Wigan vs Derby: Top free betting tips
Can the Rams continue their unbeaten run? Our Wigan vs Derby prediction is for a close game that the confident Rams will edge.
Back-to-back league defeats against struggling teams leave the Latics only a few places above the relegation zone. Wigan continue to be very unpredictable in their form and they keep following periods of 4-5 good results with a series of 4-5 winless matches. Derby on the other hand are firmly in the race for promotion and full of confidence after a near-perfect run of results in their last 7 games (W6 D1).
Correct outcome prediction: Derby to win
With our first Wigan vs Derby prediction we back the visitors to record yet another win. The Rams have dominated this fixture for years and they won 5 of the last 8 H2Hs (D2 L1). Also, Wigan come into this game after back-to-back league defeats.
Goalscorer prediction: Collins to score anytime
Derby’s leading goalscorer this season James Collins has 8 league goals already. He is in great form lately, scoring 7 goals in Derby’s last 9 matches. Also, Collins is certain to start with the other 2 main strikers of the team missing injured right now. All that makes us back Collins to score with our second Wigan vs Derby prediction.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Derby
Our final Wigan vs Derby prediction as usual is the correct score. We think Derby could edge this match 2-1. Derby secured exactly 2-1 victories in 3 of their last 8 triumphs vs Wigan. Also, 2 of Wigan’s last 4 home league defeats were with 1-2 scorelines.
