Leeds have won their last two league games and if they keep that going until the end of the season, they will guarantee automatic promotion. This isn’t a bad home game for them as well with Wigan struggling to avoid relegation. The Latics are two points clear of the drop zone. Read our Leeds v Wigan betting tips for more.

Leeds took a home win over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, so that is back to back league successes for them. At Elland Road, they have produced a W14 D3 L4 record this season and they have won five of their last six there. Leeds have won their last two on home soil and this one will be their penultimate home league game for the season. Leeds have averaged 1.7 goals per home game this season. Defensively they have conceded at under a goal per home fixture.
Leeds have banked a clean sheet in 43% of their home games this season. They have not been involved in a home draw in any of their last 13 at Elland Road. Leeds have scored two-thirds of their home goals in the second period of fixtures. They have opened the scoring in 12 of their home fixtures. Leeds have the joint-best home record this season in the Championship alongside leaders Norwich. They have the third-best defence as well and the Whites are the fourth highest scorers.
Leeds earned a 2-1 away win over Wigan earlier this season
Leeds are unbeaten in their last four against the Latics
Wigan are W2 D2 L1 in their five previous games at Elland Road
The overall head to head is even at four wins each and four draws
Wigan held out for a good point at home against Norwich on the weekend. They are only the two points above the drop zone though heading back into the weekend so have some work to do. It has been a poor season away from home that they have had, with just a W1 D4 L16 record behind them. The Latics have averaged under a goal per away game, while they have collected exactly two goals per road game on average.
Wigan have lost four of their last five out on their travels, but they have scored in all but one of their last seven away from home. They have not won any of their last 19 league away games though and in that span of matches haven’t earned a clean sheet either. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five away games. Each of those five went over 2.5 goals. Wigan have scored 74% of their away goals in the first period of fixtures.
Leeds surely have to take their chances in this one at Elland Road. Wigan have had a dreadful season on the road and the Whites can pounce in this one. Leeds to win to nil looks a solid enough proposition.

Norwich are within touching distance of the Championship title now. They continued their long undefeated streak of form in midweek with a point against Reading. It is a road trip that they take on this weekend as the visit Wigan, who are struggling near the relegation zone, so this is a huge game for the Latics too. Read our Wigan v Norwich betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 12th, 2019 at 5:17 p.m.)
The survival hopes of Wigan took another hit in midweek as they lost 2-1 away at Hull. That means Wigan have won only one of their last 11 championship fixtures. Their away form has been pretty much dreadful all season long, but they are on a seven-match undefeated streak of form on home soil. They have drawn four of their last five at home and one of those was against playoff hopefuls Middlesbrough and recently they went to Bristol City and held out for a point. So they do have it in them but getting wins on the board is a massively tough ask for them.
The overall home form of Wigan this season reads W9 D7 L4 and they have scored an average of 1.25 goals per home fixture. Their defence has been good on home soil as they average under a goal per game there this season. In total Wigan have claimed a clean sheet in 45% of their home fixtures. Six of their nine home wins have been by just the one goal margin only and they have only been trailing at the halftime break in four home fixtures this season. There are only four teams currently in the Championship who have scored fewer goals than the Latics have done
Norwich earned a 1-0 home win over Wigan earlier this season
The Canaries are undefeated in their last three against the Latics
Norwich have taken four points from their last two league visits to Wigan
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
Norwich are flying on a nine-match undefeated streak of form at the top of the table. They had won eight in a row before being held to a surprise 2-2 home draw against Reading in midweek. They won’t be too phased by that though. The Canaries have won their last four away games and they have produced at least two goals in four of their last six on the road. In total, league leaders Norwich have averaged 1.85 goals per away game this season, with 60% of their road games going above 2.5 goals.
Norwich have hit the back of the net in each of their last ten away games, scoring in each of their last 22 home and away combined. Norwich away record this season stands at W11 D7 L2 and defensively they have been tight, averaging under a goal per game against. The Canaries have bagged a clean sheet in 30% of away games, while both teams have scored in 70% of their road fixtures. In eleven of their away games, Norwich have been level at the half time break, scoring 65% of their away goals in the second half of games. Norwich have the best away record in the Championship as well as being the top scorers.
Norwich are just gunning for the finish line at this point and should be able to crack open Wigan’s defence in this one. There hasn’t been enough from the Latics to suggest that they are going to pull off an upset. Away win.
