Preston are under pressure following a run of four straight Championship defeats and could be worth taking on in Friday night’s Lancashire derby with Bolton.
The visitors have climbed off the foot of the table thanks to a five-match unbeaten run, with Wanderers enjoying a fine win over Norwich before the international break.
Phil Parkinson’s side are showing plenty of spirit and appeal at Evens to avoid defeat in our Preston vs Bolton betting predictions.
A Look At Preston North End’s Betting Odds
Preston looked potential promotion contenders when losing only one of their first 12 league games this season, but those hopes have been hit hard by the current run of poor results.
It should be noted that they have faced three of the top eight teams in this division in Wolves, Aston Villa and Ipswich during this bleak spell.
However, Alex Neil hasn’t been done any favours by a lengthy injury list, especially at the back, and conceding at least twice in each of the last six fixtures is an obvious concern.
“We don’t need to sit here and feel sorry for ourselves but our last two performances have been very disappointing,” said the manager.
“We have a smallish squad and now have nine players missing through injury – we are being stretched to the limit.”
Those defensive problems make 91/100 for both teams to score in this match tempting from the Preston vs Bolton odds.
A Look At Bolton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Bolton lost eight straight Championship games during August and September, scoring only one goal in the process, but they returned from the last international break with a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.
Three draws followed that victory and the Trotters then secured their second triumph at this level as first-half goals from Gary Madine and Adam Armstrong proved enough to end Norwich’s bid for a fifth successive away league win.
Parkinson has stood by some players who were criticised during the leaner times and that has helped to create a united squad.
Wanderers still haven’t won away this term, though, so we’ll complete our Preston vs Bolton betting tips by taking 4/1 for a score draw.
Ipswich 3-0 PRESTON
BOLTON 2-1 Norwich – Gary Madine, Adam Armstrong
Head-to-head: Bolton 1-2 Preston, Preston 0-0 Bolton
