Wigan vs Carlisle: Top free betting tips
Our Wigan vs Carlisle prediction backs the hosts to steal a narrow win. Can the Latics pull further away from the danger zone?
The Latics made it 3 league defeats in a row on Boxing Day and they remain too close to the relegation zone to be relaxing. Wigan’s home form remains decent though with 6 wins at home secured in 11 matches (D1 L4). Carlisle collapsed into last place after going winless in the last 6 rounds (D3 L3). The Cumbrians remain awful on the road too, with just 1 point earned from their last 5 away matches.
Clean sheet prediction: Wigan clean sheet
We back the Latics to keep a clean sheet in this match. They managed to do that in 2 of their last 3 home league games. Our first Wigan vs Carlisle prediction is also backed by the fact that Carlisle failed to score in 3 of their last 5 away matches.
Correct outcome prediction: Wigan to win
Our next Wigan vs Carlisle prediction again favours the hosts. We think Wigan will find a way to win this match. The Latics collected 7 points, and 2 wins, from their last 4 home games.
At the same time, Carlisle had been poor on the road all season. The Cumbrians earned a single point from their last 5 away matches.
Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Wigan
Following the logic from our first two free betting tips, we give you our final Wigan vs Carlisle prediction. We back the Latics to win this game 1-0. This was the exact scoreline with which Carlisle lost 3 of their last 6 away matches.
