Reading vs Middlesbrough Prediction
Reading has just made a comeback after two consecutive defeats in their schedule. Their win in the last game came against a team sitting at the 14th position in the table. In the meantime, the visitor has also exhibited a similar form in the campaign. Their comeback victory after the double loss was against a team at the 19th spot in the championship this season as it stands.
Based on their current form in the league and their ground advantage, the host has a good chance of taking all three points in the clash. Since the home team has dropped points recently, the double chance favoring Reading will probably be the best bet for the punters. Furthermore, the tip for BTTS will also come in handy for the goals area considering both teams scoring averages in the campaign.
