Reading FC vs Stoke City FC – Match odds
Reading are offered odds of 3.60 for a home triumph but they face a tough ask of doing so against an in-form Stoke team. The hosts have been in a good run of form with three wins from the previous five matches but they may struggle to pose the same dominance against Stoke, who have vastly improvement on the defensive front. Stoke have remained undefeated for the past six matches. Our preview is to go for a Stoke win.

Since the millennium, Reading and Stoke have faced each other on 10 occasions and seven of those matches have produced less than three goals.

Reading FC vs Stoke City FC – First Goalscorer odds
Stoke have not possessed a standout striker in their ranks but we are fancying Saido Berahino to make the difference this weekend. The 25-year-old has failed to start in just one of the club’s previous six matches in the Championship and showed signs of returning to form last weekend where he found the scoresheet after a two-month wait. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Berahino.
