Chester v Barnsley: Underdogs to oust League One adversaries
Chester and Barnsley put up their dukes for the second time in ten days, scrapping for the right to call themselves Middlesbrough’s FA Cup third round hosts.
After failing to see off the Conference side at Oakwell, the Tykes step into upset territory here, with Steve Burr’s side great value at 16/5.
A Deva Stadium victory for the south Yorkshire side pays at 10/11, next to the 12/5 that says the pair won’t be separated after 90 minutes for the second meeting in succession.
In addition to this exceptional match-betting spread, we’ve dug out a further three great-value bets that are sure to whip the punting masses up into a frenzy.
If Chester’s enormous 16/5 to prevail without the assistance of a goal head start wasn’t good enough, then there can be no arguments levelled at this offering.
The Seals haven’t needed a boosted scoreline to win six of their last eight at home, while an extra goal would’ve ensured triumph in the two remaining matches in this sequence.
The scores have been level at the interval in each of Chester’s last five home matches.
Backers of this punt would’ve also copped a profit in half of Barnsley’s previous four, as they would have done in the goalless draw the pair played out in their second-round proper meeting.
The aforementioned bagel bonanza at Oakwell suggests that the duo are well-matched and another cagey contest looms here.
Seven of Chester’s previous ten home games have yielded a low enough number of goals to reward the under-lovers, while two of the three Tykes matches preceding this one would’ve ensured a profit too.
