Oxford United v Bolton Wanderers betting preview
Oxford United will be happy with their performances so far in their first season back in League One following last year's promotion from the fourth tier. As things stand, the U's look comfortable in the top half of the table and they may even be able to make a late push for the play-offs as they sit in ninth place with nine matches remaining.
Michael Appleton's men are currently just five points away from the top six with a game in hand on sixth-placed Southend United, although many of the other clubs chasing a top six spot have games in hand on the team's around them too. He needs his side to pick up all three points on Tuesday night at odds of 8/5 with William Hill.
Bolton Wanderers are in a more prominent promotion chase as they look to secure an immediate return to the second tier under the stewardship of Phil Parkinson. The experienced lower league boss has his team performing well and sitting in second place at this stage of the season although they're only one point clear of third placed Fleetwood right now.
After a very shaky start to the new year and some surprising defeats in February, recent form has been better for the Trotters and they come into this game on the back of three consecutive victories over Fleetwood Town, Gillingham and most recently, Northampton Town. Can they make it four wins from four here at odds of 15/8 with bet365
We're surprised that bet365 are offering such value on a Bolton win here given that they come into the match on the back of three victories whilst Oxford have lost three of their last four home games. The U's have both scored and conceded in their last four games so the away win and both teams to score bet at odds of 5/1 looks very decent at bet365
Adam Le Fondre is starting to find form at Bolton Wanderers. The ex-Reading and Rotherham striker has always been a goalscoring threat throughout his career and after a slow start to his latest loan spell at the Macron Stadium, he comes into this game having scored four times in his last three outings. 2/1 with BetVictor
