Stoke vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

Following a three-match losing streak in the league, Stoke City host Reading in the next EFL Championship outing on Saturday, 21 January. The Royals have also followed a winless pattern before this game, drawing the last duel against Queens Park Rangers.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Stoke City had a long scoring string at home before the last two games and they have also hit the target in four of the previous five meetings with Reading. On the other hand, Reading has been on the scoring side in seven of the recent eight outings in different competitions. Both teams have also conceded goals in the recent consecutive league outings. The teams shared  BTTS patterns in the last three H2Hs and we expect the same for this meeting again.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Reading hit the target twice in each of the last two games and added a total of seven goals in the previous five outings. Stoke City have hit the back of the net six times in the same course while leaking three goals in the last game. All of the last three meetings between these teams have also ended with over 2.5 goals. Based on the present stats, we expect the teams to feature a total of at least three goals in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-2 to Reading

Stoke City have scored more than once in only one of the last four league outings and hit the target once per game in the previous two H2Hs against Reading. However, the Royals found the back of the net at least twice in four of the last six outings. The visitors have also featured the same pattern in the previous three meetings with Stoke City in a row. So we see Reading in the position to take the lead of 1-2 in this game.
