Tottenham’s push for a top-four finish has stuttered of late, meaning Harry Redknapp’s men will be keen to get back to winning ways at Wigan.
Spurs have gone three games without a win in the Premier League, with a loss at Blackpool followed by draws against Wolves and West Ham.
They now sit four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, albeit with a game in hand, but will have a good chance to claim all three points at the DW Stadium against bottom-of-the-table Wigan.
Wigan have won just two of their last 12 games and are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table.
As such, Spurs are priced at 5/4 to get back to winning ways, with Wigan 41/20 to pick up a valuable three points.
That said, even if Spurs do win they are unlikely to keep a clean sheet. The Lilywhites have kept just one clean sheet in their last 16 away matches.
This spells good news for Hugo Rodallega, Wigan’s top scorer in the Premier League this season.
The Columbian is in line to make the Latics’ starting line-up having missed the 2-1 win over Birmingham before the international break.
With seven league goals so far this season he has three more than Tom Cleverley and Charles N’Zogbia, his nearest rivals at Wigan, and is priced at 19/10 to add to his tally against Spurs.
A successful £10 bet on Rodallega to score against Tottenham at bwin would return £29.
However, Wigan’s defensive record is also suspect, meaning Spurs are likely to win with something to spare.
The Latics have not kept a clean sheet at the DW Stadium in any of their last eight games and shipped 12 goals to Tottenham in the teams’ two encounters in the 2009/10 season.
As such, Jermain Defoe could be a good bet to notch up his 100th Premier League goal at 7/5, particularly given the fact he has struck ten times in ten Premier League games against Wigan.
