Bristol Rovers vs Barnsley Odds, Free Betting Tps, & Predictions

The game sees the in-form Barnsley facing a struggling Bristol Rovers team. We believe any Barnsley vs Derby prediction made below is a likely outcome.

Barnsley to Win

Barnsley come into the match after arguably their best display of the season so far – 4-1 home win vs Derby. Barnsley have shown the best form in the entire league over the last 7 rounds (W6 D1). At the same time, Bristol only last weekend stopped an awful 6-game winless run. Rovers lost 5 of their last 7 league games. All this makes us believe Barnsley could continue their hot streak.

Barnsley to Score First in First Half

Our second Bristol Rovers vs Barnsley prediction is for Barnsley to score first and to do so in the first half. Barnsley are the fastest-starting team in the entire League One. They have already scored 12 goals inside the opening 15 minutes of matches. Also, Barnsley are 1 of only 3 League One teams to score more than 50% of their goals in the first halves of matches. At the same time, Bristol start their home games slowly. On average they don’t score their first goal at home until the 47th minute.

Over 0.5 First Half Goals

To follow our Bristol Rovers vs Barnsley prediction above and for the same reasoning, we believe there will be at least 1 goal scored in the first half. This had been the case in 6 of Barnsley’s last 7 league games. Also, in 4 of Bristol’s last 5.

Bristol Rovers vs Barnsley Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Bristol Rovers

Stopped an awful 6-game winless run (D1 L5) last weekend with an impressive 3-0 away win against Oxford. This was a rare positive attacking display, with Bristol scoring just 2 goals in the previous 6 games before this clash.

Coach Barton is likely to be considering keeping the starting 11 unchanged after the decent display last weekend. This would see the struggling-for-form Coburn starting his fourth consecutive match on the bench.

Bristol will be missing 4 injured players, with 3 of those potential starters when fit – the main left-back Anderton, star right midfielder Anderson and playmaker Rossiter. Squad is much weaker with all 3 of them absent.

Barnsley

Barnsley were simply sensational going forward last weekend when they trashed their direct rivals for the playoffs Derby 4-1 at home. This was seen as Barnsley’s best game of the season so far. The confidence is very high right now with Barnsley dropping just 2 points in the last 7 rounds.

Barnsley are without 6 sidelined players. Main goalkeeper Collins is the most notable of those set to miss. However, in his absence, Isted has been playing very well. Useful backup striker Watters returns after a ban, also Benson is fit again. Key playmaker Thomas is more and more involved too after a long absence.
