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

Mark Lawrenson has gone for a 1-0 home win at the Upton Park on Saturday. The BBC pundit is currently lying 6th in the Cockney Latic Prediction League and that shows that he knows his stuff.

He said about his prediction; This is a game West Ham cannot lose. They’ve just lost their assistant manager, Avram Grant is under real pressure and he will have circled this game as a must-win fixture.
I just don’t know about this Wigan team, they are so inconsistent. So for this reason, it’s a home win for me.

Of the Prediction League users (sponsored by Workit Recruitment) 26% are going for 1-2 win to Latics, 16/1 on Betfair. It is no doubt a massive game for both teams as they look to get a win and some much needed points under their belts.

Latics will be without key players whilst the Hammers will be welcoming back theirs, but the pressure could tell as the unforgiving Boleyn Ground will soon get on the home team’s back if things don’t go well
