      Tip Reasoning

      • West Brom have won 9 of 16 trips this season.
      • Reading are winless in their last 6 league games.
      • Across all competitions, the Royals have failed to win their last 5 home games.
      • West Brom have won 38% of their away trips to nil.

      Bouncing Clear

      West Brom took advantage of the log-jam at the top of the Championship over the weekend. The Baggies were able to claim a 2-0 victory at Millwall to move four points clear at the top of the table. They are followed by a batch of six sides, who are just five points apart. Things seem to be working out well for West Brom, who can add to that advantage when they head to Reading this week having won nine of 16 league trips so far.

      Reading Slump

      The hosts are some way off the battle at the top of the table, having dropped back to 16th in the Championship. They’ve been regulars near the bottom of the table of late, but the Royals had a mini-burst of form early this year. However, their good form has dried up of late. Following a run of four consecutive wins, Reading are winless in their last six Championship matches (D4 L2).

      Over the course of the season, the Royals are struggling to get results at the Madjeski. The hosts come into this clash without a victory in their last five games at home. Only the current bottom three in the Championship (Barnsley, Wigan and Luton) have won fewer home points in the division this season than Reading (20).

      Talented Travellers

      While Reading are having their problems at home, West Brom are 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 have come with a clean sheet, while the visitors have conceded just 0.8 goals per away game so far.

      The visitors have scored in 94% of their trips while winning to nil in 38% of their away games this term. 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’re backing the visitors to get a result. To top it all off, West Brom are unbeaten in their last seven league games played on Wednesday (W4 D3) since a 1-4 loss vs Derby in October 2018. That has us backing the away win here.

      The Baggies have won by a single goal in 67% of their away league wins this term, while over half of Reading’s home defeats have come by a single goal. The hosts have conceded in each of their last five at home, yet just 39% of their games have seen over 2.5 goals. We see West Brom claiming another victory and clean sheet, so a 1-0 away win is our pick.
