West Brom vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

West Bromwich Albion has secured consecutive victories in Championship and meets Reading in the next fixture on Monday, 2 January. The Royals have also followed an unbeaten pattern with a win and a draw ahead of this game.

Match Result Prediction: West Brom to Win

Reading has registered three victories in the last five attempts but they have a different sequence in away outings. The Royals have won only one game in the previous eight visits and conceded five defeats in that duration. On the contrary, West Bromwich has earned four consecutive victories at home before this game. The Baggies have also outclassed Reading in the H2Hs by winning all of the last four meetings. So we can expect West Brom to fancy their chances in front of the home fans.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Three of the last five H2Hs of these teams at the home of West Brom have witnessed the BTTS pattern and the same will be our next pick for this game. The Baggies will be much more confident to hit the target in this game following the recent consecutive home wins. In opposition, Reading has also been on the scoring side in all of the last five outings. The Royals have also managed to hit the target in all of the previous three duels away from home.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to West Brom

West  Bromwich Albion has rattled the net twice in each of the last two attempts and hit the target more than once in all of the last three hosting duels. Reading has also scored a total of five goals in the last three visits but the Baggies are more likely to limit the visitors. West Bromwich has claimed three clean sheets in the last five outings. Given this, we see the hosts taking a 2-1 lead at the end of the ninety minutes.
