​Wigan vs Bolton: Top free betting tips

Our Wigan vs Bolton prediction backs the hosts to edge this local derby. Can the Trotters avoid another defeat at the DW? 

Wigan seem to be stuck in mid-table and they are not under any serious pressure right now. Bolton on the other hand have it all to play for as they try to secure direct promotion. The nerves have gotten the better of Bolton lately – W1 D3 L2. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our first Wigan vs Bolton prediction backs both teams to score in this match. All of Bolton’s last 6 games had BTTS outcomes. So did, 4 of Wigan’s last 5 matches. 

​​Correct outcome prediction: Wigan to win

With extra caution, we decide to back the Latics for the win with our second Wigan vs Bolton prediction. This is mainly because Wigan have been near-perfect in the last 7 H2Hs – W6 D1. Also, Wigan won 3 of their last 4 home midweek matches and they’ve secured 9 of their 14 league wins this season on home turf. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Wigan

As tradition dictates our final Wigan vs Bolton prediction is our take on the potential correct score. We think Wigan could secure a 2-1 victory. 

Wigan scored exactly 2 goals in 5 of their last 7 wins at home and all of their last 5 triumphs were by a single goal. Also, 2 of Bolton’s last 4 league defeats were 1-2 losses. 

​How far will Bolton’s fans travel to Wigan?

The driving distance between the towns is only 16 miles (26km) and it should take around 30 minutes to make the journey. This is a great short trip for a midweek match and Bolton’s fans will travel in great numbers for sure. 

Maybe, all of those away supporters practising for a half marathon will consider this challenge with a roughly 2-hour break between runs. 

The Police in Wigan have issued a list of of pubs all Bolton fans are allowed to visit before and after the match. There will be strong police presence on the streets during Tuesday.
