Stoke City vs Reading Prediction
Reading hasn’t been successful in their recent h2h meetings with the host. Especially in their visits, the Royal has struggled to find points in the championship. However, things have changed at the visitor’s camp this season as they have lost only 7 of their last 26 attempts in the campaign.
Stoke City enjoys the ground advantage on the paper, but two consecutive defeats at home suggest otherwise for the home team. Besides, their winless streak in the league also shows that the host might break their unbeaten record against the Royals in the upcoming clash.
Thus, the double chance favoring Reading will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Apart from that, the favorites have scored 40 goals this term alone until now. So, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably come in handy from the goals department of the bets in the encounter.
