Wigan Athletic-Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview: The Welsh wonder to inspire the visitors to victory

With Spurs demolishing Man City in a seven-minute spell on Sunday, they travel to Lancashire in a game both sides are desperate to win, with our tipster picking out a 11/4 bet
Tottenham Hotspur travel to Wigan Athletic with both sides fighting their own battles which are likely to go all the way to the last game of the season. Visitors Tottenham currently sit in fifth position in the Premier league, just one point behind Chelsea, and two points behind Arsenal, but with a game in hand over the Gunners in the race for Champions League qualification.

Spurs head to the North West after a sensational comeback against Manchester City last Sunday.

A Gareth Bale inspired performance saw them come from a goal down to net three quick fire strikes and record a much needed win at White Hart Lane.

Andre Villas Boas' men have been strong away from home this season, with only one defeat in their last eight away matches, including five wins, the price of 21/20 (2.05) with Paddy Power seems like a fantastic price.

Wigan Athletic come into this game on the back of two away defeats. The Latics are somewhat known as the escape artists, but the FA Cup finalists have a real struggle on their hands with a tough run-in this season.

Roberto Martinez’s men sit in the final relegation place and are three points behind Aston Villa in 17th. Wigan are understandably the underdogs with Paddy Power at 13/5 (3.60) to record a valuable three points. The same firm prices the draw at 12/5 (3.40)

The anytime goal scoring market provides an excellent bet for this game.

Tottenham’s man of the moment, Gareth Bale, has netted nine in his last nine league games for Spurs and the price of evens (2.00) for him to score in 90 minutes with Paddy Power is unmissable.

The Wales international had been out with an injury, but returned in style on Sunday to score the third and final goal against Manchester City.

For those looking for extra value, the winning margin is worth looking at. As previously stated, Spurs have been strong on the road this season, but they have certainly made hard work of some of their matches.

In the last eight matches that Villas Boas' men have won away from home, six of them have been by the single goal. With Wigan sure to put up a stubborn resistance, the price of 11/4 (3.75) for Tottenham to win by one goals seems like a fantastic price.
