What Trueform says for Aston Villa vs Bolton
Aston Villa have struggled on the road recently but can gain a confidence-boosting win over Bolton, judged on their Trueform ratings when playing at home.
The Midlands outfit have picked up a healthy 12 points from seven games at Villa Park, with 13 goals scored in those Championship fixtures.
Wanderers look to be going downhill and 11/10 for the hosts to prevail by more than one goal is our opening Aston Villa vs Bolton prediction.
A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds
Dean Smith got off to a good start as Villa boss when beating Swansea 1-0 on home turf, but away defeats at Norwich and QPR have hampered any progress.
Villa did play their part in competitive contests against two in-form teams, though, and the new boss remains upbeat.
The Midlands side had 68 per cent of the possession in a 1-0 loss at Loftus Road, with 18 attempts made on goal.
“We dominated the game for long periods and created big chances we didn’t take,” commented Smith. “QPR were very fortunate.
“We played well and didn’t deserve to come away with nothing. I think if we score at any time during the game, we go on and win it.
“In the short time we’ve worked together, there’s a good structure about us, we just haven’t put the finishing touch to it.”
The likes of Tammy Abraham, Jack Grealish, Yannick Bolasie and Jonathan Kodjia should be able to get things going up front again here.
A Look At Bolton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Bolton’s early-season promise, when picking up 10 points out of 12 at the beginning of the campaign, has all but evaporated of late.
Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Hull left them with just one point gained and a single goal scored from their last five Championship fixtures.
Phil Parkinson’s side have failed to find the back of the net in seven of 11 games since that bright start to the season.
Wanderers were jeered off the pitch by factions of frustrated home supporters after being unable to seriously trouble Hull goalkeeper David Marshall.
“We got in some great positions, but we were lacking that moment of quality,” admitted the manager.
The Trotters have trailed at the break in all seven defeats this term, so 11/10 for the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time completes our Aston Villa vs Bolton betting tips.
QPR 1-0 ASTON VILLA
BOLTON 0-1 Hull
