Best Tip: Over 1.5 goals

The stats suggest there isn't an obvious winner here, but the evidence does point towards the conclusion that Bristol R and Bolton will score 2 or more goals between them. That has been the case when they've gone head-to-head in the past, and neither Matt Taylor or Ian Evatt has served up too many 0-0s of late either. The bookmakers are predicting over 1.5 goals too, with top odds of 1.25 equating to approximately a 74% probability.
