Here we bring you Championship predictions for Wigan vs Huddersfield with the game due to take place on February 11th.

Wigan vs Huddersfield: Our top betting predictions

Huddersfield twice gave up a lead against Blackpool in the week that ultimately cost them two points in their quest to pull away from safety and, as a result, the club pulled the trigger on Mark Fotheringham. Will they get a bounce in the immediate aftermath or will fellow strugglers Wigan be able to muzzle the Terriers further? Find out with our Wigan vs Huddersfield match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Huddersfield to win

We begin our predictions for this game by backing Huddersfield to win. In general terms, neither side has been in very good form hence the reason both are confined to the Championship relegation zone as we speak. When you start to drill into the respective formbook though it is clearly Huddersfield that hold the edge. Wigan have lost five home games on the spin whilst Huddersfield have actually been okay on the road; their last five away games have seen them lose just twice whilst collecting five points. That isn't amazing form but it's better than Wigan's! Bring in the fresh managerial sacking and the Huddersfield players will be pushing that percent or two harder and that'll make the difference.

A low scoring match

Our next prediction for this match comes from the total goals market and we don't see this being a brilliant game for the neutral fan. We are betting on under 2.5 goals. Wigan have fallen under that 2.5 threshold in four of their last five games with those five matches featuring a combined nine goals; that is just 1.8 goals per game on average. Blackpool meanwhile have seen three of their last four games fall south of the 2.5 cut off. They've seen 10 goals across those four games mentioned in total giving them a game average bang on the 2.5 line. The stat that will make your mind up comes from the head to head record; three of the last four head to head meetings have ended under 2.5 goals.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Wigan odds: 7/5 (2.40) – 42%

Draw odds: 15/7 (3.14) – 32%

Huddersfield odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 32%

Wigan are the bookmakers favourites for this match but at just 42% probability vs Huddersfield's 32% there is plenty of scope for this game to follow its own script. We see the draw as the best value price here. One market where the bookies are much more confident though is the total goals market. The commonly used 2.5 goals mark is priced heavily ‘odds on' for ‘under' bets.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Wigan vs Huddersfield

Wigan

Wigan broke a two game losing run in their last match as they drew with Blackburn. That's a good result and gives them something to try and build on here. We're expecting to see an unchanged lineup, which means they'll opt for a 3-4-3 formation with the intention to go all out for a win in this match.

Predicted lineup – Amos, Kelly, Whatmough, Rekik, McClean, Power, Tiehi, Darikwa, Lang, Keane, Sinani

Huddersfield

Huddersfield so nearly had the perfect midweek but gave away their lead twice to relegation rivals. Jump forward a couple of days and it's all change with an interim manager, Narcis Pelach, now calling the shots. He's unlikely to make major changes to the XI after a decent showing but minor tweaks aren't out of the question.

Predicted lineup – Vaclik, Lowton, Pearson, Lees, Turton, Hogg, Kasumu, Diarra, Waghorn, Rhodes, Rudoni

Player to watch

Generally speaking, goals win games and Will Keane, who plays up top for Wigan, is the goalscorer across both sides. For that reason he has to be our player to watch – even though we have predicted that Keane will be on the losing side. To have hit double figures at this stage of the season in a struggling side is no mean feat; he has 10 goals with a couple of assists in his pocket.
