The Wiganer Betting Column

02 December 2011 01:01
888sport's betting expert, Ed Nicholson, starts the all new betting column for The Wiganer by taking a look at Saturday's clash with Arsenal…

Roberto Martinez’s Wigan side host an out-of-sorts Arsenal tomorrow, and there’s more similarities between these two than league position suggests. Arsenal have shipped 23 goals this season, only one fewer than Wigan. Arsenal to concede tomorrow is 8/15 with 888sport.

Unfortunately, 888sport has Arsenal as favourites to win at the DW Stadium tomorrow, at 4/7. A win for The Lactics is 5/1. And the draw is 11/4.

Ben Watson has scored in his last two appearances for Wigan against Arsenal at the DW Stadium. Watson is 16/1 to score first tomorrow and 5/1 to score at anytime.

Arsenal have dropped five points from winning positions in the last 10 minutes of the last two matches at the DW Stadium. You can have Wigan to win having been behind at a special price of 20/1.

In the last four meetings between the Latics and the Gunners where both sides have scored, the team that has netted the opening goal has failed to win. In that case, you can back Arsenal to score first at 1/3.

All the best to the Latics tomorrow.