13th April 2019 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
There should be a really interesting clash here because Wigan have done really well on home soil up in the Championship. That is in stark contrast to some abysmal away form. Leeds have managed to sustain their lofty position in the league in spite of them having only claimed the two wins in their last seven outings in the Championship. Read our Wigan v Leeds betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Wigan have now lost back to back Championship games after they suffered a loss out at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United last weekend. However, both defeats were away from home and the Latics have superb home form. Wigan have not tasted defeat in the Championship on home soil this season where they have produced a superb W5 D2 record from their seven games. This season so far they have hosted one of the current top five and they picked up a 1-0 win over West Brom in that fixture. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm) and less than half of their home games have gone over the goal line.
All of Wigan’s home successes this season have been by a one-goal margin and three of their last four wins at home have been by a 1-0 scoreline. Wigan to win by a one-goal margin is at 15/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm). Defensively they have done so well, especially for a newly promoted side, as they have only conceded five goals in seven home games. They are on a three-match streak of clean sheets earned at home in the league.
Just to sum up the amount of Wigan’s home form, which is clearly keeping them afloat, 85% of Wigan’s points this season in the Championship have been earned on home soil. 77% of the goals conceded by Wigan this season have come away from home. So there are clear trends with them in terms of output in home and away games. 61% of the goals that Wigan have scored this season have been in the first half of matches. The Latics have gone out and opened the scoring in six of their seven home fixtures this season which is another good trend.
Each of the last six meetings between these have gone under 2.5 goals
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six league meetings
From six Championship meetings, things are even with two wins each
Wigan are W2 D1 L1 in four previous league home games against Leeds
Leeds are clinging on to second place in the Championship. Last weekend they were held at Elland Road by Nottingham Forest in a 1-1 draw. That is four points from their last two games in the second tier now. Leeds are W3 D3 L1 for the season on their travels but they have won just one of their last four on the road (D2 L1). They haven’t been faltering in front of goal though because they are on a nine-match scoring streak in the Championship. Both teams to score is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm) and is a good betting tip for Wigan v Leeds.
Leeds have averaged a goal per game against them on the road this season and two of the three away wins that Leeds have produced have been by a three-goal margin (against Norwich and Derby). So far away from home this season in the league Leeds have not conceded an away goal in the final fifteen minutes of any match. They have only netted the first goal of the game in three of their fixtures away from Elland Road, while they have been leading at half time just twice on their travels. This not going to be a particularly easy game for them. The shortest-priced option in the correct score market is the 1-1 draw at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm).
A low scoring game looks set for this one, especially taking a glance back at the recent history between the two. The impressive thing about Wigan’s home form is their defence and they may have enough to stick in there and pick themselves up a good point in a draw.
1st November 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Wigan have done really well following their promotion up to the Championship. They are sitting in the top ten heading into the midweek action. Swansea are right there with them level on sixteen points so this is going to be a pretty big clash between the pair of them. Read our Wigan v Swansea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.)
The Latics have done really well this season but there is a clear trend going on with them. They have won five games this term and four of those have cropped up on home soil. They are undefeated at home in the Championship this season with a W4 D1 record posted. Each of their four wins have been by a one-goal margin as well. A Wigan to win by a one-goal margin is at 13/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 8:58 pm). They have won their last three in a row at home.
Given their output, under 2.5 goals is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 8:58 pm). The Latics have scored in each of their home games this season and they have not been trailing at half time in any of their home games so far. 64% of the goals that they have scored in the second division this season been in the first half of matches. Wigan have the joint best home form in the entire Championship this season (alongside Brentford and Middlesbrough).
The Swans have a W4 D4 L2 record for the season so it has been pretty solid stuff from them along the way. Over the weekend they produced a good 3-0 home win over QPR on home soil and that snapped a three-game sequence of no goals scored by the Swans. They have averaged exactly a goal per game this season in the Championship and have failed to score in half of their league matches, home and away combined. Both teams not to score is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 8:58 pm).
Away from home this season the Swans are W2 D2 L1 and have collected just the one win in their last four. Going back to their lack of scoring, they have failed to score in three of their last four games away from the Liberty Stadium. Swans have yet to score a single first-half away goal this season as well and three of their four road goals have come in the final fifteen minutes of matches. To be fair their defence has been good. They haven’t shipped an away goal in the first half of any match and have conceded just three goals in five road games.
The last time that Wigan and Swansea met up was in the 2012/13 Premier League season. Swansea collected a win on both occasions that season, each of them by a one-goal margin. Swansea are actually on a three-match winning streak against the Latics and are unbeaten in four against them. Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings in all competitions.
