Barnsley vs Wednesday: Barnsley win to nil

High-flying Barnsley will look to continue their fairytale chase for promotion when they welcome relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday to Oakwell on Saturday.

A win over Wycombe Wanderers on Wednesday means Barnsley have now taken 28 points from a possible 30, conceding just six goals in that time too. Only clear league leaders Norwich City can get anywhere near them in the current form standings; form which has taken them from the bottom half to fifth. The Tykes have a five points cushion in the playoff places and are only eight points off the automatic promotion spots, and on current form, you would not put it past them putting up a seriously strong effort of closing those sides down above them.

A draw on the same night saw Sheffield Wednesday end their seven game losing streak, but it was not enough to push them anywhere near towards safety. They sit nine points behind Birmingham City in 21st and need a huge upturn in form if they are to drag themselves to survival from here. That six point deduction could be incredibly costly come May.

In their last 15 defeats away from home, Sheffield Wednesday have scored just four goals, and considering Barnsley have tightened up defensively of late in correlation with their run of form, we believe a Barnsley win to nil is the best tip here, priced at 13/8 with Sky Bet.

BARNSLEY TO WIN TO NIL @ 6/4

Norwich vs Blackburn: Norwich win and under 2.5 goals

Runaway leaders Norwich City can take another big step towards becoming champions and securing their instant return to the Premier League when they face Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road this weekend.

A comfortable win at Nottingham Forest in the week saw the Canaries stretch their winning run to nine games, meaning they are now ten points clear at the top, as promotion looks ever more certain with each passing match. Their form at Carrow Road has been brilliant too, having not lost on their own turf for 17 matches (13 wins), and they have conceded just two goals in their last 10 here.

For Blackburn, they are not ideal opponents when you consider the slump the North-West side is currently going through. Having won just one game in their last eleven in all competitions, they have also lost seven of their last ten on their travels.

Games at Carrow Road this season have witnessed an average of 1.9 goals per game, and we expect Norwich to collect another three points in a low-scoring encounter here. Norwich to win with under 2.5 goals is 3/1.

Swansea vs Cardiff: Over 60 Booking Points

The two South Wales giants meet in the English Championship this weekend when Cardiff City travel to the Liberty Stadium to face rivals Swansea City.

Not only is this a fierce South Wales derby, both sides also have a lot to play for at the top end of the table. Swansea are attempting to chase down Watford who currently vacate the final automatic promotion spot, and Cardiff still have an outside chance of reaching the playoffs, as the Bluebirds are just six points behind Reading who sit sixth.

The last two fixtures between the sides have produced 11 yellow cards and a red card, an average of 67.5 booking points, despite there being no fans in attendance to whip up an even more rapturous atmosphere. Even without the crowd, expect another heated encounter with so much at stake between the two Welsh clubs looking to make it back to England’s top division.

Coventry vs Wycombe: Under 1.5 goals

Two of this season’s newly-promoted outfits face each other at Coventry City’s temporary home, St. Andrew’s, with bottom of the table Wycombe Wanderers making the trip north.

After another defeat in midweek, Wycombe look as good as relegated, with 12 points now the gap between themselves and safety. Coventry, however, have a six-point buffer over Rotherham United who sit in the final relegation spot, but they are by no means safe just yet.

Anybody hoping to find a good BTTS option may be best suited looking elsewhere this weekend, as Coventry and Wycombe are not the most prolific of sides’, as the pair have both scored just seven goals in their last ten league matches. They have not even been conceding flurries of goals either, as Coventry have let in 13 and Wycombe 14 in that time.

A dull affair is more than likely here, and under 1.5 goals in the match is priced at a rather generous 9/4 with Sky Bet.

Watford vs Birmingham: Watford (-1)

Birmingham City make the trip to fortress Vicarage Road as they look to become one of the very few sides to take points away at Watford in the Championship this season.

With home form as good as theirs, the Hornets will be devastated they have not taken advantage of it and provided a sterner challenge for the title. 44 points from 18 home games sees them top of the list for points at home in the whole division, and they also have a +23 goal difference at home this season.

With seven wins in their last eight at Vicarage Road for Watford, Birmingham will be wary of suffering another bad result. The Blues are currently on a run of just three wins from 20 matches, and their measly 28 goals scored in 37 matches ranks as one of the worst in the league. Hovering ominously over the relegation zone means a prolonged dip in form provides the opportunity for Rotherham United or Sheffield Wednesday to leapfrog them out of the bottom three.

Our tip is for Watford to record another routine victory at home against a struggling Birmingham side. Watford to win with a (-1) handicap is available at odds of 13/8.
