Reading Preview – Can the Royals cause another upset?

Reading have had a mixed bag of results at the start of this season. On their day, the Royals are capable of beating any team in the Championship. They have won at Fulham but have also suffered defeats to the likes of Bristol City, Huddersfield Town, Derby County and Blackpool.

Overall, Reading have won six, lost seven and drawn one. They are currently in 13th place, two points away from the play-off spots and ten points clear of the bottom three.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1607 GMT, Friday 29 October)

Reading head into this one having lost two on the spin. After a poor 3-2 home reverse to Blackpool, they were beaten 2-0 at Blackburn Rovers last time out.

Veljko Paunovic’s team will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat, but the hosts are the underdogs against the league’s top side.

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to maintain unbeaten record with another away win?

Scott Parker has settled in at Bournemouth with real aplomb. It took the former Fulham boss a few weeks to stamp his authority at the Vitality Stadium, and now the Cherries are starting to look like the real deal.

Since back-to-back draws with Blackpool and Hull City back in August, Bournemouth have dropped just two points from their following nine Championship games, winning eight and drawing one. Last time out, the Dorset club eased to a 3-0 home win over Huddersfield.

Reading vs Bournemouth Betting Advice

Reading picked up a 3-1 home win back in January when the teams last locked horns. Earlier in the season, Bournemouth won a six-goal thriller at the Vitality, with Dominic Solanke helping himself to a double.

Bournemouth’s last win at Reading came in the 2014-15 Championship season. A Callum Wilson goal was enough for the points in Berkshire that day. The Cherries went on to win the league that season, while Reading finished way down in 19th.

  • Bournemouth have taken 25 points from the last 27 available

Bournemouth are riding high and look unstoppable at the moment. Parker’s troops have won their last three without conceding a single goal, and you can get the top price of 15/8 for the hosts to win to nil again at the weekend.

Dominic Solanke has really found his home at Bournemouth, and the 24-year-old has been in red-hot form under Parker. Solanke has scored 11 goals in 15 league and cup appearances, including three in his last two. Put some money on the Cherries’ No. 9 to open the scoring in this one at 4/1.
