This is a great match up for Reading and even better odds : 3.30 at bet365. This is really value for me and this is my tip.
So Reading last year's play off finalist have started the season really poorly. However, they've kind of turn it around lately. 3wins-2draws-1loss in their last 6 games. The lost was to dominanting Wolverhampton so it's a expected loss, the last year Reading team looks like to get back slowly on track and it's better late then never.
This squad, despite poor results, were still playing typical Jaap Stam style of football : high possession but just not enough goal scored. However scoring 12 goals in their 6 last games is a good sign.
It gets more interesting when we focuse on Sunderland. They haven't won yet this season at home : 0win-4draws-5losses. Horrible. Before beating Burton away last week end, they were without a win in their last 15 championship games. Crazy stats.
Sunderland will hope to surf on that last victory to finally get 3 points at home but this is a bad time to receive Reading. With 16 goals conceded at home , Sunderland are really vulnerable and still without key players.
DNB is solid bet at 2.20 here but I go with away win at 3.30 because I believe coach Stam wants his team to get all 3 pts.
