Reading vs Sheffield Utd: Top Free Betting Tips

Reading will be preparing to face Sheffield United and focus on extending their home-winning pattern on Tuesday, 7 March. The Royals dropped three points in the last game against Middlesbrough while the Blades lost the previous attempt against Blackburn Rovers.

Match Result Prediction: Reading to Win

Reading has been struggling in the recent away outings but the team has totally a different story to present for the home attempts. The Royals are without a defeat in the last seven hosting duels and confirmed five victories in that course. On the other hand, Sheffield United have been effortless in the away outings as they are winless in the previous four visits, losing the last two in a row. The Blades have been the dominant side in the recent H2Hs but following the home advantage, we believe Reading will triumph in this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

The Royals have secured a brilliant scoring string by hitting the target in all of the last nine home attempts. However, the hosts have not performed ideally on the defensive end and allowed goals in the last four home games successively. On the other hand, Sheffield United have also missed the target only once in the previous five league outings. The teams have shared two BTTS patterns in the last four meetings and we predict the same kind of outcome for this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Reading

Reading has rattled the net more than once in all of the last six home attempts and added a total of 13  goals in that course. On the other hand, Sheffield United have hit the target four times in the previous four away league outings. The Blades have also conceded seven goals in the previous four attempts in the second division. Meanwhile, the Royals have conceded only one goal per game in the last two home duels. Hence, a lead of 2-1 for Reading seems the most probable outcome for this game.
