Wigan Premier League 2012/13 Betting PreviewEnglish Premier League, Football Betting Tips
Despite chairman Dave Whelan’s many interviews with Sky Sports and Roberto Martinez starts the season as Wigan manager.
Last season’s remarkable run-in which produced the scalps of Arsenal and Manchester United has perpetuated Wigan’s Premier League status for another year – but can the achievement be replicated yet again?
Spanish defender Ivan Ramis (pictured) and Arouna Kone will both add to Martinez’ options this season. But the depatures of Hugo Roddalega (Fulham), Mohamed Diamé (West Ham) and Victor Moses (imminent) have seriously weakened the squad.
You can rely on…
A slow start and a late season surge in form.
Where should your money go?
After losing, or set to lose, their most prominent attacking options Wigan again look set to struggle and they are a fair price of 6/4 to go down.
If you fancy another Martinez miracle then it is 5/4 for Wigan to finish in the top 15 or just short of Evens for the Latics to get over 36 points.
Did you know…?
Wigan were a non-league side up until 1978.
