Bolton vs Tottenham – Spirited Spurs set for stiff Bolton test
After demolishing Inter Milan on Tuesday, Owen Coyle’s Bolton side will be looking to extinguish the good vibes flowing out of White Hart Lane when Tottenham Hotspur visit the Reebok stadium in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
Martin Petrov will return to the Bolton squad after recovering from his hamstring sprain, but the Bulgarian may have to settle for a place on the bench with Matt Taylor set to retain his place.
Last weekend’s Liverpool result spelt the end of a five match unbeaten run for Bolton and also condemned them to their first home defeat of the season.
But Bolton are gaining a reputation as Premier League draw specialists alongside Fulham, sharing the spoils in six of their ten league games this season and the draw is available at 9/4.
Spurs are 11/8 to beat Bolton but their midweek exploits may have taken its toll on Harry Redknapp’s side who have won just once at the Reebok in 11 Premier League meetings.
Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in the Premier League this season and with defenders dropping like flies at the London club, Redknapp is yet to see any stability at the back and Bolton can take advantage of that.
With Bolton unable to keep a clean sheet also, just one in 18 Premier League matches, goals are expected and a 2-2 draw is available at 14/1.
Both teams to score is available at 4/6 and Kevin Davies has scored four goals in his last three games – he is attractively priced at 9/4 to score any time.
Gareth Bale is the man of the moment and the Bolton defence will be fearful of a player in such great form with the Welshman 5/2 to score any time.
Over 3.5 goals in the game is available at 12/5. See the full Bolton vs Tottenham betting odds here.
