Get on the bookings at Molineux

Desperation is in the air for both teams, they are both major candidates for relegation and this really is a 'classic six pointer'. Both teams look lightweight up-front and Wigan at home could be Wolves best chance of three valuable points.

Wolves have not won a game since August and they are odds-on 19/20 to be victorious. The draw is 23/10 and a Wigan win is 3/1. Wigan's main problem has been finding the back of the net.

They have only netted once in their last five league games.  Rodallega was busy in the summer playing in the Copa America and the Colombian striker, is yet to open his Premier League account.

He has struggled for fitness this season and he may not have coped well with continual rumours linking him with the bigger names in the Premier League.

He is 7/1 to grab the first goal and he is 2/1 anytime scorer. He will find the net soon enough and when he starts banging in the goals, Wigan will get more points on the board.

The Latics may be unable to score but Mick McCarthy's Wolves have conceded at least two goals in each of their last seven Premier League games, including their last four at home. So, if Wigan are going to reverse the form, it could well be at Molineux.

If you think Wigan's luck may turn, you can back them -1 goals at 15/2. They are also 7/4 draw no bet. With Wolves poor at the back and Wigan ineffective in the opposition's box, it is difficult to look at the total match goal markets.

Under 2.5 goals is 4/5 and over 2.5 is 19/20. Wolves could also be without their three-goal leading scorer Fletcher, he only returned to full training on Friday, so they are weakened upfront.

The crowd have not turned on Martinez yet at Wigan but their owner Dave Whelan has come out in the press and stated that he can sack his Spanish manager. They are friendly and Martinez is respected for spurning a chance at Villa in summer, so he can progress further at the Latics. However, their form is alarming.

Wolves fans have started to turn on McCarthy, the club are playing rubbish football unlike Wigan and they were lucky to secure a 2-2 draw with Swansea recently.  Wigan have won four of their last five meetings with Wolves and they will head into this match confident of a result.

If the Latics score early, the game could get heated. Wolves cannot afford a poor result and there have been three red cards in the last three meetings between the pair. Wolves have some rash players in Hunt, O'Hara and Henry, they play direct football and they will try and rough-up Wigan.

Over three Wolves cards is 6/1 and 5/1 for a red card looks big. At 1:30 on Sunday, both teams will know the weekend results and there will be that added pressure to get a win.

In the most booking points markets, the draw is 16/5, Wigan is 4/5 and Wolves 2/1. Wigan play better football and are less likely to lose their head, if the home fans get on Wolves's back, expect them to make late and irrational challenges.

If I was to punt on the match, I would forget the goals and ninety minutes markets and concentrate on the bookings, with three reds in their last three meetings, there is history between the pair and there could be plenty of cards tomorrow.