We can only predict a low-scoring game cropping up in this one really. The Latics have done well on home soil and Wigan are a pretty solid defensive side. Still, in looking for a winner, we fancy Wigan to come up with a one-goal margin success.
30th September 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Wigan have made a pretty decent return to the second tier of English football and they picked a good three points at home in midweek. Their defence will probably come under some pressure on Friday night as they face up to Bristol City. The Robins were on a big five-match winning streak before losing at West Brom in midweek. Read our Wigan v Bristol City betting tips for more.
Bristol City 11/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
After picking up a good midweek win at home over Hull, that took Wigan’s overall home form this season to W3 D1 in the Championship. That’s not bad at all for a newly promoted side and it suggests that they can hold their own in this one. We like the look of the draw in the match outright for this one, but we are going to look at the 5/1 odds appeal* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) on the 1-1 correct score.
Wigan have scored at least two goals in three of their four home games this season which has been a great output from them and we feel that they can stick in there against a good Bristol City side. Will Grigg and Nick Powell are the joint-top-scorers for them this season with three goals each and the former is at 3/2 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).
Bristol City had put together a fantastic five-match winning streak, all without conceding a single goal. That form saw them shoot up the table. But it fell apart for them in midweek as they were taken out 4-2 at the Hawthorns against West Brom. So that will leave them to pick up the pieces a bit and sometimes it’s hard to bounce back immediately from setbacks like that. The one thing that it did at least do was continue their good scoring form. They have only failed to net in one league match this season.
Andreas Weimann has been in good scoring form for them lately but Famara Diedhiou was on the scoresheet for them in midweek and he is at 13/2 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Out on the road, this season Bristol City are now W2 D1 L2 and they have picked up a clean sheet in two of those. Considering they were on a five-match clean-sheet streak it was surprising that they collapsed so badly against the Baggies. Can they respond?
Bristol City banked back to back wins over Wigan the last time that they were together in the Championship. That was in the 2016/17 season. That is their only previous meetings in the Championship. There’s not a great deal of head to head history between them with Bristol City being 12-5 ahead with seven wins.
We are looking at the draw for our Wigan v Bristol City predictions and that is because the Latics have done so well on home soil this season. They will be taking on a City side who will be a little deflated after having had their winning streak snapped. Draw.
19th September 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The early season is looking like a bit of a bust for Stoke as three games into the new term they are yet to pick up a win. So it has been far from a smooth transition down from the top flight after their relegation last season. Wigan were promoted up to the second tier last season and they look to be finding their feet after a mixed bag of results. Read our betting tips for Stoke v Wigan.
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.)
The Potters are still seeking their first win of the new season. They opened in poor style going down 3-1 at Leeds and then they have produced back to back drawing games against Brentford and Preston. To be fair that’s not a particularly easy sequence of games in the context of the Championship. The alarming thing will be the amount of goals they are conceding and with no clean sheet in sight so far for them, both teams to score at bet365 is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.) and that leads our betting tips for Stoke v Wigan. This could end up being a really entertaining affair. Benik Afobe is their top scorer for the season with two goals to his name so far.
Afobe is the 5/1 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.) for the fixture. There should be chances for the Potters in this one against the Latics who have struggled a bit at the back. They had that rough time of things in the Premier League last season and having kept the bulk of their squad together from that, it is a surprise that they haven’t started stronger. Conceding an average of two goals per game though so far definitely points to some issues for Gary Rowett’s troops. We are going to lean on the game going over 2.5 goals at 21/10 which looks great value considering the defensive display of these two so far* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.).
The Latics are going to take some time to settle into life in the Championship after their well-deserved promotion from League One last season. They opened the season with a thrilling 3-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday, then they went out and lost to Aston Villa by a 3-2 scoreline. Over the weekend they played out a 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest. So the goals have certainly not been a problem for them and Nick Powell has tallied up three goals for the season so far in the Championship.
Powell is a 12/5 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.) for Wednesday’s trip to the Bet365 Stadium. The look as if they are going to continue to entertain and last season out on the road in League One the Latics earned a tremendous W16 D3 L4 record and averaged over two goals per game. The quality that they will face is higher this season obviously, but they don’t appear to have lost that scoring touch.
Wigan are the ones who are ahead in the recent head to head with a W2 D4 record going against the Potters. The last time they met was in the 2012/13 Premier League with both meetings ending in a 2-2 draw. Interestingly the last four drawn matches between the two clubs have all been 2-2 results. The two wins for Wigan in that sequence were both with a clean sheet.
