Bolton v Man UTD Tips - Young Guns

The new youthful looking Manchester UTD side continue their assault on the Premier League title with an early evening trip to Bolton on Saturday night and it's hard to see Owen Coyle's men stopping Man Utd from bagging all three points. Ashley Young is on fire for the away side, scoring again in the England international midweek v Wales and he looks to have given the Man UTD side some real balance and an extra threat going forward. Watch out for set pieces given away around the penalty area by Bolton as well as shooting opportunities from long range for Young.

Bolton play with an attacking philosophy under Coyle and their 3 premier league games so far this season have produced 13 goals. Manchester UTD are coming off the back of an 8 goal scoring spree v Arsenal and expect the goals to continue. The flanks will be where the main threat comes from for the away side and expect Man UTD to win their fair share of corners on the small Reebok surface area. Hernandez likely to come in for the injured Welbeck so if Bolton hold their high line, it could mean trouble in behind.

Advised Tips:
Tip 1: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.72 (Betfair)
Tip 2: Man UTD corners over 6.5 @ 8/11 (Bet365)
Tip 3: Ashley Young anytime scorer @ 11/5 | Brace @ 16/1 (B365)

Note: Corner bets on Nicspicks will be with BET365, where possible.

What is expected Strokes Gained Course Fit ?

Expected strokes gained course fit (xSGF) can be predicted using my model below. For prospective golf betting tips it projects ahead of time how many shots a player is expected to pick up per round on average on a particular golf course. It's weighed against a neutral golf course of the same rating. For example: Sam Horsfield at Celtic Manor vs TPC Southwind. This number will also portray ability level in terms of strokes gained total. Click "find out more" under the course fit golf betting model for info.

What is Progressive Form in Golf Betting?

Progressive form in golf betting differs from current form in that players are showing a trend in the right direction in their recent scoring. Trending form has a high predictive value in golf betting and can also catch players under the radar at an inflated price vs their true betting odds. For example - a player shows form of T40 - 24 - 24, but last week he was in the leading PGA Tour group on Sunday with Tiger Woods and had a bad round due to nerves. His finishing position may not fully capture his actual form.
