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.
