Barnsley vs Cheltenham Town – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Barnsley opened the new campaign with a disastrous 1-0 loss at the hands of Plymouth. A goal just before half-time at Home Park became the only differentiating element between the two clubs. Cheltenham Town also began in disappointing fashion after losing at home to Peterborough United. Despite opening to a 2-0 lead, Cheltenham collapsed in the second half and conceded three goals.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. Ladbrokes are our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Barnsley win

Barnsley will be keen on bouncing back from the opening day defeat, which might have provided a wake-up call to the players. After the relegation from the Championship, it has been a poor campaign for the Tykes. Cheltenham ended up suffering a loss just when it seemed that they would pick up a handsome home victory in the opening game. There is a lot of quality possessed by the home team, who are unlikely to throw this match away.

Total goals under 2.5

Cheltenham witnessed five goals in the first game of the season. Barnsley could not take the half chances that came their way against Plymouth. Even though the defence was exposed on a number of occasions, they are likely to have a good time against Cheltenham.

Both teams to score – no

Despite watching Cheltenham come up with two goals in the first game of the season, it is unlikely that the Robins will be able to achieve this feat in an away game. Last season, away matches were an Achilles heel for the team.

Barnsley vs Cheltenham Town: League One Preview and Team News

Barnsley

Barnsley manager Michael Duff would be disappointed to have started the new era in losing fashion, but it would not have taken a lot of effort from Barnsley to have taken something from the game against Plymouth. Still, this was a commendable effort against a team that almost finished in the play-offs last season. There are no injury concerns for Barnsley ahead of this game.

Cheltenham Town

Cheltenham boss Wade Elliot will be keen on taking positives from the Peterborough United. The first-half performance from the team was particularly quite good. However, the team had a very disappointing away form last season with the team registering only three wins from 23 games.
