With both teams having lost five of their last six matches, Wigan and Bolton find themselves at the wrong end of the form table going into their clash at the DW Stadium.
In fact, Bolton are rooted to the bottom of the form and league tables having lost their last six league games, while Wigan are in the bottom three for each.
With this in mind, it is difficult to make a case for either team picking up three points, although Wigan go into the game as 6/5 favourites.
Bolton are priced at 11/5 to pick up their first points since the opening day of the season, with a draw at 23/10 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
While the result is up in the air, those predicting the game will contain fewer than 2.5 goals are on safer ground.
Eight of the last nine meetings between the two sides have contained under three goals, making odds of 4/5 on this outcome look particularly attractive.
Of the two sides, Bolton look the most likely to hit the back of the net despite being the away side.
Only seven sides in the Premier League have scored more than the nine racked up by Owen Coyle’s men, with Wigan managing just five in their seven outings.
Interestingly, seven out of the nine goals scored by Bolton have come after the interval, making them good bets to score more in the second half than they do in the first at odds of 17/10.
A successful £25 free bet on Bolton to score more goals in the second than first half would return £44.50, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
However, with the Trotters having the worst defensive record in the league by some distance, back Wigan to achieve parity and for the game to end in a draw.
With the match likely to be low scoring, a 1-1 final result therefore represents a good option at odds of 5/1.
