Baggies to win and BTTS
Barnsley have not just been the worst team in the Championship this season, they've also been the worst road team; Martin Devaney's men have just one win in 22 games away from home, with five draws and 16 losses. Also, it's important to note that Barnsley have lost four games in a row; they have no wins in their last eight games, with two draws and six losses. Despite their poor form however, Barnsley found the net in five of their last seven games. West Brom have been much better relatively, they lost just once in their last six home games; considering both teams' form, we believe that West Brom will win, and Barnsley will score.
Expecting both teams to score
We've mentioned that Barnsley scored in five of their last seven games; we would also like to point out that they have no clean sheets in their last eight games. Both teams scored in five of Barnsley's last seven games. In the same vein, West Brom scored in eight of their last 11 games, whilst allowing eight goals in their last five games. Furthermore, meetings between these teams tend to feature goals at both ends; as both teams scored in five of their last six clashes. On that note, we believe that both teams will find the back of the net today.
