Man City vs Wigan – Home win to nil looking best bet

| 05.03.2011

Wigan’s difficulties in scoring at Eastlands in recent seasons can continue to plague them again and therefore Manchester City look overpriced at 6/5 in the Premier League betting to win to nil against their north-west rivals.

Match Odds

Manchester City’s betting odds are 4/11 to beat Wigan and a victory will keep alive their slim hopes of winning the Premier League this season, although they have won just one of their last five league games.

Meanwhile, their chances will also be aided by the fact that Wigan are not the best travellers in the top flight, winning just twice on the road in the Premier League this season.

If Wigan are to win they will definitely need to perform better than they did at Eastlands last season when they left having failed to register a single shot on target.

A goal for Wigan would also take their tally to 100 in away games in the Premier League.

It is 8/1 in the Premier League betting that Wigan beat Manchester City, with the draw priced at 7/2.

Wigan have been tough to beat on the road of late, drawing three of their last four away games.

To Win To Nil

With only Birmingham scoring less league goals than Wigan in the Premier League this season, it is highly likely that they will draw a blank at Manchester City.

Furthermore, Wigan have failed to score on their last three trips to Eastlands, while Manchester City have kept clean sheets in six of their last nine home games.

Goals have often been in short supply in the most recent Premier League showdowns between Manchester City and Wigan, with the target found just six times in the last five games.

A £25 stake on the scorecast of Manchester City beating Wigan 1-0 and Carlos Tevez scoring first would return £350. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
