Here we have a game involving two sides who have performed well below the standards that was expected of them this season, but the pride involved in both camps should ensure we get a match well worth watching. Here are our top Wigan v Millwall betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Match
Wigan sit 18th but could fall as low as 20th if results went against them or climb to 17th with the right set of scores. The Latics are unbeaten in four, that purple patch made up of two wins and a couple of draws.
Wigan went into last weekend looking to complete the hattrick of wins following success over Leeds United at Elland Road and Preston North End in front of their own fans. They failed to capitalise, however, ending with a 1-1 draw away to Birmingham, a fixture they looked more than capable of winning heading towards kick-off. Jutkiewicz gave his employers the best possible start when scoring inside two minutes but Powell equalised in first-half stoppage-time and both sets of players seemed happy enough with the share. Another draw is 9/4 with Bet365, the home cheer 13/10 with the same online bookmaker.
Lions Looking to Go Out With a Roar
Millwall fancied their chances of pushing for a play-off finish this season but what they ended up with was a poor campaign that saw them narrowly avoid relegation. The Lions are hovering dangerously close to the drop zone for much of the year to date but managed to pull themselves clear when it mattered most, picking up points while the teams below them in the pecking order failed to keep pace. Millwall are 21st in the Championship but have four more points on the board that Rotherham, meaning the latter are already relegated.
The Lions secured their safety in the second-tier of English football with a run of draws, ending level in four of their last five and that continued last weekend when holding on for a goalless finish at the Den when Stoke City came calling. A game with not a lot of quality on show, Millwall managed to put just one of their 13 shots at goal on target, while their opponents registered two on target from a dozen attempts. That, and their poor form all season, puts us off investing our hard-earned cash on an away win, despite Bet365 offering 21/10 to anyone who disagrees. Follow the clues given by the form and take a draw as our best bet.
