Bolton Wanderers Preview – Will the Trotters’ unbeaten run continue?

Ian Evatt did an outstanding job at Bolton Wanderers last season, and the 39-year-old has made an excellent start to this campaign. Evatt’s Trotters are unbeaten in four league and cup matches so far. In the first round of the EFL Cup, Bolton beat EFL Championship side Barnsley on penalties.

Bolton were involved in back-to-back thrilling 3-3 draws in their opening two League One matches. They drew 3-3 at home with MK Dons before drawing by the same scoreline at Wimbledon a week later. They picked up their first league win last Tuesday, as Antoni Sarcevic scored in a superb 1-0 victory at Lincoln City.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1404 GMT, Friday 20 August)

Bolton have made an excellent start, and Wanderers will be desperate to keep their undefeated run going. The home win on Saturday is available at 13/8, while the draw is priced at 5/2.

Oxford United Preview – Will the Yellows leave Bolton with maximum points?

After sneaking into the play-offs last term, Karl Robinson’s Oxford United missed out in the semi-finals to eventual winners Blackpool. However, it was another hugely successful season for the Oxfordshire outfit. A top-six finish will be the aim once again.

The Yellows have made an excellent start to this League One campaign, winning two and drawing one of their opening three fixtures. After a 1-1 draw at Cambridge United on the opening weekend, Oxford secured home wins over Charlton Athletic and Crewe Alexandra in the last week.

Bolton Wanderers vs Oxford United Betting Advice

These two teams last met in the curtailed 2019-20 season. Due to the circumstances, the pair played just once that year, with the game at the University of Bolton Stadium ending in a pretty forgettable 0-0 draw. The matchup before that in March 2017 ended in a 4-2 away win for the Trotters.


Key Facts – Bolton Wanderers vs Oxford United Betting Tip

  • Three of the last five Bolton vs Oxford meetings have ended in draws
  • Both teams are unbeaten after three league games
  • Bolton are the top scorers in League One right now


When Bolton are around, you usually see goals. Their tally of seven in three games is the best in League One at present. We fancy Evatt’s boys to get on the scoresheet once again, but Oxford should get the points. With that in mind, back the away win and both teams to score at 4/1.

James Henry opened his season account from the penalty spot in Oxford’s 1-0 midweek win over Crewe. If you fancy the 32-year-old to follow that up with another goal this weekend, check out the decent price of 3/1.
