Newcastle United vs. Wigan Athletic Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Newcastle United can consolidate its place in the Premiership top four this weekend when it hosts Wigan at St. James’s Park.

Newcastle United vs. Wigan Athletic Trends Analysis

Newcastle and Wigan have been evenly matched opponents over recent seasons, with each side winning four of their last ten clashes, and two matches producing draws. Seven of the eight matches that have produced results have been won by the home team, with Newcastle securing the only away win in their most recent encounter.

Wigan’s last visit to St James’s Park produced a 2-2 draw.

The Magpies have won three and drawn two of their last five fixtures, with the last of these draws achieved against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The club is looking increasingly confident of turning over the big-name sides, and some superb performances up front may have something to do with this, with 12 goals scored in the last five games.

Defence needs some work, however, with the Newcastle backs letting in 8 goals during this run of fixtures.

Wigan travels to St James’s Park with five consecutive losses to show for its recent efforts. Currently lying 19th in the league, Wigan has won just one game this season.

The forwards have scored a below-par 4 goals in the club’s last five matches. However, it is defence that has ultimately let Wigan down, with 12 goals conceded in the same period.

Newcastle United vs. Wigan Athletic Betting Tips

While Newcastle’s defence may need some work, there’s no doubt that as a unit the Magpies are up to maintaining their unbeaten record at home this season.

With Wigan offering little threat up front and the Newcastle forwards in good form, the outcome of this match appears to be a foregone conclusion.

Our Newcastle United vs. Wigan Athletic betting tip is therefore to go with a back bet on over 2.75 goals being scored in a fixture which we expect the Magpies to dominate.
