Tuesday night’s late kick-off at the Madjeski Stadium sees in-form Reading entertain a Portsmouth side looking increasingly destined for League One.
The Royals go into the game on the back of six straight wins, their latest coming after being a goal down at Millwall on Saturday.
That Andy Keogh strike was the only goal Reading have conceded in over nine hours of Championship football and only Hull City have leaked fewer goals in the division overall.
In contrast, only fellow strugglers Bristol City have picked up fewer points in the last eight games than Portsmouth.
That poor form, coupled with their ten-point deduction for going into administration, has left the south-coast club five points adrift of safety.
With only Doncaster Rovers and Coventry City having a worse record on the road than Pompey, they will be desperate for any kind of result, though their slim chances of winning are shown in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
You can get a price of 13/2 for the unlikely away victory, with Reading firm favourites for at 12/25 and the draw priced up at 27/10.
With the home side in such impressive form, you might be tempted to back them to win without conceding at 5/4, and punters who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com on this tip will see a return of £56.25 if they are right in doing so.
Back in August, Portsmouth ran out 1-0 winners in the return fixture at Fratton Park and an unlikely repeat of that scoreline is a massive 15/1.
However, it is perhaps more likely for Reading to capitalise on their opponents woes with a thumping victory. They are priced at 13/4 to win with four or more goals in the game.
Recommended bet: Reading to win to nil @ 5/4
