Wigan to beat Crewe (12:30)
Wigan showed what they are capable of in midweek as they came from behind to beat title contenders Sunderland 2-1 at home, so this price feels long.
That was the Latics’ second straight victory and lifted them out of the relegation zone, where they have a one-point buffer on Northampton.
Crewe’s season, meanwhile, has fizzled out into nothing after a run of just three victories in their last 10 matches.
