Bolton will need to end a run of nine defeats in a row against Liverpool if they are to get anything out of their match at Anfield tomorrow.
The Trotters have lost nine games on the bounce to the Merseysiders since a 2-0 home success in September 2006.
However, their record on the road last year – not to mention their odds in bwin’s 3Way betting market – suggests they may have to wait a while longer before stemming the red tide.
Owen Coyle’s side had the worst away record in the Premier League last season, winning just twice and only avoiding defeat in seven out of their 19 games.
With Liverpool having the fourth-best home record in the league in the 2010-11 campaign, it should come as no surprise that Bolton are 15/2 underdogs to win the match, with the draw at 3/1 and a Liverpool victory at 21/50.
Nevertheless, Bolton have been in good goalscoring form this season and look good continue this run at Anfield.
Owen Coyle’s side scored two against Manchester City in a 3-2 defeat, with the Citizens having the joint-best defence in the league last year.
They also scored four against QPR on the opening day of the season and twice more against Macclesfield in the Carling Cup on Wednesday.
If Bolton do score, they are more likely to do so in the second half, where they scored 63 per cent of their goals last season.
Liverpool were also more vulnerable to conceding after the break, making Bolton to score once in the second half an attractive proposition at odds of 21/10.
A £25 free bet on Bolton to score once in the second half, available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account, would return £77.50.
Having said that, Liverpool have scored at least twice in each of their last five home meetings with Bolton, meaning they are still likely to win even if they concede.
And with Liverpool also more prone to scoring after the interval, a bet on there to be more than 2.5 goals in the second half at odds of 13/5 could prove the best option.
