Under 2.5 Match Goals

Reason for tip

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in nine of the 15 games to feature Wigan Athletic this season, while Middlesbrough have seen fewer than three goals scored in five of their last seven matches. Both sides have each scored 15 Championship goals this season – fewer than all but five teams.

Wigan vs Middlesbrough Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Middlesbrough’s last seven games, with four of those containing a maximum of one goal.
  • Wigan Athletic have seen under 2.5 goals scored in nine of their 15 matches this season, in all competitions.
  • Wigan and Middlesbrough have each scored just 15 goals in 14 league games this term.

Managerless Boro need a win

Middlesbrough’s caretaker boss Leo Percovich led them to victory in his first game at the helm earlier this month, but has since overseen consecutive defeats to Millwall and Blackburn Rovers as normal service was resumed on Teeside. On Wednesday, Boro head to Wigan Athletic, looking to cut a six-point gap to the Latics and breathe new life into their poor campaign.

The visitors’ efforts have been hampered by a poor attacking record recently; five of their last seven games have contained under 2.5 goals, and they have failed to score in three of their last five matches. Only five second-tier outfits have scored fewer than Middlesbrough’s 15 league goals this campaign, but thankfully for Percovich ahead of Wednesday’s trip, Wigan Athletic are not one of them.

Indeed, Wigan have also hit the net just 15 times in their 14 league outings, and have scored a miserable five goals in seven home league games – fewer than all Championship sides but Preston North End and Coventry (the latter having played four fewer home matches). Under 2.5 goals have been scored in nine of the Latics’ 15 contests this term, including three of their last four home games, so punters shouldn’t expect too much excitement in midweek.

Under 2.5 goals likely at the DW

With Middlesbrough only winning three times this season and Wigan managing just one win from their seven home Championship games, punters are advised to ignore the results markets on Wednesday, with under 2.5 goals our main tip.

Meanwhile, both sides’ poor recent form may make a cagey 1-1 draw a decent correct score prediction.
