Bolton are just three points above the relegation zone after 13 games, a situation they’ve brought Dougie Freedman in to remedy and the ex-Crystal Palace boss is capable of making an immediate impact as the Trotters entertain Cardiff in Freedman’s first game in charge.
Admittedly, the Bluebirds are top of the table but that is largely down to their hundred percent home record and indeed they have lost more games than they have won on the road.
One of those away defeats came against Dougie Freedman when he was at Palace so the Scot knows how to get the better of Malky Mackay’s men and with Wanderers actually pretty strong on their own patch, they look decent value at 11/8 with Stan James, especally as the appointment of a new manager is likely to give everyone at the Reebok Stadium a lift.
Second-placed Leicester would love to see Cardiff beaten and they look primed to capitalise as they head to Watford.
The Foxes suffered their first home reverse of the campaign against Crystal Palace last weekend and Nigel Pearson will be calling for an immediate response from his players.
Coral make him 5/4 to get it against an inconsistent Hornets side and City double up with Bolton at a generous 43/10 via the same firm.
In the same division, Betfred rate Huddersfield at 19/20 to bounce back from the heavy defeat at Millwall by beating struggling Bristol City and Paddy Power quote odds of 3/4 for a Hull success at home to Barnsley.
