Stoke City - Reading betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:00 on 07/08/2021 played @ Bet365 Stadium refereed by Matt Donohue

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

Though The Potters are the favourites between these two teams, this is a fairly balanced matchup. All three possible outcomes of a Result bet are quite possible, which at least means we may get to see an exciting game.

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.

The matchup this Saturday is rather one-sided, with Reading seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 4.00, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

In terms of head-to-head stats, the closest point of reference right now is from last season when Stoke City walked away with a decisive victory. This is an entirely new campaign but most top online bookies are still expecting the match to end in their favour.

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.

There’s nothing quite worse than losing a wager to a surprise draw, which is a distinct possibility in this matchup. Nonetheless, our solution is to simply go for a Draw No Bet market for a Home Win – an excellent chance of success, plus decent value with the odds set at 1.57.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Home Draw No Bet 1.57 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 2:0
