Live on Skysports 2: Sat 17.20: Barnsley are 5/2 with to earn a point as they visit Portsmouth in the Championship.
Despite lying down in 16th place, Barnsley have lost only two of their opening ten matches and are undefeated in seven Championship outings. The Tykes’ league position owes more to the fact that they have registered six draws, four of them on the road and Keith Hill’s men subsequently look well placed to glean something from their trip to Portsmouth.
Nevertheless, Pompey are Boylesports’ even money favourites for the points at Fratton Park, where a victory for the visitors is priced by Paddy Power at 3/1 but it’s the stalemate that stands out at 5/2 with .
Neither side is particularly prolific, the Tykes having managed just nine goals in ten matches compared to the ten racked up by Steve Cotterill’s men and on that basis, punters could win big with Stan James, who chalk 9/1 against the deadlock remaining unbroken on the south coast.
Elsewhere, unbeaten Middlesbrough tempt at 10/11 (William Hill) as they entertain travel-sick Millwall at the Riverside, where a Boro victory ‘to nil’ against the goal-shy Lions, appeals at 2/1 (bet365).
Brighton meanwhile, have taken just one point from four matches and a solid Hull side are overpriced at 5/2 with Betfred to capitalise on the Seagulls fragile confidence.
