Wigan vs Southampton – FA Cup: On the FA Cup’s quarter-finals, Wigan hosts Southampton at the DW Stadium.
We have an encounter between two teams from different divisions here
Wigan is currently playing on League One, the third tier of English football, while Southampton is on the Premier League. Wigan sits in 2nd place with 71 points and they are on their way to return to the Championship.
On the FA Cup, the team has made a demolishing campaign. They have already eliminated 3 Premier League teams: Bournemouth, West Ham and Manchester City. Southampton, on the other hand, has been struggling on the Premier League.
And they are not remotely close to remind us of the team they were on the last couple of seasons. The team sits in 17th place, near the relegation zone. On the FA Cup, the team has already eliminated Fulham, Watford and West Bromwich.

The Cups are generally the competitions that bring us the most surprises. Even when they involve teams with completely different realities, like in this case. And this is not a novelty for anyone.
But this Wigan can already be considered a little bit more than a surprise. Even playing two tiers below at the moment, on League One, the team has already knocked out 3 Premier League opponents on this FA Cup.
Wigan vs Southampton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
And between them were no less than Manchester City. On the other hand, we have a Southampton that is not even closely reminiscing of what they were in previous seasons but that are still being overvalued by the bookies.
I believe that the home side will not lose here. Therefore, the AH +0.5 or the “Double Chance” favouring the hosts is my selection here.
This Wigan has already shown that they are very capable and Southampton not so much.
|Wigan AH +0,5||
