Reading vs Hull: Top Free Betting Tips

Reading welcomes Hull City to the Select Car Leasing Stadium for their next Championship duel. Both the Royals and the Tigers have a big injury list, with as many as eight players missing from each side.

Match Result Prediction: Reading to Win

Reading have been on a downward trajectory, losing their last four matches. However, in their last four home fixtures, they have registered two victories. Interestingly, these two losses have been their only smudges across their last nine home fixtures dating back to early November 2022. Hull's form does not leave much for optimism as they are winless in five away fixtures, losing thrice and drawing the other two. Based on this, we are backing the Royals to get out of their losing run at the visiting Tigers' expense.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Neither Hull nor Reading fans will have much confidence in their recent goal-scoring form. Both sides have scored four goals apiece in their last five matches and we expect to see a lot of missed opportunities in this fixture. The match will be decided by the slimmest of margins, one in which goals will come at a premium. As a result, we are expecting an Under 2.5 Goals conclusion to this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Reading

On the road, Hull has disappointed recently with just two goals scored in their last five away trips. They have conceded six goals in this period, a statistic that matches Reading's 7 goals in five home fixtures. We believe the low-scoring match will swing in the Royals' favour, who should have enough in the tank to get on the scoreboard once and then ride out the match with the slim lead.

Reading vs Hull: Form, Recent Games, and News

Reading Preview

Four defeats in four matches have seen Reading drop from playoff contention and stuck in midtable obscurity. The Royals are now 16 points away from the promotion lottery and need to consolidate their remaining results. A win at Select Car Leasing Stadium will see them leapfrog their rivals, an outcome they will cherish as they shed their losing streak in the process. Reading has had a fairly good performance at home. They are currently ranked as the 7th-best home team. The hosts have recorded 10 wins, drawn 3 times and lost 5 matches in 18 home games.

In the process, Reading has scored 27 and conceded 20 goals in 18 home matches. In the 18 home games, Reading has bagged 33 points, which is more than half the 44 points they have bagged in 37 games. It means the hosts will be hard to beat in front of fans, especially with the strong showing they have had on home soil.

Hull City Preview

Akin to their rivals, Hull are in a rut of their own. The Tigers have been woeful on the road and have not triumphed in their last five away trips. They have a two-point advantage over the Royals and that lead looks likely to slip from their hands. However, a rare away win would allow them to consolidate their push towards the top ten and a marked improvement on their last season's 19th-place finish.

Hull City's away performance has equally been fairly good. In 18 away games, Hull-City has recorded 5 wins, 6 draws and 7 trips. The visitors have scored 21 and 26 goals in 18 trips. They have 21 points on the road, which is slightly below half of the 46 points they have accumulated from 37 matches. Hull City has DDLDWW in their last five away matches against Reading.
