Match Preview & Team News
Reading FC are one of the biggest surprise packages in this campaign. Led by inexperienced coach Veljko Paunovic, The Royals are playing above expectations and currently sit in 6th place with 66 points total. The only squad able to knock them out of the playoffs zone is AFC Bournemouth so remaining six games are going to be very exciting. In terms of the odds, bookies have labelled hosts as favorites at 3/4 rate which is not surprising considering their recent results. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Watford’s incredible run of six straight victories was interrupted last weekend with 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough FC at Riverside. They were not far away from another win, had the lead thanks to Ismaila Sarr all until 79th minute. Previous victories against Cardiff City, Rotherham United, Birmingham City and Sheff Wed were achieved smoothly. Troy Deeney’s form is in much better state in comparison to first part of the season. Veteran striker scored seven goals so far and provided three assists. As for the opposition, Royals finally ended unpleasant run of four games without win on Monday. They were victorious against Derby County at home 3-1 FT. Hero of the match once again was Portuguese striker Lucas Joao with one goal and one assist.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Even though their results haven’t been great, Reading FC have been very consistent when it comes to scoring lately, bagging at least one goal in every of their last six appearances. We fancy the BTTS option for this market at 1/1 rate.
Watford FC had a lot of issues against Reading the first time these two teams locked horns in season 2020/21 at Madejski Stadium, getting defeated narrowly 1-0. We fancy the 1/1 odds offered on draw or away win double chance.
