Barnsley vs Walsall Betting Tips: Form Guide

Barnsley Have Fit Into League One With Ease

The way in which a team transitions between leagues always throws an interesting dynamic into the mix. How will they adapt to this new environment? While Barnsley have now fully immersed themselves into League One from the Championship, there’s still that element of surprise that makes Barnsley vs Walsall betting tips that little bit more intriguing. So, how have they fared thus far?

Rather well, as it happens. Their League One season got off off with a bang as they comprehensively defeated Oxford United 4-0 , and followed this up with another strong win, defeating Bradford City 2-0. Their cup of coffee over at the Carabao Cup brought them back to earth though with a 3-1 loss to future opponents Blackpool.

Back to league games and they traded losses and draws up until the present day; drawing against Wimbledon 0-0, tearing through Rochdale’s defences in a 4-0 triumph, drawing against Scunthorpe 2-2 and finally coming into this match off the back of a 2-1 win against Gillingham. That’s if you don’t also consider their 2-1 CheckaTrade Trophy win against Oldham, of course.

Really this has been a textbook example of how to keep your cool and adapt after the upset of relegation. Barnsley haven’t lost a league game yet and that, we think, will be tough to change.

Walsall Hope To Improve On Last Season

While Barnsley may look tough to beat, Walsall’s recent success may indicate they could be strong enough to pull it off. Walsall struggled last season – barely managing to avoid relegation themselves – but have entered League One this time around with a renewed vigour, and indeed, are undefeated as well.

Their season didn’t start off quite as dominantly as their upcoming opponents, but they still managed to push through a 2-1 victory over Plymouth and hit a deadlock in a 1-1 draw against Scunthorpe. They had more luck at the Carabao Cup too, although against weaker opposition in a 3-1 win over Tranmere.

Returning to League One games and they flew up the table thanks to three consecutive wins, besting Gillingham, Wimbledon and Rochdale in 2-1, 3-1 and 2-1 efforts. They fell to Macclesfield on penalties in the Carabao Cup and come into this match off a 0-0 league draw with Blackpool and a 2-1 win over Burton in a CheckaTrade Trophy match.

Overall, it’s a strong start. They’ve clearly learned a lot from their mistakes last time around and have improved in a lot of areas. Barnsley vs Walsall match previews shouldn’t count them out based on a disappointing last season.

Barnsley vs Walsall Preview: Recent Meetings

There have been a fair few meetings between these two recently, and these stats certainly will help when it comes to Barnsley vs Walsall betting tips for today. They’ve met on several occasions throughout the last five years with a large gap before that.

In 2014, Walsall handed Barnsley a bruising 3-1 loss, while in 2015, they came out roughly even, with Barnsley winning one 3-0 contest and Walsall being victorious in a 2-0 rematch. However, in 2016, Barnsley really come away with the advantage, winning 3-1, 3-0 and 3-1 matches throughout.

As we’ve moved closer to the present, the gap between them has widened and for that reason, Barnsley do come out on top in their recent head-to-head meetings. A lot can, and has, changed in the last few years, but no one can doubt the psychological advantage of having a hat-trick of wins against your opponent.

Barnsley vs Walsall Prediction: Barnsley Remain Undefeated

Barnsley may be the clear favourites in the eyes of many, but this contest might just be a lot closer than it appears at first glance.

Both these teams have managed to remain unbeaten and against similar opponents. Therefore, it has been difficult to say who has the advantage. Walsall, for example, did much better against Wimbledon and Blackpool, while Barnsley had more luck over Rochdale and have arguably, in general, played better. We’d give the slightest of nods to the latter in this regard.

When you top that with Barnsley’s winning streak against Walsall in 2016, then we think that Barnsley do have the advantage, although it is one that is perhaps slighter than some would suggest. With that in mind, our Barnsley vs Walsall prediction is that the home side remains undefeated.
