Fulham the likelier to win

| 15.01.2011

Saturday’s match between Wigan Atheltic and Fulham is likely to be given bottom billing on Match of the Day this Saturday.

Fans that flock to the DW Stadium should prepare for a snooze-fest when two of the Premier League’s lowest scoring teams meet on Saturday, and the 0-0 draw looks the pick of the bets at 8/1.

Match Odds

When two teams are evenly matched in the betting market, the usual outcome is that the teams on the pitch will share the spoils and punters should pile on the draw at 23/10.

The last four occasions that Fulham have travelled to Wigan have all ended with the spoils being shared with two games ending 0-0 and two games ending 1-1.

Wigan have only won two of their 11 Premier League meetings with Fulham and Roberto Martinez’s side are in danger of propping up the Premier League come Sunday – punters should stay away from the 6/4 for Wigan to beat Fulham.

Fulham have the better chance of the two teams after their mini-revival that continued with the 6-2 thrashing of Peterborough, and they are 9/5 to beat Wigan and claim the double over the Lactics.

Total Goals

A stalemate is on the cards and punters should take full advantage of the clean sheet, total goals and neither team to score betting markets.

A clean sheet for Fulham is priced at 21/10 while a Wigan clean sheet is available at 15/8 and neither team to score in the second half is priced at 11/5.

But the pick of the Wigan vs Fulham betting markets is under 1.5 goals at 7/4 and a £25 stake on the total goals not exceeding one would return £60.

If one team is to pick up the three points then Fulham are a good price at 10/3 to win to nil.

A £25 stake on Cole scoring first and West Ham winning 1-0 would return £1675. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
