Luton Town - Reading betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 12:30 on 07/05/2022 played @ Kenilworth Road Stadium refereed by Jeremy Simpson

It’s easy to point out Luton Town as the clear favourites, but we wouldn’t call this match completely one-sided. The hosts are definitely more likely to win between the two, but a tie game is another possibility. An away win would be quite a surprise, but we’ve seen bigger upsets.

With a matchup like this, it seems like we already know the outcome. Reading stand little chance of achieving anything except an appearance. Most bookies price an away win for this match at 6.50, marking an insurmountable difference.

Luton Town’s previous Championship match did not go their way, but not even the most stubborn fans would have predicted a different result against a team as strong as Fulham . They played as visitors, and the top online bookmakers priced an away win at 8.00. They never recovered from some early concessions, and the score was brought to a conclusive 7:0 result before the end.

The Royals last played a home game, though the advantage couldn’t help them overcome the betting odds which seemed stacked against them. After an indecisive first half, their opponents West Bromwich Albion finally took the lead in the late game and recorded a 0:1 victory.

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.

Reading’s recent track record shows a very concerning amount of concessions – 8 of them in their previous 3 matches, to be exact. While it’s obvious their defence has a lot of problems, Over markets might be a good option for this match.

Luton Town already have a victory over Reading on their record. It happened earlier in this running season of the Championship, marking them as the clear favourites for the upcoming showdown.

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.

An Under 2.5 Goals bet combines the best of both worlds: it’s a fairly safe bet with a high probability of success, but it also offers decent betting value. You can place it on the Betway priced at 2.04 odds.
