Barrow vs Oldham – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Both clubs are aiming to bounce back from recent defeats when Barrow host Oldham in Cumbria. Read our top three predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Oldham Double Chance
Barrow and Oldham were among the few teams to take part in the Boxing Day fixture programme after a raft of COVID-led postponements, though both teams came up short in festive defeats. Indeed, Barrow’s loss was their fourth in five League Two assignments and they have won just once in their last 11 games in the fourth tier overall. Oldham have been struggling too, though they did manage to avoid defeat in four of their last eight tests on the road and they are a generous price in the double chance market against their out of sorts hosts.
Wednesday’s tussle will likely be a game of few chances and fine margins however. Barrow and Oldham are among League Two’s lowest-scoring teams this season, netting just 1.04 and 1.0 goals per 90 minutes on average respectively. In addition, 100% of Barrow’s last six and four of Oldham’s last six away contests produced under 2.5 goals, and we recommend sticking to that market here.
Both Teams to Score – No
The lack of firepower in each camp could also allow bettors to pursue another option with confidence in midweek. Both teams not to score has been a winning bet in each of Barrow’s last six matches, while three of Oldham’s last five skirmishes on the road also failed to deliver goals at both ends. With reliable goal-getters in short supply on both sides, backing both outfits not to register on Wednesday could be a smart move again.
Barrow vs Oldham: Match Preview
Barrow are seated in 19th place in League Two following their 2-0 reverse at Tranmere on Boxing Day and after a horrible run, Mark Cooper’s charges have been dragged into the relegation mire. Kgosi Ntlhe, Jamie Devitt, George Williams and Dimitri Sea all missed that defeat and all four players could be absent again on Wednesday. Ollie Banks remains suspended this week having accumulated ten bookings and the club's top scorer will be a big miss.
Oldham will kick off Wednesday's game rock bottom of League Two and their last result in the division was the one that knocked them to the foot of the table. The Latics were beaten 3-1 at home by Scunthorpe on Boxing Day, who were in last spot ahead of the fixture. Defender Kyle Jameson was on the sidelines for that setback, as was Alan Sheehan, and both players could be out again this week.
