​Bolton vs Bristol Rovers: Top free betting tips

Our Bolton vs Bristol Rovers prediction is for a close game that has a good chance of finishing without a winner. Can either team prove us wrong?

Bolton lost the top-of-the-table derby vs Portsmouth last weekend. Despite that, the Trotters remain in the top 2 and they are dreaming of a promotion right now. At home, Bolton won 6 consecutive games. Bristol Rovers changed managers recently but they continue to struggle for wins. Recorded 4 draws in the last 7 rounds (W2 L1). 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both sides managed to get on the scorehseet in 5 of their last 6 H2Hs. Also, Bristol Rovers saw 4 of their last 5 matches produce BTTS outcomes. This is why with our first Bolton vs Bristol Rovers prediction we back both teams to find the back of the net. 

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Our next Bolton vs Bristol Rovers prediction is for the game to have fewer than 3 total goals. This was the case in 4 of the last 5 H2Hs and in 4 of the last 5 games Bristol Rovers played. Bolton also saw 3 of their last 4 matches stay under 2.5 goals. 

​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

Following the logic of our first two betting tips we give you our final Bolton vs Bristol Rovers prediction and it is for a 1-1 draw. Amazingly all of the last 3 clashes between the sides hosted by Bolton finished 1-1. Also, 3 of the last 5 league games Bristol Rovers played produced 1-1 draws.
