Betting tip: Back Huddersfield to see off Wigan in the Championship.
Huddersfield Town will this Monday welcome the visit of Wigan Athletic to the John Smith’s Stadium, and it’s the home side who are tipped to pick up all three points.
A home win for David Wagner’s side is just 1/1 with bet365 this week, while an away win for Wigan is 3/1. A draw between the two teams is 11/5.
Huddersfield enter the fray this week knowing that they need to win if they are to keep pace with the frontrunners in the Championship, having recorded just one win in their last six league outings. Such form leaves the club sitting fourth in proceedings having led the table for much of the opening part of the season, and leaves the side at a crossroads between continuing to mix it with the big boys and falling down the table to their move-expected ranking. Regardless of the outcome, Huddersfield will be led on the pitch by lead strikers Nahki Wells and Elias Kachunga this week, with Wells looking for his fourth goal of the campaign and Kachunga his fifth. The German is 21/10 to score with bet365, however it’s Wells who is the 8/5 favourite to grace the scoresheet with bet365.
Wigan on the other hand have battled to adapt to life back in the Championship this season with little success, with the club sitting just 23rd with 17 games already played. A goalless draw with Barnsley last weekend did little to improve matters for the club, while just one win in their last seven outings explains all you need to know about why Wigan are where they are in the table. Despite all that, in Will Grigg they have a striker capable of scoring against anyone in the league, and the Northern Irishman will be looking to do just that this week at the expense of Huddersfield. Grigg has scored five times already this season and is 12/5 to score again with bet365 this weekend.
Back Huddersfield to see off Wigan 2-0 this week and Kachunga to score anytime at 15/1 with bet365.
A safer bet lies with Huddersfield to win to nil at 21/10.
