Wigan Athletic vs Peterborough United tips and odds

Peterborough United have taken just one point from their last three England. League One matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Peterborough United are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Wigan Athletic should prove no easy feat either – Peterborough United haven’t won against any England. League One leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Wigan Athletic have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Wigan Athletic dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the England. League One’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Wigan Athletic are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Wigan Athletic and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Wigan Athletic’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Peterborough United are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Peterborough United took a point away from Wigan Athletic (1-1 draw).

Notably, Wigan Athletic’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Wigan Athletic have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four England. League One away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Peterborough United, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Peterborough United getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Peterborough United are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Wigan Athletic hold the best away record in the England. League One (W8 D2 L1). Peterborough United’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Wigan Athletic’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Wigan Athleticns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Wigan Athletic win at 15/2 with bet365.
