Stoke City - Reading betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 06/02/2021 played @ Bet365 Stadium refereed by Tim Robinson

Beating Reading will not be easy, but we believe Stoke City are more than capable of doing so. The matchup is somewhat balanced, after all, so all three possible outcomes are still on the table.

Out of their home field and heading into this match as underdogs, The Royals 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.

Stoke’s latest away game at Huddersfield Town was an inconclusive stalemate which persisted throughout the runtime. Considering they were visitors playing against a much stronger team, however, the 1:1 result isn’t too bad for The Potters.

The Royals displayed admirable form the last time we saw them in a Championship match. They were ahead at half-time and won the game decisively (3:1), even though their opponents AFC Bournemouth were tagged as hard favourites before kick-off.

With more than 5 conceded goals over their latest 3 fixtures, The Potters’s performance leaves something to be desired. That said, savvy punters could be able to exploit this – think BTTS or Over 5 Goals markets, for example.

We’ve seen some impressive offensive performances from Reading in the past few weeks. Their latest 3 league outings were marked by more than 5 goals scored, which means this match is likely to confirm markets like BTTS and Over 5 Goals.

Looking over the head-to-head statistics for this Championship season, the hosts already recorded a victory over The Royals. This puts them ahead of their opponents, which is reflected in the betting odds.

There’s an interesting development over at Bet365 Stadium. It seems both teams have been struck hard by injuries. On one hand, Stoke_INJURIES will not be playing for the hosts. Conversely, Reading_INJURIES will all be unavailable on the away side. Both teams will have to deal with limited options.

A Home or Draw pick on the Double Chance market covers most of your bases with this match. Keep in mind, though, that betting value at the odds of 1.40 with Betsson is your main goal here. Success is not guaranteed.

Betting tip (stake: 6/10): Home or Draw 1.40 at Betsson
Correct score prediction: 2:0