Two sides who are probably going to concede unless things change. We can actually see a bit of value in Wigan pulling something out of the game in this one and because of the goals they are scoring a Wigan-Draw Double Chance is at 8/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.) and leads our Stoke v Wigan betting tips.
22nd August 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Royals need only a point to secure a playoff spot and there is still a chance that they can finish third as well. They get a comfortable looking game in this one against a desperate Wigan side who need to win their last two games to be in with any hope of managing to stay up this season. Reading are even money for the win, with the draw at 23/10 and Wigan at 11/4.

The Royals are still embroiled in a scrap with Sheffield Wednesday and Huddersfield for third place this season in the Championship. A home win here secures a play off spot at least for them and they will be favourites to collect it as well. Reading are on a three-match winning streak at home and they are unbeaten on home soil in their last nine league games now (W6 D3). They have been tremendously strong at home all season in the Championship with a W15 D5 L2 record having been posted. It may be worth having a crack at Reading to win to nil at Bet365 for a price of 12/5 which looks some value and under 2.5 goals in the game is probably the way to go as well at even money. The Royals banked a comfortable 3-0 win at Wigan earlier in the season and they should be comfortable back on home soil a well.
In the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market, Reading’s Yann Kermorgant is 13/8 outright favourite. Wigan have actually won their last three games out at Reading, but they are not in great shape at the moment. They have to win this game on Saturday or else they will be down. Even if they win and Birmingham manage a victory, then the Latics will be doomed. So it looks as if they have ran out of time but they have improved to a W2 D1 L1 record in their last four, the defeat being a narrow loss out at Champions-elect Brighton. However, they have lost their last three away games now and have gone W2 L6 in their last eight out on the road. So they can’t exactly be trusted on the road and they have lost 13 of their 22 away games this season. In the Bet365 correct score market, a Reading 1-0 win is in short at 7/1 and Wigan may well struggle to get close to the point they need, as Reading still have something to push hard for.
Reading Home Win: It’s always tricky when a desperate side comes to visits, but the Royals can handle themselves in this one. Wigan are just about down and out and are in poor away form. They are likely going to be picked off.
26th April 2017 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Seagulls continue their push for the Championship title this season but they have struggled in recent home meetings against Wigan, having won just one of their last three against them on the south coast. But the Latics are struggling to haul themselves out of the drop zone and the Seagulls will be looking to take full advantage of that on Monday. Brighton are 1/2 for the win, with the draw at 10/3, and Wigan are 6/1 for victory.

There has been a great record of W16 D3 L2 posted by Brighton this season in the Championship on home soil. So they are pretty rock solid on the south coast and they are on a three-match winning streak at home as well. The title is still within their grasp and earlier this season when they went to Wigan they landed themselves a 1-0 win. Brighton have won just one of their last three on home soil against the Latics (L2) though and this could be a tricky game for them. Actually, from the seven previous Championship meetings, the head to head is pretty even with Brighton going W3 D0 L4 against Wigan. The Seagulls have scored exactly one goal in each of their last five games against Wigan and a Brighton 1-0 correct score at Bet365 is a price of 5/1. There is a price of 6/5 on Brighton to win to nil and three of Brighton’s last four wins on home soil have been to nil. Tomer Hemed and Glenn Murray lead the way in the anytime goalscorer market at a price of 2/1 and 6/5 respectively.
Down at the other end of the table, Wigan are in big, big trouble and they need a bit of a miracle to be still playing in the Championship next season. Unfortunately for them, this game is part of a really tough run in because they will have to face Reading and Leeds in their final two games. Wigan are on a two-match losing streak away from home and have gone W1 L4 in their last five out on the road. It’s likely that hey are going to ship a goal in this one and they did lose 2-1 up at Newcastle recently so you can take that as an indicator. Both teams to score at Bet365 in this one is a price of 11/10. Wigan have actually won two of their last three visits to the Amex Stadium but one just looks out of reach for them in this fixture. Will Grigg is top league scorer for them with just the five goals this season and he is a quote of 3/1 in the anytime goalscorer market.
Brighton Home Win: The Seagulls should have enough to put a somewhat comfortable three points in the bag. The Latics have conceded a decent chunk of goals lately and that will end up hurting them.
15th April 2017 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Latics badly need a win in this one. They gave themselves a bit of a lifeline on the weekend with a home win over bottom side Rotherham but they need to follow that up with another three points as they are still seven points from safety. Barnsley snapped a winless streak that they were on over the weekend in beating Blackburn and will look to edge into the top half of the table with a victory. Wigan are 19/20 for the win, with the draw at 5/2 and Barnsley are at 14/5 for the three points.

