We use stars to rate our confidence in our tips, with 3 being most confident to 1 being the least.
Barnsley 1-0 @ 10/1

Reason For Reading vs Barnsley Predictions

  • Barnsley have won 3, drawn 1, and lost 1 of their last 5 matches.
  • Reading have lost 3, drawn 1, and won 1 of their last 5 matches.
  • Reading have dropped points in 11 of their 17 home games this season.
  • Exactly 1-goal has been scored in 24% of Reading’s home and Barnsley’s away games this season.

Reading haven’t won at home for five matches

Reading went down 3-0 in their own backyard against relegation battlers Wigan in midweek, making it back to back defeats and no goals scored in their last two league games, while Barnsley continued their survival push with a 1-0 win away at Hull, their third straight win and clean sheet in the Championship.

Despite sitting 8pts and seven places behind Reading, Barnsley head into this weekends’ clash as the form favourites with three wins, one draw, and one defeat from their last five matches, as their hosts have lost three, won one, and drawn one during that same period of games. Barnsley haven’t travelled well this season, which is why they are in the midst of a relegation battle, but recent results suggest they are well in with a chance of claiming all 3pts this weekend.

Barnsley have only lost two of their last seven matches against Reading and the hosts have already dropped points in eleven of their seventeen home games in the Championship this season, while Barnsley have won their last two away games without conceding a single goal. The hosts average 1.20 points per game while the visitors average 0.97 points, which suggests that a draw could well be on the cards this weekend and our double chance bet on Barnsley pays out as long as the visitors avoid a defeat.

Barnsley have won and kept clean sheets in their last three league games

Only 47% of Reading’s home games and Barnsley’s away games have seen both teams score this season, which adds weight to our final score prediction of 1-0 in Barnsley’s favour. Reading have only kept clean sheets in 29% of their home matches and have failed to score in 24%, while Barnsley have kept clean sheets in 24% of their away games, including their last two outings against Hull and Fulham.

Reading have lost-to-nil in 26% of their matches in the Championship this season and the hosts have conceded at least 1 goal in 71% of their home games. The hosts have failed to win any of their last five home games which doesn’t bode well when facing a Barnsley side that appears to be in their best form of the season so far.

We’re confident that a double chance bet on Barnsley is the best way to go this weekend and we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0. Barnsley have form in their favour and have been keeping things very tight at the back in recent weeks, while Reading have been struggling for results at home of late which is why we have backed the visitors to keep their excellent run of results going this weekend.
