​Blackpool vs Bolton: Top free betting tips

Our Blackpool vs Bolton prediction is for a tight game. Will the trend of regular draws between these sides from recent years continue? 

Blackpool remain in the hunt for the play-offs but they lack consistency. Still, their main issues are on the road and at home the Seasiders had been solid (W10 D4 L3). Bolton sit outside the top 2 only on goal difference and their push towards direct promotion is going pretty well right now. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our first Blackpool vs Bolton prediction backs both sides to find the back of the net in this game. All of Bolton’s last 5 matches saw this outcome. Also, 4 of Blackpool’s most recent 6 games had BTTS outcomes in them. 

Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Our next Blackpool vs Bolton prediction is for yet another draw between these two teams. In 5 of the last 6 H2Hs played in Blackpool, the spoils were shared. Also, the Trotters registered 3 draws just in their last 5 league matches. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

Our final Blackpool vs Bolton prediction takes into account the first two free betting tips we gave you and with that in mind, we pick 1-1 as the most likely outcome of this match. 

This was the exact scoreline in 2 of Blackpool’s last 4 home games. Also, in 2 of the last 5 rounds Bolton were involved in games that finished 1-1.
