Tip Reasoning

  • Wigan are unbeaten in their last 12 games.
  • Wigan come into this with fresh legs, having played their last game on 12/12.
  • Blackburn won just one of the last six H2H games.
  • Blackburn failed to win six of their last nine away games.

The magic of the FA Cup lives on through Wigan

When you think of FA Cup success stories, the 2012/13 Wigan success under Roberto Martinez springs to mind. They became the first ever team to win the FA Cup and be relegated in the same season and since then, they have knocked out six Premier League sides and taken Arsenal to penalties.

Considering the former, Wigan are notoriously ‘giant killers’ in this competition and they are one of the sides keeping the magic alive. Not only this, they are flying in League One as they seek a return to the second-tier and will come into this well rested due to their numerous COVID postponements.

A distraction for Blackburn

While Blackburn are unbeaten in nine straight games ahead of this, this game serves as a welcome distraction from their league campaign.

The visitors don’t have a great recent record when it comes to the FA Cup – they won just one of their last seven games within 90 minutes and were knocked out by the likes of Doncaster, Birmingham and Hull during that run, not to mention a 3-3 draw with Crewe.

Given the great price on a home win, I think it could be worth taking the Championship’s in-form side on with a draw no bet selection on Wigan. This gives us both insurance against a stalemate, while retaining a nice bit of value.
