Manchester United can take a massive step towards finishing off the title race tonight when they travel to the JJB Stadium to take on Wigan. A maximum 3 points for United would leave them needing just the 1 point from their remaining two games, starting with a home fixture against Arsenal on Saturday.
United look set to make changes again with the likes of Ferdinand, Neville, O’Shea, Scholes, Anderson and Rooney none of whom started last Saturday set to come in and freshen things up.
Wigan who reached the so-called safety threshold of 40 points some weeks ago seem to only have been going through the motions lately. Recent form has not been great and they have only managed 2 goals and 1 point in their last five games.
It’s hard to see any chance for them tonight against a United side who will be reved up by Ferguson to get the league wrapped up as soon as possible so that they can concentrate on the Champions League Final.
From a betting point of few you can’t really back Wigan in this form and surely at a best price of 1/3 United are too short. An alternative bet might be United HT/FT at 5/6 with Blue Square, Paddy Power, Sky Bet, William Hill and 888sport as expect United to want to get the job done early.
