Wigan vs Coventry prediction and top betting tips

Wigan Athletic are in a right old mess – again – it would seem. They're bottom of the league, paying wages late and losing games. Can they kickstart a dramatic survival bid as they host Coventry? Find out with our Wigan vs Coventry match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Wigan vs Coventry Prediction 1: Coventry to win

We kick off our predictions in what we feel is a fairly obvious manner – by backing Coventry to win this game. The reason we say ‘what we feel' to be an obvious pick is because the bookies have Coventry priced up at 11/7 (2.57), which is a huge price when you consider the stats. Wigan have the worst home record in the Championship, they've won just one of their last 10 games and have lost five of their last eight home matches winning just once. Coventry meanwhile are unbeaten in seven having won four of those games and arrive here after pumping Huddersfield 4-0 in their last away game.

Wigan vs Coventry Prediction 2: Both teams will score

The second of our football betting tips for this game comes from the both teams to score market and we are betting on the ‘no' outcome. Wigan have seen just two of their five games end with goals at both ends whilst each of their last two have featured a ‘nil' in the final score. Huddersfield meanwhile have seen two of their last three – and three of their last five – games end with at least one side failing to find the net. Furthermore, each of the last three head to head games have seen at least one team blank in front of goal.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the Wigan vs Coventry odds translate into probability ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Wigan odds: 11/6 (2.83) – 35%

Draw odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 31%

Coventry odds: 11/7 (2.57) – 39%

The bookies might have Coventry as favourites to win this game but, odds wise, they are leaving far too much on the table; that is amazing news for folks like us who want to find value. The risk takers – if you can call them that – probably will opt for a straight Coventry to win but as we've done above. The more cautious bettor though could opt for a draw/Coventry double chance and still get themselves a half respectable price.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Wigan vs Coventry

Wigan

Wigan are without Omar Rekik for this game due to suspension but aside from him and a couple of long term absentees they have a full squad to pick from. The issue is, that squad isn't delivering. Steven Caulker will likely start here whilst James McClean could come into the reckoning too.

Predicted lineup – Amos, Nyambe, Caulker, Hughes, McClean, Naylor, Power, Pearce, Keane, Lang, Fletcher

Coventry

Coventry might have half a dozen players ruled out through injury for this game but, notably, none of those players will prevent them naming an unchanged XI here, which is exactly what we believe they will do. The Sky Blues have a bit of momentum now and with Viktor Gyokeres and Matt Godden up top they'll feel they've got every chance of the top six – if they manage their games right.

Predicted lineup – Wilson, McNally, McFazdean, Doyle, Dabo, Eccles, Hamer, Bidwell, Howley, Godden, Gyokeres

Player to watch

When Coventry play there is always one player the opposition will pay special attention to – Viktor Gyokeres. We're no different and he's definitely the player to watch here. The Swede has eight goal contributions in his last six appearances including four in his last two!
