Man UTD v Bolton Tips

Man UTD look to bounce back from two Premier League defeats on the spin as a somewhat resurgent Bolton head to Old Trafford for the live Saturday game.

Man UTD v Bolton Key Stats / Information

Man UTD are averaging 3 goal per game in the Premier League at home this season despite a poor run around November. 3 of last 4 games for Man UTD have seen five goals with UTD shipping three to Blackburn last time out at Old Trafford. On the road this season, Bolton have scored 14 and conceded 19 and are coming off the back of a 2-1 away win vs Everton. Bolton have failed to keep a clean sheet in the EPL since the opening day away from home.

Man UTD v Bolton potential lineup / game pattern

Goal keeping dilemma for Ferguson as both Lindergaard and De Gea have been dodgy in recent games, while Vidic remains an absentee at the back. Man UTD have been very leaky of late and Bolton are likely to come to Old Trafford and have a go just as Blackburn did over Christmas. Bolton are playing some decent attacking football of late and the likes of Ngog and Petrov's pace may upset the UTD defense. Nani and Valencia could continue down the right flank for UTD and that will be a key area for Bolton to defend. Paul Scholes may be recalled to plug the gaps in UTD's midfield and watch for shots from range from the comeback kid.

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.
