Reading v QPR Preview, Championship, Saturday 9th November 2013

Reading have had a decent few months to their new season and currently occupy 5th position in the league table having won 6, drawn 5 and lost 2 of their opening 14 matches played and the players and fans will be confident that they can return back to the Premiership come next May.

QPR currently occupy 3rd position in the league table having won 9, drawn 4 and lost just 1 of their opening 14 matches and are just 2pts behind current league leaders Burnley and a victory in this game on saturday lunch time would put manager Harry Redknapp’s side top of the league table which will no doubt be enough incentive for the players to give 100% in this one.

Reading v QPR Recent Form (Left to Right)

Reading: D L W D L


Queens Park Rangers have a slight advantage on the recent form stats having won 2 of their previous 5 matches played. Reading have only managed 1 win in their last 5 played of which they have been defeated 2 times.

Reading v QPR Match Betting Odds Market.

Reading have only won 1 of their last 5 matches played, but do remain unbeaten at the Madejski Stadium in the league this season and are currently a best price of 9/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) to win this game on saturday afternoon.

The Draw could be a sensible cover bet here at a best price of 12/5 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) as with two of the last five matches played between the two sides having finished all square and not much between the two squads this season, this game could easily see both clubs having to settle for a point a piece in this one.

QPR are the clear favourites with the online bookmakers to win this game at a best price of 7/4 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets for New Customers) but with Harry Redknapp’s side having not won any of their last three matches away from home this does seem a little on the short side.

Reading v QPR Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A difficult game to be really confident about calling a clear winner as with Reading unbeaten at home this season in the League and QPR having not managed a victory away from home since 21st September the logical choice does seem to be a home win here.

However, Reading do seem to draw a lot of their games played at the Madejski Stadium and with QPR also drawing a lot of their matches away from home, the stand out bet does seem to be the Draw for this game, especially with the goal stats suggesting the game to see little in the way of goals on saturday afternoon and betting markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Both Teams to Score NO and Total Match Goals all look worth a closer look here.
