All teams hope for a home draw in the FA Cup, and Huddersfield Town got that when they were paired with Reading.
Although there are undoubtedly weaker sides in the third round, the tie gives Chris Powell’s team a genuine chance of progression.
Stan James make Town 7/5 favourites to book a fourth-round appearance at the first attempt.
The visitors are a 2/1 shot at bet365 to advance on the road to Wembley, but as the teams are just a point apart in the Championship, neutrals have been taken by BetVictor’s 5/2 about the tie requiring a replay.
A score draw has been similarly well supported at 33/10 via Ladbrokes, BetVictor post 13/2 against a 1-1 scoreline and it’s 17/4 with Stan James for the teams to be level at the end of each half.
Town fans not quite convinced Powell’s men will do the business can back them at 3/4 in betway’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
But Town have beaten the Royals once already this term, at the Madejski Stadium, so they’ll certainly fancy their chances on their own patch.
Take a look back at pictures from the match.
A repeat of the 2-1 scoreline is a 17/2 chance at Paddy Power.
Skybet chalk Town up at 10/3 to shade it by a one-goal margin and bet365 go 11/4 about them holding a lead at both 45 and 90 minutes.
In a clash Stan James quote at 4/5 to generate three or more goals, it’s 3/5 (William Hill) for both teams to get on the scoresheet and as match favourites, Powell’s troops are odds-on at 17/20 with Winner.com to do so first.
Nahki Wells is rated at 5/1 by bet365 to break the deadlock.
