West Bromwich went into February having won none of their last seven league matches, but “the Baggies” seems to have turned a new page winning their last two and claiming top shot along the way.
Reading vs West Brom, Betting tip
They were able to claim a 2-0 victory at Millwall at the weekend which saw them open a gap to the followers but not more of a gap that it can quickly turn sour again for West Bromwich. We are looking for them to stay clear of the nearest followers with a win at the Madejski Stadium Wednesday night.
Reading vs West Brom, Outlook & Tip
“The Royals” are some way off the battle at the top of the table, having dropped back to 16th in the Championship. They have been regulars near the bottom of the table for most of the season but had an upturn in the form before and shortly after Christmas. However, their good form has dried up of late. Following a run of four consecutive wins, Reading are winless in their last six league matches of which four resulted in a draw.
Over the course of the season, “the Royals” have struggled to get results at home. The hosts come into this clash without a victory in their last five games in front of their home crowd. Only the current teams beneath the relegation line have won fewer home points in the division this season than Reading.
West Brom Form
While Reading are having their problems at home, West Brom is in fine form on their travels. Their impressive 2-0 win at Millwall showed a side who were moving away from their festive season struggles, with the Baggies now winning three of their last four. Each of those wins has come with a clean sheet while conceding just 0.8 goals per away game so far.
Reading vs West Brom, Prediction and tip
Reading have lost seven times at home, including two clashes with the current top three. With West Brom unbeaten at bottom half sides on the road, we are backing them to get a result.
