Bolton v QPR
After picking up 10 points from their first four games, Bolton have managed just one from their last two and conceded five goals in the process. QPR, on the other hand, lost their first four games whilst conceding 13 goals but they’ve kept clean sheets in their last two. However, QPR are W3-D7-L16 on their travels since the start of last season and so we’re not so sure they should be favourites, particularly as the Trotters have lost only six of their last 21 at home. QPR have managed just two goals in their last seven away matches and since six of Bolton’s last seven victories were without conceding, we’re going to back the hosts to win to nil.
Bolton Win to Nil at 4.2
Bristol City v Sheffield Utd
Both these sides are in excellent form as City are on a run of three straight wins whilst Utd have won their last four to surge up the table after losing their first two. As a result, this has been priced up as a pick ‘em game and it’s certainly a tough one to call in terms of the outcome. What we’d be more confident about though is that there should be goals here. City are without a clean sheet in seven at home with four of their last six seeing more than three goals, whilst all six of Sheffield Utd’s recent away games have had more than two goals, with both teams scoring in five of their last seven on their travels.

Hull v Ipswich
Both these sides are struggling this term as Hull have managed only one win, whilst Ipswich have just three draws from their six games. They have at least been competitive though as they’re yet to concede more than twice, whilst they’ve lost just one of their last 13 on the road by more than one goal. As a result, Hull are perhaps on the short side here, particularly as they’ve lost their last five in front of their own fans and managed just two goals across these games. They’ve trailed at the break in four of these matches too, whilst Ipswich have trailed at the break in only one of their last 14 on their travels and so we’re going to chance Ipswich/Ipswich Half Time/Full Time at a big price.
