Wigan Preview – Tall order for the Latics

Wigan are third from bottom in League One after the weekend’s round of action in which they lost.

That was a defeat against Oxford and it leaves them in the relegation zone by goal difference.

They have plenty to play for still but with four losses in their last five games, they are struggling.

In the match outright for football betting the victory for Wigan is at 4/1* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT February 16th, 2021).

Wigan’s home record for the season stands at a poor W2 D4 L7.

They have lost their last two home fixtures against Blackpool and Wimbledon, conceding a total of eight goals in those two games.

Wigan have now conceded at least three goals in four of their last eight league fixtures.

They are averaging just about a goal per game at home, but there are bigger problems at the back for them.

Wigan have conceded at an average of 2 goals per home fixture.

So this does appear to be a tall order for them in what is the first meeting between themselves and Hull this season.

Of the goals that they have come up with on home turf, 64% of them have been netted in the second half of games.

As it stands only Rochdale and Wimbledon have worse home records in the league than Wigan do.

Only three teams have scored fewer goals as well.


Hull Preview – Big chance for Hull to recover some form

Hull are just about clinging on to the second spot in the League Two standings at the moment.

However, their form has been going backwards recently with only a W1 D1 L3 record in their last five.

There have been some major setbacks there and now the Tigers have failed to score in their last three and in four of their last five.

Out on their league travels this season the Tigers have taken a W7 D2 L5 record.

But it has been back to back road defeats at Accrington and Burton for them, failing to score in either defat.

So can they get it back together in this one in midweek?

In the match outright for League Two football betting, a win for Hull is at 7/10* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT February 16th, 2021).

Interestingly as well here, Hull have lost away from home this season against two of the current bottom four (Swindon and Burton).

But they have been ticking along at an average of 1.86 goals per away game this season.

Also, all seven of their away success in the campaign have happened by a margin of at least two goals.

Only twice have they been trailing at the break away from home, so the half time draw at 11/10 piques interest* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT February 16th, 2021).

The statistics point to the win for Hull when you look at their overall away form this season.

But question marks are creeping in because of their recent tip in form.


Wigan vs Hull Betting Advice

This is now a hard one to call because of Hull having fallen out of form. The goals have totally dried up for them.

A recent defeat at the relegation-threatened Burton cannot be ignored.

Because of that, it is the draw in the match outright that we think is just worth playing for at 14/5* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT February 16th, 2021).


Key Facts – Wigan vs Hull Betting Tip

  • Wigan have lost four of their last five league fixtures
  • Wigan have conceded an average of two goals per home game this season
  • Hull have failed to score in 4 of their last 5 league games

Wigan are just not carrying the kind of form that suggests they are going to pull out all three points.

But with just two defeats in their last six league games on home turf, they may stick in there.

We may have a play at the 1-1 correct score at 6/1* (odds recorded 04:35 GMT February 16th, 2021).
