Match Summary

3 It's a long shot, but…

Our correct score prediction for this game is West Brom to win 3-0 at 11/1 with BetStars. They average around three goals a game and given the difference in class, this bet could be well worth a punt. 

One to Watch: Dwight Gayle

The on-loan Newcastle forward has proven to be a brilliant bit of business by West Brom and has already scored six goals this season. He has always scored goals wherever he has been and he already looks like this league is slightly beneath him and you would not put it past him to go and score 20 goals this campaign. He is quick and deadly inside the box, whilst also having the ability to produce brilliant efforts from outside the box.

West Brom vs Reading Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Jay Rodriguez be among the goals in another West Brom win?

In this Championship preview, we will be looking ahead to the clash between West Brom and Reading. We will be sifting through the markets looking for some free football betting tips for you to use for this weekend’s game.

West Brom’s draw in midweek meant they dropped off the top of the table and into fourth but just one point behind leaders Leeds. They were 2-0 down in that game, however, so they showed decent character to come back and take a point away from home.

After a slow start, they are now really starting to get to grips with the Championship and have won four of their last six league games. They are the league’s top goal scorers with 27 and they also have the league’s most prolific strikers in Dwight Gayle and James Rodriguez, who have six and seven goals respectively.

As for the visitors, they seem to have picked up slightly in recent weeks but still sit right down at the bottom end of the table in 20th. They have won just two games this season but are undefeated in their last four away games, including tricky trips to Aston Villa and Brentford.

Our first football prediction in this game is West Brom -1 in the handicap market at 6/4 with PaddyPower. Reading have been in good form away from home but this game should be relatively straight forward to call, with WBA boasting, arguably, the best side in the league with some of the best attackers. They have plenty of goals in the side and you would fancy them to rack up a few here against Reading.

Our next bet comes in the over or unders market, with our selection being over 2.5 goals at 6/10 with PaddyPower. This bet has landed in three of West Brom’s last four games and in three of Reading’s last four away trips, so this could be a bit of a banker for this game.

Predicted Score: West Brom 3 - 0 Reading
