Wigan vs Sunderland: Top Free Betting Tips

Wigan have had some serious struggles this season and we definitely expected more from them. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

We have two of the teams that have had the most goals in their games this season and we expect a huge scoreline in this match. Wigan and Sunderland have both had averages above 2.5 goals per game this season. Most of the games between them from recent years have also had more than 2.5 goals – four out of the last five, at least. These are two very familiar teams and we expect the same outcome.

Match Result Prediction: Sunderland to Win

This is a difficult game to predict because both teams are in curious forms and they are also quite familiar with each other and the games are always extremely close. But Sunderland have been a lot better this season overall and in definitely better form right now, so we expect them to win this game again. They won four of the last five encounters too.

Correct Score Predictions: 1:2 to Sunderland

The majority of the results between these two teams in recent years had the same scorelines – 1:2 or 2:1. And in almost every case – in favor of Sunderland. The visitors have been much better this season and we already explained that we expect them to beat Wigan once again. The hosts have a single win in the last five games overall.

Wigan vs Sunderland: Form, Recent Games, and News

Wigan Preview

It took a while but Wigan are finally back in the second tier of football in England but their chances to remain in the Championship are not the best. The team has had serious struggles since the start of the season and is currently sitting in the relegation zone again. They have one of the weaker attacks in the league but also the absolute worst defense in the league.

Sunderland Preview

Sunderland are another team that got promoted to the Championship at the start of this campaign and we definitely did not expect them to be this good this season. They are one win away from the playoff zone and their current form is incredible – the team has three wins in the last five games and just a single defeat. Their attack is one of the best so as long as they improve defensively, they have a chance.
