​Oxford vs Reading: Top free betting tips

Our Oxford vs Reading prediction is for a game with plenty of goals. Can the U’s continue their strong scoring run of form at home? 

The U’s lost a lot of their momentum in recent weeks (W2 D1 L3) but even with their form in decline they remain in the top 6 and have all to play for. Reading have been showing character. Despite all of their off-the-field issues, the Royals lost just once in the last 6 rounds (W2 D3). Their battle for survival continues. 

​​Total home goals prediction: Over 1.5 Oxford goals

Our first Oxford vs Reading prediction backs the hosts to score at least 2 goals. The U’s have scored 2 or more goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches. At the same time, Reading conceded 2 or more in 7 of their last 10 away games. 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Despite their struggles defensively on the road, the Royals found a way to earn 3 draws in their last 4 away games. Also, 4 of Oxford’s 5 league draws this season had been recorded at the Kassam Stadium, including their last home match in midweek. This is why our second Oxford vs Reading prediction is for a share of the spoils. 

​​​Correct score prediction: 2-2 draw

As is our tradition the final Oxford vs Reading prediction is an attempt to give you the correct final score. We think this game could easily end in a thrilling 2-2 draw. This was the exact result in Oxford’s last home match on Tuesday. Also, 2 of Reading’s last 3 away games ended in 2-2 draws.
