Wigan vs Huddersfield Prediction

Wigan managed to bring their two-match losing streak to a brief pause last week after they managed to hold West Brom to a 1-1 draw at home. The hosts broke the deadlock five minutes post the restart in that latter matchup. However, their counterparts soon replied through Charlie Austin, thereby ensuring that both teams shared the spoils.

With just one win in their last ten games, the home side are deservedly dwelling in the relegation zone and are just four points shy of hitting rock bottom as well.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield picked up their first win in six games by taking down Charlton in their most recent matchup on the road. The visitors were much the better side in that clash, and recorded five shots on target, as opposed to their foes who managed none.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests have stumbled just twice in their last six outings, both of which, to their defense, were against sides that are currently dwelling in the top six.

In sharp contrast, the hosts are winless in their past four fixtures here, and have garnered no more than one point from a possible twelve in the process. Taking into account that the visitors have also been securing the bragging rights in their last two trips here on the trot, Wigan’s chances of a win are certainly looking bleak.

However, the hosts did salvage a point in their last game here. That too, against the current table-toppers.

As such, the safest punt in this one would have to be a double chance.

Furthermore, six of the last nine outings for Huddersfield have witnessed fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. Considering that four of their previous five h2h encounters here have also been low scoring affairs, goals are most likely to be hard to come by this weekend.
