​Northampton vs Wigan: Top free betting tips

Our Northampton vs Wigan prediction backs the Cobblers to continue their impressive run of form at home with another win. Can the Latics find a way to be solid defensively for once on their travels?

Northampton climbed into the top 10 after going on a strong run of form at home over the last 6 weeks. The Cobblers won 5 of their last 6 home matches. Wigan remain in the bottom half of the table but the mood is not bad after earning 4 points from their last 2 league matches. 

​Total goals prediction: Odd

Our first Northampton vs Wigan prediction explores the Goals Market. We think there will be an odd amount of total goals in this match. This was the case in 8 of the last 10 H2Hs. 

Also, all of Northampton’s last 4 games had an odd amount of goals in them. 

​​Correct outcome prediction: Northampton to win

Our second Northampton vs Wigan prediction backs the Cobblers to claim all 3 points. Northampton won 5 of their last 6 home matches. At the same time, Wigan had been poor on the road all season. The Latics won just 1 of their 10 away league games so far (D3 L6). 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Northampton

With our final Northampton vs Wigan prediction we back the hosts again. We think Northampton could win this match 2-1. This was the exact result in 2 of the last 4 rounds in favour of the Cobblers. Also, 3 of Wigan’s last 8 defeats were with that 1-2 scoreline.

​How far will Wigan’s fans travel to Northampton?

This Saturday promises freezing temperatures, snow, ice, rain and guaranteed travel disruptions. Such a ‘warming’ forecast is unlikely to put off the avid Latics fans who will be determined to make this journey. Still, we advise them to find all these forgotten Wigan scarfs and hats for this particular trip. 

The estimated travel time, without any unforeseen delays, is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The one-way distance that needs to be covered is 140 miles (225km).
