Wigan will be looking for points towards survival in this Easter Monday fixture in League One.

The Latics are in the drop zone, but only two points from safety as it stands. So they have a lot to play for still.

But this is a tough home fixture against the promotion-chasing Portsmouth who will be looking to strengthen their position in the top six.

Wigan Preview – Can the Latics get an important home win?

Wigan have gone four matches now in League One without a victory.

They are in the drop zone, but still, have plenty to play for. Getting their home from going would be a massive boost.

Wigan have struggled on home soil, taking only a W3 D5 L10 record this season.

But they have avoided defeat in their last two home fixtures, the latter being a good 0-0 draw against Ipswich.

This is a tougher game for them.

Wigan are 7/2 underdogs in the match outright in League One betting* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

Wigan have produced an average of a goal per home game this season.

Their bigger issues have been at the back. The Latics have conceded at an average of almost two goals per game.

Wigan’s record at home against teams in the top eight is dreadful as well.

They have lost all six such fixtures, failing to score in four of those.

So they are going to have to find a big performance to defy Monday’s underdog tag.

Our betting prediction:
Portsmouth -1 Asian Handicap

Bet at William Hill

(odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021)


Wigan have been trailing at the halftime break in 9 of their 18 home fixtures this season.

Therefore, a Portsmouth/Portsmouth HT/FT betting option could be worth looking at.

That is a quote of 15/8* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

Earlier this season Wigan did get a surprise success over Pompey, scoring a 2-1 away win.

How crucial it could be for their survival if they could complete the season double against them.

Rochdale are the only side in the division with a worse home record than that of Wigan’s.

The Latics have the third-worst defensive record in the third tier.


Portsmouth Preview – Pompey to continue good form?

It has been three straight wins for Portsmouth in League One. On Monday they took a 2-01 home win over Rochdale.

Their last three league wins have all been by a 2-1 scoreline.

In the match outright for League One betting, the win for Portsmouth is at 4/5* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

The away record that Pompey have earned this season is W10 D2 L5.

Their recent win at Shrewsbury snapped a three-match losing streak on their travels.

So they will be hoping that the ship has been steadied.

Portsmouth are in the play-off spots as it stands but it’s a tight race and little margin for error.

On their league travels, Pompey have averaged 1.65 goals per away game.

But the strange thing about their away record is that they have taken one point from three away games played against teams 19th or lower.

So that has been some crucial dropped points.

Of the ten road wins that they have taken, seven have been by a two-goal margin.

That has to be a realistic target in this one.

A Portsmouth -1 Asian Handicap is at 7/5* (odds recorded 023:41 GMT, April 4th 2021).

Portsmouth have drawn their last two trips to Wigan but we fancy them to go all the way and take three points on Monday.

Of the away goals that they have conceded, 63% of them have been in the first half of fixtures.

So if they can handle themselves until half time, that should strengthen their position in the game.

Home and away Pompey haven’t taken a clean sheet in eight. But how much is the limited attack of Wigan likely to hurt them?

Going into the game, only four teams have produced better away records than Pompey.

All four of those have played at least a game more than they have on the road.


Wigan vs Portsmouth Betting Advice

We are going straight for the away win. The poor home form of Wigan drives us straight there.

We do think that they come away with a reasonable comfortable victory in this game.
