Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bolton have witnessed a plethora of high-scoring games in recent weeks due to a combination of goals at both ends and Bolton’s weak defence. Ipswich may not be able to capitalise on any weak defence as the team are among the lowest scorers in the Championship. Our total goals prediction would be under 2.5 goals

First Goalscorer odds
Josh Magennis has not scored for Bolton since the hat-trick against Walsall in the FA Cup. However, his presence has provided other players with an ability to get on the scoresheet. Gary O’Neill has benefited from good form and he has been able to come up with two goals in his last four games. O’Neill was especially brilliant in the home win over Millwall at the start of March. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Gary O’Neill.
