Blackpool vs Wigan: Top Free Betting Tips

The clubs at the base of the points table, Blackpool and Wigan Athletic are set to face each other in an EFL Championship fixture. The teams are scheduled to make an appearance in Bloomfield Road on Saturday, 15 April. Both clubs have got the back of consecutive defeats in the league before this fixture.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Blackpool has managed an average of only one goal per game in the last four league outings. On the other hand, Wigan Athletics are even worse and hit the back of the net only twice in the same duration. Moreover, the Latics have managed only one goal in the same number of fixtures away from DW Stadium. Three of the previous four meetings between these teams have ended with Under 2.5 Goals. Following the current numbers, we are convinced to predict another low-scoring total between these clubs on Saturday.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

Despite the recent consecutive defeats, Blackpool has not missed the back of the net in the last five league affairs. But Wigan Athletic have struggled in this aspect and failed to put the ball into the net in three of the last four road fixtures. On the other hand, Blackpool has also had three clean sheets in the last six games at Bloomfield Road, including against top-of-the-table Burnley. Moreover, the Seasiders have restricted the Latics from scoring in three of the last four H2H meetings. Based on the given statistics, we are in the position to expect Blackpool to be the only side to score in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Blackpool

Since their 6-1 win against QPR, Blackpool has only scored one goal per game in their last four league matches. Wigan Athletic have also conceded just one goal in three of the previous four games away from DW Stadium. Moreover, the Seasiders have also managed to score only once in three of the recent five meetings with Latics. Therefore, we predict Blackpool to find a victory in this game with a narrow lead of 1-0 at the end of the ninety minutes.

Blackpool vs Wigan: Form, Recent Games, and News

Blackpool Preview

Despite a 1-0 lead until 45 minutes, the Seasiders couldn’t avoid their fourth successive league defeat previously against Luton Town. A brace of Pelly Ruddock and a gaol from Carlton Morris helped the Hatters get a 3-1 victory. The team’s readiness will also be affected by the absence of Keshi Anderson and Tom Trybull due to injuries.

Players to Watch: Callum Connolly (Blackpool)

Blackpool will have a tough match here and they need to do their best to win it. They are a very aggressive side that is not affraid to get booked. One player, in particular, has been extremely effective in his defense – Callum Connolly. The defender has received 11 yellow cards and one red card in 39 games. With two important defenders out of this match, he will have a lot of work.

Wigan Preview

The early two goals from Joel Piroe fired Swansea City to earn a 0-2 win over Wigan Athletic in the last game. Getting two successive defeats, the Latics need eight points to exit the relegation zone, currently sitting at the foot of the points table. Wigan will have to fight for crucial three points without Jason Kerr and Jordan Cousins.

Players to Watch: Will Keane (Wigan)

Wigan have not been very effective in attack this season and there is only one player that stands out – Will Keane. The striker has 10 goals in the Championship this season in 39 games. It may not be a lot but given that the team has the 2nd weakest attack in the league, he literally has 1/3 of their goals.
