Free Betting Tips for Cheltenham vs Barnsley

If you can’t seem to decide on a bet for Cheltenham vs Barnsley, check our top betting predictions for this duel here:

Cheltenham or Draw

Cheltenham enter this game fresh off their first win in eight on Tuesday. They also kept back-to-back clean sheets at home and had been pretty solid hosts so far in 2023 (W1 D2 L1).

Added to that, Barnsley’s manager openly confessed after the midweek match that the many injury issues for his team are starting to have a negative impact on the displays with fatigue now considered a major factor in terms of selection decisions. Due to all that our first Cheltenham vs Barnsley prediction is that Barnsley will fail to win.

Cheltenham to Draw From Behind

With our second Cheltenham vs Barnsley prediction, we’re going for some big odds, but we believe the chances of that scenario, Cheltenham coming from behind to draw, are worth considering.

We base this on the fact that Barnsley are one of the fastest starting teams in League One – already 15 goals scored inside the opening 30 minutes of matches. At the same time, Cheltenham scored just 3 goals in the opening 30 minutes of their matches. Cheltenham play much stronger in second halves though and 60% (15 out of 25) of their goals have been scored then.

Under 2.5 Goals

We don’t see this being a high-scoring affair and with our final Cheltenham vs Barnsley prediction we offer a free tip that there will be less than 2.5 total goals.

Cheltenham are averaging less than a goal per game all season, with 25 goals in 30 rounds. This explains that 6 of their last 7 home games have gone under 2.5 goals.

Cheltenham vs Barnsley Lineups, Form and Team News

Cheltenham

Cheltenham needed a bit of luck on Tuesday to edge Cambridge 2-1 away from home and with this record their first win in the last 8 rounds. The display was far from great yet again, but at least at home Cheltenham had been defending very well lately and they have recorded back-to-back 0-0 home draws.

Some refreshing of the lineup can be expected and benched in midweek Barkers and Keena, both January signings, should be considered for stars again in this one.

Still missing 5 injured players. The most important names on the injury list are defenders Williams and Freestone.

Barnsley

Barnsley didn’t play very well during their midweek visit to Port Vale and yet they won 3-1. With only 2 points dropped in the last 5 rounds Barnsley’s form had been impressive, especially considering all their selection issues.

The squad is tired though and it seems the manager might be forced to rest some regulars this weekend even if he doesn’t want to. On top of that 8 players remain sidelined. Among them are main goalie Collins and key playmaker Thomas. As if this is not enough striker Watters misses the coming match suspended.
