Wigan vs Man City betting
Wigan take on Manchester City at home on Monday night looking to take advantage of their recent mini blip in form. The home side have lost their last two games, which included a cup upset against Swindon, but Man City have also lost their last two cup games. Both teams are playing catch up on their rivals in the table, so will the pressure get to them?
Wigan Athletic could go into this tie rock bottom of the Premier League table, if Blackburn can get anything at home to Fulham. It’s looking quite bleak for Roberto Martinez’s men and they need to start picking up points if they are going to stay up this season. Their home form has been pretty poor so far this term, with just 1 win from their 10 games. This is why they are huge underdogs going into the game, with odds as long as 9.5 available from William Hill on a home win. Hugo Rodallega scored his first goal of the season in Wigan’s last league game, and if the striker can find his goal scoring touch again, it will be a big boost for The Latics. With this in mind, betting on the Colombian to score at any time during the game is holding some good value, with odds of 4.5 available from Skybet.
Manchester City are enduring a tough time of it at the moment, they are out of the FA Cup, behind in the League Cup semi-final, and their captain is still banned for 3 games. To make matters worse, Roberto Mancini is still without Yaya Toure, one of their most important players, whilst he is away on international duty. However, they should still have plenty of quality in their side to get a good win on Monday night, which is why they are firm favourites and best priced at 1.44 with Paddy Power. There is no real value in this market so betting on a correct score of 2-0 Man City gives better value with odds of 8.0 available from Ladbrokes. Striker Sergio Aguero should have too much pace and quality for Wigan, and could easily bag a few goals. So betting on the Argentine to open the scoring is looking good, with odds of 4.75 at Bet365.
