Leeds vs Bolton betting tips and predictions for the Carabo Cup first round match at Elland Road on Tuesday 14th August. Leeds have made a flying start to the season and will expect to see off Bolton in this League Cup match too.
The League Cup always takes on varying weight of interest for football managers and it remains to be seen how serious these two Championship sides take the tournament, however we’re expecting Leeds will play a strong team as they look to keep up the momentum of their strong start to the season.
Given that Leeds have started the season with seven goals in two matches, it is no surprise to see that they are favourites to win this League Cup match against Bolton. Wanderers have also had a positive start to the season with a win at West Brom on matchday 1 before a 2-2 draw with Bristol City. Given that there will be changes to both sides here, and the fact that the League Cup is always quite an exciting tournament to watch, we’re including a BTTS in the first of our Leeds United vs Bolton predictions and going for Leeds to win and both teams to score. The best odds are 13/5 with 888Sport.
Both the these teams have been involved in two high scoring matches a piece in the Sky Bet Championship so far this season. This ties nicely into our anytime goalscorer tip as we’re expecting a few goal at Elland Road on Tuesday night. The selection for our football tip is Kemer Roofe, who scored twice in the brilliant 4-1 weekend win against Derby in the Championship on Saturday and if he starts the match he’s one to bet on again here.
Bolton threw away a two goal lead against Bristol City at the weekend and we’re already predicting a high scoring match from our earlier Leeds United vs Bolton betting tips in the League Cup. A correct score bet is a bit of a punt on a match like this but there is no harm in having a stab in the hope of getting a big odds winner. Given that Leeds have already scored three goals against Stoke City and four against Derby County, we expect another Leeds win here and are going for a 3-1 correct score prediction.

It is no surprise to see Leeds are favourites to win this match and the best odds you’ll get are 7/10 with bet365. The draw is 16/5 with William Hill and the best odds for Bolton to cause a shock and knock Leeds out of the competition are 17/4 with bet365. Leeds are now favourites to win the English Championship after impressing in their first two wins of the season and they’ll look to keep that momentum going when Bolton visit Elland Road.
The visitors will be looking to consolidate their position in the Championship after avoiding relegation last season and a cup run this early in the season would do them no harm at all. If you think they can cause a shock here then a bet on Bolton to win and BTTS at odds of 9/1 with Betfair could be a sensible way to play this potential upset.
If you want to bet on Leeds to win but get some bigger odds, then there is nothing to put you off betting on Leeds to be winning at half-time and full-time using the half-time/full-time betting tips market. The odds for this are 7/4 with Boylesports.
