Shrewsbury are ranked 19th, just three points above the danger zone while Barnsley are currently 4th and 4 points shy of the tip 2. The following are the top free Shrewsbury vs Barnsley predictions:

First team to score prediction – Shrewsbury to score first

In the first Shrewsbury vs Barnsley prediction, we have settled on the visitors to open the scoring. Barnely boast a better form than Shrewsbury ahead of this meeting, having lost just once and won three of their last five. On the flipside, the home team suffered three defeats in the last five, winning only once in that duration.

Total match goals prediction – Under 2.5 goals

In the second Shrewsbury vs Barnsley prediction, we expect this game to end with fewer than 3 goals, so under 2.5 goals is our pick for the League One encounter scheduled for 13th February 2024. These teams have been struggling to break the barrier of scoring more than a goal. Shrewsbury did that in only one of their last five games in the division while Barnsley scored more than a goal in 2 of their last 5 games.

Correct score prediction -1-1 Draw

In the final Shrewsbury vs Barnsley prediction, we are tipping a draw of 1-1. The home team did not score in only one of their last five in as much as they can't match the form of Barnley. The visitors on the other hand struggled to score more than a goal in their last five, so the possibility of under 2.5 goals and a draw with a scoreline of 1-1 is high.
