Bolton vs Tranmere Prediction
With both teams in the relegation zone, it seems as both teams have a chance in winning the game. However, Bolton will be the best one to put the wagers upon in the match. Without their 12 points reduction in the contest, the host would have had a better run in the league.
Bolton has been winless in their past seven fixtures overall. Also, they have marked only one win in their last ten fixtures. Even so, their previous encounter against Bristol Rovers at home ended in a 1-1 draw with the host coming from behind in the clash.
Besides, the host has stayed unbeaten in three of the last five home matches. So, Keith Hill will be confident with his boys when playing with home ground advantage. In the meantime, Tranmere is winless in their prior five away fixtures in the major contests.
Tranmere faced Ipswich in their previous encounter at home. Even though Tranmere drew the first blood early in the game, they lost the lead in the second half after conceding two goals. Even in FA Cup, they faced Manchester United with a massive 0-6 defeat lately.
The Rovers are winless in their last nine overall attempts across all major contests. In the league, Tranmere has recorded only two wins on the road in 12 appearances away from home. Meanwhile, Bolton has lost only four of their 14 home matches so far in the campaign.
As such, Bolton is likely the best contender for the favorite to win in the clash. So, the punters can go with a probability of Bolton creating more chances in the game. To be safer, it is better to go with a double chance in the match favoring the host.
