Tip #2: Back Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.95 with bet365
Trouble continues for Bolton and this season, when they lost their first match against Burnley away from home. As being relegated from the Premier League wasn’t enough, that their season started with a loss and the Trotters are desperately looking for a first victory, hopefully on Reebok stadium on Tuesday night against Derby County. New players for the teams are: Keith Andrews from W.B.A as a free transfer, Matt Mills from Leicester City, Joe McKee from Burnley and Andy Lonergan from Leeds. Players that left the club after relegation were: Ricardo Gardner, Gretar Steinsson, Ivan Klasnic, Nigel Reo-Coker, Paul Robinson, Sean Davis and Dino Fazlic. Bet365 trusts that Bolton has or will find the right strategy against Derby, giving you 1.90 for the home victory. With some of the quality players staying in the team like goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, midfielder Martin Petrov and strike David N’gog, Bolton should be able to get back to the elite in a season or two. Back Trotters to win this match and finally make fans happy @ 1.90.

Derby started the season with a draw against Sheffield, but made the newspapers with their epic exit from the League Cup in round one, against Scunthorpe. What’s even more impressive is that Derby lead on half-time with 3:0 and until the 90th minute with 5-3, but managed to lose that lead and the game ended in regular time 5:5. After the extra time Derby lost with penalties, a surprise nobody expected. Derby has two victories on this stadium although the most recent one was back in 2002, ten years ago with 0:2. The odds for Derby to win this match are high @ 4.75 but with rusty Bolton, it’s not unlikely.

Bolton will need to finally get the 3 points here if they want to please the fans, and start working on their way back to Premier League. What better time, than to do it in front of a home crowd. Back Trotters to win this game @ 1.90 with bet365
Judging on the amount of goals scored in the two victories for Bolton against Derby, and the fact that the team still needs to find its way Under 2.5 Goals looks like a valuable and logical bet @ 1.95.
