their away form is a little distorted.

Cambridge are W5 D1 L1 in their last seven away games, which is a fantastic record and each of their last three away wins have been with a clean sheet.

But it’s been against teams firmly rooted down in the bottom third of the table.

So, can they perform against a stronger opponent in Bolton on Tuesday night?

We firmly think that it is worth looking a the NO option in Both Teams To Score at 5/6* (odds recorded 2200 GMT, March 7th, 2021).

Both teams have scored in just one of Cambridge’s last eight league games.

They certainly have their merits do Cambridge.

They have the third best away record in the league, the second-best offense and the third-best defence.

But still, they look a little vulnerable in midweek.
