Barnsley is one of the pleasant surprises of this year’s Championship, sitting 9th with 34 points, with a 40-35 goal difference. Their attacking force is especially good, second only to Newcastle in the division. They’ve won 4 of their last 5 games, but only 2 of the last 5 they’ve played at their home ground. Another thing worth mentioning about their season so far is that 14 of their 23 games had at least 3 goals scored, with a 3.3 goals per game average. A very spectacular team, which is also in fine form.
On the other hand, Birmingham was very close to a playoff spot, but two defeats against Brighton and Derby have left them standing 11th with 34 points. They’ve lost 4 of their last 5 games and even lost against Barnsley at home with a shameful 0-3 scoreline –which they surely will want to avenge in their next game. The difference between the current form of the two teams and their recent head-to-head record gives us some good betting ideas.
Barnsley vs Birmingham Betting Tips
First off, we believe that Barnsley’s good form will continue, so a 1X bet is a good idea. We believe a “both teams to score” bet or an “over 2,5” goal bet are both great ideas since Birmingham can’t afford to defend and let their opponents attack. Barnsley’s defense also isn’t the best around, thus we believe that betting on Birmingham to score is another great idea, which should also provide good odds.
