Fulham vs Reading Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

In a sentence:  Promotion hopefuls Fulham welcome a fearful Reading side to Craven Cottage with everything on the line at both the bottom and top of the Championship table.

Last time: An ill-tempered 1-1 draw was played out during Reading’s last visit to the banks of the Thames. Paul McShane received his marching orders in the 80th minute with the game poised at one apiece, but Fulham failed to find a winner.

This time: Fulham are 4/11 to win with Reading at 8/1 and the draw 9/2.

You might remember: During a December 2016 Championship game, the Cottagers were on song and put five past a lacklustre Reading side who were one again reduced to 10 men. If the Royals are not careful, one of the football score predictions for this game could resemble something of a cricket score.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Aleksander Mitrovic has been excellent since joining Fulham on loan in January, and Reading need to be very wary of him on Tuesday

When Reading made the play-offs last season, few would have expected them to be dragged into a relegation battle this time around. However, that is exactly what has happened to the Royals this season, with Jaap Stam making way for Paul Clement as head honcho. By contrast, Fulham are arguably the most dangerous side in the league and this Championship preview highlights the Cottagers’ undoubted prowess as the Royals look set to be put to the sword.

Fulham are 4/11 and that looks like the only way this game is heading. The Whites have been in imperious form in the second half of the season and with Reading only claiming five away wins all season, one of the top Championship predictions is for the home side’s dominance to continue.

Reading are 8/1 to win and that is a remarkably long price for a team that reached the play-offs last season. However, with safety still not assured, Paul Clement’s men will be up against it with today’s football prediction making the home side a better prospect.

The draw is 9/2 and represents the Royals’ best opportunity of coming away with anything from the game. With two draws from the sides’ last four meetings, a stalemate would not be a total shock even if it were to prove damaging to the Cottagers.

Fulham to win both halves is 10/11 and that is worth a go. The Whites scored in both halves against Leeds the last time they played on a Tuesday night, and look good to once again dominate both 45 minutes.

Fulham to win and prevent Reading from scoring is 7/5 and that is one of the best football betting tips for this game. Reading have been poor on the road this season with just 20 points from 20 games.

Predicted Score: Fulham 2 - 0 Reading

Match Summary


Look out for:

A red card. Although both these teams appear rather friendly on paper, there have been three red cards in the last five meetings between the pair.

A red card to be shown in the match is 9/2 and that looks like one of the best-priced football predictions for this contest.


We fancy:

Aleksander Mitrovic to score anytime at 4/7, which makes it one of the best football predictions for this game. The Cottagers forward has scored in back-to-back games and is in inspired form since his loan switch from Newcastle United.


It’s a long shot, but:

Fulham to win 5-0 is 28/1 and with the attacking ability the Cottagers possess, witnessing them hammer the Royals once again would not be a huge shock.
