Bournemouth left it late when surviving a major scare in their first clash with Wigan but are fancied to make the most of that reprieve in Wednesday night’s FA Cup replay.
The Cherries needed Steve Cook’s 92nd-minute header to keep them in this competition but had earlier created a whole host of chances in that entertaining encounter.
A Look At Wigan Athletic’s Betting Odds
Wigan, FA Cup winners as recently as 2013, belied their League One status when taking a 2-0 lead at Vitality Stadium, although they did enjoy good fortune with Nick Powell’s deflected free-kick.
Latics will look back on a penalty decision that went against them, with Ivan Toney going down in the box after a fine break when the score was 2-1.
However, manager Paul Cook did admit: “I think Bournemouth’s momentum and weight of pressure has seen them equalise, probably fairly.”
Although still three points clear in their own division, the Latics have had to settle for three straight draws at this venue of late and look vulnerable versus better opposition.
Looking at the Wigan vs Bournemouth odds, 15/4 for the visitors to prevail by a one-goal margin takes the eye.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth made eight changes for the opening encounter with Wigan, but they still dominated proceedings, having 60 per cent of the possession.
The match stats show the Cherries 19-7 ahead on goal attempts, with a 7-1 advantage in the shots on target department and 10 corners won against five conceded.
Wigan were grateful to keeper Christian Walton for some excellent saves, as Bournemouth carved their opponents apart at the back time and time again.
Howe is again set to shuffle his pack but will also be keen to maintain the momentum of Sunday’s 2-1 triumph over Arsenal, which gave them eight points from the last four Premier League fixtures.
The Cherries also beat Everton 2-1 recently and 19/2 for a repeat of that scoreline here is worth adding to our Wigan vs Bournemouth betting tips.
