Barnsley Betting Tips

Barnsley FC have a long history in English football, being founded in 1887 by the wonderfully named Rev. Tiverton Preedy, but unfortunately, haven’t got much silverware to show for it.  The Tykes have spent more seasons in the second tier of English football than any club in history but did manage to win the Football League Trophy in the 2015/16 season.

That was their first trophy since winning the FA Cup in 1912, so a lot of savvy punters were able to take advantage of some great odds. There are still exciting Barnsley wagers out there, and we’re going to tell you how to find them. 

This page has up-to-date betting tips, information on bonus bets and the latest rumours and club news.

You’ll find a lot of Barnsley betting tips and predictions online, but it’s hard to gauge how trustworthy a lot of them are. These predictions will usually only cover the main markets, such as the match result, and often these bets don’t present great value for money. 

The deeper markets are where the extra value wagers lie, but you’ll need a good working knowledge of the team and the Championship as well as a sound understanding of the different bookmaker markets to take full advantage

Barnsley Betting Odds

If you are going to be betting on the main match outcomes, you can use a price comparison website to find the best odds across multiple sportsbooks. These are very handy as they save you having to manually check each bookmaker.

The comparison websites usually only display the main markets (1x2, handicaps, over/under), so if you’re betting on the other markets you’ll probably have to do the legwork yourself. This will take a little longer, but you’re more likely to find extra betting value that way.

Barnsley Bonus Bets

If there’s a big Barnsley FC game coming up, such as a match against a rival Yorkshire team like Sheffield Wednesday or Leeds United, you’ll often see bookmakers advertising Barnsley bonus bets. These are to tempt in new customers and encourage people to bet, but savvy punters can use these bonus bets to their advantage. 

You will find offers such as enhanced odds to boost your winnings, accumulator bonuses to add insurance to your multi-bet, and cashback bonuses should your bet not be successful. The terms and conditions will vary between bookmakers, so be sure to read the small print to find the best deal.

Barnsley Fixtures

You can look ahead and see Barnsley’s schedule right up until the end of the season, but chances are at least a couple of those matches will have to be postponed for one reason or another.

If games are being played in quick succession, this can lead to changes in the squad, which can affect the betting odds. Rather than trust that kind of information to a third party, we advise going straight to the source - the official Barnsley FC website to get the updates you need.

Barnsley Results

The Tykes’ current form is one of the best indicators when it comes to choosing your next bet, so it’s always worthwhile checking out their recent results. You can see every Barnsley result for this season complete match reports and stats under the match tab on the Barnsley website.

It’s always good to get a second and third opinion when it comes to match reports, just to equal out any potential bias. The quickest way to do this is to refer to the previous opposition’s website and read their match report for the same game. Local news agencies also offer comprehensive write-ups as well.

Barnsley Team News

Paying attention to the matchday Barnsley team sheet before you place any wagers on them is recommended. Getting a look at the current line-up will enable you to evaluate the current form of the players starting the match, which will help you predict the team’s performance. 

Knowing about any injuries or suspensions, or players returning to the squad, may help you pick out an extra value bet.
