Our Latest Bolton vs Plymouth Predictions

If you are looking for the best football betting tips, including our predictions for Bolton vs Plymouth, you are in the right place:

Plymouth to Win

Two teams from League One will meet in the EFL Trophy final and they are both teams that have a chance of being promoted to Championship since Plymouth is first in the standings right now and Bolton is fifth.

However, Plymouth is also sixteen points ahead of Bolton, so they had a much better season so far. Also, Plymouth beat Bolton once this season already, while their other duel ended in a draw. All that considered, our first Bolton vs Plymouth prediction is for Plymouth to win the EFL Trophy.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Four of the last five head-to-head duels between Bolton and Plymouth have gone under 2.5 total goals and we would be surprised if that's not the case on Sunday too.

After all, this is the final of a competition and both teams are likely going to enter it cautiously. So, taking their recent h2h record into account as well, our second Bolton vs Plymouth prediction is for the match to go under 2.5 total goals.

Bolton – Plymouth Preview – Team News, Recent Form, and Probable Lineups

Let's take a better look at both teams ahead of their duel, including our predicted Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid lineups:

Bolton

Just one win in the last six games in League One is a clear signal that Bolton is not in the best of forms at the moment. Despite this poor run, Bolton is still fifth in the standings and one of the main favourites to secure a spot in the playoffs, although that is in question more than before their recent bad run of results. Beating Plymouth to win the EFL Trophy could be the push that the team needs ahead of the season's finish.

Meanwhile, Bolton remains without injured Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, MJ Williams, and Jack Iredale at this moment.

Bolton Predicted Lineup:

Trafford – Jones, Santos, Toal – Bradley, Sheehan, Dempsey, Lee, John – Charles, Adeboyejo

Plymouth

With four wins and two losses in the last six matches in League One, Plymouth has been in solid form recently and the team is overall having a great season so far. After all, they are sitting at the top of League One standings right now and they are in good position to secure promotion to Championship, in addition to being in the EFL Trophy final.

When it comes to team news, Sam Cosgrove and Michael Cooper are out with injuries ahead of the EFL Trophy final.

Plymouth Predicted Lineup:

Burton – Wilson, Bolton, Gillesphey – Mumba, Houghton, Mayor, Earley – Azaz, Hardie, Mayor

Player to Watch: Ryan Hardie

Since we can see Plymouth winning the EFL Trophy, our player to watch in this final comes from their team and it is their forward Ryan Hardie, who scored four times in the competition before this final.

The Scottish striker has done well for the team overall this season as he has thirteen goals and three assists in League One, including one goal against Bolton too. So, Bolton will have to keep a close eye on Hardie in this match.
