Leeds v Wigan Betting Tips, Preview and Predictions

Leeds should be too strong for Wigan in their English Championship fixture at Elland Road. The Whites are back at the top of the table and with Patrick Bamford back among the goals, are favoured to ease past the relegation threatened Latics.

Leeds Form


Leeds earned a superb come from behind victory over Millwall in their previous Championship fixture. Having gone into the break two goals down, they struck three times in the second half with Patrick Bamford netting a brace while Pablo Hernandez was also on target.

The win took Leeds two points clear at the top of the table. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have maintained a solid home record this season and head into Saturday’s match with seven wins in their last 10 matches at Elland Road.

Striker Patrick Bamford remains the top scorer for Leeds United with 12 goals this season.

Wigan Form


Wigan are coming off a rare win as they claimed a 2-1 victory over Sheffield Wednesday last time out in the Championship. They fought back from a goal down with efforts from Kieffer Moore and Jamal Lowe earning them the victory.

The result ended a run of three straight defeats for the Latics who still remain deep in the relegation trouble, four points from safety. Paul Cook’s men have also struggled on the road with three defeats in their last four away matches.
