In fact, because Grant McCann’s mob were 7-0 (seven) down at half time we decided to pull the trigger on Paddy’s earliest-ever Justice Refund payout during the break. That meant all pre-match singles placed on Hull were winging their way back to punters after 45 minutes at the DW Stadium on Tuesday.
A 7-0 win for Wigan at full-time would’ve been priced at 200/1 and we decided enough was enough before the Latics went on to grab their eighth of the game in the second half.
Paddy said: “Hull didn’t bother turning up tonight, so we won’t bother counting the bets on them. Backing Hull, punters didn’t stand a chance – more like sigh of the Tigers after this one.”

Paddy’s punters will not have to count the cost of The Tigers’ toothless performance but it’s a different story for McCann and his cubs. They’re 22nd in the Championship, the final relegation spot, with just two games to go.
They face a do-or-die clash with fellow relegation candidates Luton on Saturday while Wigan’s amazing battle against adversity, with the threat of a 12-point deduction hanging over their heads, continues against Charlton.
After dishing out that mauling to The Tigers, Paul Cook’s men could actually do Hull a favour by beating the team that sits one place ahead of them in the Championship ahead of Wednesday evening’s clashes.
