Even so, the fact that the Latics have a chance of staying in the Premier League is a minor miracle when you consider they have taken just 20 points from 27 games, although Roberto Martinez’s side have been fractionally more comfortable on the road than the DW Stadium.
Wigan have claimed three away wins this season and the bookies offer 7/2 (Bet Victor free bets) about the Lancashire side making a big stride towards safety by landing the three points in east Anglia.
It does require a leap of faith to back the visitors considering they have lost six of their last nine games, although the last away trip saw Athletic claim a 2-1 victory at Bolton and a repeat scoreline is a 16/1 chance (Ladbrokes bookmaker).
Norwich City have 15 more points than their opponents and can be backed at a best price 10/11 (Ladbrokes) to claim victory in this game, although they are far from home bankers having won just 5 of their 13 games in front of their own supporters.
Paul Lambert’s team are also coming off the back of three defeats although the Canaries were pretty good when losing 2-1 to Manchester United a fortnight ago, with Grant Holt scoring a spectacular goal and the forward is a 5/1 chance to score the first goal of this game.
The teams played out a 1-1 draw on the opening day of the season and you can get 13/5 (bet365) about the game ending all square which offers better value than the home side at odds-on.
