Who will come on top of this disputed affair which will take place at Craven Cottage?

If they win their game in hand later in the season, Fulham could leapfrog Barnsley. Under current conditions, they sit 2 points behind their opponents with 36 points, in 10th place. The team has one of the better attacks of the division, with 41 goals scored, but one of the worst home record – only 17 points in 13 home games. They only won 2 of their last 5 home games, which isn’t good news by any means, but they have won their last game against Barnsley in autumn – with a commanding 4-2 scoreline.
On the other hand, Barnsley’s current form is much better. Undefeated in their last 5 games, with 5 wins and three draws over the past ten games, the newly promoted team sits 8th in the league. They are the 5th best away team in the division as well, with 19 points in 12 games, so it’s safe to assume that they will give Fulham a run for their money on Saturday.
Fulham vs Barnsley Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we expect to see goals here, at least one for each side. “both teams to score” and “over 2,5” goals are the clear ideas of the day, while we do have some other options as well.
An X2 bet is a great value idea – Fulham are playing horribly at home at the moment, so a draw or away win aren’t impossible by any means. And, if you’re looking for really enormous odds, a solo away win could more than quadruple your money.
