Lincoln to Win

The team that was so close to gaining promotion but lost in the playoffs final started the new season with four points from the first two matches. Meanwhile, Bolton started the season with a couple of draws, so this should be an interesting match. Still, Lincoln has the quality to see Bolton off and they’ve done so convincingly in their last meeting when they beat Bolton 5-1, so our prediction for this match is for Lincoln to win it.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

As we already mentioned, the last duel between these two teams ended with six goals, so we expect to see another high-scoring match in their upcoming duel. After all, Bolton averaged six goals per game in their first two matches this season in League One, so they are obviously on the roll. Meanwhile, Lincoln averaged exactly 2.5 goals in the first two games, so these teams should combine for at least three goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in five of the six matches played by these two teams since the start of the season, including their games in the League Cup. Things are even better for our prediction if we only look at their League One matches since both teams scored in all four games played by Bolton and Lincoln so far. To top it off, their last h2h meeting also ended with both teams scoring.

Lincoln vs Bolton preview: Can Bolton do better this time?

Two solid teams will face each other in the third round of League One, so let’s take a closer look at them and what we can expect from their duel:

Lincoln

Many were surprised last season when Lincoln secured a spot in the playoffs, but the team didn’t stop there. They reached the final and ultimately lost to Blackpool at Wembley, despite taking the lead in the first minute of the game. Lincoln also started the new season well, with a win and a draw in the first two League One matches, but they were eliminated from the EFL Cup after they lost to Plymouth on penalties.

Bolton

After one season in League Two, Bolton swiftly returned to League One. While that’s still far away from their glory days as a Premiership team, Bolton’s fans are probably hoping that their team can fight for another promotion this season. The team started the new season with two 3-3 draws in the league, as well as a 0-0 draw with Barnsley in the EFL Cup. Luckily for Bolton, they won that game after penalties to secure a spot in the next round.
