Middlesbrough - Barnsley betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 19:45 on 20/10/2021 played @ Riverside Stadium refereed by Andy Madley

Though Middlesbrough are more likely to win this, an away win would only be slightly surprising. It’s a relatively balanced matchup, which usually means we’ll see some exciting football.

The matchup this Wednesday is rather one-sided, with Barnsley seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.90, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Middlesbrough iare coming off from a purposeful 2:0 triumph against Peterborough United . The last time they played at Riverside Stadium, they had issues taking control in the early game but established clear dominance in the second half.

While Barnsley’s previous away game was by no means a success, a narrow 1:0 away defeat after an inconclusive first half isn’t too bad. It’s hard to fight against the 2.40 their opponents Reading were given for a home win.

The Boro’s away games tend to end without a lot of goals. The previous five times they played as visitors, there were less than 3 goals per match.

The Tykes’s recent matches have been relatively uneventful. The previous two, for instance, ended with less than 2 goals at the final whistle.

Looking over the previous season’s track record, Barnsley seemed to be the dominant team in this matchup. They’ve recorded several decisive victories. Despite this, however, The Boro are considered the clear favourites in the game on Wednesday.

Fortunately, both teams will be able to give their all this Wednesday. Neither squad has been affected by injuries or suspensions, allowing the coaches to work with all the tools at their disposal.

Our advice is to go for an Under 2.5 Goals market, though it was likely not your first instinct. While the probability is rather low compared to what you’re used to from Under 2.5 bets, it compares favourably to the 1.72 odds offered by Betsson.

Betting tip (stake: 6/10): Under 2,5 1.72 at Betsson
Correct score prediction: 1:0
