Bolton Wanderers vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Macron Stadium (Bolton).
Bolton and Wolverhampton come into Saturday’s tie in completely opposite moods. The hosts are desperate for salvation points after the run of four losses and a draw in last five rounds brought them just two points away of the relegation zone. The visitors, on the other side, travel to Macron Stadium in a festive mood, having booked the promotion to the elite class after a win over Birmingham City last time out.
The Wolves thus only continued the amazing form which saw them win six and draw one of last seven league matches. The team led by Nuno Espirito Santo kept three straight clean sheets along the way and they should be massive favourites to see off the struggling Trotters here.
Nonetheless, the lack of motivation might play a big role which is why we won’t go for the away win with high stakes here as we would have in normal circumstances.
Bolton Wanderers vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Head-to-head

Each of last four H2H games between these rivals saw both teams on the scoreline.
Bolton were much more successful in matches at Macron Stadium, winning 20 and losing 10 of 41 so far.
Wolves destroyed the Trotters 5-1 when the teams met in this term of the Championship at Molineux.
Bolton Wanderers vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Prediction
Bolton did not score a single goal in three straight before holding Barnsley to a 2-2 draw in last weekend’s relegation six-pointer at Oakwell Stadium. Knowing they are now up against the league’s strongest defensive line, we have to go with Wolverhampton Wanderers to keep a clean sheet at 2.50.
We don’t expect it to be a high-scoring contest similar to the ones in the most recent H2H history between these two sides. The hosts will likely sit at the back and wait for their chances from counter attacks against the favourites, It is interesting to note that seven of last eight games Bolton played at Macron Stadium ended with less than three goals cored. You can get the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at 1.70 here.
