Home Sheffield Wednesday

10/03/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Hillsborough V Predicted Score:1 - 1

Away Bolton Wanderers

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Bolton to score under 0.5 goals at 6/4. The Trotters have scored just one goal in their last five away matches, so this looks a good price to be repeated.

2 We fancy:

The draw at 49/20. Neither side look to be in the form that would suggest either can take three points from the game and a point apiece could well be a decent result for both in the circumstances they are in.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Bolton to win and both teams to score at 15/2. Wednesday have lost three of their last four league games with both teams scoring and they do concede plenty of goals. Bolton have a chance.

Sheffield Wednesday's Last Six:

Won: 0 Drawn: 1 Lost: 5

Jos Luhukay has a fully fit squad to choose from but could well make changes to try and seek a first win in six.

Bolton Wanderers' Last Six:

Won: 1 Drawn: 2 Lost: 3

Bolton’s only player out through injury at the moment is Stephen Darby, who is still suffering from a head knock.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Bolton Wanderers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Sheffield Wednesday host Bolton at Hillsborough in the Championship on Saturday, with both teams struggling for wins of late

Both Sheffield Wednesday and Bolton are still involved in the relegation battle down at the bottom of the Championship, and both are looking for a rare win. Wednesday have lost their last four league games and were dumped out of the FA Cup by Swansea City. They have just one win so far in 2018. As for Bolton, they are now five points clear of the drop zone and look to have given themselves a good chance of staying up following their disappointing start to the campaign.

Sheffield Wednesday seem to be in free-fall since Carlos Carvajal left the club in January. They sit seven points clear of the bottom three but in this kind of form, they could find themselves sucked into the relegation places. This game represents a golden chance to end their awful run in the league, against a Bolton side who have won just one of their last five league games.

Bolton picked up a decent point away to Reading in midweek thanks to an Adam Le Fondre equaliser. They have actually lost just once in the last four games, including two draws at Reading and Norwich City. They have drawn their past two away games and will also feel like this is a game they can pick up a positive result from and continue to pull away from the drop zone.

Looking at the betting for this game, Sheffield Wednesday at a little over even money in the result market looks tempting at 21/20. Wednesday are capable of more than they have shown so far this season and this will be a game they should be winning.

Neither side are particularly prolific going forward, Wednesday have scored 38 goals in their 36 matches and Bolton have scored just 31 in their 36. The Trotters are still trying to move away from the bottom and a point here would be a good result for them, so it should be quite a tight game. Under 2.5 goals at 8/11 looks reasonably good value given neither side are particularly strong going forward.

Wednesday’s home form would suggest Bolton have a decent shot here of a win and at 16/5 they could well be worth some backing. But, coupling their poor away form with the Owls’ poor home form, the draw at 49/20 could be the best bet in this game. Wednesday have one of the highest drawn matches records in the league, and Bolton could play for a point here so that price looks promising.

Predicted Score: Sheffield Wednesday 1 - 1 Bolton Wanderers
