Oxford United play Bolton in League One tonight and this match is vital to both teams’ aspirations of being promoted to the Championship for next season.
Bolton currently sit second just a point ahead of third place and they will want to avoid the lottery of the play-offs by staying in second place until the end of the season. Oxford are five points away from the play-off places and so every point is vital if they are to get into the end of season play-offs for a place in the Championship. We’ve picked three betting tips for tonight’s League One match and you can see them below.
Oxford have hit a slightly sticky spell in the quest for the Championship. They’ve lost three and won just two of their last five matches, following a run of five wins in six. Before they beat Scunthorpe 2-1 in their last home match they have lost their previous three at home, failing to score in two of those. Bolton’s poor form at the start of 2017 is now a thing of the past and they’re in great form. They’re unbeaten in five and have won their last three, scoring 10 goals. My banker bet for Oxford vs Bolton tonight is both teams to score. Bolton have only failed to score ones in their last seven away (at Sheff Utd). Both teams have scored in five of Oxford’s last six games so BTTS is my first betting tip. It’s 4/5 with Ladbrokes.
Oxford’s home form is a worry so I think the best value for a team to win bet lies with Bolton tonight. They’ve scored four in each of their last two away matches and that goal scoring power could be enough to win our second Oxford vs Bolton prediction for tonight. The best odds for Bolton to beat Oxford are 19/10 with bet365 and I think that’s a great price.
