Barnsley vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 26th December 15.00pm

Lowly Barnsley welcome leaders West Bromwich Albion to Oakwell in the EFL Championship on Boxing Day. The Tykes have certainly improved under Gerhard Struber, winning three of their last five. As for the Baggies, they have suffered just one league defeat all season. The odds are stacked against the hosts, but can Barnsley cause an upset on home soil?

Barnsley News and Form – Can the Tykes make it three wins in a row?

Since Gerhard Struber took charge at Oakwell, Barnsley have secured wins over Hull City, Queens Park Rangers and Millwall. In fact, the Tykes have really picked up lately, losing only one of their last five.

After an impressive home triumph over QPR, with Conor Chaplin’s treble helping the Tykes to a 5-3 win, the Yorkshire side pulled off a stunning 2-1 victory against in-form Millwall at The Den. Aiden O’Brien’s late goal looked to have rescued a point for the home team, but Chaplin’s injury-time winner gave the Tykes their first away victory of the season.

Barnsley vs West Bromwich Albion Predictions

West Bromwich Albion win: Bilic has had a fine time in the West Brom hotseat so far, guiding the Baggies to 14 wins from 23 matches. Eight of those victories have come away from home, as Albion have taken 27 points from 33 on offer.

Barnsley, last season’s EFL League One runners-up, have found it tough going so far. However, back-to-back wins has lifted them off the bottom. Unfortunately for them, I can see West Brom winning this one. The Baggies are priced at 8/11.

Charlie Austin has been in red-hot form for the Midlands club lately, scoring six in his last six outings. The 30-year-old striker is priced at evens to net anytime on Boxing Day.
