Wigan Athletic are at the DW Stadium for Friday’s late kick-off versus Bristol City. The Latics returned to winning ways last weekend with a victory over Hull City and they are separated from the playoff positions on only goal difference. Bristol recently witnessed their first league defeat in over a month but they are nevertheless in the top six with a one-point advantage over the Latics. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Wigan picked up their fourth league win of the league campaign as they secured a 2-1 triumph over Hull City. Sam Morsy and Josh Windass bagged the goals for the Latics during the first period of the game.

Meanwhile, Bristol saw their four-match winning league streak cease last weekend as they suffered a 4-2 defeat on the road to West Bromwich Albion. Jay Rodriguez was the star of the day with a brace for the hosts.

Wigan previously faced Bristol City at the DW Stadium in March 2017 where they succumbed to a 1-0 loss. Aden Flint netted the winner in the 88th minute of the game. Our betting tips and predictions expect a home win for Wigan.

Match odds

Bristol are given a price of 3.40 for the victory but we are not backing this result on the road. Bristol may have ended their woes with two wins from the previous three times but they are up against a Wigan, who are difficult to beat in their home patch. The Latics are unbeaten in the Championship this term with a streak stretching to February this year and we are anticipating them to outscore the visitors. Our preview would back Wigan to seal the three points.

Wigan Athletic vs Bristol City draw odds: 3.40

Bristol City win odds: 3.40

Correct Score odds

Wigan have remained unbeaten in their first four home games of the season and they have racked up 10 points. Likewise, Bristol have seen a change to their away fortunes with seven points this term but they are coming off a rather demoralising 4-2 defeat at West Brom. Wigan come into the game with momentum. We are fancying them to continue their unbeaten home run, which presently stands at 11 league matches. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Wigan 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Wigan were lauded for their strong defensive record during the previous campaign but the jump to the Championship has witnessed them leak goals. Only one of their home matches this term has involved less than three goals and the outcome was similar during Bristol’s recent away trip to West Brom.

First Goalscorer odds

Will Grigg has continued his previous campaign’s form and he has contributed three goals already this term. Out of those, the Northern Irishman has opened the scoring on one occasion and he may be fancied to score this weekend. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Grigg.
