Reason For Barnsley VS Huddersfield Betting Tips
These two sides are both having excellent seasons. With just 1 win in 5, the play-offs will almost certainly now be beyond Barnsley but Huddersfield continue to deliver the goods and they ought to have the edge here.
The Terriers have won their last 6 Championship games to really ramp up the pressure on the top two. What’s more impressive is that amongst those 6 wins, they have recorded 3 victories against other teams in the top six. A play-off place now looks virtually guaranteed so they can afford to be bold here and go for another victory that would really set things up nicely for their home game against leaders Newcastle next weekend.
There is real strength in depth in this Huddersfield squad and they have rotated heavily over the last seven days so tiredness shouldn’t be a massive factor here. One of their best summer signings was that of Elias Kachunga. The forward has netted two crucial goals already this month and backing Kachunga to score anytime at 13/8 could be worth a punt here.
Another encouraging sign for Huddersfield is Barnsley’s home record. The Tykes have put in some of their best performances away from home this term. At Oakwell they’ve not been bad but they have lost 35% of their home games and their average of 1.35 points per game at home is inferior to their away record. They’ve only won 3 of their last 15 home matches in all competitions so with Huddersfield playing so well, the visitors ought to have the edge here.
Huddersfield have become masters in the art of the narrow win. A huge 90% of their league wins this term have been by just a single goal, including all 8 of their away victories. They’ve won 5 of their last 6 away league games by just 1 goal and that makes backing Huddersfield to Win by 1 goal at 11/4 looks like a cracking bet here.
