Bolton Wanderers are at the Macron Stadium for Saturday’s league meeting against Hull City. The hosts have managed just a solitary win since the end of August and the poor run of form sees them just four points adrift of the drop zone. Hull, meanwhile, have struggled to get clear of the relegation zone with a similar league run and they are second-last in the standings with goal difference separating them from bottom-placed Ipswich Town. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bolton went winless for the fourth game on the bounce as they were humbled 3-0 at home by Nottingham Forest. Lewis Grabban had the first perfect match for the visitors with two goals and an assist.
Hull have gone without a victory in seven matches and their most recent game ended in a slender 1-0 defeat to Bristol City. Famara Diedhiou denied Hull a share of the spoils with a 93rd-minute winner for the hosts.
Bolton’s previous league meeting versus Hull City was at the Macron Stadium on New Year’s Day where they bagged a 1-0 win. Gary Madine netted the sole goal in the first half of that game. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a score draw.

Bolton are given a price of 3.00 for the win while Hull are backed at 2.62 for the same. However, we are not anticipating a victory for either with both struggling to find their feet in the scoring department. Both teams have failed to find the net in three matches this month and we are expecting a tight encounter with neither side prevailing.

Bolton Wanderers win odds: 3.00
Hull City win odds: 2.62
Correct Score odds
Bolton’s home form was their main strength during the previous campaign but they have not managed to replicate a similar showing this term with just five goals from seven outings. Hull’s away run has been equally woeful with just five goals from seven outings. The visitors are currently without a goal in three successive away trips but we are still fancying them to get something from this game with manager Nigel Adkins’ job on the line. Our correct score prediction is to go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bolton may have struggled to garner regular wins but their defensive organisation has been impressive with just one of their previous seven matches witnessing more than two goals. The trend has been quite similar with Hull with a maximum of two goals involved in their last five games. Our total goals prediction expects less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Young forward Jarrod Bowen has been Hull’s shining light over the past 18 months and he has continued his good form this term with four goals from 14 appearances. The 21-year-old has bagged two goals from his previous five matches while opening the scoring on the one occasion via a penalty. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Bowen.
