Bitesize Prediction: Luton vs Barnsley – 08/02/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Luton win

Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has been a hugely impressive run of form, Luton will welcome Barnsley to Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend extending on their FA Cup adventure with a routine display on the road, Luton find themselves finding a real wave of late. Breezing past Cambridge United on the road and landing a 3-0 win, Nathan Jones’ men have continued to impress many across the Championship this season. With their sights firmly set on securing back-to-back top-half finishes this year, the Hatters have remarkably lost just one of their last 10 matchups across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to November 27th. Last seen on Championship duties landing an impressive 1-0 win away at Swansea, the one-time Stoke boss will be smelling another golden chance at Kenilworth Road here. Likewise, it should also be highlighted that Tuesday’s hosts are unbeaten in each of their last five outings in Bedfordshire.

As for the visitors, while the mood in Luton’s camp appears to be at a red-hot high, the same cannot be said for a Barnsley side in the midst of a real nightmare. Last seen over the weekend crashing out of the FA Cup at the hands of fellow Championship outfit Barnsley, the Tykes appear to be freefalling their way back down to League One this year. Really failing to build off of a famous play-off finish last season, Tuesday’s guests have now lost each of their last five matchups on the spin. Sat rock-bottom the Championship table and knowing that they face another stern test here, it should also be noted that Barnsley have shown a host of issues in the final third. Failing to find the net in each of their last four appearances on the spin, it is fair to say a similar home win here can be found at attractive odds.
