Bolton v Eastleigh predictions and FA Cup betting tips for this week’s first round replay and the best three predictions for the match from our tipster.
Championship relegation battlers Bolton Wanderers host Conference playoff hopefuls Eastleigh at the Macron stadium in the FA Cup 3rd round replay and our betting preview includes three tips.
Neil Lennon’s side have been atrocious all season. They’ve drawn far too many games this season, and cannot find a win to save their lives. They’re in a financial crisis and look destined to go into administration whist they struggle to pay the players and staff over the last few months.
Eastleigh on the other hand are a club on the rise. They’ve seen themselves rise through the leagues and with the financial backing they have, will fancy themselves to be a professional league team in a very short space of time. They have a clear five year plan highlighted by their manager which sees them at least in League Two by the end of it.
Both teams enter the match in pretty bad form. Neither side have won in their last four games each. Bolton are still a Championship team, and although they are struggling, their squad isn’t actually that bad when all players are fully fit. Eastleigh will be hoping for a massive scalp in beating Bolton, but they’ve never been this far in the FA Cup, and I do believe that the professional footballers of Bolton will pip Eastleigh to this game.
My first tip is simply Bolton to win. Bet365 are offering 17/10 just for them to win, and although it is just under Evens, this screams value as Eastleigh are three divisions below Bolton. Bolton will see this as a game they must win, very similar to Villa, as this can be a catalyst for the rest of the season. The financial benefits of a decent cup run would also help the cash strapped club.
My first Bolton v Eastleigh prediction is for Bolton to win and the best odds are 17/20 at Bet365.

My next football bet is for there to be under 2.5 match goals. I can see this game being very boring, a midweek game in probably terrible weather conditions won’t benefit the players or fans either. 1-0 or 2-0 for Bolton seems fairly likely so I’m confident in under 2.5 match goals.
My second football prediction for Bolton v Eastleigh is under 2.5 goals to be scored in the 90 minutes. You can get 21/20 with Stan James.

My final football betting tip for Bolton v Eastleigh is for Gary Madine to score anytime. He will fancy himself to get into a scoring run for his team against non-league opponent. He’s 7/4 with Betfred to score anytime.
Under 2.5 match goals – 21/20 with Stan James – BET HERE.
