West Brom head north on Saturday afternoon to face Wigan in what looks likely to be a tight clash in the Premier League. West Brom go into the match after a fantastic start to the season but they will face a Wigan side who have won their last two matches and will fancy their chances of picking up another three points this weekend. It promises to be a tight match between the two teams with the betting reflecting just that at the moment with plenty of money coming for all three outcomes.
West Brom have been in great form so far this season under Steve Clarke and find themselves sitting in fifth place at the moment and dreaming of a successful season. Clarke is clearly relishing his chance in the hot seat and they will go to the DW Stadium full of confidence after beating Southampton 2-0 at home on Monday night. Having said all of that it is worth noting that the Baggies are yet to win on the road this season and they will have to play well to break that duck this weekend.
The Baggies are the slight outsiders here but punters wanting to back West Brom to win by any score line can currently get a price of 2/1 with Ladbrokes. That looks to be a decent price for a side flying so high in the Premier League but it does also reflect the toughness of going to Wigan and winning and Roberto Martinez must take the credit for that.
Every single season we hear the so called experts predict that Wigan will be relegated this time around and they always seem to confound those critics. Once again this season we find Wigan sitting in a solid position in mid table and while there is still plenty of games to go they have made an impressive start to the campaign once again. They are always a tough side to beat and coming off of a shock 1-0 away at Spurs last weekend they are flying high on confidence and will be looking for a third win on the bounce against West Brom.
Wigan look to have found a bargain in the shape of Arouna Kone and he will once again be leading the line for the home side here. The Ivorian Striker has made a strong start to his English career and if he fires on Saturday West Brom could be in for a long afternoon at the DW Stadium. Punters wanting to back Wigan to win the match by any score line can currently get a price of 13/10 with Ladbrokes and that reflects their form heading into the match.
Like so many games in the Premier League this one could really go either way and that is reflected in the tight nature of the betting market. West Brom are the side in the better form but they are yet to win on the road making the draw the result to follow at the DW. We like the chances of the match ending 1-1 and that can be backed at a good looking price of 11/2 in the current betting.
Tip 1 - Wigan and West Brom to draw 1-1 @ 11/2 with Ladbrokes
Tip 2 - Arouna Kone to score anytime @ 7/4 wiith Ladbrokes
