Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Both teams to score is at 4/7 and given the form of both teams, this is a very smart bet and will likely be a good Championship prediction.

2 We fancy:

Wigan are no pushovers, but West Brom are second in the table for good reason, which is why a 3-1 away win at 13/1 is a good bet and one of the best football betting tips for the weekend.

3 It's a long shot, but…

A 4-4 draw may not seem too out of the question but the likelihood of it is just so out of the blue, which is why it’s 200/1 with Betfair.

One to Watch: Dwight Gayle

One thing that always gets mentioned about Gayle is that he’s in the Premier League/Championship buffer zone when it comes to goalscoring. In the Premier League he doesn’t always score as much as he should but in the Championship, he’s always in top form. For West Brom, this is no different as he’s already scored eight goals in 11 Championship games, including a brace in their last win against Sheffield Wednesday.

If you’re looking for correct football score predictions, it may be wise to look at West From to win 1-0 at 9/1 with Betfair, with Gayle scoring the only goal. However, the only issue you may have with this scoreline is the Baggies have a habit of scoring two or more goals in a game, something they’ve done in their last five games.

Wigan Athletic vs West Brom Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Nick Powell is one of the players looking to make a mark on this game between Wigan and West Brom

Two teams that have had differing starts to their Championship campaigns face off this weekend with both harbouring hopes of the same outcome by the end of the season.

Wigan, managed by Paul Hart, dropped down to 12th by holding the third best home record in the league, host West Brom who are currently second in the Championship table, picking up nine points from their six away games so far.

With the Baggies just one point off of the top of the Championship, it may look like an away win is in order – priced at 6/5 with Betfair – but with odds of 21/10 and a good home record, Wigan will have other ideas. 

Such is the tightness of the league, a win for Wigan would potentially put them in the middle of the play-off picture, if results go their way, whereas West Brom can only drop to the same position.

It’s a tough game to call with both teams having the capabilities to pull off any result, but an away win or draw at 5/2 with Betfair could be worth a bet in the double chance market. 

Predicted Score: Wigan Athletic 1 - 3 West Brom
