Bolton vs Stoke – Bolton to make it six draws in eight games
Bolton took four points off the Potters last season and succeeded where Liverpool, Villa and Man City all failed, winning at the Britannia stadium.
Bolton are 6/5 on to beat Stoke at the Reebok and with good reason.
They’ve held Manchester United and Fulham at home so far this season and will expect at least a point against Stoke.
The Potters are 12/5 to win and have suffered two defeats from their first three home games of the season.
They won last time on their travels at St. James Park, but only managed to do that four times last season and will not hold too much hope of doing so at the Reebok.
A draw could be more realistic for Tony Pulis’s men at 11/5.
Surprisingly, for two teams who’ve built their Premier League reputations on being strong defensively and cautious in attack, there have always been goals in games between Bolton and Stoke.
Five went in last season and six the season before, making a bet of 14/1 for the game to end 2-2 seem like a decent shout.
Bolton have drawn five of their seven games so far and have only failed to score once all season.
The Trotters have Johan Elmander, who has four goals this season, and Kevin Davies, whose England debut may inspire him to find the back of the net for the third time this season.
Stoke will be counting on record signing Kenwyne Jones to test Bolton’s defence, he’s got three goals thus far this season.
Backing both teams to score seems logical as that’s what they did in both their meetings last season.
A 2-1 win to Bolton at 7/1 could pay off, but so could the same score for Stoke City, with odds of 10/1.
It’s 14/1 to finish 2-2. See the full Bolton vs Stoke match betting odds market here.
