Bolton vs West Ham – History suggests Bolton are a huge price

| 08.04.2011

The 2,000 or so West Ham fans will not be looking forward to their trip to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday considering their side have never managed to take all three points home with them.

West Ham look destined to remain in the relegation zone come Saturday evening and Bolton look the banker of the weekend at a frankly ridiculous 1/1 to win.

Match Odds

Add to their incredible home record against West Ham the fact Bolton have won all of their previous seven games against West Ham in all competitions, and it’s hard to find a reason not to back Bolton at such a big price.

West Ham are 11/4 to win on Saturday but as mentioned before, they don’t at the Reebok and the Hammers can only hope of taking a point back down the M6 with the draw priced at 12/5.

Bolton have lost just one of their last 10 home games in the Premier League and with their home form strong, it’s hard to think of a reason not to back Bolton this weekend.

Total Goals

Kevin Davies enjoys a superb record against West Ham with eight goals in his last 11 appearances against the Hammers, and Davies looks a solid bet at 11/2.

On paper it isn’t a game that would scream goals, but only two clean sheets have been kept in the last ten games and backing both teams to score at 8/13 and over 2.5 goals at 5/6 can return a tidy profit.

Bolton have beaten West Ham 3-1 on four of the last six occasions and with Ladbrokes offering 14/1 that Bolton make it five 3-1 results from seven looks a very nice earner.

The other two games finished 2-1 to Bolton and as an insurance bet, punters may want to take the 5/1 in the coupled correct score market for Bolton to win 2-1 or 3-1.

A £20 stake on Bolton beating West Ham 3-1 would return £300. Take advantage of Ladbrokes Premier League odds.
