Barnsley play host to luckless Ipswich Town in the Championship’s evening offering on Saturday and the home side are the even money favourites to win the match in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
The draw is available at odds of 9/4, while the Tractor Boys are priced at a lengthy 53/20 to score an unlikely victory at Oakwell.
Barnsley beat Crystal Palace in midweek thanks to a double strike from Ricardo Vaz Te and that was the Tykes’ fourth win on the spin, propelling them up to eighth place in the table.
In their last three games they have won by a single goal, including a dramatic 4-3 win at Peterborough last week where they led 3-0 before being pegged back to 3-3.
You can bet on Barnsley to win by one goal by backing the draw in the 0-1 handicap market at odds of 17/4.
Ipswich, on the other hand, are on a dire run of seven straight league defeats.
Their latest loss came at home to Watford last weekend when they held a 1-0 lead going into the final 20 minutes, only to fall to a 2-1 defeat.
Interestingly, the Tractor Boys’ last six games have been flooded with goals. In fact, all but one have produced four or more and a repeat of that can be backed at 9/5 using the over 3.5 goals market on bwin.com. Over 2.5 goals looks a safer bet, but odds of 3/4 do not make much appeal.
Ipswich’s dreadful run cannot last forever but their recent away form makes it very difficult to justify a victory for them here.
They have shipped 14 goals in their last three ventures outside Suffolk and Barnsley should cash in to make it five wins from five, with the one-goal victory selection mentioned above looking to offer the best value.
