Luton Town vs Wigan Athletic: Top Free Betting Tips

Wigan Athletic will visit Kenilworth Road Stadium on Saturday to face Luton Town in Round 8 of the EFL Championship. Luton are are performing up to their established standards and Wigan will want to catch them, making this an exciting fixture for fans and neutrals alike.

Luton Town to Win

Nathan Jones will be pleased with Luton Town's recent run of two wins and a draw. With Latics struggling against Burnley and West Brom, they will further fancy their chances. However, Wigan won their last away fixture and will want to build on it. However, Luton has our confidence as they are the team in form and also won the last iteration of this H2H encounter at Kenilworth Road.

Over 2.5 Goals

At home, Luton Town averages 1.61 goals per game, and Wigan Athletic averages 1.94 goals when playing away (on average). Carlton Morris is Luton Town's top scorer with 2 goals and an assist while Will Keane's leads with a similar goal-scoring tally for Wigan Athletic. Both sides have seen just one Over 2.5 Goals affair this term and we expect this number to increase given their combined defensive issues in this meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Wigan Athletic and Luton Town haven't shown much defensive steel in recent matches. In fact, the Latics have been scored on in 5 of their last 6 games—and let opponents get 9 goals overall. These two clubs need to improve their defences, an attribute that will not change overnight, hence our expectation for goals at both ends of the pitch.

Luton Town vs Wigan Athletic: Team News and Match Preview

Luton Town

After a slow start, Luton Town are finally showing themselves. Their 2-1 win over Cardiff in midweek extended their unbeaten league run to three games (W2, D1). Interestingly, both of those victories came in South Wales, away from home. Manager Nathan Jones will be well aware that Luton's home form needs to improve quickly if they are to keep up with the early pace-setters.

Wigan Athletic

After two fruitless home games against two of the league's big-hitters, West Brom and Burnley, Wigan may be glad of a return to the road. After their 1-0 win over Birmingham on their last away outing, the Latics are on the brink of remaining unbeaten in their first three league road trips of a season for the first time since 2010/11. They will be confident as the Latics have won two of their last five away H2H games, losing just once in the process.
