MK Dons vs Wigan in League One on Mar 12. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

MK Dons vs Wigan in League One on Mar 12. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

It’s second versus third in League One this weekend as MK Dons, fresh from a superb victory over table-topping Rotherham, host a Wigan side who have started the month with back-to-back wins and clean sheets.

The Dons have stormed up the table, thanks to a run of just one defeat in their last 13 games, including wins in each of their last four. Those victories are all the more impressive when you take into account who they came against, with Sunderland, Rotherham and Charlton all finding Milton Keynes too hot to handle.

Wigan’s progress was checked a fortnight ago by a 3-0 home defeat to Sunderland, but they’ve since bounced back with victories over Fleetwood and AFC Wimbledon, so we have two sides in decent nick coming together this weekend.

So, stay tuned as we crunch the numbers and deliver our expert football betting tips for the third-tier clash.

MK Dons Win and Both Teams to Score

The manner of MK Don’s victory at Rotherham last Saturday makes it very difficult to turn them down this weekend.

The Dons were a man and a goal down after Daniel Harvie was sent off for a foul in the penalty area and Millers man Daniel Barlaser put the hosts ahead. Game, set, match, Rotherham, surely?

But MK had other ideas, turning things around with two goals in three second-half minutes to secure three points for the fourth straight game and seventh time in nine matches.

And they’ve only lost once at home in 2022, while Wigan’s away form has nosedived recently. Since a run of ten wins in eleven on the road, the Latics have won just one of their following five, firing blanks in three of them.

But their last away trip delivered a 3-1 win at Wycombe, so now their shooting boots are back on, we think they can find the net in an MK Dons Win and BTTS double, which is available at a very juicy 9/2 with Sportnation and with most of the popular sports betting websites.

MK Dons Form, squad news, opinion

There were pre-season whispers that MK Dons could make a push for the play-offs this season after showing flashes of quality in their mid-table finish last season.

But after an average start to this campaign they’ve really stepped things up a notch, and a win over Wigan here would give them real belief that they can pip the visitors to the second automatic promotion spot to the Championship.

They’ve dealt well with the departure of youngster Matt O’Riley, who looked an absolute gem with seven goals and six assists in the first half of the season, before the 20-year-old departed for Celtic in January.

Could that departure catch up with them? Possibly, but the likes of Mo Eisa and Scott Twine continue to do their bit on the goals front.

Manager Liam Manning has no fresh injury worries ahead of this crunch clash.

Wigan Form, squad news, opinion

Some may say that Wigan are looking over their shoulders, but with two games in hand over Rotherham, boss Leam Richardson will be gearing his side up for a tilt at top spot.

And although we’ve plumped for an MK win here, the Latics are certainly capable of going on the sort of run that served them so well between October and the end of January.

That sequence saw them go 20 games without defeat, and while that run came to an end courtesy of back-to-back defeats in league and cup, they’ve lost just one in seven since then.

But having been beaten already by MK Dons this season, plus the form the hosts come into this one in, we just can’t turn down the value on offer for Wigan to taste defeat here.

Max Power and Glen Rea both limped off during Wigan’s win over Wimbledon last weekend and they could join Jordan Cousins and Charlie Wyke on the sidelines for this one.

History

Due to MK Don’s relatively short history as a club, there isn’t a huge deal to speak of between these two in terms of head-to-heads.

The two have met seven times, with Wigan picking up four wins to MK’s two. Their only draw came in their first meeting, back in 2014.

About the Venue

Stadium MK is very young in the stadium world, having opened in 2007 to host the newly formed MK Dons, who had been founded in controversial circumstances three years earlier.

A rather interesting quirk is that the record attendance for this stadium wasn’t for a football match. 30,048 were crammed in for the 2015 Rugby World Cup clash between Fiji and Uruguay.

Conclusion

This match could really go either way, but with MK Dons whopping 9/4 to win outright on home soil, we just have to go with the side in slightly better form.

Dons should be galvanized by their superb win at Rotherham – who hadn’t lost at home in six months – and that momentum could well get them over the line here, in what should be an entertaining game.
