Wigan Athletics vs. Fulham
Saturday, September 22nd 2012, 16:00 CET
Wigan Athletic simply need to win this match. The previous match against Manchester United was truly a blood bath, with Manchester scoring no less than 4 goals in the first half. They simply couldn’t hold a glass of water.
On the other hand, Fulham comes into this match with a categorical win over West Ham, blanking them 3-0. It was Berbatov who scored the first two goals, and the mid fielder Steve Sewell completed with the 3rd.
Wigan Athletic are playing at home and I think this fact will have a strong impact on the other team’s performance. Also, judging by the statistics, Wigan is better placed than its opponent. For example, while Wigan have won 25%, drawn 35% and lost 40% of their last 20 home games, Fulham have won 20%, drawn 25% and lost 55% of their last 20 away games. While Wigan Athletic have kept a clean sheet in 30% of their last 20 home games, Fulham have kept a clean sheet in 30% of their away games. Last but not least, while Wigan have failed to score in 35% of their last 20 home games, Fulham have failed to score in 50% of their last away games.
Judging by all these aspects, I’m going to place a bet on a Wigan’s victory. I bet 3 units at 2.34. The odds I used are from IBCBET.
