Betting Tips for the game
Reading were able to pick up a crucial 3-2 win over Bristol City at the Madejski Stadium. This was the third win at the Madejski Stadium in the last four games for the Royals.
Ipswich Town are winless in four games after only picking up a 1-1 home draw with Preston, who also struggle against the threat of relegation. The result did bring an end to three consecutive losses.
Ipswich were able to snatch a 4-0 win over Reading during the weekend. Our betting tips and prediction expect a win for Reading.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Reading win at 2.20[/bet_tip_now]
Ipswich are at a price of 3.25 to win the match. Yet, we would not pick this choice. Ipswich may have completed a double over Reading last season but the visitors have been quite poor on a number of facets. Reading have also struggled with the threat of relegation so far this season, but Paul Clement’s men have experienced a sizeable improvement in home form. The Madejski Stadium may have witnessed a 4-0 win for Ipswich in the recent meeting but this has been a ground where the Tractor Boys have usually struggle. Our preview would pick a win for Reading.

Reading vs Ipswich Town draw odds: 3.30
Ipswich Town win odds: 3.25
Correct Score odds
Reading have been able to go on a decent scoring run even while missing Jon Dadi Bodvarsson. The Icelandic forward continues to remain unavailable, but Reading have found a number of goalscorers in their ranks over the last few matches. Ipswich had to rely on a set-piece situation against Preston in order to score their first goal in four matches. Lambert does not favour attacking football and our correct score prediction expects a 2-0 win for Reading.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been plenty of games between these two teams at the Madejski Stadium that have produced more than 2.5 goals with ease. However, this upcoming match will be a game about two clubs that have not been in prolific form this season. Ipswich still struggle for goals while Reading are marginally better at home. These factors make our total goals prediction go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Yakou Meite has been in decent form for Reading after managing four goals in as many games. His goals have helped Reading tide over the absence of Bodvarsson. The Frenchman is aiming for his fifth league goal of the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Yakou Meite.
