Sheffield Utd vs Wigan: Top Free Betting Tips

Following a victory against Queens Park Rangers, Wigan Athletic have a challenge of in-form Sheffield United on Friday, 7 April. The Blades will be preparing to enter Bramall Lane after three consecutive games in Championship and FA Cup.

Match Result Prediction: Sheffield Utd to Win

Wigan Athletic ended their winless streak previously at DW Stadium against QPR but they need more discipline in their approach to the away fixture. The Latics are without a victory away from home since the mid of October 2022. On the other hand, Sheffield United enter this game after four victories in the last five outings of two different competitions. The Blades have won the last three games against Wigan in a row and we see them strong enough to continue the sequence in this fixture.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

The previous fixture this season between these teams featured a BTTS pattern. However, Sheffield was able to keep a clean sheet in the last H2H with Wigan at Bramall Lane. Wigan Athletic have failed to find the back of the net in two of the previous three games away from DW Stadium. On the other hand, the Blades looked prepared defensively after getting clean sheets against Watford and Tottenham in the previous four games at Bramall Lane. Therefore, we predict this game to conclude with only the home side on the score sheet.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Sheffield Utd

Sheffield United have scored six goals in the last three games and smashed nine goals in the same number of H2Hs against Wigan. Wigan, on the other hand, has conceded seven goals in the last four away adventures, leaking twice or more in two of them. The Blades were able to score three goals against Blackburn Rovers at Bramall Stadium. Following the given statistics, we see them in the position to earn a 2-0 lead on Friday.

Sheffield Utd vs Wigan: Form, Recent Games, and News

Sheffield Utd Preview

Scoring the only goal for Sheffield, 20-year-old James McAtee provided the team with a 0-1 lead against Norwich City in the last game. The Blades are second in the standings and the recent draw game of Burnley against Sunderland has reduced the gap to the top spot to 11 points. However, the team's medical preparations have been less than ideal, with three players set to miss the game due to injuries.

Sheffield United is currently sitting in a strong position with respect to their promotion chances. They are second on the table with a game in hand and six points over third-placed Middlesbrough. They come into the game against Wigan with confidence after winning their last two league games, but they have not won three successive league outings in 2023. United will have one eye on their upcoming match against leaders Burnley whom they play on Easter Monday. James McAtee has been in good form for Sheffield United, scoring the decisive goal in their last game, and he will be one of their players to watch against Wigan.

Wigan Preview

After a wait of eight winless games, The Latics earned all three points in the last game with a 1-0 lead against Queens Park Rangers. Midfielder Max Power scored an early penalty in the sixth minute of the game and notched his first goal of the season. Jason Kerr and Jordan Cousins will not be in action at Bramall Lane on Friday.

Wigan position was made difficult due to their efforts away from the pitch. Sitting five points from safety with a game in hand, they have been deducted three points due to financial breaches. They managed to secure a morale-boosting 1-0 win against QPR in their last game, but have not won back-to-back Championship games since September and are heading towards a likely relegation. Wigan's survival bid has been further hampered by a 14-match winless away league run, and they face a tough challenge against the Blades, who are fighting for promotion.
