Wigan have lost only one of their last six Barclays Premier League games against Liverpool after losing seven of the opening nine against them! Wigan in all competition have only lost one of the last six games, with Liverpool winning only two of the last six in all competition.
Best match odds:
I will find it difficult to believe people will back the Kop faithfully at under even money, even if their view is – “It’s only Wigan”
We all know Liverpool tend to perform their best in top of the table clashes, and complacency has been a problem for them in the past. No discredit for Wigan, that they have scored 13 goals in the last six games, so a little over 2 goals a game.
Six of the seven Premier League games between Wigan and Liverpool at the DW Stadium have gone under 2.5 goals. Wigan have conceded in all of their 13 home games in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool have drawn their last two away games in the Premier League, and could this be a third?
Looking at the betting markets, both teams to score is priced up at just 7/10, even despite 6 from the last seven going under 2.5 goals. Going against the grain, taking on Betway ‘s price of 13/10 both teams do not score is more appealing, using the statistic on under 2.5 goals.
Bookies go a generous time on goal minutes, on 145 minutes at 5/6, and will be our final bet of the day.
