Reading v QPR Tips

Ross Casey - 11:01, 10th January 2017

The Championship is turning out to be one hell of a league this season and we are in for a treat on Thursday evening when two stalwarts of the division meet as Reading host QPR. Our football tipster Ross Casey offers his betting tips for this LIVE clash on Sky Sports…

Reading v QPR Tips (Thu, 20:00, SS1)

Who are the favourites?

The bookies make Reading favourites to win this match, with the Royals a best price 7/8 to pick up all three points at the Madejski Stadium.

The Royals were probably too respectful in their 4-0 loss at Old Trafford and didn’t really impose themselves on the game until they were two goals down. That is something that Jaap Stam will look to put right at the Madejski.

A team with a five match winning run on home soil should certainly not be giving respect to anyone!

Ian Holloway’s QPR side have had a tough season, losing seven of their last nine games. However, the Hoops do have a decent record in this fixture. Reading have only managed to beat QPR once in their last six attempts at the Madejski Stadium! If you think QPR can win here then you can get a best value price of 7/2.

Back your winner in the full-time result market and ensure you get the best possible price using our odds comparison grid.

What’s your recommended bet?

Sorry QPR fans but I can only truly see a win here for Reading. The Royals are on a great run on home soil at present, winning five on the trot whilst QPR have lost seven in nine.

The loss to Man Utd should be water off a duck’s back for Jaap Stam’s team and it is important they get back to pushing for promotion now. This should be a nice fixture to settle back into, with their patient passing game slowly grinding QPR down until the Hoops concede – which they have done in each of their last nine away games.

Back Reading to win at a best price of 7/8 in the full-time result market.

Why use Easyodds to bet on this match?

I’m not necessarily sure that punters realise the importance of our odds comparison service…

For example, if you fancy Reading’s Garath McCleary to score (and he has netted eight times this season already) then he is available at a worst price of 13/10 – or you can use our odds comparison and get a far better price of 85/40. Why wouldn’t you use our site to peruse the anytime goalscorer market and ensure you get the best possible odds?
