8 points Leeds beat Barnsley (UK Football Championship) @2.36 Pinnacle
Barnsley take on Leeds this weekend and im going for a promotion chasing Leeds team to overcome bottom of the table Barnsley.
Barnsley started the season well but have been on a downward spiral for some time now and find themselves at the foot of the table. At home they have played 13 games winning 2, drawing 4 and losing 7 but they havent won at home since the 1st Sept and have only achieved 2 points in their last 9 home games. Their main problem has been scoring as they have only scored 10 goals at home and havent scored more than 1 goal in any home game - away from home they have scored 16 goals but 5 of those came in one game against Birmingham and they have only scored more than 1 goal in 3 away games. They have conceded 19 home goals and apart from those 2 early wins they have not kept a clean sheet at home.
Leeds are just outside the play off places at the moment and if you look at my profile page you can see that i went for them to win this league at the start of the season @ 13 each way so there is still a good chance for the each way bet to pay out (im not sure they can win the title now but you never know). They have played much better at home than they have away and they would have been even higher up the league if their away form had been similar to the teams around them but they have played well way from home against the tems in the bottom third with 3 wins and 2 draws in their 5 games and will see this as a game they can definatly win.
in summary this is a local Yorkshire derby so both teams will be up for this match but the strength of Leeds should come through and I think that they will win this match although it will probably be quite close.
