​Bolton vs Barnsley: Top free betting tips

Our Bolton vs Barnsley prediction is for a close battle that we think the visitors might edge. Can Bolton inflict just the second away league win on the Tykes this season?

This game sees two sides sitting in the top 5 and facing each other. Also, Bolton are one of the best home teams in the division (W10 D1 L3), while Barnsley continue to have the best away record in League One (W8 D3 L1). 

Goalscorer anytime prediction: Devante Cole to score anytime

Barnsley’s top goalscorer this season Cole has netted 16 goals in just 28 league appearances. Cole is in excellent form right now and he got on the scoresheet in 4 of the last 6 rounds. That’s why with our first Bolton vs Barnsley prediction we back him yet again to find the back of the net at least once. 

Total goals prediction: Odd

Our second Bolton vs Barnsley prediction is that there will be an odd number of total goals scored in this match. This was the case in 3 of the last 4 H2Hs. Also, all of Barnsley’s last 4 games produced an odd amount of goals. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Barnsley

With our final Bolton vs Barnsley prediction yet again we try to predict the correct score. The Tykes have the best away record in League One (W8 D3 L1) and that’s why we back them to edge this game 2-1. 

Barnsley won 2 of their last 4 league games with that same 2-1 scoreline. Also, Bolton’s last 2 home defeats were 1-2 losses. The Tykes also won 1 of their last 2 away matches vs Bolton with that same 2-1 result.
