Wigan v Norwich Championship Preview, 14th April 12.00pm

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.

Wigan News and Form

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 News and Form

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.

Who will win – Wigan v Norwich Predictions

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.

Wigan v Norwich Championship Prediction & Betting Tips – 7th February 2017

Championship Betting

Wigan v Norwich Championship, 7th February 7.45pm

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 v Norwich Betting Tips

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.

Who will win – Wigan v Norwich Predictions

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.

Wigan

Wigan v Norwich Betting Preview

Perhaps not a match that really jumped of the weekend’s fixture list at you, but this is a big match with potential relegation consequences. Wigan are still looking for a way out of the drop zone and Roberto Martinez’s men do have a game in hand over everyone else. Norwich have steadied the ship after a string of poor results at the back end of last year, but are still finding wins hard to come by. Can Wigan produce vital points at home?

Wigan v Norwich Recommended Bet:

The Latics just aren’t a terrific home team. They scraped out a win against Newcastle in their last home match, just before the international break and that has been their only victory in the last eight at the DW Stadium. Wigan, although they have a game in hand over the clubs above them, are still three points away from safety. They have given themselves a bit of a lifeline with two wins in their last three games and they really need to keep pushing on. However they have conceded the first goal in 18 of their matches this season, and after conceding the first goal of the game, they have lost 15 of those 18. You can generally expect goals where Wigan are, as their nine Premier League matches since the turn of the new year have averaged 3.8 goals per game.

There have been just three home wins for Wigan this season, having scored at a rate of 1.27 goals per game. They have conceded over two goals per game though at the DW this season. The problems come from an open 3-4-3 formation, which gives Wigan plenty of possession in games, but they lack the punch up front and discipline at the back to really deliver on it. They always look likely to concede, even when they are controlling games. Wigan lost against Norwich at Carrow Road earlier in the season, and the Canaries are one of three Premier League teams that Wigan have never beaten. Slowly but surely, Norwich have edged their way to safety this season. They have developed a massive penchant for drawing games, taking ties in six of their last nine.

There has been one win in thirteen matches now for Norwich, and haven’t won in their last six away matches. The Canaries have only scored one goal in their last four away matches now, and they have recorded just one win on the road all season. The problem for Norwich is scoring goals, having netted just a dozen goals on the road all season, at an average of just 0.8 per game. They have conceded at a rate of over 2 goals per game on the road, so there could be hope for Wigan in this one. The Canaries have won just one of their last 17 away matches in the Premier League, so while Wigan can’t be trusted at short odds, Norwich don’t exactly exude winning confidence, so a draw may be on the cards.

It could be worth sticking with a 1-1 Correct Score draw, that has been the result in the last two meetings at Wigan, for a price of 7/1 with online bookmaker Bet Victor.

Barclay’s Premier League: Wigan V Norwich – Saturday, 13th August 2011

Premiership Betting

 

WIGAN ATHLETIC V NORWICH CITY

Date & Kick-Off: Saturday, 13th August 2011; 15:00 BST
Venue: DW Stadium

 

PREVIEW

Just how much emphasis can you place on experience? One team who have an abundance of the stuff are Wigan, set to embark on their seventh straight campaign in the top-flight; but their opponents this weekend arrive on a high following back-to-back promotions and the new boys in town may well cause a stir on the opening day of the 2011-2012 Barclay’s Premier League.

The DW Stadium has seen its fair share of upsets in recent times – both good and bad, and it better brace itself for another, as visiting Norwich are more than capable of putting Roberto Martinez’s uninspiring outfit in their place on Saturday.

Wigan starred into the relegation abyss for much of last season and yet, as they do time and time again, emerged unscathed – but rarely are they stronger for it. Since staying up on a dramatic final day, Wigan have lost their battle to retain inarguably the star attraction at the DW, Frenchman Charles N’Zogbia, after the winger completed his move to Aston Villa.

Now Martinez is short of a tried and proven match winner – as if they weren’t already in short supply. Fans are now anticipating – more like praying – for big seasons from the talented but hardly consistent Victor Moses, and last season’s top goalscorer, Hugo Rodallega.

Paul Lambert, meanwhile, has strengthened all areas of his team since guiding Norwich to automatic promotion in the Championship – with several games to spare, I may add. I can’t stay I’m impressed with what he’s bought so far, or that I rate Norwich’s chances of staying in the division; however, the Canaries have earned back-to-back promotions – comfortable ones at that – by playing on the front foot, scoring goals almost at a cantor, and while they will get found out sooner rather than later, their offensive brand of football may cause Wigan as many problems as Blackpool did on the opening day of last season, when the Tangerines attacked at every opportunity, basically took the game to Martinez’s side, and ended up scoring and winning with ease.

Plus, Wigan’s record at home on the opening day of the season is poor; they’ve lost on the opening day at the DW Stadium in each of the last two seasons, and on both occasions they failed to even score.  

Key Fact: Only one team netted fewer times in the Premier League last season than Wigan, who scored 4o goals from their 38 games; Norwich, meanwhile, were the most prolific team in the second tier in 2010-2011, scoring 83 goals in 46 matches.

BETTING – NEWS, ODDS & TIPS

Because they’ve served six seasons in the Premier League, and because they’ll have home advantage at the DW Stadium, Wigan have been installed as favourites in Saturday’s interesting clash between two teams who could struggle to stay abreast of the bottom-three this season.

A stalemate in Greater Manchester isn’t out of the question, especially as Wigan aren’t exactly handy in front of goal. It’s 12/5 the draw.

Norwich haven’t won any of their last 30 away matches in the Premier League, but then there last away top-flight fixture was some six-years ago. The Canaries won 10 of their 23 away games en route to promotion from the Championship and are 11/4 to come away with three valuable points.

Match Odds:

Wigan – 6/5 (2.20) Bet365
Draw – 12/5 (3.40) Boylesports
Norwich – 11/4 (3.75) VictorChandler

 

MY Prediction: Norwich to win @ 11/4 (3.75) with VictorChandler
Value Bet: Grant Holt First Goalscorer @ 8/1 (9.00) with Coral

I’m not really sure what to expect from Wigan. Perhaps they’ll have a point to prove on Saturday, that they aren’t a one-man team and that they’ll cope just fine without N’Zogbia. One thing I do know is this Norwich team have goals in them, and they won’t be shy in getting forward in numbers at the DW. Wes Hoolahan and Simeon Jackson will be a real handful on the wings, while Grant Holt is a proper goal-getter.
