Well i haven't seen that much of Wigan yet and i know they have some injuries, but i still rate them based on what i have seen. Cas for me are at any time likely to come up with a big performance against a big team, but also Wigan are capable of racking up points for fun when they get in the mood, On paper even allowing for injuries Wigan are a class above, It's more about which Cas turn up for me.

If Chase was missing then I'd go for Wigan +12 without a worry. Wigan's pack is depleted and as much as I rate the young lads the lack of experience will tell eventually and limit the space for our admittedly superior back line.

You're right. Wigan generally batter Cas in this fixture. I like the way Cas seem to be building a defiant team spirit this season so far though. They've already picked up three more points at home than most people thought they would.

The only recent battering since Cas returned to the top flight was last season;
2012: 4 - 46
2011: 22 - 22
2010: 22 - 36
2009: 26 - 29
2008: 22 - 22

Its a very tough fixture for Wigan.

Many of those are closer than I thought. Significantly, not one defeat for Wigan though. When did that last happen in this fixture?

2006.

Wigan also lost at the DW/JJB in 2006 and 2009.

Cas at +10 on Bet365. Think I'd want 14 or more to tempt me.

Sky Bet had +12 yesterday, I'd have taken +8.

I know we're getting on OK but that's a bit too soon for me.

Just my luck...you think you have a good thing and a Welshman spoils it.

16-22. Surely it can't be the third 22-22 draw at Cas since 2008?
