Wigan Athletic vs Swansea City Prediction
The hosts failed to turn things around last week, following their 1-0 loss to Derby and managed no more than a 2-2 draw against Bristol City on the road. Paul Cook’s side are yet to hit the ground running this season and have picked up the win no more than three times in their last ten games.
Swansea, on the other hand, brought a three a match winless run to a halt in their most recent clash, after they got the better of Cardiff with a 1-0 victory at home. Surprisingly though, Swansea have been faring a lot better in their outings than in the comforts of their home.
At the moment, the visitors are the only side in the cluster that are yet to admit defeat on the road this season. It is also worth mentioning that the away side have not been at the losing end in any of their last three visits to this stadium either.
As such, Swansea are sizing up to be the favorites to secure the bragging rights in this one. However, Wigan are on a three-match winning streak on home soil at the moment. Moreover, Swansea have salvaged no more than a point in half of their last six trips on the road.
Taking into account that their previous head to head game here also saw both teams share the spoils, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing either a draw or Swansea to win.
Furthermore, Wigan have been keeping the scorecards modest in their last four games here. They have recorded a clean sheet in each of those games while scoring no more than a goal or two at the most.
With four out of their last five meetings with this foe here also witnessing fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, goals are likely to be hard to come by in this one.
