Swansea to win

Our first tip for this match is a pretty obvious one as we back Swansea to win. Well, we say it's obvious owing to the stats, which we'll come on to shortly, however, the odds are very attractive. So, the stats; Swansea have won each of their last four home games whilst Wigan have lost each of their last three on the road. On top of that poor away run, it's also worth noting that Wigan haven't taken a single point from their last five games. On top of that, Swansea haven't lost to Wigan since 2010 – some nine games ago – whilst Wigan haven't beaten Swansea away from home this century! With that considered, the odds on offer for a Swansea win represent definite value.

Going over 2.5 goals

Wigan's form might be poor but their games certainly haven't been dull with plenty of goals hitting the net and we think this one will be similar as we back over 2.5 goals. Swansea have seen three of their last four home games go north of the 2.5 goal mark with a total of 13 goals being scored across that period. Wigan meanwhile have seen each of their last three away games pass the 2.5 cut off as well. Furthermore, five of the last six matches between these two sides have seen at least three goals.

Here are the key stats & form guide for Swansea vs Wigan

Wigan woes to continue

There was a time when Wigan were performing reasonably well after promotion but the wheels are seemingly well and truly off now. They've lost seven of their last eight games and sit third from bottom. By contrast, Swansea have put together a good run of form – particularly at home – and know that a win here will give them a great chance of breaking into the top six. With the positions of both sides considered, it's fair to say that the three points are more valuable than normal.

Swansea arrive in this game with a strong squad to select from. Only Joe Allen and Liam Walsh are ruled out through injury. The key man to watch for the Swans is Joel Piroe, who is highly capable of bagging goals.

Swansea Predicted lineup – Benda, Darling, Cabango, Latibeaudiere, Manning, Naughton, Grimes, Fulton, Ntcham, Cundle, Piroe

Wigan's form is dreadful right now but there is a little bit of positive news ahead of their trip to Wales. Gwion Edwards – a long term absentee – is back in training and could be on the bench for this match. Callum Lang remains injured.

Wigan Predicted lineup – Jones, Kerr, Whatmough, Tilt, Darikwa, Power, Cousins, Naylor, McClean, Keane, Broadhead
