Barnsley vs Grimsby: Top Free Betting Tips

Barnsley have registered successive away victories in League One as they prepare for their first game in the EFL Trophy against Grimsby Town. The game is scheduled to be played at Oakwell on Tuesday, 5 September. The Mariners enter this game after a much-awaited victory against Gillingham in League Two.

Match result prediction: Barnsley to win

After consecutive defeats at Oakwell, Barnsley have gained winning momentum in the league with successive victories against Cheltenham and Wigan. On the other hand, Grimsby have been dismal away from Blundell Park as they lost four of the recent five road fixtures, ending one in a draw. Additionally, Barnsley have gone undefeated in the last five H2Hs against the Mariners at Oakwell and registered three victories. Given these statistics, we set Barnsley as our favourites to take the lead in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

The last three H2Hs between these two clubs have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Both sides have also found the back of the net in each of their previous five fixtures. Barnsley kept two consecutive clean sheets before this game. However, the Tykes have been unable to restrict the rivals from scoring in any of the recent five matches at Oakwell. Meanwhile, the Mariners conceded goals in all of their last five competitive fixtures away from Blundell Park. Hence, we predict the teams to share a BTTS outcome in this encounter.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Barnsley

Barnsley have scored twice in each of their last two fixtures in League One. The Tykes have also rattled the net multiple times in three of the recent five home fixtures against Grimsby while conceding just one goal in total. On the other hand, the Mariners have scored more than once in only one of the last five competitive fixtures away from Blundell Park. Defensively, Grimsby leaked multiple goals in four games during that course. Therefore, we imagine a 2-1 lead for Barnsley in their first group-stage game of the EFL Trophy.
