Wigan v Tottenham Prediction 27th April 201325th April 2013 / lee
Wigan v Tottenham Betting Preview
The Latics really have to start sweating now after losing their last two in the Premier League and having fallen three points behind Aston Villa. They still have a game in hand over Aston Villa, but that doesn’t guarantee points as well. So the Latics really need to get a win on the board here but it is a tough looking match. While Wigan are trying to avoid relegation, Tottenham have their own agenda. They need points to try and outmuscle London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal into third place and take an automatic Champions League spot. That is the big goal for Andre Villas-Boas’s men and they could just be in enough form to get three valuable points here and sink Wigan into further trouble.

Wigan v Tottenham Recommended Bet:
Three points would be massive for the Latics in this one, unfortunately their form against Spurs isn’t all that great. In their fifteen previous Premier League encounters with Tottenham, Wigan have only won three and have suffered seven defeats. Surprisingly though, the Latics did take a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane against all the odds earlier in the season and if they could pull off a double it would be outstanding for Roberto Martinez’s men. Form has just been slipping away from Wigan after a run of three tough games on the road. They rescued a very late point at Loftus Road against QPR at the start of April, before going on to lose against Manchester City and West Ham.
They are still playing well and creating chances, but the lack of composure in finishing chances has cost them dearly. They could easily have beaten Man City for example but ended up getting punished. So Wigan once again have to dig deep. This time last season they went on a tremendous run of form to get themselves clear of the drop zone. It hasn’t been happening yet for them. They have the same amount of points as they did at this stage last term, winning four of their last five matches then. But Wigan are without a win in their last three, but they have won their last two home games. At the DW Stadium this season, Wigan have posted a W4 D4 L8 record but they have been a bit shy in front of goal.
They have returned goals at a rate of just 1.25 per game on home soil, but have conceded badly at a rate of exactly two per game. 75% of all Wigan’s home matches this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Wigan have only netted four goals in his last six matches, none in their last two so there are clear problems there. They have scored the highest percentage of second half goals in the Premier League this season. But the visiting Tottenham clearly have the better firepower and will carry the bigger threat, especially as they have a big target to play for themselves. Spurs have led in 13 away games this season, and only Manchester have done so more often.
Tottenham have rescued a bit of form, picking up two wins and a draw in their last three. The wins came against Swansea and Manchester City and the draw against Everton, so they are really digging in right now. Tottenham have goals in them and of course have Gareth Bale who will pose a massive threat to Wigan. Spurs have a great W9 D2 L5 record on the road this season and have scored at just under two goals per game. Hard to see them losing this while Wigan are looking fragile and a 2-0 Correct Score wager for Tottenham looks to be in the right range for value at odds of 9/1 with online bookmaker Sportingbet.
