Bristol City 3.05 v Bolton 2.5; The Draw 3.5
IT doesn’t matter whether you’re trying to beat the drop, or chasing a play-off place at this stage of the season the key thing to have is momentum. Bolton have it, Bristol City don’t, and that makes The Trotters a decent bet to win this encounter.
It’s three defeats in four, with nine goals conceded, for The Robins and their only win in seven was against hapless Middlesbrough who, let’s face it, the Dog and Duck would beat at the moment.
Sean O’Driscoll’s side are cut adrift at the bottom of the table and are trading at just 1.02 to go down. In other words, they may as well start preparing for League One football now say the Betfair layers.
It’s a completely different story at Bolton where Dougie Freedman’s men have put together a fine run of form – seven wins in nine league games to be precise with just three goals conceded in those wins.
The worry is Bolton’s away form as they’ve won just three on their travels all season. But they’ve never been in as good as form as they are now and being away to a side that concede an average of two goals per game on home soil should allow Freedman’s men to record their fourth away win and move a step closer to reaching the end-of-season play-offs.
Recommended Bet: Back Bolton to win @ 2.5
