Wigan v Wolves Tip

10th May 2012 | Football

Previously billed as a relegation decider, the outcome of Wigan v Wolves is largely immaterial with one team safe and the other sunk. The bookmakers have priced up the Latics as 8/13 (Betfred) favourites, a reaction to their recent results, but with nothing at stake, form can go out the window.

There is likely to be a party atmosphere at the DW Stadium as fans celebrate another great escape. Judging by Dave Whelan’s delighted comments after the Blackburn game, it could be the culmination of a whole week of festivities! Wigan’s end of season awards were dished-out on Wednesday night and after a tough relegation battle, the players can be forgiven for relaxing before the season is technically over. 

Wolves only have pride to play for but judging by their last two performances this is ample motivation. There was an excellent comeback against Swansea followed by a spirited display to hold in-form Everton. Several of the Wolves’ squad will be playing for their futures, many secretly hoping it could be in the Premier League with a different team next year.

Manager Terry Connor also has an incentive to keep his team focused, as he would hate to finish his tenure without a win to his name. The ambitions of manager and players might diverge slightly, but both will see a win at Wigan as an opportunity to put themselves in the shop window.

At 11/2 (PaddyPower), Wolves are good value to finish a disappointing season on a high.

Selhurst Set For Title Deciders

Palace have won five in a row and now welcome Manchester City and Liverpool to their intimidating ground in consecutive weeks.

Heavyweights Slug It Out in Lisbon

The Champions League semi-final first legs ended 0-0 and 1-0. We should expect a similarly tentative opening exchange between Benfica and Juventus.

La Liga Leaders Can Claim Advantage

Chelsea lost 3-1 away to PSG in the last round and still progressed so a narrow defeat in Spain may be verging on acceptable to Mourinho.

Everton Starting To Flag

In their last six matches Everton have conceded 17.6 shots per game on average. Those numbers suggest a draw is more likely than a home win.

Snodgrass Norwich’s Main Man

Averages 2.4 shots per game and a goal scoring threat especially if he reprises the more central attacking role he fulfilled against Fulham last week.

First Goalscorer Special

If your losing 1st goalscorer scores the 2nd or 3rd goal, Paddy Power will refund your stake as a free bet. All Saturday 3pm matches.
