Barnsley v Doncaster Rovers Tips | 2nd December 2014


THERE’S two League One games taking place on Tuesday evening with Barnsley’s home game against Doncaster catching the eye of Mark O’Haire (@MarkOHaire).

Barnsley v Doncaster Rovers | Tuesday 19.45

Barnsley and Doncaster meet in a South Yorkshire derby on Tuesday night and there’s plenty of reason to believe we could be set for another high-scoring encounter at Oakwell.

The home of the Tykes has been awash with goals since Danny Wilson’s men lost their opening game at home to Crawley. All eight league outings in front of their fans following that August defeat have seen Over 2.5 Goals punters collect.

Those eight fixtures have produced a whopping 37 goals at an average of 4.6 goals-per-game with seven also seeing Both Teams To Score winners too.

We successfully called Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score in Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Scunthorpe and I see no reason why we shouldn’t get involved again with Bet365’s 20/21 offer for the visit of Doncaster.

A win for Rovers would make them the best team to follow on their travels in League One and they arrive in Barnsley boasting a very respectable W5-D1-L3 in their nine away league games. And Paul Dickov’s men have also bagged four wins on the road in various cup competitions this term.

Crucially though, seven of those nine league matches have seen the Over 2.5 Goals barrier broken with their last five on the road also copping in the Both Teams To Score market.

With Bet365 offering almost even-money on another Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score bet double, it would be rude not to have a nibble.