The Latics snapped a four-match losing streak that they were on in the Championship as they beat bottom side Rotherham 3-2 on the weekend. They still have to come from behind twice in that one though, which shows how much they are struggling. They have now conceded at least two goals in each of their last four games played. This could be a tight game and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is trading at a price of 8/11. Earlier in the season when they two met there was a 0-0 draw and a repeat 0-0 correct score at William Hill is a price of 8/1. Wigan have gone W2 D3 L3 in their last eight home games in the Championship. So there’s been a little resiliency there, but still wholeheartedly unreliable. The last meeting between these two at the DW Stadium was in last season’s League One, where Barnsley rattled off a big 4-1 win. The Latics have pretty decent head to head form going with a W6 D2 L1 record against them in their last nine.
Barnsley took a win at Blackburn on the weekend which snapped an eight-match winless streak of form that they were on (D4 L4). So they haven’t been running hot and that win at Ewood Park on the weekend snapped a three-match losing streak that they were on away from home away well. Overall this season Barnsley have posted a W9 D2 L9 record away from home in the Championship. The Tykes have managed to score in all but one of their last eight games in the league now, and both teams to score at William Hill is trading at a price of 10/11. Overall they have won just two of their last thirteen league games but both of those wins were out on the road, but they have done a lot of losing and may struggle to get the return out of this Thursday night fixture.
Wigan Home Win: The Latics need to follow up what they pulled off on the weekend and they may be worth backing to do it. They have home form going against the Tykes and with Barnsley not exactly firing on all cylinders, back Wigan to edge this in a low scoring game.
11th April 2017 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Canaries are starting to surge again having won their last three league games on the bounce. They have pulled themselves back into play off contention and could move up into sixth place at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday with a win at Wigan on Tuesday night. The Latics are six points away from safety in the bottom three and suffered a home loss against Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend. Will they suffer the same fate as they take on Norwich? Norwich are 11/10 favourites to take the win, with the draw at 11/5 and Wigan at 2/1.

Wigan gave their survival hopes a decent boost with back to back wins recently, however, they slipped back to a defeat on the weekend to take a hit, that being a home loss against Sheffield Wednesday. Wigan are at home again for their next fixture and overall this season on home soil they have gone W3 D3 L8 in the league. Wigan have tanked badly on home soil lately in the Championship as they have gone W1 L7 in their last eight league home games. So there are clearly issues at both ends in this one and going forward in particular, they are lacking the bite to cover up defensive slips. Wigan have failed to score in seven of their last nine games at home in the Championship. 36% of their home games this season have gone under 2.5 goals and there is a price of 6/5 at Coral on under 2.5 goals for Tuesday night’s clash up. Each of the last four between these at Wigan have gone under the goal line and Norwich to win to nil is a 13/5 poke.
Wigan suffered a 2-1 loss at Carrow Road against Norwich earlier in the season and the last time that they hosted them, back in the 2014/15 season, the Latics lost 1-0. You can back Norwich to win by a one goal margin at Coral for a price of 11/4. All but one of the last four between Wigan and Norwich have been settled by a with two of those going in favour of the Latics. Wigan have actually only taken the two wins in their last nine games against Norwich now, so they don’t have great head to head form going. Will Grigg is Wigan’s top league scorer for them this season and he can be backed at 15/8 in the anytime goalscorer market while Yanic Wildschut is an 11/4 option. Despite their recent positives, Wigan are still in big trouble, six points adrift of safety and even home games don’t look easy for them at the moment by a long stretch.
Norwich are back on their feet after their slump and are back in the play off push. They have won their last three games in a row in the Championship and have gone W4 D1 L1, a marked improvement. Away from home in the league this season, Norwich have posted a W4 D3 L8 record which isn’t particularly great and it has let down the great work they have done at home. They did land a 1-0 win at Cardiff on the weekend and that victory snapped a long eight match winless streak out on her road in the Championship that Norwich were on. Norwich have scored exactly one goal in five of their last seven games away from home. A Norwich 1-0 correct score at Coral returns a price of 6/1 which looks some good value as that is what Sheffield Wednesday won at Wigan by on the weekend. In the anytime goalscorer market there’s a price of 15/8 on Cameron Jerome with Nelson Oliveira and Kyle Lafferty both at 21/10.
This is probably going to be a tight, low scoring affair and as Norwich haven’t been going all that well out on the road in particular it may be worth settling for a draw in the match outright in his one. The 1-1 correct score has some big appeal because the Latics have done a little bit better lately. It could be a close midweek scrap.
