Today's Betting Tips for Wigan vs Hull

Can either side strike what could prove a decisive blow in the battle for survival in the Championship when Wigan host Hull on Monday? Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Hull Double Chance

Wigan are rooted to the foot of the Championship table following successive 4-1 defeats to Middlesbrough and Sunderland, and with the atmosphere starting to turn toxic at the DW Stadium, the Latics could crumble under the pressure again when they host relegation rivals Hull on Monday. The Tigers are unbeaten in four games and they snatched all three points at Birmingham in their last assignment. City seem to have turned a corner and they look excellent value in the double chance market here.

Under 2.5 Goals

Hull have tightened up at the back considerably since the resumption of the Championship campaign and each of their last four matches in the division have featured under 2.5 goals as a result. Only three clubs in the second tier have scored fewer goals than Wigan this term and the toothless Latics might find it tough to pull Hull’s reworked defence apart on Monday. With that considered, another stake on under 2.5 goals fits the bill this week.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets and odds ahead of Monday’s showdown between Wigan and Hull.

Wigan odds: 7/5 (2.4) – 41.7%

Draw odds: 23/10 (3.3) – 30.3%

Hull odds: 39/20 (2.95) – 33.9%

The bookmakers think Wigan have enough in their locker to win on Monday, despite the Latics’ wretched run. They also believe the hosts will win more corners at 5/6 (1.83) – 54.5% however, in the individual markets, they’ve priced Hull’s Oscar Estupinan as favourite to score first at 5/1 (6.0) – 16.7%.

Wigan vs Hull Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Monday’s Championship contest between Wigan and Hull below.

Wigan

Defenders Jason Kerr and Tom Pearce are both absent for Wigan, while midfielder Jack Whatmough is still on the comeback trail from a hamstring injury. Wigan conceded four times for the second time on the spin when they were battered 4-1 by Sunderland last week and the Latics are now propping up the rest in the Championship.

Predicted Lineup for Wigan: Jones – Nymbe, Hughes, Tilt, McClean – Power, Cousins, Lang, Keane, Aasgaard – Broadhead

Hull

Hull City will be without the services of midfield pair Dimitrios Pelkas and Vaughn Covil this week, while forward Benjamin Tetteh has a hamstring complaint and will be out for another couple of weeks. Hull eked out a 1-0 win at Birmingham last time out and dragged themselves further clear of the drop zone as a result.

Predicted Lineup for Hull: Ingram – Christie, Jones, McLoughlin, Greaves – Woods, Seri, Longman, Tufan, Slater – Estupinan

Player to Watch – Oscar Estupinan

Hull would have been lost without Colombian striker Oscar Estupinan this season and the 26-year-old scored his tenth Championship goal of the season when he notched City’s winner at Birmingham last week. The lethal finisher has scored 35% of the Tigers’ total goals in the second tier since August and he could be a difference-maker again on Monday.
