Wigan v Wolves Tip

1pt Wolves to win 11/2 with Paddypower Place Bet

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.
