Following Saturday’s 3-2 victory at West Brom, Wigan know that another success as they entertain Swansea will see them climb out of the bottom three and BetVictor make the Latics 17/20 to take a huge stride towards another ‘great escape’.
That price looks a touch slender given that Roberto Martinez’s troops have managed only four home victories all season and have the distraction of the FA Cup final at the weekend but with survival now a distinct possibility the hosts should nevertheless edge it at the DW Stadium against a Swans side without a win in seven.
The visitors haven’t scored in three matches so Coral’s 10/11 for this contest to produce fewer than three goals looks a safe bet.
William Hill post 7/1 against Wigan bagging the only goal, Skybet rate them at 21/10 to prevail ‘to nil’ and in what’s set to be a tight, tense affair – certainly from a Latics perspective – a case can be made for BetVictor’s 17/4 about Martinez’s men shading it after a level first period; they might have to be patient before making the breakthrough.
