Bolton vs Plymouth – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Bolton put their seven-game unbeaten run at home on the line when they take on Plymouth on Saturday. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Bolton to Win

Bolton needed a last-gasp equalizer Jon Böðvarsson to rescue a point at home to Morecambe on Tuesday evening, though the result did allow Wanderers to push their unbeaten run at the University of Bolton Stadium to seven games. Indeed, Bolton have claimed 19 points from the last 21 on offer on home soil and their ability to carve out results in front of their own supporters means they are worth backing to beat Plymouth.

Both Teams to Score

Plymouth are playing with enough confidence to give Bolton a real run for their money however, and having notched in all but one of their last nine away assignments, we’re tipping the visitors to find the net on Saturday. Ian Evatt’s prolific Wanderers have scored in 11 of their last 12 home tests themselves, so expect action at both ends in Horwich.

Over 2.5 Goals

Fixtures at the University of Bolton Stadium have been providing plenty of entertainment over the past few months, with four of Wanderers’ last six matches there producing over 2.5 goals. Those games averaged 4.16 goals per 90 minutes and Bolton’s attacking approach should ensure supporters are treated to another exciting afternoon when Plymouth come to town on Saturday.

Bolton vs Plymouth Match Preview and Team News


Gethin Jones, Elias Kachunga, Andy Tutte, Lloyd Isgrove, Kieran Lee and Josh Sheehan are expected to miss out for Bolton this weekend, while Kyle Dempsey – who missed Tuesday’s draw with Morecambe – could be absent again on Saturday. Wanderers are in good form, though their surge has come too late to mount a playoff push.


Plymouth are set to be without Alfie Lewis, Dan Scarr, Brendan Galloway and George Cooper this weekend with all four players currently injured. Argyle enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win over Wimbledon on Tuesday and their victory allowed them to climb into the playoff positions. Plymouth have two games in hand over Sunderland just above them.
