Wigan were worthy winners against Bournemouth in the last round of the FA Cup and are fancied to claim another Premier League scalp when hosting West Ham.
The Latics look a League One club in name only after opening up a five-point gap at the top of the table and lifted this trophy as recently as 2013.
A Look At Wigan Athletic’s Betting Odds
Wigan almost beat Bournemouth at the first attempt, when only conceding a 92nd-minute equaliser at Vitality Stadium, but they made no mistake when deserved 3-0 victors at this venue in the replay.
That was an 18th clean sheet of the season and Paul Cook’s side went on to stretch their unbeaten run to 14 games in all competitions with Saturday’s 3-1 triumph at Plymouth.
Argyle took the lead from the penalty spot, but Latics hit back through Will Grigg, Gavin Massey and Dan Burn, playing with great confidence.
Former Manchester United player Nick Powell, once a £4million signing from Crewe in 2012, adds another attacking threat from midfield and it’s easy to see why Wigan are averaging two goals per game this term.
Looking at the Wigan vs West Ham odds, 18/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the games makes sense.
A Look At West Ham United’s Betting Odds
West Ham laboured past Shrewsbury in the last round and are clearly more focused on top-flight survival than securing a good cup run.
The Hammers could be forgiven for a goalless draw at New Meadow when playing for the third time in five days.
However, only scraping through the replay via a 1-0 win in extra-time suggested they are there for the taking in this tournament.
David Moyes’ side are unbeaten in five Premier League games, but they are still only four points clear of the drop zone and upcoming clashes with Crystal Palace, Brighton and Watford could be crucial.
United have the firepower going forward to pose problems, but 9/2 for a home win and both teams to score gets the nod in our Wigan vs West Ham betting tips.
