Wigan vs Watford: Our top betting tips

Watford turned up in a big way in their last outing as they hammered Luton. Will they be on song again here? Find out with our Wigan vs Watford match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Watford to win

This game isn't remotely an easy one to call but we're backing Watford to come out on top. The Hornets, who have been plagued by inconsistency, have won two of their last three games with their levels extremely high when they actually turn up. By contrast, Wigan have struggled big time of late with just one win in their last six games and, notably, they've lost the other five. With Watford also having won three of the last four head to head meetings there are plenty of reasons to expect an away win here and, for the odds on offer, we think it's pretty good value too.

Going over 2.5 goals

Our next tip for this match focuses on the total goals market and we are opting for an over 2.5 goals bet. Wigan have seen four of their last five games go north of that threshold with a combined total of 16 goals netted; that's an average of 3.2 per game. Watford meanwhile have gone over the 2.5 mark in each of their last five matches. They've seen a total of 17 goals scored in that time giving them a game average of 3.4 goals. With both sides regularly going north of the all important it off a game with a few goals here feels extremely likely. Two of the last three head to head games have gone over the 2.5 threshold.

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

Can Watford win back to back games?

This game could be a big one for both of these sides. Watford need to breathe some life back into their season if they want to start making up ground on the top six whilst Wigan are slipping towards the relegation zone as things stand. With three points on offer here, both teams will want them pretty desperately given where they've been trending of late.

Wigan have lost three straight games heading into this match and things don't get much easier with Watford visiting. On the injury front, Gwion Edwards is definitely missing from selection with Callum Lang a question mark.

Wigan Predicted lineup – Amos, Kerr, Whatmough, Tilt, Darikwa, Power, Cousins, Shinnie, McClean, Keane, Broadhead

Watford produced a really good display last time out and will likely go with a very similar lineup here – in fact, it could well be exactly the same. Jeremy Ngakia and Tom Cleverley remain unavailable due to injury.

Watford Predicted lineup – Bachmann, Gosling, Troost-Ekong, Cathcart, Kamara, Choudhury, Kayembe, Sema, Sarr, Joao Pedro, Davis
