Preston vs Wigan: Top Free Betting Tips

Preston North End and Wigan Athletic are set to face each other in the upcoming fixture in EFL Championship on Saturday, 25 February. Both teams come into this game after ending the recent consecutive league games in draws.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

The Lilywhites will be optimistic to create scoring chances in this game as they have hit the target in four of the last five league matches at home. The hosts have also been on the scoring side in all of the recent five hosting duels against Wigan Athletic. The Latics have followed a winless pattern in the recent visits but they have also rattled the net in four of the last five away outings. Preston kept several clean sheets in the recent H2Hs against the Tics but they have allowed goals in all of the latest home games. Hence we can expect a BTTS pattern for this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Preston North End have rattled the net only twice in the last five outings and managed an average of less than one goal per game in the previous five league home attempts as well. Wigan Athletic have also been quite the same in this respect by scoring only two goals in the previous five attempts in Championship. The Latics have also held a favourable defence in that course, allowing only two goals. So we expect a low-scoring pattern for this game that will be a change of trend to the recent H2Hs of these teams.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Preston North End has managed to hit the target once per game in three of their recent five home matches in the league. Meanwhile, Wigan Athletic has been solid defensively, conceding just one goal in three of their last five away games and even keeping a clean sheet. However, the Latics have struggled to score more than one goal in their latest away outings, finding the net only once per game in four of their last five away matches. Given these circumstances, we anticipate a closely fought encounter, with the teams ultimately settling for a draw and finishing the match with a 1-1 scoreline.

Preston vs Wigan: Form, Recent Games, and News

Preston North End Preview

The Lilywhites visited Hull City in the last game and dropped the points with a goalless draw. Preston North End have earned only two points in the last four league games, slipping to the fourteenth position on the points table. The manager Ryan Lowe will have zero players on the injury list ahead of this game.

Wigan Athletic Preview

The Latics also succeeded to clip Norwich City to a 0-0 draw at home in the last game. But the team has registered a total of only seven victories and ten draws in the 32 league attempts and are buried at the last of the table. Jason Kerr and Callum Lang will be sidelined in this game due to injury concerns.
