Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

The statistics suggest there isn't an obvious winner in this fixture, but good reason to think Bolton and Oxford Utd will score 2 or more goals between them. Goals have flowed freely when they've gone head-to-head historically, and neither Ian Evatt or Des Buckingham has subjected their supporters to too many 0-0s of late either. The bookmakers predict over 1.5 goals too, with best odds of 1.29 equating to roughly a 81% probability.
