These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your bet slip before confirming. 

Bolton or Draw 

Despite Barnsley being favored to win, we prefer to bet otherwise. The reasoning behind this is the fact that Barnsley has never actually been able to defeat Bolton before. Yes, they are in a good position to do it right now, but that’s not what we are going for. The hosts are in a good form winning 6 of their last 10 games and drawing 2. Barnsley on the other hand lost its aspiring manager after an incredibly impressive season, and it’s questionable how fine-tuned the squad and the new coach are. 

BTTS – Yes 

This seems to be an eventful match-up with a nice amount of goals being scored. Bolton has managed to keep a clean sheet against Barnsley in just 3 of their 8 total games. On the other hand, the guest side has never before kept a clean sheet against Bolton. 

Under 2.5 Goals 

This bet has been successful in 62.5% of the previous games between these teams. Furthermore, 5 of Bolton’s last 10 games finished with a 1-0 result which seems to be somewhat a repetitive trend. Barnsley’s match history also points in an Under 2.5 Goals direction with 70% of its recent games concluding in such fashion.

Can Barnsley takedown Bolton for the first time ever? 

While this isn’t out of the picture, we prefer to back the opposite option. Valérien Ismaël did wonders at Barnsley, improving the club’s Championship position from 21st to 5th place. Triumphing in the Championship play-offs would’ve just topped off the campaign perfectly, but it wasn’t meant to be. However, Ismaël made a name for himself with this campaign and now moved on to West Brom. 

His replacement Markus Schopp doesn’t seem to have the most spectacular resume. Coaching Sturm Graz’s second team and Austrian Bundesliga’s TSV Hartberg is all in the books for Schopp. He will definitely make a great impression taking down Bolton in the EFL Cup.
