Bolton vs Blackburn – Blackburn unbeaten in seven against Bolton
Sam Allardyce enjoys pitting his sides against his former clubs and Blackburn could leapfrog Bolton with a win at the Reebok Stadium on Sunday.
Blackburn have only won two of their eight away games in the Premier League this season, but both came against sides Sam Allardyce had previously managed.
Bolton have lost three of their last four home games with Blackburn and Owen Coyle’s side may have to wait a little longer to register their first win over their former boss – Blackburn offer plenty of value at 5/2 to win.
But Bolton’s home form this season has been excellent with just the one loss from eight games and 17 goals scored in that time, and considering they’ve only lost three of their last 17 Premier League games, the draw is well priced at 23/10.
Despite Bolton’s fine form this season, on just two of the 18 occasions when the two sides have met in the Premier League the home side has emerged victorious, and the scene looks set for another away win.
A 1-0 Blackburn win looks the bet of the day considering five of Bolton’s last six defeats have come by that scoreline and it is priced at a generous 8/1.
Howver Blackburn have shipped 11 goals in their last two Premier League games, and with Johan Elmander in such fine form, Bolton should be good for a goal.
Elmander is 5/1 to score first or 6/4 to score any time, but for Elmander to score first and Blackburn to come back and win 2-1 is priced at a huge 75/1.
Considering Blackburn’s last four away goals in the Premier League have come in the 80th minute or later, Blackburn look well priced at 12/1 to come from behind and win.
