A relieved Reading outfit welcome Norwich City to the Madejski Stadium hoping for a continuation of positivity. Reading are out of the bottom after managing a first win of the season, which lifted them to 22nd in the table. Norwich City, meanwhile, are still unable to build their push into the top 10 places as they remain 16th with only eight points on board. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Reading were not only able to arrest back-to-back defeats in all competitions but they also came on the right side of a 3-2 rollercoaster against Preston North End.

Norwich were able to register a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough in the recent league match. Daniel Farke’s men were able to offer excellent work rate and were fully deserving of their three points.

The recent meeting between these two teams produced a highly entertaining 3-2 victory in favour of Norwich at Carrow Road. The last meeting at the Madejski Stadium also produced a win for Norwich but by a 2-1 score. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Norwich City.

Match odds

Reading may have just picked up their first win of the season but that does not make them a strong pick at 3.00. Norwich City have been going through a good period where they can accumulate points and move up the table. The run of just one defeat in the last five games is a testament of Norwich’s improved form when they also have an excellent head-to-head record against Reading after winning the last three encounters without exception. Our preview would opt for a win for the visitors.

Reading vs Norwich City draw odds: 3.30

Reading win odds: 3.00

Correct Score odds

Norwich have shown an ability to create chances by sheer hard work and they were able to enjoy a clean sheet for the first time in four games during the weekend. However, Reading have shown an eye for goal in recent weeks with the team failing to score only once – in a League Cup match against Premier League outfit Watford – in the last four. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for Norwich.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The recent match between Norwich and Reading has been in line with most of the recent head-to-head meetings between the two clubs, which have produced an aggregate score of 11-15 in the last six. The two teams are more than capable of scoring in this game and our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Teemu Pukki has been able to score in his last three matches without exception. He has now taken his tally to three goals in his 7 Championship games this season. Despite playing as an attacking midfielder, our first goalscorer prediction would back Teemu Pukki on current form.
