Huddersfield Town are winless in five matches so it’s perhaps not too surprising they’re odds-on at 5/6 with Stan James to taste defeat at Reading.
Beaten by the Royals once already this term, they are Skybet’s 7/2 outsiders to collect a maximum haul at the Madejski Stadium, where the hosts have drawn as many as they’ve won.
That statistic might nudge a few punters towards BetVictor’s 13/5 about the sides playing out an inconclusive affair.
Also potentially popular is bet365’s 7/2 for a score draw, Ladbrokes quote a 1-1 result at 13/2 and it’s 9/2 courtesy of William Hill to be level at the end of each half.
As outsiders, meanwhile, Mark Robins’ men benefit from a goal start in betway’s handicaps at 19/20 and they’re 9/4 with bet365 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
But Reading have been far from convincing on their own turf of late, taking just two points from their last five home fixtures and that will give Town confidence.
They’re 5/1 (Paddy Power) to translate that into a triumph by a one-goal margin and in a match that’s odds-on at 4/5 via bet365 to see both teams find the net, some might fancy Stan James’ 14/1 about Town registering a 2-1 triumph.
In what looks set to be a tight affair, a case can be made for an away success following a level first half at 9/1 (Stan James).
And it’s a tempting 21/20 at BetVictor for the deadlock to be broken after the 28th minute.
Winner.com go 6/4 about that opening goal coming from a Town player and following his strike in midweek, Town marksman Nahki Wells is well fancied at 15/2 with BetVictor to put Robins’ troops 1-0 in front.
