Barnsley vs Cardiff Prediction
Barnsley has struggled in this season after the promotion from League One. They are in the 23rd spot as a strong contender for relegation this season.
However, with 10 matches remaining in the league, the host can still make it out of the last three places on the table.
Barnsley finally tasted defeat last time out against Reading with a 2-0 scoreline, following three consecutive victories. Meanwhile, Cardiff will visit after a 2-2 draw at home with Brentford.
First, the Tykes are backed up by their capabilities at their own ground. They registered five of their 8 overall wins as the host. If Struber’s boys need points, then the best shot will be at home.
Second, they are facing a relegated side from the Premier League. Despite having that experience, Cardiff City has shown weakness in their away games in Championship matches.
Out of the visitor’s 12 wins, only 4 wins were from their on-road fixtures. Also, 7 of the Bluebird’s 9 overall losses have come in their away schedules in the campaign.
As such, the home team has more chances of winning the clash in ninety minutes. The best option for the punters will be to go with a double chance of 1.40 odds favoring the host.
Furthermore, both sides are likely to score at least a goal each in the clash. So, BTTS will be a good option at 1.66 odds in ninety minutes.
