​​Reading vs Leyton Orient: Top free betting tips

Will the home fans organise another protest? Our Reading vs Leyton Orient prediction is for a tense match that very likely will be decided by a single goal. 

The Royals earned a vital home win on Tuesday but even with it they remain in the relegation zone. The major off-the-field issues continue too. The O’s had been excellent defensively lately and after 5 consecutive shutdowns, they are back in the top 10. 

​Total home goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Our first Reading vs Leyton Orient prediction is for a game with only a few goals in it. This betting tip is backed by the fact that 4 of Leyton’s last 5 matches had no more than 2 total goals in them. Also, 3 of Reading’s last 4 home games stayed under 2.5 goals.

​Clean sheet prediction: Leyton Orient clean sheet

We like the defensive efficiency of the O’s in recent weeks and with our next Reading vs Leyton Orient prediction, we back the visitors to record their sixth consecutive clean sheet in the coming match. Reading come into the game not very high on confidence as they scored a single goal in their last 3 matches.

​​​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Leyton Orient

Our final Reading vs Leyton Orient prediction is yet again an attempt to predict the correct final score. Combining the first two free betting tips we gave you we back the O’s to steal a 1-0 win in this game.

This was the exact result with which Leyton won 2 of their last 5 league matches. Also, 4 of Reading’s last 5 defeats were by a single-goal margin, with the most recent loss for the Royals a 0-1 defeat.

How far will Leyton’s fans travel to Reading?

We expect a large number of Burton’s supporters to embark on this short journey to Berkshire. The train connection between Leyton, a suburb of London, and Reading is good so many of you are likely to opt for that option. 

The driving distance between London’s suburb Leyton and Reading is only 41 miles (66km) and it should take just over an hour to cover it.
