Sunderland vs. Wigan Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Bottom of the log Wigan travels to the Stadium of Light on Saturday to take on struggling Sunderland in a Premiership basement fixture.

Sunderland vs. Wigan Trends Analysis

Wigan has won five of its last ten matches against Sunderland, while Sunderland has taken just two wins and three matches have gone to a draw. Wigan has had good results at the Stadium of Light, taking three away wins during this period.

However, Wigan’s most recent visit to Sunderland was not a success, as the visitors went down 4-3.

Sunderland’s struggling to build momentum as the Premiership season approaches the half way mark. The club has won just one of its last five matches, losing two and drawing two. In fairness, both of Sunderland’s losses were incurred in away games to top clubs – Manchester United and Arsenal.

Sunderland has scored 5 goals in its last five matches. Defence has tried manfully to keep up, maintaining two clean sheets and letting in 5 goals during the same period – efforts that have been just good enough to maintain parity.

Wigan, meanwhile, is in a tailspin. The club has lost four of its last five matches, and its best result over recent weeks was achieved last weekend when it drew 3-3 at home with its bottom of he log rival, Blackburn.

Wigan has scored only 5 goals in its last five matches. Defence hasn’t been nearly good enough to make up for flat attack, letting in 12 goals during the same period.

Sunderland vs. Wigan Betting Tips

Sunderland has a golden opportunity to get a win under its belt in this match. While its lackluster attack looks to have nothing over Wigan’s own uninspired forwards. However, Sunderland’s defence is streets ahead of Wigan’s.

This suggests that Wigan is going to have a tough time cracking Sunderland on Saturday, whereas even Sunderland’s struggling strikers should be able to find a way past a threadbare Wigan defence. Throw in home advantage for Sunderland and you have all the ingredients for a win for the home team.

Our Sunderland vs Wigan betting tip is therefore to go with a straight back bet on the home team at the best odds you can find.
