Barnsley vs Shrewsbury Free Betting Tips and Predictions

The League One match Barnsley – Shrewsbury sees two teams from the top half of the table and both in shaky form face each other. Below we have tried to give you our best free betting tips.

Barnsley to Win

Our first Barnsley vs Shrewsbury prediction is for the Tykes to get back to winning ways. Barnsley might have lost 2 of their last 3 and with this the chances for a direct promotion but at home, they remain impressive and have now won 7 in a row. Now they are up against a Shrewsbury team that is low on motivation and lost 4 of their last 5, including the last 3.

Over 2.5 Goals

Barnsley saw all of their last 5 home games have at least 3 goals scored in them. Shrewsbury are also no stranger to high-scoring matches and 5 of their last 6 league outings produced 3 goals or more. This is why our second Barnsley vs Shrewsbury prediction is for the game to have at least 3 total goals.

Barnsley to Score First

Our final Barnsley vs Shrewsbury prediction backs the hosts to score the first goal of the match. The Tykes scored the opening goal in all of their last 7 home matches. Now they are up against a Shrewsbury team that conceded the first goal in all of their last 5 away games.

Barnsley vs Shrewsbury Lineups and Other News

Barnsley

Barnsley lost 1-2 on their visit to Burton on Good Friday. This second away defeat in a row ended any realistic chances of catching the top 2. At least the playoff position seems cemented so Barnsley are not under any serious pressure right now. They remain formidable hosts and haven’t dropped any points at home for over 2months now – 7 wins in a row.

Have a big squad and can refresh the lineup, this is very likely considering the ridiculous schedule. Still missing 5 players due to injuries, but none of them regular starters even when available so the squad is pretty much at full strength.

Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury lost their playoff chances about a month ago and with this, the motivation fell off a cliff. The Shrews suffered 4 defeats in the last 5, and lost the last 3 with a combined goal difference of 0-11. On Good Friday hardly offered any resistance at home on a way to a deserved 0-3 loss vs Peterborough.

The gaffer will be challenged for the coming game as the squad is small and also missing some important players. This could see him opt to give 1-2 of the teenagers a chance. Flanagan should be involved anyway as he is back from a ban. However, 5 players are out sidelined with 4 of those likely starters when fit. Those being Nurse, Bayliss, Udoh and Saydee.
