The last throw of the dice for one of English football’s most consistent teams as they aim to finish the season on a high and complete a comeback that looked highly unlikely back in the winter. Here are our top Bristol Rovers v Barnsley betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Game
To win the league title they must ask for a favour from Oxford while dishing out a bit of a beating to Bristol Rovers on the road. Easier said than done and there’s no doubt their rivals have the easier game in front of their own fans. Bristol Rovers won’t be prepared to roll over and play dead on their own patch, we can take that as guaranteed.
Bristol Rovers head into this finale having suffered a mixed bag of results in recent times and their last five outings have returned one win, three draws and a defeat. They have also drawn two of their last three, ending level with Fleetwood Town on the road last time. It’s also worth mentioning they have scored just one goal in their last three league games as they roll to a finish this term, something that won’t worry too many connected to the club. The home cheer is 9/2 at Ladbrokes, a draw more likely at 3/1 when betting with William Hill.
Four wins on the spin has lifted Barnsley to second in the division and they have gone from a side chasing automatic promotion to one with half a chance of lifting the trophy. We really must give this Barnsley side the credit they deserve, and they will arrive determined to go out on a high and, at the very least, make Luton earn their prize if that’s the way this campaign is to finish. The visitors start this match as hot favourites and there can be no arguments over that call from traders as they are the one with more to play for here.
Barnsley took their tally to four-in-a-row last Saturday with a deserved win over Blackpool at home, beating The Seasiders 2-1 to keep their dreams alive. Pritchard opened the scoring for the beaten side but that was eventually matched by Woodrow before Lindsay scored what turned out to be the winner with 59 minutes on the clock. We’re taking the away day and add Barnsley to our accumulators at 8/13 – top price with Unibet. That quote won’t make you rich on its own, but it will boost your returns if added to other shrewd plays.
