Sunderland vs Reading: Top Free Betting Tips

After getting knocked out of FA Cup against Fulham, Sunderland plays the next Premier League game against Reading on Saturday, 11 February. The Royals have raised a winless pattern in the league with one defeat and two draws before this game.

Match Result Prediction: Sunderland to Win

Sunderland has registered only one victory in the last five outings in all competitions but the team has done a little better at home. The Black Cats have recorded alternative wins and defeats in hosting duels, winning three of the last five. However, Reading has not improved in a way duels and are winless in the last five visits, losing four of them. Three of the last five H2Hs at Sunderland’s home have also been in the favour of the hosts. So we back the Black Cats to fancy their chances in front of the home fans once again.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

All of the last five H2Hs of these teams have ended with over 2.5 goals in different competitions. Sunderland has rattled the net nine times in the last five league outings at home while allowing goals in three of them. Reading has also managed an average of one goal per game in the previous five league games. On the defensive end, the Royals conceded ten goals in the same course with zero clean sheets. Hence, a high-scoring total will be our next pick for this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Sunderland

Sunderland scored twice in each of the last two home attempts and has scored at least twice in three of the previous five hosting league games. Reading has also held a poor defence recently and allowed more than once in all of the last four duels, allowing 11 in total. Sunderland has leaked only six goals in the previous five Championship games at home and will be confident to limit the rivals as Reading scored more than once in only one of the last five visits. Given this, we predict a 2-1 scoreline for the hosts in this game.
