Away Fulham

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A late goal. You have to go back seven games to the last time a goal was not scored between 75-90 minutes between these two.

For there to be exactly two second half goals is 13/5 and with a predicted four goals in the game, 13/5 for half of them to be in the second 45 minutes is a smart way to go.

2 We fancy:

Fulham to win with a -1 handicap is at 9/4 and that is the best way to get value from the away win.

The Cottagers have scored a whopping 24 more goals this season and despite being the away side, have managed eight goals more on the road than Bolton have managed at home (Fulham 26 to Wanderers 18).

3 It's a long shot, but…

Bolton come into the game with confidence and for them to cause a shock and win the game 3-1 is 28/1.

It is a long shot, but they have managed it twice in the last ten games against Fulham at home.

Bolton Wanderers' Last Six:

Bolton’s last six: Won: 3 Drawn: 1 Lost: 2

Midfielder Josh Vela’s long-term ankle injury is showing no signs of improving but West Ham defender Reece Burke has returned on loan for the rest of the season and may be on the bench.

After impressively beating Bristol City at the weekend, Trotters boss Phil Parkinson is likely to name an unnamed starting eleven.

Fulham's Last Six:

Fulham’s last six: Won: 6 Drawn: 0 Lost: 0

The signing of Newcastle forward Aleksandar Mitrovic on loan has only strengthened head coach Slaviša Jokanović’s attacking options.

With a fully fit squad to choose from barring the injury to 20-year-old winger Sheyi Ojo, Jokanovic has little reasons to switch things up from the side that beat Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Bolton Wanderers vs Fulham Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Bolton have pulled themselves out of danger but face a stern test from in-form Fulham

Bolton hauled themselves out of the relegation zone at the weekend after a superb win against playoff chasing Bristol City. The Trotters looked down and out just six weeks ago but three wins in their last six Championship games has breathed new life into Phil Parkinson’s men. Fulham have been equally impressive and in the last ten league games have picked up a whopping 25 points out of a possible 30. Two teams boasting good strong form will make for an action-packed afternoon at the Macron.

Bolton are 3/1 to win the match and it is only because they are facing the seemingly unstoppable Fulham Juggernaut that they are that long.  Based on current form, it actually looks a decent price and as they are unbeaten on home soil since the 16th of December, it could be worth a look.

Fulham are 10/11 to win and that is no surprise given their current run. Eight wins in their last ten league games has seen the Cottagers go from nowhere to fifth in the table and likely candidates to steal the second automatic promotion place. Fulham have also scored more away goals than anyone else this season (26) and that reason alone makes this price very backable.

The draw is 5/2 and for two teams playing well it would be no surprise to see them cancel each other out in a stalemate. Also, adding to this is the fact that two of the last three meetings between the two have resulted in a share of the spoils.

Over 2.5 goals in the game is 4/5 and where Fulham are concerned, that is a no brainer. Only once in the last seven league games have Fulham failed to score less than two goals in a game and Bolton have found the back of the net at least once at home in their last five games in all competitions.

Fulham to win and both teams to score is 11/4 and that could prove to be the best bet of the week. We have highlighted the reasons for plenty of goals above, but you have to go back to 2017 for the last time the Cottagers failed to pick up maximum points in the league and they look set to add another three points this weekend.

Predicted Score: Bolton Wanderers 1 - 3 Fulham
