​Shrewsbury vs Wigan: Top free betting tips

Our Shrewsbury vs Wigan prediction is for an open match which should suit the visitors better. Can the Latics score enough goals to triumph? 

Only 2 points split the teams in the current standings. Both Shrewsbury and Wigan sit too close to the relegation zone to feel comfortable but lately, both sides have shown some improved form.  

Correct outcome prediction: Wigan to win

Our first Shrewsbury vs Wigan prediction backs the Latics to win on the road. Wigan won all of the last 5 H2Hs and historically they’ve always dominated in this fixture. On top of that, Shrewsbury displays awful form in their last 4 home matches at the Croud Meadow – D1 L3. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Whatever happens, we expect an open match with both teams likely to be aggressively looking for goals. That’s why our next Shrewsbury vs Wigan prediction is that both sides will find the back of the net in this game. 

All of Wigan’s last 4 matches and 4 of Shrewsbury’s last 5 had BTTS outcomes. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Wigan

As tradition dictates our final Shrewsbury vs Wigan prediction is our take on the most likely correct score and for this game we back Wigan to triumph 2-1. This was the exact scoreline in favour of the Latics in 2 of the last 5 H2Hs. Also, Wigan scored exactly 2 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches vs Shrewsbury. 

To add to all that Shrewsbury’s last home defeat was a 1-2 loss. 

​How far will Wigan's fans travel to Shrewsbury?

The driving distance between the towns is only 70 miles (1112km) and it should take around 1 hour and 45 minutes to cover it. 

The short trip for this match makes us believe that a large number of Wigan’s supporters will decide to make the journey in their vehicles. This way they can explore other interesting parts of Shropshire as they go.
