Reason For Bristol City vs Bolton Betting Tips

Recent weeks have been kind to Bristol City, as they have put together an 11 game unbeaten run in all competitions. That’s a streak which is expected to continue this week, ahead of Friday night’s visit by Bolton Wanderers. The Trotters are in a much worse position than their opponents, as they sit second-bottom in the Championship. Despite those struggles, they are in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup this week. Can they grab a result away to the Robins this weekend and keep their cup adventure running?

This does feel like a perfect chance for Bristol City to continue a great run. They’ve edged towards the playoffs, but the FA Cup offers another opportunity. The Robins are on a roll, and the success seems like its just going to keep coming for them. Last weekend saw them spoil Martin O’Neill’s homecoming, as they won 1-0 at the City Ground. That victory made it five straight victories for the hosts, but can they pull off a sixth on Friday night?

The bookies are favouring the hosts, with Bolton in serious trouble. They’re three points shy of safety, while Monday night’s defeat against West Brom saw protests from the fans against the owners. Cup magic is exactly what the visitors need, but they have a terrible record behind them. They’ve lost 16 of their 28 matches in the Championship, including eight of 14 away. They breezed through the last round against League One opposition, but this trip is going to be a much harder tie.

Bristol City will be looking to make the most of their great form. On top of that, this is a side which recently enjoyed a cup run. It’s just over a year since their EFL Cup run ended at Manchester City, but the road to the last four was thrilling for the Robins. They come into this clash as heavy favourites to make the last 16, and we’re backing them to live up to their favourites tag and win this one.

One key part of Bristol City’s run of games has been their low scoring nature. They’ve won to nil in four of their last five, while Bolton have an awful scoring record on the road. This season, the Robins have seen under 2.5 goals land in 71% of their home Championship matches, while it’s landed in 64% of Bolton’s league games. A huge 86% of the hosts home league games have seen fewer than four goals, so that makes Bristol City to win and under 3.5 goals a great bet in our book.
