Leeds are gunning for a third consecutive win and with Norwich only managing to share the points in their last two games the gap between the two now sits at just four points. Victory over Wigan will leave them one point adrift of the Canaries who take on Sheffield Wednesday in the late kick-off on Friday. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and if you are after some Easter value then check out our massive selection of enhanced odds available in our FanBoosts section.
Leeds Expected To Get The Points
Come kick-off, the pressure may well be on Leeds to regain second place should the Blades overcome Forest in the earlier start.
However, that doesn’t seem like too much of a challenging task given they’ve already beaten Wigan in the reverse fixture this season back at Elland Road, while the Latics are hovering just one place above the relegation zone.
Indeed, Paul Cook’s men have been the worst travellers in the league this season, earning just seven points from 21 outings as their only victory came in just their second trip of the season at 16th-placed Stoke, while only Blackburn have conceded more than their 42 goals on the road so far.
Moreover, they’ve lost four of five winless outings to the current breakaway top-three sides across all venues, as their only point came at the DW Stadium against a Norwich side without star midfielder Emiliano Buendia.
Leeds v Wigan Betting Tips
The Whites are on a current run of 10 wins from their last 13 outings on home turf as their only slip-ups have come against a Hull side in the midst of a six-game winning run over December and January, as well as versus fellow top-three outfits Norwich and Sheffield Utd.
That’s hugely impressive, especially since they’ve netted at least twice in eight of those wins, as six of the last eight of those victories saw at least three strikes.
Meanwhile, Wigan have seen more than two goals in six of their last eight outings, including each of their last five on the road, and so we’d be surprised to not see Marcelo Bielsa’s men fire at least a few past them.
Meanwhile, with just three clean sheets from their 11 games here since December, the visitors could well sneak a strike.
