Bolton is hosting West Bromwich in last match of English Championship week 28.
Bolton is a team that certainly was not expecting to be fighting for their lives this season. Bolton are second to last on standings with only 22 points in 27 games, which is not nearly enough in a league competitive as English Championship. Bolton has managed to score only 18 goals and are getting ripped apart on the defensive end, and have conceded 40 goals. Bolton’s top goal scorer is Josh Magennis with 4 goals in 26 matches, this only tells us how bad Bolton really is offensively. Bolton’s priority at this moment is to escape relegation zone and every point counts, but with poor goal scoring and bad defense, it’s going to be really difficult.
West Bromwich is completely different story than Bolton. West Bromwich has great players, great game style and are only 6 points away from a direct promotion spot. West Bromwich’s top players are Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez who combined scored 27 goals which is only 1 goal less then entire Bolton squad. West Brom have scored 55 goals in 27 matches which is average of 2 goals per game. In West Brom’s previous match, they played 1-1 at home against direct competition for promotion. An important thing to add is that West Brom as a team has been shut out in only 4 matches this season.
Given the fact that Bolton are getting ripped apart on defensive end, and West Brom’s strikers are goal scoring machines, I will avoid betting on who will win and I will choose a bet on amount of goals scored by West Brom.
