Wigan Athletic welcome Bolton Wanderers to the DW Stadium for an EFL League One fixture this Saturday lunchtime. With leaders Rotherham United in EFL Trophy action, three points for the Latics will take them to the top of the League One table. However, the Trotters have picked up ten league wins since the turn of the year and will be no pushovers at the DW. Take a look at the latest odds and best tips.

Wigan Athletic Preview – Will the Latics move to the summit?

Wigan Athletic finished down in 20th place last season. However, the Latics have improved tenfold this term, currently sitting in second spot with an impressive 79 points to their name. Overall, Athletic have won 24, drawn seven and lost six of 37.

Wigan head into this one unbeaten in their past five, winning four and drawing one. Leam Richardson’s troops have been tough to beat in recent months, suffering just one league loss since early February.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 0935 GMT, Friday 1 April)

As we mentioned, with Rotherham not in league action this weekend, Wigan will move to the top of the League One table with a win. They will also still have a game in hand on the Millers. Saturday’s fixture is a huge one for the Wigan faithful.

Bolton Wanderers Preview – Can the Trotters upset the high flyers?

Bolton Wanderers have been one of the form teams of League One in 2022. Since the turn of the year, Ian Evatt’s men have won ten times in the league and have lost only three games since early January.

The play-offs may be a step too far this season, but Bolton could be a team to watch out for in the 2022-23 League One campaign. Evatt’s men have had a decent time in the third tier after securing promotion from EFL League Two last term.

Wigan have looked the real deal under Richardson this season, and we fancy them to take another big leap towards the Championship with three points on home soil on Saturday. The Tics have kept two clean sheets against Bolton already this season, and you can get 9/4 for Wigan to win to nil again.

Will Keane is currently joint third in the League One scorers’ charts with 19 goals to his name. The former Manchester United man is the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring in this one.
