​Carlisle vs Bolton: Top free betting tips

Our Carlisle vs Bolton prediction is for a close game that won’t have too many goals either. Can the Cumbrians resurrect their survival chances? 

The Cumbrians remain in serious trouble and deep into the relegation zone. The morale is not great after losing 3 consecutive league games and lately, the defensive mistakes started to pile up. Bolton are in a much better place right now. The Trotters still chase direct promotion and they come into this game after winning 5 of their last 6 league matches. 

​Team to score first prediction: Bolton to score first

Our first Carlisle vs Bolton prediction backs the visitors to be the team to draw first blood. The Trotters did that in 3 of their last 5 away matches. Now they are up against a Carlisle team that conceded the first goal in all of their last 5 home games. 

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

In only 4 of Carlisle’s last 18 home matches in all competitions, there were more than 2 total goals scored. Also, 9 of Bolton’s last 10 away games had fewer than 3 goals in them. That’s why we think backing under 2.5 goals with our next Carlisle vs Bolton prediction is a smart thing to do. 

​​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

With our final Carlisle vs Bolton prediction as always is our attempt to predict the correct score. We think both teams will play with desperation for different reasons and this could easily see the match ending in a 1-1 draw. 

This is certainly the most frequent result of a draw for both sides. Carlisle saw 4 of their last 5 draws producing 1-1 results. Bolton also registered 1-1 results in 4 of their last 6 matches that ended in draws.

How far will Bolton’s fans travel to Carlisle?

Heading up towards the Lake District is never an easy task. The fact that many of the roads in the region are also susceptible to flooding is also not promising. We don’t think that Bolton’s travelling supporters need to be too worried but if some of them want to bring blow-up boats and paddles so be it. 

The driving distance between Bolton and Carlisle is 113 miles (181km) and it will take close to 2 hours and 10 minutes to make the journey in one direction.

There are still a limited number of tickets available for sale for home fans. They are priced at £20.00 for standing and £23.00 for a seat. These prices are for adults, and the normal discounts for seniors and youngsters are in place.
