​​Stevenage vs Reading: Top free betting tips

Can the Stags continue their promotion push? Our Stevenage vs Reading prediction is for a game with few goals that could be decided by a single moment of brilliance. 

Stevenage have been very solid at home all season (W6 D6 L1) and this is enough to keep them in the top 6 for now. The Stags don’t have room for any errors though. Reading remain in the relegation zone and under huge pressure, both externally and internally. Can the Royals find a way to stay in the division despite all their off-the-field issues? 

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Our first Stevenage vs Reading prediction is that there will be no more than 2 total goals scored in this match. All of Reading’s last 5 games stayed under 2.5 goals. The Stags also saw 3 of their last 4 matches produce fewer than 3 goals. This also happened in 4 of the last 6 H2Hs.

Both teams to score prediction: No

Following the logic from our first Stevenage vs Reading, prediction comes our next free betting tip. We don’t think that both teams will find the back of the net in this game. 

In only 1 of the last 6 H2Hs both sides scored. Also, 3 of Stevenage’s last 4 matches and 3 of Reading’s last 5 had a clean sheet in them. 

​​​​Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Stevenage

Our final Stevenage vs Reading prediction backs the hosts to edge this game 1-0. This was the exact scoreline with which the Stags won 2 of their last 3 league games.

Stevenage scored exactly 1 goal in 3 of their last 4 home league matches. At the same time, Reading conceded exactly 1 goal in 3 of their last 4 games, losing one of those 0-1.
