These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Wigan will win

Wigan have been unstoppable this season; they are coming off seven consecutive wins, and are unbeaten in their last 18 games in all competitions. Despite having four games in hand, Wigan are still at the top of the League One table. In contrast, Cheltenham have been going through a rough patch; they are without a win in their last 10 games across all competitions. It doesn’t help that they’re going up against the best team in the league. Wigan should be able to win, considering Cheltenham’s poor form

Goals at both end

Although Cheltenham have struggled to win games, they haven’t had too much difficulty finding the net; Cheltenham have scored in five of their last seven games. It’s fair to include that Cheltenham have conceded in all of their last 10 games. Just like Cheltenham, Wigan have conceded their fair share of goals; they’ve allowed at least one goal in four of their last five games, whilst scoring in all of their last 15 games. Both teams have scored in five of Cheltenham’s last seven, and eight of Wigan’s last 10 games. For these reasons, we believe that both teams will find the back of the net.

Plenty to celebrate

Our final pick for this game will be on the over/under goals market. Wigan have been one of the highest scoring teams in the league this season; only Sunderland have scored more goals than Wigan, and Sunderland have played four more games than Wigan. Wigan have scored 20 goals in their last seven games, that’s almost 3 goals per game on average. Wigan’s games have mostly been on the high-scoring side as a result; six of their last seven games went over 2.5, with four of those games going over 4.5. Considering Cheltenham have scored in five of their last seven games, we should expect some goals here.

The best odds for Cheltenham vs Wigan

Cheltenham vs Wigan: Team Overview


Cheltenham have not won a game since November last year; they’ve drawn five, and lost five of the 10 games they’ve played in the last two months. Michael Duff will need to turn things around if he intends to keep his job; he’ll look to Alfie May to help right his team’s wrongs.


Wigan have been on fire the past couple of months; they have won seven in a row, and are unbeaten in their last 18 games across all competitions. Leam Richardson’s men will be eyeing their eighth consecutive win as they visit a struggling Cheltenham side; it’s worth keeping an eye on Will Keane.
