Reading - Middlesbrough betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 20/02/2021 played @ Madejski Stadium

Reading may come out on top this Saturday yet, but it will be quite a struggle. They’ll be fighting a somewhat stronger team in Middlesbrough. However, it’s still a relatively balanced matchup, as signified by the 2.70 for the hosts to win.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, The Boro would need to play their best to have a hope of winning. That said, even a draw would be a positive outcome, and all three results are quite possible.

Reading performed beyond all expectations in their previous Championship match against Bristol City . They grabbed an early lead and rode out the momentum until the very end, which resulted in a resolute 0:2 away win.

Middlesbrough is coming on the back of a textbook home win in the previous round. They took the lead in the first half and kept up the pace until the final whistle, which earned them 3 more points in a 2:1 win against Huddersfield Town.

We’ve seen a string of concessions from The Royals on their home turf – specifically, 6 over the last 3 matches. Online bookmakers are not giving them great chances of getting out of this one with a clean sheet.

It’s easy to spot a certain trend when looking over Middlesbrough’s recent history – and not in a good way. Their latest appearances were marked by a high concession rate. For example, their previous 3 matches featured more than 5 conceded goals.

At this point, the clash between these two teams is notorious for producing inconclusive results. They already have several tied matches on record in this season alone, which is ultimately worse for the home team who are considered favourites.

We can say with no small amount of confidence that this match will confirm the Over 2.5 Goals market. Both teams fit the bill for such a wager perfectly, so this is a very safe bet, offered at the odds of 2.50 at bet365.

Betting tip (stake: 9/10): Over 2,5 2.50 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 3:1
