​Barnsley vs Wigan: Top free betting tips

Our Barnsley vs Wigan prediction is for a game of very few clear scoring chances. Can either team start 2024 with a win?

The Tykes come into 2024 sitting just outside the top 6 and with all to play for. Barnsley’s confidence is good after going unbeaten in the last 5 rounds (W3 D2). Wigan ended December with a much-needed win after losing 3 in a row right before that. The Latics remain close to the danger zone and they need points. 

​​Clean sheet prediction: Barnsley clean sheet

The Tykes managed to achieve shutdowns in 4 of the last 5 H2Hs. At the same time, Wigan failed to score in 3 of the last 5 rounds. This is why our first Barnsley vs Wigan prediction is for yet another clean sheet for the Tykes. 

​​Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Our next Barnsley vs Wigan prediction is that the spoils will be shared. The Latics registered 3 of their 4 league draws so far on the road. Also, 3 of the last 5 H2Hs ended without a winner. 

​​Correct score prediction: 0-0 draw

Our final Barnsley vs Wigan prediction is for a goalless draw. The 0-0 result was the outcome in 3 of the last 5 H2Hs. Also, 2 of Wigan’s last 3 draws were 0-0 outcomes.

​How far will Wigan’s fans travel to Barnsley?

Wigan’s fans who will travel for this game likely need to tone down their New Year’s Eve partying. That said the fitter ones can just forget about sleeping and just go for it. There is always the opportunity to sleep on the way back home.

The driving distance between these two towns is 72 miles (116km) and it should take just over an hour and a half for any Wigan fans to make it to the stadium. 

​Barnsley vs Wigan: Tickets

The Box Office at Oakwell will be open on the day of the game and all fans, including Wigan ones, can purchase a ticket up until 3:15 pm. The price varies from £25.00 to £27.00 per ticket, with the customary discounts for seniors and youngsters in place.
