How do the experts see Wigan Athletic’s game against Hull City, let’s have a look at how the pundits, prediction league users and bookies see this game going on Bank Holiday Monday….

Mark Lawrenson has gone for a 2-1 win to Latics at the DW Stadium on Monday. The BBC pundit has consistently come in the top ten in the Cockney Latic Prediction League and currently lies 4th.

He said about his prediction; “This could have been a monster game for both clubs but with how things have turned out, it’s been tough for Hull – and it has been for 18 months now.
I know George Boateng made a big deal the other day about what happened in the Manchester City game last season and how that caused all the problems, but you don’t need to say that – why didn’t he say it at the time?
Hull have got nothing to play for as they are all but relegated, and Wigan may be looking at dismantling their side. Hugo Rodallega and Maynor Figueroa may leave Wigan but manager Roberto Martinez will be better for this season, he’s had a real learning experience.
Prediction: 2-1, and possibly not the biggest crowd of the day.
