Tip Reasoning

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Barnsley’s nine league games.
  • Under 2.5 goals have also been scored in five of Forest’s last six outings.
  • The teams have netted just 14 league goals between them in 18 combined fixtures.
  • The last five meetings have all produced less than three goals, with just five scored in total.

Drab draw in prospect at Oakwell

Wednesday night’s Championship fixture between Barnsley and Nottingham Forest looks a smelly affair for punters with both sides badly struggling, but backers can capitalise on the likely lack of quality at Oakwell by going for under 2.5 goals.

The 1X2 market should be readily avoided here with both sides picking up just one win from their first nine Championship games, and that’s reflected in the odds available with the draw on offer at just 2/1.

We’re in agreement with the bookmakers that neither hold decent claims and the sides’ lack of victories this term is largely down to their failures in front of goal. The teams have netted just 14 goals between them in 18 combined fixtures, so it will come as no surprise that the majority have been low scoring affairs overall.

Seven of Barnsley’s nine league matches have produced under 2.5 goals and that’s also been the case in five of Forest’s last six starts.

With five of the last six encounters generating less than three goals, under 2.5 is the clear choice for Wednesday’s action and a goalless draw is our selection in the correct score market, for what could well turn out to be a bit of a stinker in South Yorkshire.
