Match Summary

One to Watch: Will Grigg

Grigg is more than just a fun football song that peaked in 2016 – he’s a very good striker to back if you want to have a football betting tip for the weekend on goal scorers.

Although he hasn’t quite hit the strides that he’d have hoped so far for Wigan, scoring three goals in nine games but he is still always the one striker you can’t ignore. Bet365 have Grigg at 13/2 to open the scoring 21/10 to score at any time which is quite good value considering his knack of always scoring. If football score predictions are up your alley, Grigg to score first in a 2-1 Wigan win is at 55/1, which is insanely good value.

Preston North End vs Wigan Athletic Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Struggling Preston host ambitious Wigan at Deepdale

Could an upset be on the cards? If it wasn’t for some recent fixtures, the answer to that question in the football predictions would have been an undeniable “no”, but given the draw that Preston got away at Villa and Wigan had at home to Swansea, it’s a strong possibility that the home side will get their boost following their only second draw of the season.

Despite the exciting and controversial draw against the Midlands club, Preston are still rooted to the bottom of the Championship on goal difference and most Championship predictions will have the away side the victors – priced at 21/10 with Bet365 – to win the game.

That being said, Paul Cook’s side will be aiming to get their first win since their win against Bristol City, and it could see them jump back into the play off positions if results go their way, which would be a bit of a turn-up in the pre-season Championship predictions.

Both sides will be looking to get their winning runs on track, or at least in Wigan’s case back on track, and even though they are at opposite ends of the table this game will mean just as much to both clubs, both sets of players and fans. 

Predicted Score: Preston North End 1 - 3 Wigan Athletic
