Luton vs Reading: Our top betting tips

There aren't many games that have something riding on them this weekend but this is one with Luton needing a win to secure their place in the playoffs. Will they get the victory? Find out with our Luton vs Reading match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Luton to get the job done

Truth be told, Luton are coming off a 7:0 loss at Fulham; to be fair, that loss was on the road, and they've done a lot better at home recently. Nathan Jones' men have no losses in their last four home games; they lost just once in their last 11 home games in the Championship. On the other hand, we have a Reading side that's coming off back-to-back losses; they have struggled away from home this season, with just six wins in 22 road games. Additionally, this game is a must-win for Luton, while Reading have nothing left to play for. For these reasons, we believe that Luton will take all the points here.

The goals will not flow

First of all, we would like to mention that meetings between Luton and Reading tend to be low-scoring games; four of their last five clashes went below the 2.5 goal margin, with three of those games going under 1.5. In the same vein, Luton have had their fair share of low-scoring games; as five of their last six games went under 2.5. Considering Reading failed to score in their last two games, we should expect a lot of goals in this match.

Luton vs Reading: Let's look at the predicted lineups

Reading have done their job by keeping their heads above water but Luton still have some work to do. If they win this match then they will book a ticket to the playoffs. Anything else will leave them looking at results elsewhere.

Luton Predicted Lineup

Luton Town are coming off a huge 7:0 loss at the hands of league leaders Fulham; they've struggled a bit recently, having won just two of their last seven games. However, Luton are sixth on the Championship table, hanging on to the last available promotion playoff spot; they'll need to win this match in order to secure a place in the promotion playoffs.

Predicted lineup – Ingram, Burke, Lockyer, Potts, Naismith, Onyedinma, Lansbury, Snodgrass, Bell, Hylton, Jerome

Reading Predicted Lineup

Reading have been one of the worst teams in the Championship this season; they won just 13 of 45 games, and are 21st on the table. It's worth mentioning that Reading will stay in the Championship irrespective of the outcome of this match; they will hope to put a dent in Luton Town's playoff hopes.

Predicted lineup – Nyland, Thomas, Morrison, McIntyre, Rahman, Hoilett, Drinkwater, Dele-Bashiru, Ejaria, Laurent, João
