Despite losing seven of their last nine games, Leeds are still just outside the Championship play-off places and are fancied to prove too strong for Barnsley.

United have faced a number of the leading teams during their tough run of results and should find the Tykes more conducive company as they bid to get back on track.

At 33/20, we reckon the visitors are good value for our Barnsley vs Leeds betting predictions.

A Look At Barnsley’s Betting Odds

Barnsley again began the season as one of the favourites for relegation, so Paul Heckingbottom should be pleased with being six points above the drop zone, having played a game less than most teams.

However, the Tykes have only beaten struggling Birmingham in their last six home matches after going down 1-0 to Cardiff here on Tuesday.

Heckingbottom’s side started strongly enough against the Bluebirds but were gradually outmuscled in the second half by a physical Welsh outfit.

A similar pattern of play this weekend would make 21/4 for a draw at half-time and then United to win worth adding to our Barnsley vs Leeds betting tips.

A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds

Leeds failed to follow up a promising 2-1 home win over Middlesbrough with another positive result at Wolves, but their performance was more encouraging than the final scoreline of 4-1 suggests.

The Whites struggled to cope with the Championship leaders in the opening period, but Ezgjan Alioski pulled it back to 2-1 soon after the break and they were pushing for an equaliser until Ronaldo Vieira saw red.

“We have faced the best team in the league, but we matched them at times and were in it until the sending off,” insisted head coach Thomas Christiansen.

Although faltering of late, Leeds have picked up four league wins on the road this season, including last month’s 3-0 romp at Bristol City, so the ability is there.

We’re rounding off our Barnsley vs Leeds betting tips by taking 27/20 for the visitors to score more than once, as they did in both encounters with the Tykes last term.
