Wigan hope to continue with their play-off push when they host Swansea City at the DW Stadium in the midweek action. The Latics and Swansea are separated by just goal difference coming into the game, but the visitors will be more disappointed of the two with their recent form and the way the campaign has panned out so far. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Wigan were disappointing in yet another away game, as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Norwich City at Carrow Road. After coming close to snatching a draw out of the game, Wigan lost courtesy of a late penalty.
Swansea utilised home advantage to register a first win in four games, as they beat QPR 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium. The victory helped Wayne Swansea’s push for a play-off place.
Swansea and QPR meet each other for the first time in more than five years. Swansea then made a trip to the DW Stadium and picked up a 3-2 win. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Swansea City are at a long price to get a victory and it is not surprising considering that Wigan are unbeaten at home this season. Paul Cook’s team have been heavily dependent on home form in order to storm up the Championship 2018-19 table. Swansea may have just picked up the biggest win of the campaign, but the concerns for the club have been away from home. After having registered just two away wins this season, Swansea are not a strong pick to get a win out of this match. At the same time, our preview would back a draw.

Wigan Athletic win odds: 2.10
Swansea City win odds: 3.90
Correct Score odds
The recent game between Wigan and Swansea happened more than five years ago. Both teams have been quite mediocre in front of goal and at the back in recent matches. The lack of any outstanding performances from Wigan is likely to make this game as a low scoring draw. Our correct score prediction would go with the 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Welsh outfit struggle when it comes to scoring away from home. Graham Potter has seen his team unable to score in three out of the last four away games in the Championship. Wigan have averaged close to 2 goals per game at home but it is difficult to see Swansea’s defence letting a big defeat. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Nick Powell has a habit of scoring goals at home and three of the midfielder’s four league goals have been at the DW Stadium. After recently ending a five-game drought, it is recommended to back Powell for the first goal of the game, as per our first goalscorer prediction.
