Norwich vs Wigan Athletic
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 29 September 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich)
Norwich have been in a great spell of form since mid-September and it seems it’s time to capitalize on it as they host Wigan for their Matchday 10 clash looking to break into the top 6 after a four-game winning streak across competitions.
Canaries have beaten Wycombe Wanderers in League Cup on Tuesday as Jordan Rhodes netted a hat-trick, extending their streak and building on wins over Middlesbrough, Reading, and Queens Park Rangers seen earlier. They’ve shown off in the attacking third and we now expect them in top shape once again!
Wigan should be no easy rivals to beat, though, and they have ideas of their own as they sit 5th placed after nine games played, with 16 points to their name. They’ve beaten Hull City and Bristol City in last two outings at home and although we’ve seen them struggle for similar success on the road, Paul Cook must be able to lift their spirits and now try to capitalize on such a streak at Carrow Road as well.
Norwich vs Wigan: Head-to-head
We’ve seen a thriller 2-2 draw in the sides’ last clash at the DW Stadium, back in February 2017.
Norwich have bagged a 2-1 win here earlier that season, which was their fourth win – with four draws and two losses in head-to-head clashes also on the records.
Latics failed to find the net in any of their last two trips away from home.
Norwich vs Wigan: Prediction
We will thus now back Norwich to build on their solid records of recent and beat the top 6 rivals to the points, sticking with a Home win at a good-looking 2.14. They will be very motivated to grab the top 6 spot seemingly up for the taking at this point and we expect a great challenge at Carrow Road.
However, we expect a very narrow contest and Wigan should be no easy nut to crack. We don’t see the visitors finding the net on the day either and with that in mind, we’ll now also back Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.00 – which has caught a lot of attention with high stakes and Wigan’s recent performances on the road.
Norwich vs Wigan: Bet Tips
Home win @ 13/10 (2.30)
Under 2.5 goals FT @ 11/10 (2.10).
