Watford vs Wigan: Top Free Betting Tips

Wigan Athletic have raised a long winless pattern in EFL Championship and play the next game against Watford on Saturday, 18 March. The Golden Boys appear in this game after ending their winless sequence with a victory over Birmingham.

Match Result Prediction: Watford to Win

Watford has found a mix of two defeats, two victories and a draw in the previous five outings. However, the hosts are undefeated in the previous six attempts at home, winning three of them. On the other hand, Wigan Athletic have been desperate in the away outings as they are winless in visiting attempts since the mid of October. The Latics have also won the last three away meetings in a row. Watford have won the previous three duels with the Tics and we expect them to repeat the pattern and take three points in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five meetings of these teams at the home of Watford have ended with low-scoring patterns and we hope for the same in this game. The Hornets have found the back of the net eight times in the last five meetings. However, Wigan Athletic have hit the target only twice in the previous five games away from home. The Golden Boys have also made successive clean sheets at home before this duel.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Watford

The Golden Boys have hit the target multiple times in three of the previous six duels at home. On the contrary, Wigan Athletic have also conceded six goals in the previous three away outings. But offensively, the Latics have failed to find the target in three of the recent five visits. The Hornets have also held a strong defence previously with two clean sheets in the last three games, allowing only one goal. Therefore, we predict a 2-0 lead for the Golden Boys in this duel.
