​​Reading vs Charlton: Top free betting tips

Who can prevail in this clash between struggling former giants? Our Reading vs Charlton prediction is for a close contest that could easily finish undecided. 

This clash sees two teams level on points and sitting just a point outside the relegation zone clash against each other. Reading have the momentum as they just exited the bottom 4 after going unbeaten in the last 4 rounds (W2 D2). In stark contrast, Charlton are winless in the last 12 rounds (D5 L7). 

Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Our first Reading vs Charlton prediction is that the spoils will be shared. This was the case in 2 of the last 3 H2Hs. Also, 2 of Reading’s last 3 matches and 2 of Charlton’s last 3 away games finished in draws.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

We don’t expect this to be a high scoring. All of Reading’s last 5 games stayed under 2.5 goals, and so did 3 of Charlton’s last 4 games. To add to that 3 of the last 4 H2Hs had no more than 2 total goals in them. This makes us confident regarding our second Reading vs Charlton prediction. 

​​​​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

Our final Reading vs Charlton prediction is for a 1-1 final score to be registered. Charlton’s last away game and 2 of Reading’s last 3 matches all ended in 1-1 draws. On top of all that, 2 of the last 3 H2Hs also produced 1-1 draws.
