Betting tips Bolton Wanderers vs. Sheffield Wednesday

Bolton to bolt the door

Sheffield Wednesday travel to Bolton looking to make it ten unbeaten but will they have enough to break down the determined Trotters?

Crunch time

Bolton are getting towards the last chance saloon if they want are to stand any chance of Championship survival but face a tough opponent in Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls have gone nine games unbeaten in the league and although that sounds impressive they have drawn five of them. Steve Bruce’s side are harder to beat yet they lack a cutting edge going forward. During their unbeaten run they have failed to score three times and scored just a single goal in another three.

The sense from Hillsbrough is Wednesday are already planning for next season.

Bolton, on the other hand, are desperate for points. Their win against Millwall was their first in four games and leaves them still five points adrift of the Lions who occupy 21st spot in the table.

Looking at the run the visitors are on, it is hard to see the Trotters making it back-to-back wins for the first time since late August but they do have a decent record against the Yorkshire outfit.

The omens are good

Steve Bruce is not a man that likes his visits to Bolton. He has lost his last three league visits to the University of Bolton Stadium, in fact, his last win at this ground was back in 2011 when in charge of Sunderland.

Phil Parkinson also has his own impressive run going against the Owls.

The Bolton boss has never lost on home soil to Sheffield Wednesday in his managerial career in all competitions.

In his seven home meeting with them he has won five and drawn two. If you are the superstitious type then these omens are looking very much in the home sides favour but then again this is Bolton we are talking about.

Trotters toiling

As mentioned before, Bolton have not won back-to-back games since the end of August and there is no reason to think they can start doing it now especially against a Wednesday side that are difficult to beat.

Wanderers have only scored 24 times all season, by far the lowest in the Championship, so again it is hard to see them taking maximum points yet Phil Parkinson is not a man to throw in the towel and you can almost guarantee Bolton will give it everything in this one.

Betting tip

With the home side fighting for their lives and a number of Wednesday players still hoping to impress Steve Bruce before the summer you can expect neither side to give much ground.

All things considered going for a draw in this one at odds of 11/5 is well worth a punt and packs a punch too.
