Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Roaring Lions. This hasn’t often been the case this season, but Millwall only missed out on the play-offs by three points last term. The Lions won 2-0 at the Madejski last season and they’re 7/2 with BetBright to win this game to nil.

3 It's a long shot, but…

If you want a good return on your bets then football score predictions can be the way to go. They’re tricky to get spot on, but the 1-1 draw is available at 5/1 with bet365. Throw in Sam Baldock as the first scorer and you can get 20/1.

One to Watch: Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Paul Clement will be desperate for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson to prove his fitness ahead of this game. The Icelandic forward is Reading’s top scorer with seven goals so far this season, winning the club’s player of the month award for September by a landslide. 

The Royals have struggled to replace Adam Le Fondre’s goals since his departure in 2014, but Bodvarsson could be the man to fill his goalscoring shoes. He is 13/2 with 888sport to open the scoring in this game.

Paul Clement could be without as many as six players for this game. Jordan Obita is definitely out as he continues his recovery from a cruciate injury, while Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, Paul McShane, Sam Baldock, Adrian Popa and David Edwards could all miss out.

The visitors have a clean bill of health coming into this game, which could influence your football predictions for Saturday’s encounter. Neil Harris could stick with the same starting line-up that beat Aston Villa a couple of weeks ago. 

Reading vs Millwall Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

The pressure’s building on Reading manager Paul Clement ahead of this game against Millwall

This Championship preview pits the teams currently lying 20th and 21st in the table against each other. Reading host Millwall at the Madejski desperate for a win after losing their last two matches, but the visitors come into this game after ending their own winless run just before the international break. 

Reading are 46/25 in your Championship predictions, as they go in search of their third victory of the season. Just a single goal is currently keeping the Royals out of the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference. Clement’s side lost their last home game against QPR, and another defeat in front of their own fans would heap even more pressure on the manager. 

Millwall are 19/10, so the odds for the two teams are quite close in the football betting tips for the weekend. The Lions recorded a promising 2-1 victory over Aston Villa last tie out, ending a run of seven games without a win. That came on the back of a draw away at high-flying Nottingham Forest, which was only their second point on the road after they also got a draw at Blackburn in their first away game. 

The draw is 23/10 and could be a football prediction worth considering with Millwall’s two draws on the road in mind. The Lions won both of the meetings between these two teams last season though, including a 2-0 success at the Madejski. With the pressure building on both managers, they could each set their teams up to keep things as tight as possible with the aim of nicking a winner. 

Sam Baldock is the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring on Saturday. The Englishman has three goals in the Championship so far this term, and his performance will be even more crucial if Bodvarsson doesn’t make it. Lee Gregory has netted five times this season for the visitors, and he’s 27/5 for he first goal here. 

Predicted Score: Reading 1 - 1 Millwall
