Man City’s recent form could be the reason why both Wigan and the draw are showing up as ValueChecker Value Bets for tonight’s game. The value bets are calculated on a statistical analysis of previous results and out of the home win and the draw it appears that a Wigan win is the best value, that outcome has been assigned a value rating of 0.15 with the suggestion that Wigan should be closer to 4.23 to win at home rather than the current odds of 9.00. The draw has a value rating of 0.14 with ValueChecker reckoning the odds should be more like 3.44 rather than 4.63.

The Wigan ValueChecker wikis should offer some strong pointers for good bets in this match, one of the main themes running through Wigan’s wikis is their lack of goals. Last season no team who stayed in the division scored fewer goals than Wigan (40) whilst the season before Wigan scored just 37 goals, that’s less than one a match on average. It would make sense therefore to look at betting opportunities involving a clean sheet for Man City.

Man City are short odds to win this game and Wigan’s ValueChecker wikis could show us how to boost the odds on a Man City win. For the last two season’s Wigan’s most common home half time result has been a draw with ten half time draws in both seasons. Considering this season Man City have score 18 first half goals and 38 second half goals a bet on Draw/Man City could be an attractive and value proposition.
