Ipswich Town vs Barnsley: Betting Tips

This year’s season in the English Championship ends in early May, so upcoming weeks are going to be of crucial importance for a lot of teams, including Barnsley. The Tykes have kept their survival hopes alive thanks to the amazing performance and win against Sheffield United. Full time result of that match (played on Saturday) was 3-2. The winning goal was scored by Tom Bradshaw just a couple of minutes before the final whistle. That was the eighth victory for Barnsley, who are sitting in 22nd place with 37 points, two less than Bolton Wanderers.

As for their hosts, Ipswich Town and their fans got nothing to fear of. The team is in the middle of the table with 53 points, without chances to either get involved in top 6 race or get relegated. Despite that, Mick McCarthy is under a lot of pressure because of poor results. Ipswich won only two points from the last six games in the Championship.

The Tykes have almost the worst stats in the league when it comes to number of goals scored on the road. So far they bagged only 10 in 19 games, while conceding 21. The Tractor Boys are without a clean sheet in the last five games too, so I am backing BTTS option with mid-sized stake. The current price is 5/6 (1.83).

Also, keep in mind that Dean Gerken and Joe Garner won’t be able to make an appearance for Ipswich. These two players have had a solid season overall and played an important role.
