Ipswich Town host Bolton Wanderers in Saturday’s league meeting at Portman Road. Ipswich are presently just one of two teams including Birmingham City without a victory and their woeful form sees them rooted to the bottom of the standings. Bolton are yet to register a win since returning from the international break and their quick start has helped them stay clear of the drop zone. Phil Parkinson’s side are just two points behind the playoff positions. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Ipswich continued their winless start to the ongoing campaign as they registered a 1-1 draw against Brentford in midweek. The stalemate happened to be their fourth consecutive one in their home patch.
Bolton went without a victory for a fourth-straight game after succumbing to a 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough. Bolton have registered just one point against Preston North End over the past month.
Ipswich and Bolton previously met at the Macron Stadium in January which finished in a 1-1 draw. The last meeting at Portman Road witnessed Ipswich seal a 2-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions fancies Ipswich to pick up their first win of the season.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Ipswich win at 2.00[/bet_tip_now]
Bolton are at 4.00 to secure three points against Ipswich but we are not anticipating this result owing to their poor record at Portman Road. Bolton have found no success at Ipswich since 2002 and during this period, they have succumbed to five successive league defeats without a single goal scored. Bolton are also on a four-match winless run at the moment and this should put the hosts at an advantage as they seek to end their maiden triumph of the campaign. Our preview fancies an Ipswich Town win.

Ipswich Town vs Bolton Wanderers draw odds: 3.30
Bolton Wanderers win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Since 2012, Ipswich have contested Bolton on five occasions and they have managed to win each of those games without conceding. We are fancying them to end their winless run against the Trotters but a clean sheet may not be possible with their backline conceding at least once in every game. Our correct score prediction would go for an Ipswich 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Ipswich have drawn each of their home matches this term and this has resulted in the majority of those witnessing under three goals. However, they are likely to push for a victory against Bolton, who are more often reliant on their defensive setup and we are anticipating an open encounter. Our total goals prediction fancies more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Ipswich have netted just six goals in the first eight matches and this has meant that no one has stood out in the frontline. Despite this, we are going with Kayden Jackson this weekend after he notched a key equaliser against high-flying Brentford last weekend. He has drawn blank in his only previous meeting against Bolton. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Jackson.
