Oxford United vs Bolton by Shibby

League One action for me in a game that will be payed at The Kassam Stadium, Oxford. The game will kick off at 19:45 and will be played between Oxford United and Bolton.

The hosts head into this game with a chance of the play offs, they only joined League One last season when they were promoted from League Two. They have several games in hand on some clubs, so they do have a chance of a play off place if they can get some results together. Oxford's last few results have been quite inconsistent, they seem to win a game, then lose etc. What stands out to me is their last 4 games has seen BTTS in all 4. They have payed some top teams in the league in recent games, Sheffield United and Scunthorpe being two of them.

Oxford have some good players, players capable of playing in the Championship. However, some of them have took a step down to Oxford in hope of a quick promotion to the Championship. Oxford have goals across the team, they don't seem to rely one one or two players, they get goals from all players/positions etc.

The visitors of the game are promotion hopefuls Bolton, they have had a great season and have everything capable of a Championship club. They will be desperate to gain automatic promotion, however, it's very close at the top. Sheffield United are clear of Bolton by 9 points, however, Bolton have a game in hand. Then it's Fleetwood a point behind Bolton. So the visitors for the game will want to use this game in hand to keep Fleetwood away for a little longer!

Bolton head into the game vs Oxford on the back of three straight wins, vs Fleetwood, Gillingham and Northampton. 4 out of their last 5 games has seen BTTS, I think because they are going for victories every game, they seem to have let their defence slip a little in certain games.

I believe that there is so much pressure on Bolton and Oxford to get a result here tonight that they will both go for the win. Therefore, I'll be backing BTTS at a price of 1.83 with 10Bet. Good luck all.

Bet: Both teams to score @1.83 with 10bet
Result: 2-4 (won)

    That’s a tough market Samuel, however, I think in this game that should stand a chance.
