Adrian Clarke’s Best Bet

Adrian’s best bet takes us to League 1 this weekend, where he is supporting an inform Barnsley side as they travel to bottom-dwellers Forest Green.

For Forest Green, it has been bleak in terms of results for some time now, but they have been keeping games tight even in defeat.

Therefore, Adrian is adding a goals angle to create a juicier price on a strong Barnsley side.

Recommended Bet: Forest Green v BARNSLEY & Under 3.5 (2.0)
