Bolton Preview – Trotters find early form

It has been a W2 D2 record by Bolton this season in their League One campaign.

The two wins have both been recorded on home turf.

Those were clean sheet wins taken against Wycombe and Morecambe.

In the match outright, Bolton are the 15/8 underdogs* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT on August 18th 2022 at William Hill).

That’s down to the form that can be taken away from their home successes.

The wins happened against teams who are currently struggling in the bottom five.

This on paper is a much tougher assignment for them on Saturday.

While they have won their last four home matches in League One, this is not as cut and dry as that.

This does look as if it could be a match where goals are at a premium.

Our betting prediction:
Sheff Weds 1 goal winning margin

* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT on August 18th 2022 at William Hill)


Bolton’s last five matches against Sheffield Wednesday have ended under 2.5 goals.

The Trotters have also banked a clean sheet in their last three current league matches (home and away).

Under 1.5 goals is at a quote of 12/5 in football betting odds* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT on August 18th 2022 at William Hill).

Bolton finished last season’s campaign in great form, posting an unbeaten W4 D4 record in their last eight.

They have extended that well into this campaign.

The Trotters are now undefeated in six home League One fixtures.


Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Owls should be competitive

Sheffield Wednesday have posted a W2 D1 L1 record this season.

They had their first upset of the campaign in midweek.

That was a 2-0 road loss out at Peterborough who are currently sitting second in the table.

So they could have a response in them in what is an easier match on paper.

Sheffield Wednesday are 7/5 favourites in the match outright* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT on August 18th 2022 at William Hill).

In their other away match in League One this season, the Owls posted a victory over the MK Dons.

Last term the Owls finished fourth in the league to reach the play-offs.

They couldn’t earn a promotion, but they are expected to be one of the frontrunners to get back into the picture this term.

Under 2.5 goals has cropped up in five of Sheffield Wednesday’s last six fixtures.

Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in their last five against the Trotters.

They earned a 1-1 draw away against them last season.

The Owls should pose a threat on Saturday afternoon.


Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Advice

The Trotters have made a good start to the new season, extending their unbeaten league form well.

But this is easily their sternest test of the new campaign, however, and they could be found out.

The first pick for football betting tips is ignoring the match outcome and going under 1.5 goals at 12/5* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT on August 18th 2022 at William Hill).


Key Facts – Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tip

  • Bolton are on a four-match winning streak at home in League One
  • Bolton have taken a clean sheet in each of their last three league games
  • Sheffield Wednesday are unbeaten in five against the Trotters

The away win just gets the nod at 7/5* (odds recorded 21:35 GMT on August 18th 2022 at William Hill)
