Championship, kick-off at 3:00pm Saturday 14th October 2017 from Macron Stadium
Bolton’s return to the Championship hasn’t worked out the way they expected, The Trotters rooted to the bottom of the table after 11 games played. They’re the only side at this level without a win on the board, two draws and nine defeats the best they could manage. They’re already seven points off Burton Albion and safety.
These sides met in the EFL Cup earlier this summer at this venue, the locals winning by the odd goal in five. Fans will be hoping this quick-fire renewal lives up to the drama witnessed that day, but can Bolton repeat the feat and finally get off the mark? Our experts aim to put you in the picture with their betting tips and predictions.

Team News – Bolton
Phil Parkinson will surely be feeling nervous. He has endured a horrible start to the season and looks like a manager well out of his depth at the minute. If things don’t improve, and fast, he’ll find himself out of a job. Personally, I doubt they will be relegated, and once they get that elusive first win they should settle into a stride, but it has to come sooner rather than later, before those around them pull clear. Adrift in winter always spells trouble.
Wanderers suffered yet another defeat last time out, beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa away from home. Kodjia scored the winner on 39 minutes that day, rifling home a penalty, but the winning side finished up with 10 men, Taylor sent off on 94 minutes. Just three shots on target and 39% of the match possession means Bolton were rarely in the contest as a danger to the points.
Performances have been poor, but off-field worries certainly haven’t helped matters, with doubt over the future of the club. Chairman Ken Anderson spoke to the press recently, informing fans no one had been instructed to sell his club, but he is willing to listen to the offers of potential investors. He reckons there has been plenty of attention from around the world in getting involved too. A home win has been scratched out by traders, Wanderers priced at 7/2 by Sportingbet.
Team News – Sheffield Wednesday
After an iffy summer, Sheffield Wednesday appear to have settled into their stride and sit 12th in the table, just four points off the promotion play-off places. They’ve won two of their last five, but lost two of their last three, going down to derby rivals Sheffield United and Birmingham. Two teams they should never be losing to. The Owls did bounce back last time out, starting October with a 3-0 win.
Hosting Leeds, Hooper scored a first-half double, before Lee extended their cushion with a third on 82 minutes. Carlos Carvalhal talked about the importance of scoring first, picking that out as a turning point in the match. If you think they will break the deadlock again, there’s 4/6 at Boylesports, while Gary Hooper to score the first goal of the game again is worth a look at 9/2, top offer at bet365.
Five goals have been scored in each of the last two matches involving these sides, a 3-2 win for the team playing at home on each occasion. Back over 3.5 in the total goals market at 11/4 (Betfair), while both teams to score is even money with the same firm. Prefer to get your stake money down on a Wednesday win? They are 10/11 through bet365. The draw is a lively option at 13/5, bet365 leading the way on that one.
Bolton vs Sheffield Wednesday – Championship Tips and Betting Predictions
We’re going to stick with the stats and go with goals on Saturday. The pressure is on Bolton to bank a maximum pay-out, while Wednesday know three points would shove them towards the top-six promotion play-off places. Both teams to score in a Sheffield Wednesday win is the NAP of our betting tips at 18/5 with Coral.
A cracking price, and recent meetings would suggest we have every chance of getting that settled as a winner, but what’s the chances of another 3-2? I’d be surprised, but we’re keeping that in mind when targeting a pay-out in the correct score market, taking 3-1 Sheff Weds as the next best of our predictions. 17/1 at Bet Victor gives us something to aim at.
