Barnsley vs Exeter: Top free betting tips

Our Barnsley vs Exeter prediction is for a close match we can see the hosts edging. Can the Grecians defy the odds? 

The Tykes remain firmly in the mix for direct promotion after securing 3 consecutive wins in the last 3 rounds. Barnsley are now undefeated in their last 11 games (W7 D4) and they are brimming with confidence. Exeter also feel better about themselves after losing just once in the last 4 games (W2 D1). The Grecians remain very passive on the road though. 

Goalscorer anytime prediction: Devante Cole to score anytime

Our first Barnsley vs Exeter prediction backs Cole to add to his 16 league goals this season. Cole has scored in 58% of Barnsley’s home matches so far. He scored in all of the last 3 home games and right now containing him seems practically impossible for anyone. 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Barnsley to win

The Tykes won all of their last 3 league games. Barnsley also secured wins in 3 of their last 4 home matches. At the same time, Exeter had been shaky on the road all season and the Grecians come into this match on the back of 3 defeats in their last 4 away league outings. Due to all that with our second Barnsley vs Exeter prediction, we back the hosts to win. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Barnsley

As is our tradition the final Barnsley vs Exeter prediction is an attempt to predict the correct score. We think the game will be much closer than many expect but we still back Barnsley to win 2-1. 

Barnsley won 3 of their last 4 home matches with that same 2-1 result. Also, Exeter conceded at least 2 goals in 7 of their last 8 league defeats.
