Reading vs Luton Predictions
- Reading have won six of their ten home league games this season.
- Luton are winless in their last five away matches, losing three.
- The visitors have failed to score in their last four outings on the road, while Reading have kept clean sheets in half of their starts at the Madejski this term.
Royals to Regain the Winning Feeling
Reading haven’t been the most reliable side for punters this season, but the Royals should land a seventh home win of the campaign when they entertain Luton on Boxing Day.
Veljko Paunovic’s charges are inconsistent to say the least after ten wins, three draws and seven defeats this term, which include six wins and four defeats from their ten outings at the Madejski.
Nonetheless, they’ve been beaten by quality sides in the shape of leaders Norwich (1-2) and fourth-placed Brentford (3-1) in their last two starts and this Saturday’s fixture represents a marked step down for the eighth-placed Royals in terms of the quality of opposition.
Luton travel to Berkshire with just two wins gained in their last ten matches (D3, L5), while they’re winless in five on the road after two draws and three defeats. The Hatters have failed to score in four of those away trips, so this undoubtedly looks a good opportunity for Reading to regain the winning feeling.
The hosts have also kept five clean sheets in their ten home matches this term, so alongside our match betting tip, we’re also predicting a 2-0 correct score.
