Derby County vs Wigan (By: MDG)
There are only 11 rounds left in Championship after this one so Frank Lampard's Derby County FC must win this home match against Wigan Athletic. There's a clear chance for Derby to connect multiple home wins because their next three rounds are all home games against Sheffield Wed, Stoke and Rotherham but this first step is of massive importance. Sheffield are 13th, Stoke 16th and Rotherham on 22nd place trying to stay away from relegation with good chances to do so.
None of those upcoming home games will be easy, Wigan could theoretically be the easiest opponent out of the four so beating them is crucial. Wigan scored only 1 goal in last four games and after 4 straight draws they should lose here.
Head to head wise, Wigan haven't scored a single goal against Derby over last 4 games.

Derby County lost their last 4 games in Championship and now they're out of the top 6 so winning first out of the next 4 home rounds is so important for the playoffs.
In away games this season Wigan are ranked second from bottom only above the worst away side Ipswich. Wigan's away record this season is 1W 3D 12L.
Derby County are without some important players and this is why odds are so high. Opening odds were 1.72 on 24th of February from Pinnacle but after Derby's losing streak continued and those injuries piled up, odds skyrocketed to 2.00+.
