Competition: League One

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

In what could prove to be an enjoyable affair from St James’ Park on Tuesday night, Barnsley will make the trip to Exeter.

Starting with the hosts, while Exeter might have been disappointed by their 3-1 loss at the hands of Cheltenham earlier in the month, Gary Caldwell’s men came roaring back over the weekend. Putting in what was a stellar display on home soil, the Grecians cruised their way to a 5-0 romp against Accrington Stanley and the mood in their camp should be at a real high. Now simply with their sights set on trying to clinch a top-half finish in 2023, the Devon-based outfit have lost just one of their last five League One appearance. With their recent flurry underlined by a 2-1 win against Lincoln on March 11th, Exeter have also continued to shine on home soil. In fact, Caldwell’s side have won each of their previous three contests at St. James’ Park by an aggregate score of 9-1. Likewise, finding a real clinical edge in the final third, it should also be highlighted that Tuesday’s hosts have seen 13 of their last 15 home fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, although Barnsley might have lost their Championship status last season, the Yorkshire-based outfit have their sights set on clinching an immediate second-tier return. Continuing on what has been a real purple patch of late, the Tykes were last seen over the weekend when putting in another rampant performance. Eventually storming their way to a stellar 4-2 victory at home against Sheffield Wednesday, Michael Duff’s men have now won each of their last four straight League One contests. With their remarkable flurry highlighted by a 3-0 romp against Plymouth on March 11th, Barnsley have gained a string of plaudits from across England’s third-tier. Not tasting defeat since way back in the middle of January, neutrals could be treated to a lively affair here. With Duff’s side mustering 31 strikes on their 12-match unbeaten run, we are backing an enjoyable showdown from Devon.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Exeter City vs Barnsley 4/11 for Tuesday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
