Reading vs Blackpool: Our Tips

All of our tips contain no bias and have been researched using the latest stats and figures available at the time of publication.

Reading too good for Blackpool

A look at the broad form of both Reading and Blackpool would suggest there is little between them at this moment in time with both teams having suffered just one loss in their last five games. When you look to drill through the stats though the picture changes somewhat. Reading have won their last three home games whilst Blackpool have only won one of their last five matches away from Bloomfield Road. Of the last nine meetings at the Select Car Leasing Stadium Reading have won six and drawn three.

Plenty of goals

The next prediction we make is from the total goals market and we're plumping for over 2.5 goals. Reading have seen three of their last five home games go over 2.5 goals with a game average of 3.4 goals. Blackpool have gone over 2.5 in four of their past five away matches. Again, their game average looks good too with an average of 3.0 goals. The other fact to consider is that the last five meetings in this fixture have all gone over 2.5 goals.

Both teams to contribute goals

Finally, we come to our last prediction. We're backing both teams to score in this match. Reading have scored in eight of their last 10 matches racking up a total haul of 14 across that 10 game period. Blackpool have netted in nine of their last 10 outings with a total ‘goals for' count of 13. With both teams scoring regularly there is no reason to think that either one of them is about to fail now. Three of the last five head to head matches have seen both teams score as well.

Reading vs Blackpool: Match preview

Reading are only narrowly outside of the playoff places after taking 19 points from the opening dozen matches; that's an impressive return especially when you consider the lengthy injury list they have. Femi Azeez, however, did make his return last time out and will be hoping to get a longer run out here. Blackpool's ambition this season would have been safety and that remains the case now despite the cracking start they've made; they are comfortably clear of the current bottom three. One area of concern would have been last season's goal machine Jerry Yates struggling for goals; he's now got two in two. That's a big boost Blackpool's attack.
