Free tips League One Tips: Oldham v Bolton (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Promotion hopefuls Bolton Wanderers face a tough trip against a rejuvenated Oldham Athletic looking to beat the drop.

We run you through our betting tips and predictions for League One’s sole Saturday showing.


Oldham v Bolton Prediction

Bolton to win at 11/10 with William Hill


Oldham v Bolton Best Bet

Bolton to win and under 2.5 goals at 3/1 with Bet365


Oldham v Bolton Past Meetings

These two sides have only met twice since the turn of the Millennium, Wanderers winning both of those. They won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in October thanks to two goals from Zack Clough.


Oldham v Bolton Stats

Oldham have won seven home league matches from a possible 21 this season, while over 2.5 goals has happened in 19% of those.

Bolton have won 11 of 21 away league games, while over 2.5 goals has happened in 33% of those.


Oldham Team News

Brighton loanee Rob Hunt is definitely out, having undergone surgery on a groin problem at his parent club. Full-back Cameron Dummigan is expected to miss out again after suffering a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury.


Bolton Team News

Phil Parkinson is sweating on the fitness of target man Gary Madine, after the striker sat out last weekend’s loss. Full-back Andrew Taylor could be back in contention.


Reason for Oldham v Bolton Bets

There’s a little more room for optimism at Boundary Park, as Oldham Athletic look to be hitting decent form at just the right time. The relegation candidates are sitting three points above the relegation zone, albeit Port Vale have a game in hand.

Nevertheless, the Latics have lost just twice in their last 12 games. In that period, they’ve held out for impressive draws against promotion chasers Sheffield United and Millwall. Last week, they beat third-placed Fleetwood Town 2-0 at home. It’s been at Boundary Park where they’ve really looked up for a fight. They’re unbeaten in their last seven games there, losing just once since the turn of the year.

Just 20 miles across the M60, Bolton Wanderers are looking to achieve their own ambitions. They’re edging ever nearer to promotion, despite losing last weekend to Scunthorpe United. They sit in second place, nine points below league leaders Sheffield United but seven points ahead of Fleetwood in third. They possess the second-best away record in League One – they’ve won five of their last six matches on their travels, scoring 15 in the process.

Whilst Oldham boast an impressive recent home record, Bolton should possess the quality to inflict their first home loss since late January. Back a Wanderers win at 11/10 with William Hill, as they look to seal promotion as soon as possible. Depending on Friday’s results, victory could indeed see them promoted on Saturday.

Oldham have conceded just 42 goals so far this season, constituting the fourth best defensive record in the league. Don’t expect this to be a high scoring affair. Back under 2.5 goals at 4/7 with Bet365 or go one better and get a Bolton win and under 2.5 goals at 3/1 with Bet365.
