Home Bolton Wanderers

20/01/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Macron Stadium V Predicted Score:1 - 1

Away Ipswich Town

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Ipswich forward David McGoldrick has netted three times against Bolton in his career and has six goals this season – he is 6/1 to score first.

2 We fancy:

A 1-1 draw, which is 5/1. Wanderers find it hard to score while the Tractor Boys are hardly known for their resolute defending.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 2-2 draw is 16/1. Both these sides give up goals so there is the possibility of a high scoring draw.

Bolton Wanderers vs Ipswich Town Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Bolton have won three and lost two of their last five at home as they look to escape the relegation dogfight

The home side have not had a victory over Ipswich in 10 games, since an FA Cup tie in 2005.

Bolton are 13/8 to win and are unbeaten in their last three home games against Ipswich. Three wins in their last six games saw them rise out of the bottom three. A win here would give them a little bit of breathing space between themselves and the sides in the relegation zone.

Ipswich are 7/4 to take the three points and are coming off the back of a 1-0 home win against Leeds that halted a bad run of no wins in four. Manager Mick McCarthy will want his side to fight for the win here as the points will be vital to keep pace with the hunt for the playoff positions.

The draw is 21/10 and the last three meetings of these sides in this fixture have all ended even. Bolton are struggling in front of goal, hitting the net just twenty-five times while Ipswich have the sixth-worst defence in the division.

Joe Garner is 11/5 to score anytime and the striker has eight goals to his name for the Blue this season.

Predicted Score: Bolton Wanderers 1 - 1 Ipswich Town
