Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at The Madejski Stadium comes in the form of a Reading victory over West Bromwich Albion.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £33 with Betway.
Two sides with altogether contrasting goals in mind on the back of the opening months of the Championship campaign are set to go head to head at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday, October 15th.
The clash in question will see promotion-chasing Reading play host to a West Bromwich Albion in the thick of a tense battle against the drop.
Starting with the former, Reading have proven one of the surprise packages of the season to date in England’s 2nd tier.
The Royals currently sit 5th in the table, in the thick of the race for a Premier League return, and just two points adrift of table-topping Sheffield United.
This comes despite Paul Ince’s men, bizarrely, being in possession of the worst goal difference of any of the division’s top 18 clubs.
Reading, on the whole, represent a hugely unpredictable quantity, with their seven wins from 13 having been interspersed between drubbings at the hands of all of Rotherham, Sheffield United and Sunderland.
One area in which the Berkshire-based outfit have excelled, though, is bouncebackability.
Fresh off a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Queens Park Rangers last time out, Ince and co. will therefore no doubt fancy their chances of a swift return to winning ways up against a West Brom side scrapping at the other end of the Championship table.
The Baggies have stood as perhaps the biggest disappointment of the 2022/23 term, owing to a staggering inability to turn single-point hauls into three.
No fewer than eight of the club’s league outings to date have ended in draws, alongside four defeats, and just a solitary victory.
It should therefore come as little surprise to hear that, in their most recent fixture last weekend, Steve Bruce’s troops, once more, stuttered to a 0-0 stalemate at Luton.
We at 101, in turn, are backing Reading to add to West Brom’s ongoing woes on Saturday, courtesy of a narrow victory at the Madejski.
