West Brom will want to end its nose-dive towards the relegation zone this weekend when it hosts Wigan Athletic at the Hawthorns.
These two clubs have met eight times in the last decade. Four of these matches went the way of Wigan while three went to West Bromwich Albion, and one match was drawn. Wigan achieved only one away win during this period.
Wigan’s last trip to the Hawthorns produced the only draw recorded between these sides, with the match ending 2-2.
West Brom are struggling for form coming into this fixture, with three losses, a draw and a single win against lowly Bolton to show for their last five matches.
WBA have put away just 4 goals in their last five matches. Meanwhile their defence has been leaking goals, with 10 goals conceded during the same period.
Wigan come into this match stationed bottom of the Premiership and on the back of a 4-0 thumping from Arsenal. The club has won one, lost three and drawn one of its last five matches.
Wigan have scored 6 goals in their last five matches, and have been held scoreless in two of these, with the strikers struggling to find consistent form. Defence has put huge pressure on the side, letting in 12 goals during this period.
Two malfunctioning defences make for an interesting match. While neither side has set the park alight in recent weeks, both will have their fair share of goalscoring opportunities in this match.
West Brom is obviously the favourite to win this fixture, and back bets on the home side aren’t a bad idea – however, Wigan has managed an away win in recent weeks and has a good history against West Brom to draw inspiration from.
Our West Brom vs Wigan betting tip is that both these sides will score on Saturday, and that the game will produce 3 or more goals. We’ll be putting our money on over 2.75 goals being scored in this fixture.
