Wigan vs West Ham – Wigan to confirm West Ham relegation

| 14.05.2011

Every game at this stage of the season is a must-win for teams at the bottom of the table, but if West Ham fail to win they will be relegated.

Saturday’s results failed to go the way of either side but a win for Wigan would leave five teams separated by just one point entering the final weekend of the Premier League season.

Match Odds

The good news for West Ham fans is that they have won four of their last five games against Wigan in the Premier League and the Irons are 11/5 to take home the three points at the DW Stadium.

The bad news for West Ham fans is that they are on a run of seven games without a win while Wigan are unbeaten in three at the DW.

Wigan are 6/5 to win and send West Ham down and each of the last three meetings at the DW between these two have ended 1-0 with Wigan winning two of them.

Total Goals

A 1-0 Wigan win is priced at 7/1 but Roberto Martinez’s side have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 19 league games and so punters should fill their boots with the 8/11 for over 2.5 goals.

West Ham have only lost one of their nine games against the bottom six sides in the Premier League this season which suggests they have the pedigree to win, and they are 10/1 to win 2-1.

But with home advantage we’re plumping for Wigan to make the final weekend extremely interesting, although they may have to come from behind and are 9/1 to come from behind and win.

A £10 stake on Dirk Kuyt scoring first and Liverpool winning 2-0 would return £290. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free bet worth up to £30.
