Reading vs Middlesbrough odds at Grosvenor Sport

No separating the sides

Reading started this campaign in rather atrocious fashion but two wins on the spin after a good point vs QPR have buried any concerns. Middlesbrough fans meanwhile are still somewhat concerned by their recent run of results; they've managed just one win in their last six. Neil Warnock is an experienced gaffer though and will set up to be hard to beat against Reading. We think both teams would settle for a draw too; Reading would extend their unbeaten run whilst any point on the road is a decent point in Warnock's eyes.

Plenty of goals to hit the net

We might have this game as a draw in our first prediction but that doesn't mean it will be a bore fest. Reading have gone over 2.5 goals in each of their last 10 with a game average of 4.0 goals. Middlesbrough haven't been quite as convincing on the total goals front with just four of 10 games going over the 2.5 mark. With Reading high on confidence and therefore likely to be a tad more open it should lend itself to a high scoring game. The fact Middlesbrough come up short on a statistical basis also gives you better value in the odds.

Swift to score again

With our predictions already made that the game between Reading and Middlesbrough will feature a fair few goals we thought we'd close with an anytime goal scorer tip. That man is Reading midfielder John Swift. Swift currently sits top of the Championship scoring charts with seven goals and given he also has four in his last three his confidence will be through the roof. If a chance – or even a half chance – falls his way there's a very good likelihood he'll bury it.

Reading and Boro to share spoils

Reading are waiting for confirmation of a points deduction in relation to their spending but all the players can do is focus on getting results on the pitch. They've been doing that of late with a draw and two wins in their last three. John Swift, our goal scorer tip, is in fine form with 11 goal involvements to date. Middlesbrough are not hitting the heights their fans would want but any Neil Warnock side will put up a fight. Matt Crooks could have a big say on the outcome whilst Uche Ikpeazu could come into his bosses thoughts too after limited involvement in the last few weeks.
