Wigan Athletic will look to end a seven match losing streak when they host Fulham at the DW Stadium this weekend.
In recent seasons Wigan and Fulham have reached something of a deadlock, with six of their last ten matches ending in draws. Fulham took three wins during this period, while Wigan achieved a single draw.
Fulham has not beaten Wigan away once during this period, with the club’s last trip to the DW Stadium ending in a 1-1 draw.
Wigan is currently on the worst losing streak seen in the Premiership this season, with seven consecutive defeats. The club doesn’t seem to be able to win either at home or away, and is currently lurking alongside Blackburn at the foot of the Premiership table.
Wigan’s strikers are in poor shape, with just 3 goals scored in the club’s last five games. Defence has been equally bad, with 11 goals conceded in the same period.
Fulham has also been struggling to find for, having won just two of its last thirteen matches. Things were looking up for Fulham after a big 6-0 win over QPR, but the club went on to score three consecutive defeats, including an away loss to Krakow in the Europa League.
Fulham has scored 9 goals in its last five matches. This paints a prettier picture than the reality of the situation, with Fulham scoring just one goal in its past three matches. Defence has been loose, letting in 6 goals during the same period.
Wigan has a decent chance of knocking Fulham over on the weekend. Neither team is confident, and home support may be enough for Wigan to get the win.
However, history tells us that a draw is very likely in this match, and we’ll therefore be doing our betting in the lay markets.
Our Wigan Athletic vs. Fulham betting tip is therefore to take a lay bet on the visiting side at Betfair.
