Wigan vs Newcastle – Toon may find it difficult to win
Improvements have been seen in the form of Wigan of late and this has every chance of continuing as they entertain Newcastle in their next Premier League outing.
Wigan may have only won four of their 19 Premier League games so far this season, but an ongoing four-game unbeaten run has allowed them to escape the relegation places.
A victory over Newcastle would allow Roberto Mancini’s men to overtake their opponents in the league standings and Wigan’s betting odds are 6/4 to take the three points.
Further points that enhance their chances of securing the win are that Newcastle have lost all of their last three away games and that they have failed to beat Wigan in any of their last four meetings.
Newcastle are 9/5 to pick up the win, but perhaps the most likely is that the points are shared.
It is 23/10 that Wigan draw with Newcastle, which has been the outcome in two of their last three showdowns.
Wigan may have drawn 2-2 with Arsenal in their latest Premier League game and it is more than plausible that their encounter with Newcastle will end in the same manner.
Betting odds of 14/1 are offered on the 2-2 draw, with Wigan having secured this result twice in three games with Newcastle.
Meanwhile, both of Wigan’s last two Premier League home games have finished with this scoreline.
Alternatively, those expecting Wigan to triumph may want to opt for a 2-1 success, which is valued at 9/1.
Newcastle do carry a goal threat, primarily through Andy Carroll, and the 7/1 offered on them winning 1-0 could prove profitable.
