While Nicklas Bendtner would back himself to score in any match against anyone, Wigan at home is a fixture that would inspire confidence in any striker.
The Latics have conceded 12 in six away games and though Bendtner only has two in eight since joining Sunderland, his record against the Premier League’s weaker teams make him a good bet to be back in the goals this weekend.
The Dane is 6/5 to score anytime but with 73 per cent of his strikes over the last three seasons being last goals there’s more value to be had in backing him at 9/2 in bwin’s last goalscorer market.
New customers backing Bendtner to score last with the £25 free bet they receive when registering with bwin would win £137.50 if he does.
Should Bendtner have ‘one of those games’ that frustrated Arsenal fans, Sunderland still have enough attacking options to trouble Wigan’s suspect back line.
Stephane Sessegnon struggled to score when he arrived in English football last season, but has two in his last four and is well priced at 11/2 to add to that with another first goal, as half his previous strikes this season have been.
Dead ball specialist Seb Larsson is another player who will concern Roberto Martinez and as his spectacular finishes against Liverpool and Arsenal showed he can beat any keeper anytime, but with two-thirds of his goals coming in the second half, it’s best backing him at 8/1 in the last goalscorer market.
Even if Wigan are able to contain Steve Bruce’s side then they’ve also had problems scoring, averaging well under a goal a game, though Franco Di Santo has been a rare bright spot with three goals in nine league starts.
If he’s able to recapture his early season form the odds of 9/4 for him to score anytime are worth considering as is 4/1 for penalty-taker Ben Watson against a side who gave away six spot kicks last season.
