Wigan Athletic welcome Frank Lampard’s Derby County to the DW Stadium this weekend. Paul Cook’s team have remained unbeaten since the last international break and they are still lying in the lower end of the standings with a seven-point gap to the drop zone. Derby, though, are right behind the final playoff position on goal…
Wigan Athletic FC vs Derby County FC – Betting Tips for the game
Wigan come into the clash on the back of a 1-1 draw on the road to Bolton Wanderers. They have now gone three games without being beaten, although just one of those has resulted in a victory.
Derby, meanwhile, returned to winning ways last weekend after they got the better of Swansea City by a 2-1 scoreline. On-loan attacker Harry Wilson continued his fine form with a first-half brace.
The last encounter between the clubs was at Pride Park in December 2016 which finished in a goalless stalemate. In the same month, Wigan entertained Derby in their home stadium where they suffered a 1-0 loss. Our betting tips and predictions fancy an away win.

Wigan Athletic FC vs Derby County FC – Correct Score odds
Wigan have been hugely reliant on their home form for success this term and they have accumulated nearly 85% of their points in their stadium. Still, their recent scoring record has not been great with just five goals from their previous five matches. This is where Derby may seek to capitalise, having netted nearly twice the number of goals (9) in the past five away trips. Our correct score prediction favours a Derby 2-1 win.
Wigan Athletic FC vs Derby County FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wigan have witnessed three or more goals in a couple of home matches since November and this trend should continue on Saturday with their opponents in good scoring form. Moreover, Derby are likewise vulnerable at the back on the road with no clean sheets this term. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.
Wigan Athletic FC vs Derby County FC – First Goalscorer odds
Harry Wilson has excelled for Derby since the last international break with goals in each of the previous three matches. The Liverpool loanee has opened the scoring in just one of those games but he remains a genuine scoring threat with his ability to influence matches with his free-kicks as well. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Wilson.
