Barnsley vs Bournemouth Predictions from the Pundits

Barnsley predictions

Barnsley vs Bournemouth predictions and betting tips from the expert pundits ahead of tonight’s Championship fixture. The Cherries have had a great start to the season and are just a point behind Norwich City at the top.

Barnsley are also in decent form and manager Valerien Ismael is getting a lot of praise for the work he has done at Oakwell.

Tonight’s game kicks-off at 5.30pm from the English Championship and the home side are 11/4 to win the match. A Bournemouth win is priced at 11/10 with bet365 and the odds for the draw are 5/2.

Below we have found some of the best Barnsley vs Bournemouth predictions from football pundits.


David Prutton’s Prediction: 2-2 draw

“Valerien Ismael has done a fantastic job so far at Barnsley. The way they survived on the final day last season was fantastic, but they are looking at mid-table now it seems, which would be superb for them.

Bournemouth have had a frustrating week, but they are still a very strong side in this league. I fancy goals in this one, but I think it will be a draw.”


Sportinglife Prediction: Both teams to score

“Only once have both teams failed to score during a Bournemouth away game, so the 5/6 on offer for that to happen looks a smart play to a good stake. Barnsley have conceded just one goal in their past three home games though, which is why that price isn’t much below evens.

Only Blackburn have scored more than the Cherries this season, and they have found the net in 13 of 15 league matches. I don’t think the Tykes will keep them out, but I do think the value is in backing goals, and an upset.”


Sportsmole Prediction: 1-1 draw

“While Bournemouth ideally need to return to winning ways as soon as possible, they may have to settle for a share of the spoils at Oakwell. The Tykes have made a shrewd move in attracting Ismael to the club, and we expect the Frenchman to add another eye-catching result to his collection.”


StatsZone Prediction: Over 2.5 goals

“A fantastic comeback from Barnsley saw them defeat Birmingham 1-2 at St Andrew’s in midweek and proved once again the impressive nature of the Tykes’ fitness levels within their squad of players. Here they host Bournemouth, who are reeling off the back of a surprise 2-3 defeat at home to Preston. With the Cherries having conceded five goals in their last two league games, this could prove to be an entertaining contest when taking into account that Barnsley have found the net in all but one of their last five Championship matches. With all this in mind, over 2.5 goals scored should be seriously considered in this contest.”
