Bolton Preview – Trotters favourites for three points

Bolton have made an undefeated start to the new League One season.

It’s been a return of W1 D2 by them so far.

In their one home fixture, they claimed a big 3-0 win over Wycombe.

That gives the Trotters big claims back on home turf on Tuesday night.

In the match outright Bolton are 11/20 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 22:01 GMT on August 15th 2022 at Betfair).

Another positive for Bolton heading into Tuesday’s game is that it has been back-to-back clean sheets for them this season.

In total, it has been just one goal conceded in their three matches this term.

Bolton landed a top-ten finish in last season’s campaign, unable to make a run at the playoffs.

Our betting prediction:
Bolton to win to nil

* (odds recorded 22:01 GMT on August 15th 2022 at Betfair)


Bolton produced a fantastic home record last season in League One.

They went W12 D7 L4 and they have lost just one of their last thirteen league home matches.

Bolton’s last two home fixtures against Morecambe have both ended in 1-1 draws.

But the Trotters look as if they may hold an edge on Tuesday.

Bolton to win to nil is a quote of 13/8 for football betting tips* (odds recorded 22:01 GMT on August 15th 2022 at Betfair).


Morecambe Preview – Shrimps in for a tough night?

Morecambe are still looking for their first win of the new League One season.

So far it has been a D2 L1 record by them.

The one defeat in that sequence came on the road in their only away fixture so far.

In it, Morecambe suffered a big 3-0 loss against Peterborough.

On the weekend they churned out a home point against Fleetwood in a 1-1 draw.

That’s the only goal that they have managed this season.

In the match outright for football betting, the win for Morecambe is at a quote of 5/1* (odds recorded 22:01 GMT on August 15th 2022 at Betfair).

Two of those away wins came against teams that finished in the bottom five beneath them.

With five losses in their last six league away games, the away win on Tuesday looks slim.
