BETTING PREVIEW: Wigan Athletic v Coventry City - The Sky Blues are the outside choice at 19/5 for the away trip to the Latics

8 April 2016

We look at the weekend's betting odds as the Sky Blues prepare to face top of the table Wigan in a Saturday's afternoon kick-off...

Coventry City travel to Wigan on Saturday, with the league leaders looking to consolidate their position at the summit of League One.

Wigan are odds on to claim the victory at 7/10, while the Sky Blues are priced at 19/5. It is 13/5 for the game to end in a draw.


City claimed a 2-0 victory over Wigan on the opening day of the season and if Mowbray’s side were to replicate the same scoreline, you could get a price of 25/1.

Extend your chances with a correct score group bet, as Coventry to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 comes in at 5/1.

Or the home side to win 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1 is at 13/8. 


Full time result and total goals markets are a popular one, Coventry and under 2.5 goals in the match is 8/1. 

Wigan and over 2.5 goals during the 90 minutes is 13/8. 

With the game likely to contain goals, goalscorer markets could prove fruitful. Conor McAleny is at 9/2 as your first scorer. 

The Sky Blues welcome the return of Adam Armstrong to the squad, he is priced at 13/2 as first goalscorer or 9/4 to net within 90 minutes. The 19-year old striker has scored two (or more) in a game seven times this season and is priced at 5/1 to score a brace.

Or if you feel ultra confident, it's 22/1 for the Newcastle loanee to claim his second hat-trick of the season.


PICK OF THE DAY: Yanic Wildschut and Jacob Murphy both to score 14/1.
