Bet on Wigan vs Bolton – History suggests low-scoring game

| 23.10.2010

Wigan have enjoyed a recent revival in results to climb the Premier League table, but their unbeaten run is likely to be tested by a Bolton side that they have struggled to score against in recent meetings.

Match Odds

Roberto Martinez has always attempted to play attacking football at Wigan and their most recent results suggest that this is starting to pay dividends on the pitch.

After some heavy early defeats, Wigan have not lost in three games and this has helped give them some slight breathing space from the relegation places.

Wigan are 7/5 to beat Bolton, but to do so would mean improving upon their somewhat disappointing home record.

They have won just one of their five home games and conceded 13 goals at the DW Stadium.

Bolton are 19/10 to beat Wigan and a victory would represent their 50th away from home in the Premier League.

Over/Under 1.5 goals

Games between Wigan and Bolton have tended to be low scoring in recent seasons and it would be no surprise to see a single goal settle the encounter.

Only six goals have been scored in the last five meetings between the pair and four of these came in the game at the Reebok in March.

Wigan have not scored in their last three clashes with their neighbours, while both of the last two games at Wigan have ended goalless.

It is 11/5 that under 1.5 goals are scored this season, while 8/1 is on offer in the correct scoreline market that the game ends 0-0.

If there is to be a goal then it may come from Johan Elmander, who has struck four times in as many away games for Bolton during this campaign.

Elmander is 7/4 to score at any time within the 90 minutes. See the whole Wigan vs Bolton match betting odds market.
