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

Sunderland to win

Although Bolton have won their last two games, it’s fair to point out that they’ve lost five of their last seven games. Also, Bolton tend to struggle whenever they play against Sunderland; they’ve won just two of their last 15 encounters with Sunderland. On the other hand, Sunderland have been one of the best teams in League One this season; they’ve lost just once in their last six games, with three wins and two draws. Considering Sunderland have lost just twice in their last 15 clashes with Bolton, we believe that Sunderland will win.

Black Cats to strike first

We’ve mentioned that Bolton have lost five of their last seven games; we would also like to add that they have a tendency to start slow. As a result of their slow starts, Bolton usually concede the first goal; Ian Evatt’s men have conceded the first goal in five of their last seven games. In contrast, Sunderland tend to start strong, and because of that, they usually score first; Sunderland have drawn first blood in five of their last six games. Considering Sunderland have dominated Bolton in recent years, we’re making the prediction that they’ll bag the first goal.

A low scoring match

Bolton have not been a high-scoring side; they’ve failed to score in four of their last seven games, with just four goals scored in that stretch. Conversely, Bolton have kept two clean sheets in their last six games, conceding six goals. Most of Bolton’s recent games have been low-scoring, as five of their last six games went under 2.5. Also, meetings between these two have not produced a lot of goals; as five of their last six clashes went below the 2.5 goal line. With this in mind, our final pick for this game is under 2.5 total goals.

Bolton vs Sunderland: Team Overview

Bolton

Bolton won back-to-back games in the last two weeks; as a result, they’ve moved up five spots in the League One table, and are now five points clear off the relegation zone. Ian Evatt’s men will hope to string up three consecutive wins in the league for the first time this season; they’ll look to Oladapo Afolayan to lead the attack.

Sunderland

Sunderland defeated Portsmouth last weekend, putting an end to their three match winless run; they are now tied on points with league leaders Wigan, although they’ve played four more games. Lee Johnson’s men will need as many wins as they can get if they intend to win the title; all eyes will be on League One top scorer Ross Stewart today.
