Preston North End welcome Wigan Athletic to Deepdale for this weekend’s league clash. The hosts are winless since the opening day triumph over Queens Park Rangers and they are rooted to the bottom of the standings. Wigan are lying in the top half of the table and just goal difference separates them from the playoff places. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Preston managed to end a four-match losing run in midweek as they played out a 3-3 draw against Aston Villa. Preston appeared on course for a first victory in 10 league games but they were pegged back by a Yannick Bolasie equaliser in stoppage time.

Wigan, meanwhile, went winless for the second game on the bounce as they drew 0-0 against Swansea City at home. The Latics have now failed to find the net in successive matches with the other game ending in a defeat.

Preston’s recent encounter against Wigan was at the DW Stadium last year and it ended in a 0-0 draw. The last meeting at Deepdale saw Preston run out 1-0 victors. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a Preston win.

Match odds

Wigan are given a priced of 3.30 for the victory but we are not fancying this result based on their away run this term. Wigan may have made good progress since their second-tier comeback but they have struggled on the road as they accumulated just one win from five matches. Preston have only fared slightly better but they have home advantage to end their winless run against Wigan, who have drawn blank in each of their last three away trips. Our preview would back a Preston win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Preston have restricted their opposition from scoring on just one occasion at Deepdale and majority of their matches have witnessed over three goals. However, Wigan are coming off back-to-back games without scoring. Wigan have also failed to find the scoresheet in the last two meetings against Preston. Our total goals prediction is to go for less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Callum Robinson has found form over the past month with three goals from six appearances. Out of those, two have come in the Championship although in losing causes for the team. Robinson has been able to test the opposition keeper regularly with 57% of his attempts on target. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Robinson.
