Draw no Bet – Accrington

Here we pick Accrington in the Draw no Bet market because they are the favorite of the two, and the head-to-head statistics show us that there haven't previously been draws between these two sides.

Both squads are capable of finding the net, so it’s only a matter of whether they can keep a clean sheet.

Accrington Stanley vs Wigan: Two bottom-half teams – any reason for optimism?

Sitting in the middle of the table it seems like Accrington Stanley has nothing to fight for in this campaign. However, this is not true, as Accy has a shot at reaching the top 6 and qualifying for the play-offs. With a gap of just 5 points, Stanley needs a few final efforts to break into the top 6.

On the other hand, Wigan is facing a completely different fight. Sitting a single point away from the relegation zone, and just 3 points from the bottom of the table, the Tics need the three points as much as Accrington does. This will be a great fight between the two, which may as well shape both the relegation and the promotion zones.

Stanley will be looking to put an end to a 3-game losing streak, while Wigan has had 2 wins and a draw in their last 3 games. The fixture can go either way, however, Accrington has the upper-hand and the greater shot at victory.
