Reading v Bolton Wanderers Betting Tips & Predictions | Championship Match Previews.
6th March 2018 – 20:00, Madejski Stadium, Reading.
Match Preview & Team News
Reading have struggled for points and they’ve dropped into the immediate danger zone once again with just two points earned in their last five outings, hosting similarly struggling Bolton Wanderers for their Matchday 36 clash in the hope they can return to the winning ways in front of the home crowd after five games without it.
They come into the match a week after their 1-3 loss to Sheffield United at this ground and their Saturday’s clash at Wolves postponed, which ended their streak of two draws in a row – as they held off Nottingham Forest on the road and Derby County in a thriller here. Royals have been regularly scoring goals and this promises another great challenge but their defensive woes will be more worrying for Jaap Stam.
Bolton have seen similar woes and come into the match after another disappointing home display and a 1-3 loss to Preston North End, which ended their two-game unbeaten streak. They’ve put on two solid performances at the back beforehand – beating Sunderland 1-0 and holding Norwich to a goalless draw – and Wanderers will be well-aware how important returning to such a streak is.
However, they haven’t beaten Reading since 2008 and the sides have met for seven head to head clashes since then, where Royals earned three wins and four draws. We’ve seen a 2-2 thriller in their clash earlier this season and we are used to rather narrow clashes but it’s rather hard to make a case for the visitors to snatch points on the day.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
We will thus back Reading to bag all three points and back the Home win at a handsome 17/20, which does look great value.
Goals Market Prediction
We hope to see goals on both ends and with that in mind, Over 2.5 goals FT has also attracted many value seekers at 5/4!
