Saturday’s round of Championship fixtures gets started at 12.30pm with this match that will be shown live on Sky Sports. Watch the tie and bet on a number of exciting markets, including the winner, both teams to score and total goals. Here are our top Wigan v Swansea betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Wigan Athletic have picked up just one of the last six points available to them and a poor run of form has dragged them down to 18th in the table. Another defeat here could see the hosts dragged further into the danger area. They are currently three points better than Middlesbrough and the danger area. Winning their home games is vitally important.
Across the field and Swansea fans have had things much better in the early exchanges. They started the week in fourth place with 25 points on the board, two behind leaders West Brom. The Swans ended a three-game winless run at the weekend when beating great rivals Cardiff 1-0 on Sunday. That grudge win came thanks to a Wilmot strike on 24 minutes.
Good Chance of an Away Day
Manager Steve Cooper thought his boys fully deserved their victory and told sportswriters at the end of the match the performance pleased him. He’ll be eager to build on that and add another three points here, putting together a run of form. The home win is 2/1 second-favourite with Bet365, ahead of the draw at 9/4 with the same firm.
Punters looking to take an away day can get their hands on a cracking 7/5 at William Hill. That’s sure to prove popular in weekend accumulators and will help boost your returns. Both teams to score is an alternative if you’d prefer to avoid picking the match-winner. That’s trading at 4/5 – top price at William Hill.
