How do the experts see Wigan Athletic’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, let’s have a look at how the pundits and bookies see this game going at the weekend….

Mark Lawrenson has for the first time since the opening game, gone for a Latics win at the DW Stadium on Saturday. The BBC pundit has gone for a 2-1 home win and he is currently lying 6th in the Cockney Latic Prediction League and that shows that he knows his stuff.

He said about his prediction; Neither of these two teams have enjoyed the best start this season but Wolves, for one, are not a bad side at all. They are certainly competitive but the trouble is they don’t score many goals – a fact underlined by last week’s loss to Aston Villa when they probably deserved more.

Not scoring enough goals is something that can often change against Wigan… but I don’t think so this weekend. Bearing in mind the Latics’ draw and clean sheet against Birmingham last week – which came on the back of a home win over Preston in the Carling Cup – I just fancy the hosts in this one.

Of the Prediction League users (sponsored by Workit Recruitment) 30% are going for 2-0 to Latics, 12/1 on Betfair. Latics need to start gaining points at home, it is what let us down last season as gaining points at home makes life so much easier.
