Reading vs Blackpool: Top Free Betting Tips

Reading will be keen to continue their home-winning form when they host Blackpool in the upcoming fixture in EFL Championship on Saturday, 25 February. The Seasiders have got the back of an away defeat against Blackburn Rovers in the league.

Match Result Prediction: Reading to Win

Reading has failed to record consistency in recent attempts, winning only one of the last seven outings with three defeats. However, the Royals have an altogether different story to present in home games where they are undefeated in the previous six outings and won four of them. On the other hand, Blackpool has conceded five away defeats in a row before this game. Reading has also defeated Blackpool in four of the recent five home H2Hs in the Championship. Hence, the Royals will be our favourites to take the lead in this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

In four of the last five head-to-head matches between these two teams at Reading's home ground, both teams have managed to score. While Reading has scored in all of their last five home Championship games, they have also conceded goals in the previous four. Similarly, Blackpool has managed to score in three out of their last five games, but they have also allowed goals in three of those games. Based on these recent statistics, it is likely that both teams will score in this upcoming game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Reading

According to recent statistics, Blackpool has struggled to score more than one goal in their last ten away games. Additionally, their defence has also been lacking, with four of their last five away games resulting in conceding at least two goals. In contrast, Reading has had a good track record of scoring goals, managing to score two goals in each of their last five home games. Furthermore, in their previous five home games against the Seasiders, they managed to score two or more goals. As a result, our prediction is that Reading will win with a 2-1 lead at the end of the game.

Reading vs Blackpool: Form, Recent Games, and News

Reading Preview

The Royals faced the consecutive second away defeat in the last game with a 1-0 scoreline against Cardiff City. The team has jotted down a total of 12 wins and five draws in the 32 league games and are currently present in the sixteenth position on the table. The head coach Paul Ince will be free to report any fitness issues in the team coming into this game. 

Players to Watch: Loum Mamadou (Reading)

There are no distinguished goal scorers in Reading and it is difficult to expect a player to shine. On the other hand, when it comes to bookings, there are a couple of names that have really outdone themselves. one of them is Andy Yiadom, who is injured, and the other is Mamadou Loum. He has received 11 yellow cards in 26 games and this is a good game for that.

Blackpool Preview

After only one victory, the Seasiders returned to their winless pattern with a 1-0 defeat against Blackburn Rovers. Blackpool has earned only seven victories in the 33 league attempts and are buried in the second-last position on the points table. Lewis Fiorini and Keshi Anderson will be out of this game due to injury concerns.

Players to Watch: Jerry Yates (Blackpool)

Jerry Yates has been incredible for Blackpool over the last couple of years and this season, he is the top goalscorer for the team with 9 in 33 Championship games. He also scored twice past Reading in the previous match between the two teams. You can also consider him for an assist as he has provided a bunch this season and three in the last seven games.
