Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers: Top free betting tips

Our Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers prediction is for an open game in which both teams are likely to score. Will there be a third consecutive draw in this fixture? 

Despite a series of draws, 3 in the last 5 rounds, Barnsley remain in the top 6 and they tend to be very dominant on home turf. Bristol Rovers are also still hanging in the top half of the table but their lack of consistency continues, mixing 2 wins with 2 defeats in the last 4 rounds. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our first Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers prediction backs both teams to find the back of the net. In 9 of Barnsley’s last 10 matches, there were BTTS outcomes. The Gas better even that run as all of their last 11 games in all competitions finished with both teams involved scoring. 

Goalscorer anytime prediction: Devante Cole to score anytime

Our next Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers prediction backs the top goalscorer of the Tykes Devante Cole to find the back of the net at any time. Cole already has 14 league goals in just 24 appearances. He scored in 3 of the last 6 rounds too and now faces a defence that failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 consecutive games. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

As usual, our final Barnsley vs Bristol Rovers prediction looks at the possible correct score from this match. We think the game could end in a 1-1 draw. The last clash between the sides back in August ended 1-1. Also, Barnsley drew 4 of their last 6 home matches, with the last 2 home draws for the Tykes 1-1 results.
