Match Preview & Team News
There were no surprises when it comes to odds offered for this clash. Barnsley are big favorites, currently priced at 1/2 rate. They are currently 9th placed team in the Championship with 34 points from 23 games. Some would say this result is slightly above expectations. Squad from Oakwell is entering this clash with a good mood, earning three victories in the last five outings. Situation with the visitors is a bit different. Read on our FA Cup betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Tranmere Rovers’ form is declining for a couple of weeks now. They got destroyed by Exeter City in mid-December, losing the clash 0-5. Later on defeat to Bradford City happened, as well as the draw against Barrow. All this had a big impact on the standings, dropping to 13th place with 28 points total. It seems like all the good work in the early stages was ruined by this streak. Unlike the hosts, Rovers had to play in both rounds of FA Cup so far, beating Accrington Stanley 2-1 and Brackley Town 1-0.
At this time last year, Barnsley eliminated Crewe Alexandra in 3rd round of FA Cup. They got knocked out on the next step though, losing 2-4 to Portsmouth. Overall Barnsley performs well at Oakwell, having more than 50% win rate.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Since we don’t expect to see much from the visitors here, Under 2.5 FT is going to be our choice for this market. Barnsley haven’t been super-efficient either, bagging 14 goals in 11 home appearances.
Home win is nice banker bet and should be landing easily in our opinion. Form of the visitors is just awful in the last four weeks, and it’s hard to believe they can do any damage to tier two squad.
