Wigan vs Birmingham: Top Free Betting Tips

Wigan Athletic head into Round 35 with a visit from Birmingham City at the DW Stadium. The Latics at the foot of the points table with the Blues four places above them.

Match Result Prediction: Birmingham to Win

Wigan Athletic have only won three matches at home all season and will want to improve this tally as an out-of-form Birmingham City visits them. Despite their position on the points table and home form, the Latics have the better recent results with three draws and a win from their last five outings. They will feel confident against the Blues, against whom they are unbeaten in their last four duels, winning thrice and drawing once.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

Neither Wigan nor Birmingham can be relied upon to score. The hosts have scored a paltry three goals in their last five outings with the Blues' tally being one better. To the Latics' credit, they have only conceded three goals while City has shipped in eight. With both sides averaging less than a goal recently, we do not expect to see goals at both ends of the pitch.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Wigan

Twelve of Birmingham's 16 defeats have come with a margin of one goal. With both sides struggling to score goals regularly, this match will be decided by a similar margin. Wigan has impressed at the back with just three goals conceded in their last five outings and should force the issue, profiting from the Blues' porous backline.

Wigan vs Birmingham: Form, Recent Games, and News

Wigan Athletic Preview

The DW Stadium faithful will want a positive result from the Latics and they will be confident in seeing such an outcome based on their recent defensive output. While they have kept rivals at bay, their attacking unit has left a lot to be desired. Against Birmingham, the margins play in their favour and they should pounce on the opportunity to give themselves a respite. The win can prove to be useful in their late push for safety and with one match in hand over their rivals, they have an outside chance of realizing it.

Birmingham City Preview

Manager John Eustace has admitted to their failings and the resulting poor environment in the dressing room. They have lost four matches on the trot and have put themselves in danger of a calamitous relegation dogfight. Birmingham sits just two places away from the dropzone and their seven-point buffer zone looks incredibly thin given their recent performances. In Wigan, they have a rival with one of the worst home records in the 2022/23 Championship campaign but will have to overcome their own middling results on the road.
