Reason For Stoke vs Wigan Betting Tips

  • Stoke meet Wigan in a relegation six-pointer.
  • Michael O’Neill needs a result after going on international duty with Northern Ireland.
  • Stoke won when these two met in the EFL Cup this term.
  • Wigan have won just once across their last 29 away league games.

Pressure on O’Neill

Can Stoke record back to back victories and maintain Michael O’Neill’s perfect start as Potters’ boss? The new man at the helm went with Northern Ireland during the international break, leaving his squad behind during what could have been a vital period for them to gel with his new approach. There’s likely to be plenty criticism for that decision if things go wrong here.

However, O’Neill has the chance to land a major scalp with a victory against fellow strugglers Wigan. Pulling off a win against another side in danger of the drop would put the hosts on the right track and boost faith in the Northern Irish manager’s abilities.

High Stakes for Potters

The hosts were able to see off Barnsley last time out, while they are aiming for more in this meeting with Wigan. The Latics have already been beaten by Stoke once this season, with the Potters edging an EFL Cup tie at the DW Stadium earlier this season. However, the stakes are higher here.

The hosts know that they need to inspire a run of form following O’Neill’s arrival. Not all of the fans are happy with the move, while his decision for job share for the next four months is also a concern. On the bright side, Wigan look perfectly set for a defeat here.

Woeful Wigan

The arrival of their new boss should improve things for a Stoke side who have showed their talents with some strong displays, sitting in the top half based on the strength of their performance data. They’ve been let down by bad luck and defensive errors, but that’s something O’Neill has proven he can fix.

Meanwhile, Wigan remain awful on their travels losing six of their eight trips this term. They’ve conceded 15 times in eight games, scoring just five in return. The Latics have lost three of their last four overall, while they have won one of their last 29 trips, losing 22 of those. With the Latics already losing to Stoke this term, we see value in the home win.

Given the visitors’ recent record of goals conceded, we are going with a 2-0 home win as our correct score prediction. Wigan don’t score anywhere near enough goals on the road while they are far too open, which has prompted us to back a 2-0 home win this weekend.
