20/01/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Madejski V Predicted Score:1 - 2

Away Brentford

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Danish striker Lasse Vibe has hit a decent bit of goalscoring form by netting six times in as many games and is 10/1 to score two or more goals.

2 We fancy:

Brentford to score in both halves is 12/5 and the Bees have managed this feat ten times this season.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Brentford’s John Egan is 25/1 to open the scoring – the defender has found the net twice already this season and is an aerial threat from set pieces.

Reading vs Brentford Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Reading haven’t won a home league game since November

Brentford has had the better of the record in the last seven meetings between these two sides coming away with a win on four occasions compared to Reading’s paltry two victories.

The Royals are 9/4 to win but are suffering from some poor form at home with just three wins and four draws so far this season.

The Bees are 5/4 to come away with the three points here, they have won four times away from home while drawing three times.

The draw is 12/5, the last meeting between the sides ended in a 1-1 draw at Brentford.

The home side’s top goalscorer Mo Barrow on seven goals is 8/1 to score first while midfielder John Swift is 31/10 to score anytime.

In-form striker Lasse Vibe, who has six goals in his last six games for Brentford, is 5/1 to score first.

Predicted Score: Reading 1 - 2 Brentford
