Bolton Wanderers FC vs Wigan Athletic FC – Betting Tips for the game
Bolton come into the game on the back of a nine-match losing run. Their most recent outing against Sheffield Wednesday on the road ended in a 1-0 defeat. The Trotters have picked up just two points since the start of October.
Wigan, meanwhile, extended their unbeaten run to two matches after a resounding 3-1 win over Blackburn Rovers at home. The victory was their first since the shock triumph over West Bromwich Albion in mid-October.
The last encounter between the teams ended in a 1-1 draw at the DW Stadium three years ago. In the same year, Bolton got the better of Wigan by a slender 1-0 margin in an FA Cup game at the Macron Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions would back a Wigan win.

Bolton Wanderers FC vs Wigan Athletic FC – Correct Score odds
Bolton’s struggles have culminated from their poor scoring record and they have netted just once in the previous six matches. Wigan have fared far better with an average of one goal per game and they come into this clash with confidence after a solid triumph over Blackburn. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Wigan 1-0 win.
Bolton Wanderers FC vs Wigan Athletic FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bolton may have gone through a tough spell in the Championship but they have still managed to keep the scores down. They have witnessed just a single goal in four of their previous five matches at the Macron Stadium and a similar result can be anticipated with their evident lack of firepower upfront. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.
Bolton Wanderers FC vs Wigan Athletic FC – First Goalscorer odds
James Vaughan managed to find the scoresheet via the penalty spot in midweek and that was just his second goal of the season for Wigan. Nonetheless, he should lead the line with the likes of Nick Powell and Will Grigg struggling while he is a good candidate to score from a spot kick once more. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with James Vaughan.
