Reading - Blackburn Rovers betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:00 on 17/08/2022 played @ Madejski Stadium refereed by Keith Stroud

The hosts will have little to hope for in this match. The betting odds work against them and so does the overall impression. They are a weaker side here and it would be a proper upset if they manage to beat Blackburn Rovers.

No outcome of this match would catch us by surprise. It’s a rarely fair matchup, though that’s not always good for betting. Currently, though, The Rovers are somewhat more likely to triumph with betting odds of 2.30 on them winning.

Reading want to forget their previous Championship match. Playing away from home they conceded early in the first half and never recovered. As a result, the Rotherham United away defeat is definitely something they want to put behind them as soon as possible.

Blackburn are coming off of a notable home victory in the previous round. Top online bookmakers and most Championship betting predictions saw them as the clear underdogs compared to West Bromwich Albion. However, they took an unexpected lead in the early game and eventually finished the game with a 2:1 lead.

Looking over the home team’s recent record, we can see a worrying trend. They’ve conceded more than 5 goals over the past 3 matches alone, indicating problems in their defensive lineup.

The visiting team are doing rather well offensively – at least as far as their latest 3 matches can tell us. They’ve scored more than 5 times in total over the course of these games.

Most bookies are expecting the away team to take the win based on the previous time we saw this matchup play in the Championship. Although the records are only as recent as the previous season, Blackburn Rovers defeated The Royals with a convincing goal difference.

With no injuries reported on either side of the pitch, both coaches have their full rosters at their disposal. As such, the odds remain firmly in the visitors’ favour.

Our advice is to stay on the safe side and go for the Over 2.5 Goals market. It’s reliable, very probable, and available at odds of 2.10 if you use the bet365 sportsbook.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Over 2,5 2.10 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 2:1
