Bristol vs Reading – England Championship Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Bristol – Reading is a game in which the home side finds itself battling multiple issues: their opponents and themselves. They don’t have anyone to blame for their horrible losing streak except themselves since they haven’t faced the best teams in the division in this time. That being said, can they improve their performance and gain a point or points against Reading, one of the better teams in the league?
Bristol City vs Reading – 02/01/2017
Full Time Result: Bristol 2.30 or 13/10 Draw 3.50 or 5/2 Reading 3.30 or 23/10
Let’s begin by investigating the home team’s recent form. 1 win, 1 draw and 8 losses in their last 10 games. 5 straight losses in their last 5 games, although no game was lost as a difference greater than 1 goal. This streak has found them dipping in the standings, and their next opposition is hardly making them feel enthusiastic. Reading has one the last six official encounters against Bristol City, a fairly unwanted record which the away team has every chance of improving this round.
Reading hasn’t played last round due to weather conditions, and are looking to continue their quest for direct promotion to the Premier League. They are some points behind Brighton and Newcastle, but with a couple of good wins, who knows what can happen? Both their general form and their away form aren’t the best at the moment but should be just enough to see them win all three points against Bristol City.
Bristol vs Reading Betting Tips
That being said, X2 is what we consider a very, very safe bet here – although bookmakers tend to disagree with us. Reading to score is another fairly easy bet, while a “both teams to score” bet can also happen – since it has happened in Bristol’s previous 5 games. We do believe in an away bet as well, due to Reading’s good form and great history against Bristol, which are really struggling at the moment. Find the best bet for you, and good luck!
