Reading - Barnsley betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:00 on 16/10/2021 played @ Madejski Stadium refereed by Andy Davies

Reading might be heading into this game as firm favourites to get a win but they will have their work cut out for them as Barnsley are known to be highly unpredictable and capable of pulling a surprise when it is least expected.

It would be a minor miracle for The Tykes to win at Reading, and they’re likely aware of that. Though risky, such an outcome could bring solid profits thanks to the 3.60 price on most online sportsbooks.

The last time we saw Reading in a Championship match, they surprised just about everyone with a shocking 0:1 away win against Cardiff City . Reading entered the pitch as clear underdogs, but they secured a lead in the first half and kept at it until the end.

The Tykes’s narrow 0:1 loss at home against Millwall in the previous round was quite predictable, considering online sportsbooks priced a home win at 3.15.

Reading are a force to be reckoned with when met on their home turf, which is the case here. They currently have a trend going on with more than 5 goals scored over the last 3 home games, and they’ll certainly be looking to continue it.

Barnsley are hoping to break a 3-game losing streak. There are some clear issues present when it comes to their form, though it’s not too late to turn things around.

The two teams last met in the previous season when The Royals won the clash with a convincing goal difference. Their fans are expecting another clear-cut triumph and the bookmakers tend to agree.

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.

Despite the risks involved, the strongest prediction in terms of value is an HT/FT bet that the hosts will take lead in the second half. It’s as risky as you might expect, though the 4.70 odds offer a decent return.
