The recent matches involving Leeds United have started witnessing more consistency. Marcelo Bielsa’s men will also have a lot of motivation after having reclaimed the second spot. Furthermore, the title also appears to be within grasp if Leeds continue this current momentum. Wigan have also been playing well even if they have not been able to get over the finishing line and convert draws into wins. Wigan, surprisingly, have an excellent record at Elland Road with three wins in five. Yet, the smell of the Championship title will propel Leeds to a win, according to our preview.

Leeds United vs Wigan Athletic draw odds: 5.00
Wigan Athletic win odds: 8.50
Correct Score odds
Wigan have conceded over 2.5 goals per away game of late. Leeds were quite brilliant going forward against Sheffield Wednesday and the team could have scored a lot more than just one goal. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have not been the most solid team at the back this season, but Leeds have kept back-to-back clean sheets. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for Leeds.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though Leeds are expected to have a dominant performance, Wigan will be putting up a fight in order to try and stay in the division. The push for the goals from Wigan is likely to make this a high-scoring game – unlike the last three meetings between Wigan and Leeds at Elland Road. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Patrick Bamford was substituted after just over an hour in the game against Sheffield Wednesday. The striker had a disappointing match after having just come up with a brace in the previous game against Preston. Still, Bamford could lead the attack considering that Kemar Roofe has been going through a very bad patch of form. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Patrick Bamford.
