Barnsley and Wigan Athletic go head-to-head at Oakwell in the EFL Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Tykes will need a massive upswing in fortunes if they are to avoid an instant return to EFL League One. Wigan have had a hatful of wins lately and are now eight points clear of the drop zone. Check out our Championship betting preview, with the latest odds and top tips.

Barnsley Preview – Another tough day at the office for the Tykes?

Barnsley have found it tough going in the Championship this season. The Tykes did a fine job to win promotion from League One last term, but they could be back in the third tier for the start of next season. The Yorkshiremen have spent most of their campaign in the bottom three, winning just ten of 42 fixtures.

Oakwell was a fortress last season, but Barnsley have struggled on their own patch in England’s second division. The Tykes have picked up just six home league wins, drawing eight and losing seven of the other 15. However, they have won two of their last four at Oakwell, losing only once on home soil since February.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1810 GMT, Thursday 9 July)

Gerhard Struber’s side still have dreams of staying in the Championship, but last weekend’s 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Luton Town was not the result that they were hoping for. With Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Brentford – who are all pushing for promotion – still to come, Barnsley’s days in the second tier could be numbered.

Wigan Athletic Preview – Can the Latics get the points in South Yorkshire?

After losing 3-0 at Brentford in their last away game, Wigan Athletic hit back with a 1-0 home victory over Queens Park Rangers at the DW Stadium in midweek. Athletic are one of the form teams of the Championship. Before defeat at Griffin Park, Paul Cook’s men had taken 19 points from a possible 21.

Cook’ side went on an astounding nine-match undefeated run in the Championship, winning six and drawing three. That superb run has lifted them away from trouble. Wigan are a tough nut to crack at the DW Stadium, while they have picked up five wins on the road. Athletic have won four of their last six away games.

Cook’s troops have been superb of late, and Wigan will be looking for all three points in South Yorkshire at the weekend.


Barnsley vs Wigan Athletic Betting Advice

On paper, these two teams seem pretty evenly matched. Back in August, the Latics and Tykes played out a 0-0 draw, with Ben Williams’ late red card being the only taking point of the game.


Key Facts – Barnsley vs Wigan Athletic Betting Tip

  • Wigan are unbeaten in the last three meetings, although two of those have ended 0-0
  • The Latics have won four of their previous six away games
  • Barnsley are in the bottom three with just four fixtures left to play


Wigan are a different team these days, and I can see them securing all three points at Oakwell, adding to Barnsley’s relegation woes in the process. I like the look of the Wigan win and under 2.5 goals at 11/2.

Kieffer Moore has netted several important goals for the Latics this season, including the winner against QPR on Wednesday night. Moore is available at 2/1 to score anytime on Saturday.
