Reading FC vs Middlesbrough FC – Betting Tips for the game

Reading went winless for the sixth game on the bounce after they managed only a 1-1 draw against Rotherham United on the road. Joe Mattock denied Reading a much-needed win by scoring Rotherham’s equaliser in the 90th minute.

Middlesbrough are on a four-match winless run with their recent league game ending in a 2-1 defeat at Queens Park Rangers. They suffered further disappointment in the League Cup in midweek after Burton secured a surprise 1-0 win at the quarter-final stage.

The previous encounter between the teams was at the Riverside Stadium in February when Middlesbrough won 2-1. The last meeting at the Madejski Stadium also went in Middlesbrough’s favour by a 2-0 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Prediction and betting tip:
Draw at 3.25   

Reading FC vs Middlesbrough FC – Match odds

Reading are priced at 4.75 for the win while Middlesbrough are at 1.87 for the same result. Reading are lying at the tail-end of the standings this term but they have still shown the tendency to score regularly in their home turf which has kept them aloft from the drop zone. Hence, we are anticipating them to avoid a defeat against Boro, who despite possessing the league’s best defensive record have struggled in the scoring department. Our preview fancies a score draw.

Match Prediction:
Draw at 3.25   

Reading win odds: 4.75

Middlesbrough win odds: 1.87

Reading FC vs Middlesbrough FC – Correct Score odds

Reading have netted 10 goals in their past five matches at the Madejski Stadium and this is vastly superior to Middlesbrough’s tally of five goals in their previous five away trips. Reading may not enjoy a similar scoring prowess against a Tony Pulis’ side, who have not conceded more than once in 80 percent of their games on the road. Our correct score prediction would back a 1-1 draw.

Correct Score Prediction:
1-1 draw at 6.00   

Reading FC vs Middlesbrough FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Reading have witnessed 33 goals from their 11 home matches this term, which translates into an average of three goals per game. Middlesbrough’s previous five trips to this stadium have produced a maximum of two goals. Our total goals prediction is to go for less than 2.5 goals.

Goals odds and prediction:
Total goals under 2.5 at 1.65   

Reading FC vs Middlesbrough FC – First Goalscorer odds

Sam Baldock recently ended a six-match goalless streak against Rotherham United and this should provide him with the much-needed confidence for the upcoming clash. The 29-year-old has already opened the scoring on three occasions for Reading and he has a chance of repeating the feat with the additional penalty-taking duties bestowed upon him. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Baldock.

First goalscorer prediction:
Sam Baldock at 9.00
