Reading vs Hull prediction and top betting tips

A clash between 15th and 16th at this stage of the season isn't exactly an enthralling encounter for the neutral. With safety largely assured though will we see the two of them let loose? Find out with our Reading vs Hull match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Reading vs Hull Prediction 1: Draw

We kick off our predictions for this match in looking at the result outcome and we're betting they share the points. Reading have been on a poor run of form losing each of their last four games – including each of their last two at home. Hull though haven't exactly faired much better in recent weeks; they've won just one of their last five games whilst their away form is even ropier; they've taken just two points from a possible 15 on the road. The head to head record doesn't do much to separate these sides either; the last four meetings have seen each team win once whilst they've twice shared the spoils.

Reading vs Hull Prediction 2: Both teams will not score

The second of our football betting tips for this game comes from the both teams to score market and we are betting on the ‘no' option. Reading have seen three of their last four games end with at least one side failing to score – that's a 75% ‘no' ratio. Hull meanwhile have seen three of their last five games end with a ‘nil' in the final scoreline giving them a 60% ‘no' rate. With odds of 3/4 (1.75) on offer, we think this bet has pretty decent value.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Reading vs Hull

Reading

Paul Ince is reportedly fighting for his job right now and the list of Reading absentees doesn't help his cause. Mamadou Loum is suspended whilst a further eight players are in the treatement room right now including key figures such as Junior Hoilett and Andy Yiadom. With form poor, Ince will want to freshen up his side but where does that happen? We see Shane Long as one player likely to drop out whilst Nathan Guinness-Walker could come in for Amadou Mbengue.

Predicted lineup – Lumley, McIntyre, Sarr, Holmes, Guinness-Walker, Casadei, Abrefa, Ince, Hendrick, Joao, Azeez

Hull

At the moment, Hull don't very regularly come up against teams in a worse injury situation than themselves but they do here. That being said, they've still got half a dozen players on the sidelines with Benjamin Tetteh and Aaron Connolly amongst them. Despite those issues and their form, which hasn't been great, they did put in a decent performance against Burnley last time out in spite of the 3-1 defeat. We expect them to go with the same XI here.

Predicted lineup – Darlow, Coyle, Jones, McLoughlin, Elder, Ebiowei, Seri, Slater, Sayyadmanesh, Traore, Pelkas

Player to watch

With Paul Ince on the brink of losing his job there is a lot of pressure on his players to deliver; imagine then how much pressure his son, Tom Ince, is under to put in a good shift. We're backing him to deliver the goods – even if that won't necessarily mean the Royals take maximum points. Ince has been Reading's stand out player so far this season and with 13 goal contributions to his name there is plenty of reasons why Hull should fear him.
