Reading vs Preston: Top Free Betting Tips
After the successive home victories, Preston North End make a visit to Reading FC in the next EFL Championship fixture on Friday, 4 November. The Royals return home in this game after consecutive winless games in away venues.
Match Result Prediction: Reading to Win
Reading has been getting through winless games successively in recent outings but they have registered two victories in the last four home attempts. Preston has also featured the same stats in the away outings but they lost in two of the last three visits. Moreover, the H2Hs results also favour the Royals at home meetings. Reading defeated the Lilywhites in four of the last five hosting duels. So we can see the Royals continuing their winning form at home in this game.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Three of the last four H2Hs at the home of Reading have witnessed high-scoring totals and we will be waiting for the same in this game. Reading has rattled the net six times in the last four home attempts while conceding four goals in that duration. Preston North End have also added a total of seven goals in the previous four away outings. The Lilywhites have also conceded goals in three of those attempts.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Reading
Reading scored two goals in the last home game against Bristol and they also hit the target three times in the home attempt against Huddersfield at the start of October. Preston North End have also leaked two goals per game in three of the previous four away outings. However, the Lilywhites have scored more than once in only two of the last six league attempts. Moreover, Reading has also conceded only one goal in the recent three league meetings. So we back a 2-1 victory for the Royals to add three points at the end.
