Match analysis from Sunderland betting partner Bet Butler:

Wigan 2.15 | Draw 3.4| Sunderland 3.6

Wigan have lost six times at home this season and have conceded at least two goals in 11 of their last 12 home matches. Since the start of last season the Latics have won just three home games against sides currently in the bottom half, losing five times.

Four of Sunderland’s five away defeats have come against current top-eight sides. In addition, they’ve won their two trips to current bottom-eight sides and last season won four of seven matches at bottom-eight finishers.

Sunderland can be backed for an away win at 3.60

Betting on goals could also be a wise choice in this game as seven of Wigan’s last 13 home games have seen at least four goals.

It’s also worth noting that five of Sunderland’s last six away games have featured at least three goals. Finally - Sunderland have scored in six of their last eight trips to bottom-six teams while 10 out of 23 of Wigan’s home matches have seen four goals or more when they’ve conceded.

Over 3.5 match goals (four goals or more) can be backed at 3.50. Correct score Wigan 1 – Sunderland 3 is also worth a cheeky punt at 29.0.

Steven Fletcher is once again the favourite to score first at 6.50.
