​​Bolton vs Cheltenham: Top free betting tips

Will the unexpected long pause for Cheltenham slow them down again? Our Bolton vs Cheltenham prediction is for yet another home win for the Trotters. 

Bolton are firmly in the race for direct promotion and they remain in the top 6 despite seeing their 5-game unbeaten run (W4 D1) in the league coming to an end last weekend. The Trotters won 8 of their last 9 home matches. Cheltenham remain in the relegation zone but they are high on confidence right now after securing 3 wins in the last 5 league games they played.

Total home goals prediction: Over 1.5 Bolton goals

Our first Bolton vs Cheltenham prediction backs the Trotters to score at least 2 goals. Bolton scored 15 goals in their last 5 home league games (3.00 goals per game). The Trotters got on the scoresheet in 12 of their 13 home league games so far. Also, Bolton scored 2 or more in 3 of the last 5 H2Hs.

​Total goals prediction: Odd

We think there is a high likeliness in this game to have an odd number of total goals. This was the case in all of the last 4 H2Hs. Also, Bolton saw 5 of their last 6 matches produce an odd amount of goals. This is why our next Bolton vs Cheltenham prediction is for an odd number of total goals. 

​​​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Bolton

Our final Bolton vs Cheltenham is as usual an attempt to predict the correct score. We fancy Bolton to edge this match 2-1. This was the exact scoreline in 1 of Bolton’s last 3 wins vs Cheltenham. Also, the last 2 league defeats for the Robins were 1-2 results.

All Robins fans who have the opportunity to make this long late-night trip in midweek deserve praise. Our advice for those who don’t have to go to work the following day, or have been cheeky enough to get themselves a sickie, is to simply book a room in a hotel in Bolton and stay the night. 

The driving distance between Cheltenham and Bolton is 141 miles (226km) but the journey time is still close to 3 hours as the road network is not very good.
