Today's Predictions for Reading vs Burnley

Burnley have won seven and drawn two of their last nine games on the road ahead of their latest test at Reading on Saturday. Read our top Reading vs Burnley predictions for this weekend’s fixture.

Burnley to Win

With their promotion back to the Premier League sealed and a title now almost a formality, Championship leaders Burnley should be able to play with the pressure off for the rest of the campaign, which is a worrying prospect for the rest of the division. The Clarets have pocketed 23 points from the last 27 on offer in the second tier, and the first of our football predictions today back them to enjoy more success on the road when they visit third-from-bottom Reading.

Over 1.5 Burnley Goals

Vincent Kompany’s impressive Burnley team have scored more goals than any other outfit in the Championship this term and away from home, they have rattled the net at least twice in seven of their last 11 assignments. Reading haven’t been conceding all that often at home this term, especially for a side facing the drop, though they should find it tough to combat a Clarets attack playing with freedom following the club’s promotion. With those factors aligned, our second Reading vs Burnley prediction recommends a stake on over 1.5 away goals.
