Southampton v Wigan Tips & Odds PreviewEnglish Premier League, Football Betting Tips
Saturday 25 August 2012, KO 15.00
Both these teams impressed on the opening weekend against tough opposition. Southampton didn’t read the script and gave champions Manchester City a scare, leading 2-1 before losing 3-2.
While Wigan recovered from a disastrous opening ten minutes to hold their own against Chelsea, with Victor Moses arguably the best player on the pitch
Wigan could represent some value at 5/2 but it’s hard to justify backing the Latics until they prove their defensive capabilities. One man who looks set to test those is Southampton’s Rickie Lambert and the veteran striker is a good value 2/1 to score first.
Both teams will feel this is a game they need to win if they are to stay up, however, the draw looks the best bet at 23/10.
