Sportingbet preview - Wigan
Our betting partners Sportingbet take a look at the markets available for tonight's Premier League match against Wigan at the Lane.
Tottenham Hotspur fans will be hoping a return to White Hart Lane brings back the stylish football of weeks gone by after reaching the FA Cup Fifth Round in more workmanlike fashion at Watford.
Visitors Wigan should provoke mixed feelings in the home faithful, given the varying fortunes Spurs have enjoyed against the perennial strugglers. Results at the Lane include last year’s 1-0 defeat and the 9-1 mauling of two seasons ago, but surely at 2/9 the three points are assured?
Spurs have notched at least once in their last 21 games, while Wigan have conceded in over 90% of away games and seen 72% of them go Over 2.5 goals. That would explain why three or more goals is 1/2 but a fourth strike would mean a 7/5 payday on Over 3.5.
If you’re expecting a tighter affair, or just can’t see the league’s lowest-scoring attack finding the net, take Spurs to win to nil at an attractive 17/20 and turn a £20 bet into £37. Good luck!
