Football Betting Tips: Late in the season, eighth-place West Bromwich Albion is secure in the middle of the standings. They haven’t been the most consistent in form, though. Their last 6 games have been evenly split: 2 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses.

10 places below, Wigan Athletic is now a candidate for relegation at 18th. There is still hope though, as they are just two points behind Aston Villa. Just like West Brom, heir form has also been inconsistent, with two wins, draws, and losses.


It is a desperate time in the late-season as Wigan Athletic fight for survival in the Premier League. Things haven’t been going well for them, as they conceded late goals against most of their recent opponents, turning near-wins into draws and near-draws into losses.

One such instance was in Wigan’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, as a goalkeeping error by Joel Robles and an own goal by Emmerson Boyce cost them the win. However, Wigan Manager Roberto Martinez remains confident in his team and believes they can survive to fight another season in the top league.

West Bromwich Albion, on the other hand, are safe from relegation but aren’t in the contention for a European competition spot, either. The few remaining games probably won’t affect the club much, regardless of results.

In order to survive, Wigan must eliminate individual errors that seem to cost them so much. Consistency is the key to successful League runs, and it’s especially apparent with only a few games to go in the season., a leading online sportsbook in Malaysia, gives the Wigan Athletic underdogs a 0.5 goal advantage. To win a bet on the favored West Bromwich, the Baggies must win by at least one goal.
