Barnsley - Reading betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 17:30 on 02/04/2021 played @ Oakwell Stadium refereed by Geoff Eltringham

With the odds slightly in the hosts’ favour, they have a decent shot at walking away with 3 points. Still, Reading can pull off both a win or a draw, so the hosts can’t afford to let their guard down.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Reading are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

Barnsley are coming off from a tight 1:2 loss against Sheffield Wednesday in the last round. Their form shows some issues in both the first and second halves of the game, and we’re eager to see if improvements have been made.

The Royals narrowly avoided a home defeat in the previous round of Championship. Playing against Queens Park Rangers, they were behind at half-time but managed to catch up. The 1:1 result is no cause for celebration, though, given the favourable matchup and home-field advantage.

The Tykes are on a bit of a streak when it comes to scoring. With more than 7 over their last 3 matches, fans are feeling fairly confident in their goal-scoring ability. Likewise, bookmakers online are fairly confident the Friday match will yield Over 4.5 goals.

Surprisingly enough, the hosts already lost to Reading once this season. This came as a bit of an upset, to say the least, considering they are widely believed to be the stronger team.

With zero injuries reported across the board, this is shaping up to be an exciting outing indeed. Both teams will have their complete squads at their disposal, so we can fully expect them to bring their A-game.

Though it’s a stretch, a Draw bet is likely the best option when it comes to betting on this match. With the odds at 3.40 with Unibet, it’s not exactly the safest of bets – but it’s quite strong when it comes to value.

Betting tip (stake: 6/10): Draw 3.40 at Unibet
