Wigan were able to overcome a four-game losing sequence to pick up a point against Reading in a goalless draw. Both teams did not have enough chances to come away with a victory.

Blackburn and Wigan played out a 2-2 draw at Ewood Park when both teams met each other in the League One 2017-18 campaign. The meeting at the DW Stadium also produced a goalless draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Blackburn and Wigan are priced at 3.20 and 2.45 for a win. Both clubs have been on a poor run of form of late. Wigan’s confidence levels is quite poor with the team unable to provide any impact in the final third of the pitch – in the recent game against Reading. Blackburn need to wake up after the heavy loss against Preston, but the team has done relatively well to pick up away points. Wigan have been quite strong at the DW Stadium with just one defeat at home this season. Our preview would take a draw.

Wigan Athletic win odds: 2.45
Blackburn win odds: 3.20
Correct Score odds
Both meetings between the two clubs in the 2017-18 campaign produced a stalemate. Wigan have been mediocre at both ends of the pitch, while Blackburn continue to play entertaining football in line with manager Tony Mowbray’s philosophy. This has led to goals at the other end of the pitch. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The vast majority of games at the DW Stadium this season have been low on goals. Since September, there have been just two high-scoring fixtures on this ground in all competitions. Even though Blackburn are not defensively sound, they are likely to be cautious about avoiding yet another heavy defeat in consecutive games. This may result in a restricted goalscoring intent from the visitors. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Bradley Dack has been in fine form for Blackburn with eight goals in his 15 Championship appearances. The attacking midfielder scored in his last two games at Ewood Park, but his last away goal was back at the start of October. Still, the low confidence levels experienced by Wigan make our first goalscorer prediction opt for Dack.
