Wigan Athletic vs Derby County betting tips


Opposing Wigan at home backfired on us when they faced Blackburn last time out on their own pitch, and hopefully it won’t be a mistake to change stance against Derby.

We fancied Blackburn to win that Lancashire derby but Wigan ran out 3-1 victors as they maintained their excellent record at the DW Stadium, where Paul Cook’s side have lost only once in the league since February.

The Latics’ home and away records this season are like chalk and cheese because 21 of their 25 points in the Championship have been gained on their own pitch, leaving them in a solid 15th position.

Derby, meanwhile, continue to be in the promotion fight but, as you could potentially expect of a young team, they are inconsistent and have been alternating wins and losses recently with no particular pattern between home and away results.

Frank Lampard’s side are struggling to keep clean sheets and have not recorded a shutout in their last 14 games, which will have the Wigan attackers licking their chops here.

The Rams simply appear too short a price in the 90-minute result market for this game and the odds about a Wigan success, considering that terrific home record, appeal much more.
