Wigan vs West Brom: Baggies to crank up relegation heat on Latics

| 17.03.2012

With just two Premier League games being played on Saturday, Wigan have a superb opportunity to propel themselves out of the relegation zone, but will struggle to beat West Brom at 7/4 to ensure that.

The Baggies look a much more attractive proposition to get behind however, generously priced at 6/4, and with three wins in their last four matches, including a 5-1 smash away to relegation candidates Wolves.

You can invest in the draw at 23/10, but with the attractive football that each side plays both home and away, backing the score draw may be a better option at 3/1 if you fancy the teams to cancel each other out.

More cautious punters will take interest in the 4/6 on offer for both sides to simply score in the match, whilst you can get 6/4 on the Baggies, free-scoring away from home this term, to find the net two or three times in the game, and a massive 11/1 for them to score four or more times.

Correct score betting also offers some interesting odds, with the 18/1 about a 3-1 away win looking too big, and the huge 40/1 on a 4-1 West Brom win attractive to braver punters.

What looks a superb bet is for West Brom, with the fourth best away record in the league, to beat the Premier League’s worst home side Wigan, with three or more goals occurring in the match at 7/2.

This gamble looks all the more appealing when considering an average of well more than three goals has occurred on the Baggies’ travels this season, and in Wigan games on their own patch.

Meanwhile, in terms of first scorer bets, punters should look no further than Nigerian livewire Peter Odemwingie.

The West Brom hitman has racked up five goals in his last four appearances, and can extend his blistering run of form with the opener here at 5/1.
