Here we have a match that promises to be a good one. One of the teams has its sights set on an English Premier League promotion while the other is looking to escape the clutches of relegation. All of this gives us a lot of wagering possibilities and we are going to embrace them.

Reading vs Derby: Our three free betting predictions for the match

Here are the three bets that we think give us the best value. Check out the tips below:

Keep in mind that odds can be changed at any time. They are true for the time of publishing of this article. Our recommended bookmaker for this match is Ladbrokes.

BTTS – Yes

Reading hasn’t had a clean sheet in 4 straight matches, but Derby has not found the net in their last 2 games. We think it is about time for the Rams to score and it will happen in this match. Reading’s defense has to be tired after playing only two days ago and the same is true for Derby.

Over their last 17 Championship matches, Derby has kept a clean sheet only 5 times.

Handicap Results – Away -1

We don’t see Reading winning by more than one goal. The price that we get here is decent given the fact we get 1 goal advantage for Derby. The last time they lost by more than a goal was 7 matches ago.

Match Betting – Draw

Our least liked free tip is the match betting tip because it is hard enough to engage in predicting the outcome of the game. Still, both sides have been relatively unconvincing lately having just 1 victory split between them in their last 4 games. We get excellent value here.

Reading vs Derby: Let’s check on the recent form of the clubs

For a team looking to get into the EPL playoffs, Reading has really disappointed lately. They have failed to win in 4 straight competitions losing once and drawing 3 times. Are Derby way better? Surely not. The Rams finally won a couple of days ago in their match against Luton after playing 7 consecutive games that they either drew or lost.

We aren’t happy with the current form of either side because they also do not score a lot. Reading has 4 goals in 4 matches and Derby has the same amount too.

Tom McIntyre will not be available for The Royals as he has a knee injury. The young defender is expected to be back in mid -April. Derby will be without their midfielder Krystian Bielik for a long time as he has an ACL injury.
