Tip Reasoning

  • Blackpool have won or drawn seven of their 12 Championship away games this season.
  • Barnsley have lost five of their last eight home Championship games (Won 1, Drawn 2).
  • Barnsley have failed to score in three of their last four league games at Oakwell.

Swerve the sinking south Yorkshire side 

Barnsley look like the sort of home favourite that has to be swerved when they play host to mid-table Blackpool in the Championship this weekend.

The Tykes are eight points below the safety line and time is running out for Poya Asbaghi to turn them around. The South Yorkshire club’s announcement that a player shortage had forced them to postpone Wednesday’s home match against Stoke must also raise concerns ahead of this key fixture.

Blackpool were expected to be in the thick of a relegation battle this term, but the promoted club find themselves ensconced in a position where it would take a dramatic downturn for them to end up in the bottom three. Neil Critchley’s side have managed to stay clear of trouble by playing some good football too, although their resources could be challenged by bids from wealthier clubs in the current transfer window.

Draw no bet offers handy rewards

A record of only five defeats from 12 road trips further enhances our confidence that the Seasiders won’t return from Oakwell empty handed after facing a Barnsley side without a home win in four.

When it comes to framing the bet, we prefer the option of drawn no bet here and the better odds on Blackpool over the odds-on price of the visitors in the double chance market. The stake has been reduced to accommodate this risk-to-reward strategy.

Barnsley’s lack of home goals also encourages us to take a 1-0 away win in correct score betting as Blackpool currently average 1.25 away goals per game in the league.
