Arsenal-Wigan Athletic Betting Preview: Expect goals in this match with the visitors to fight for their lives

With both sides still having it all to play for, expect an open encounter at the Emirates, with Hugh Wilson backing goals and has a 2/1 value bet
After an unforgettable weekend for FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic, they travel to north London knowing they need to come away with at least a point to avoid relegation, albeit their poor goal difference essentially means they need all three from their trip after Newcastle United, Norwich City and Sunderland all scored points on Sunday.

Arsenal come into this match just outside of the Champions League positions after a late Tottenham Hotspur win at Stoke City.

A stoppage-time Ben Watson header on Saturday saw Roberto Martinez’s men pull off a huge shock against Manchester City to win the FA Cup at Wembley.

Martinez’s men now turn their attention back to the Premier League, with their survival hopes hanging by a thread.

The Latics trail Sunderland by four points with two matches remaining for the Lancashire side. Martinez’s men are once again huge underdogs for the win, with Bet365 pricing them at 7/1 (8.00) to come away with victory.

After a weekend where both their rivals picked up three points, nothing short of a win this evening will be good enough for Arsenal.

The Gunners do have the power to determine their final position, with two matches to play, compared to Spurs' one. Only two points separate the two sides, who are both fighting for that final Champions League position. Arsene Wenger’s men are favourites at 2/5 (1.40) with Bet365 to win and jump back above Spurs. The same firm prices the draw at 9/2 (5.50).

Both sides haven’t found goals hard to come by in recent weeks, with the teams both finding the net nine times in their last 11 matches.

The both teams to score bet at 4/6 (1.66) with Bet365 seems like a fantastic price. This bet would have paid out in five of Arsenal’s last six home games, and with all to play for in the league for both teams, you can expect an open game.

For those looking for more value, Wigan/Draw double chance stands out at 2/1 (3.00) with Bet365.

When the two sides met in April last season, Wigan were in a similar position with it all to do to survive in the league. On that night they scored two early goals in a 2-1 victory at the Emirates. This bet would have won had you backed it in the Gunners last two home matches, as well as 10 out of the last 13 Wigan away matches.
