Leeds’ last match at Elland Road ended in a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Blackpool and, while Simon Grayson’s men are unlikely to fall to such a crushing defeat when local rivals Barnsley come to town, there could be just as many goals.
The last four meetings between Leeds and Barnsley have all featured at least four goals, with last season’s fixtures serving up a 5-2 win for the Tykes at Oakwell and a 3-3 thriller at Elland Road.

And with no team in the division statistically more likely than Leeds to be involved in games with at least four goals, a bet on there to be over 3.5 goals in tomorrow’s game looks a good one at odds of 33/20.
A successful £25 free bet on there to be over 3.5 goals when Leeds meet Barnsley at Elland Road will return £66.25, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
The Tykes have not won a game away from home since a 2-1 success over Reading on 20th August.
Since the Whites’ humiliation at the hands of the Tangerines they have put together two encouraging away wins against Leicester and Burnley, helping them to fifth in the table.
Meanwhile, a 2-0 win over Doncaster last Saturday helped Barnsley to 15th, their highest position in the Championship standings so far this season.
However, the Tykes have not won a game away from home since a 2-1 success over Reading on 20th August, suggesting they are unlikely to climb any higher any time soon.
This state of affairs is reflected in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, where Leeds are 13/20 favourites to win all three points.
And with goals on the agenda, it could be worth betting on Leeds to win a game with over 2.5 combined goals at 7/5 or, for those seeking even bigger returns, on Leeds to win a game with over 3.5 goals at 3/1.
Finally, for those punters who think Barnsley can come away with a point for the second year in a row the draw is at 5/2, while an away victory is at 17/4.
