Tip Reasoning

  • Bolton have lost three of their last five League One matches.
  • Wigan have won three of their four League One away games this season.
  • Wigan have taken 22 points from the last 27 on offer in League One.

Latch on to in-form Latics

No team in League One has better form than Wigan Athletic so it seems a little strange that they are the outsiders for Saturday’s derby clash with Bolton Wanderers. The Latics have won their last three away league games and overcame the Trotters in the EFL Cup earlier this season, albeit on penalties after a 0-0 draw at home.

The oddsmakers clearly feel that Bolton are a different side on their own patch, where they have won two, drawn two and lost one so far this season. The 2-1 win over second-bottom Shrewsbury earlier this month looks to have been a little too close for comfort and that followed a 2-0 home reverse to a Rotherham side currently below Wigan in the table.

Wanderers have become sporadic scorers

Wanderers will be aiming to return to winning ways after last weekend’s 1-0 loss on the road to Sheffield Wednesday – the fifth time in eight league games that they failed to register a goal. That run might continue when up against a superb Wigan defence that has kept five clean sheets in League One and only conceded seven goals in ten games this season.

The majority of those clean sheets, however, have come at the DW Stadium, so we will avoid the ‘win to nil’ bet on this occasion and just recommend the visitors to come away with the derby points.

The 2-1 correct score prediction centres around Wigan having averaged over two goals per game on their travels while conceding just three in their first four away-days.
