Premier League Betting Tips: Wigan v Arsenal

Wigan will be playing Arsenal today in a game where both teams have to get back on track after the disappointing results in the midweek matches. With Chelsea’s defeat to Tottenham yesterday, Arsenal might have chance to get back in the hunt for the championship, but a victory today is required, if the Gunners are to keep up. We have looked at the match today and found the best betting tips, which are described in the preview below.

Arsenal lost to Tottenham

In their midweek game Arsenal lost the London derby to Tottenham and with a highly injured squad, Arsene Wenger must be feeling the pressure. For today’s match he will be missing Thomas Vermaelen, Cesc Fabregas, William Gallas, Andrey Arshavin, Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Song. This mean Arsenal must put their hope in their younger players like, Samir Nasri , Abou Diaby and Nicklas Bendtner, which usually playing well against teams from bottom of the table. At same time newly returned Robin van Persie, who looked very strong in his comeback against Tottenham, might be a deciding factor in this game.

Wigan disappoints

Wigan on the other hand failed against a poor Portsmouth team that won despite having only 8 chances to score in the FA Cup semifinal in the midweek. At the same time Wigan has only won once in the last 16 games, which speaks for itself. This said, Wigan seems free of relegation with five points to the danger zone, but only has other teams to thank for this.
If your are looking to place a Sports Bet on this game, you can currently get odds 6.50 for a Wigan win, odds 4.50 for a draw and odds 1.50 for a Arsenal win at William Hill Sports.
As apparent from the odds, Arsenal is the huge favorite in this match despite playing away, and even though they lost their last two games against Barcelona and Tottenham they should be the major favorite. Our Betting tip for the match is to back arsenal, who will likely win by more than one goal today. Last time they beat Wigan 4-0 and they usually play well against the lower placed teams. At the same time Wigan has never won against Arsenal, and is unlikely to do so in their 10 attempt.
