Reading could still be carrying some scars from April’s 7-1 thrashing at Carrow Road when they entertain Norwich in the Championship on Saturday evening.
The Royals also go into this game on the back of a moderate run of form, whereas the Canaries have dug in to recover from a shaky start.
Everything points to 33/20 for an away win being the way to go in our Reading vs Norwich betting predictions.
A Look At Reading’s Betting Odds
Jaap Stam faced a big job to get Reading back on track following last season’s heart-breaking penalty shoot-out loss to Huddersfield in the play-off final.
We feel there has been a hangover from that disappointment after Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat at Millwall made it four losses in nine league matches this term.
“Last season, we sometimes had that bit of extra luck maybe more than we have now,” commented Stam after the Royals hit the front after 73 minutes but then conceded two late goals at The Den.
Even Reading’s usually strong home form has faltered in recent weeks, with Bristol City winning 1-0 here in the Championship and Swansea prevailing 2-0 in the EFL Cup.
We’re taking 17/2 for a 1-0 away victory in our Reading vs Norwich betting tips.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich made a nervous start to the Championship campaign when winning just one of their first five league fixtures, but Daniel Farke has really tightened things up at the back since the international break.
The Canaries have kept five straight clean sheets in this division, prevailing 1-0 in their last couple of away games at Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.
Following Tuesday’s success at the Riverside, Farke beamed: “Our defence was brilliant. When you are working all together, have a big attitude, then this is the result.”
That form is rock-solid and there was also an EFL Cup triumph at Brentford which has set up a mouth-watering trip to Arsenal in that competition.
Looking at the Reading vs Norwich odds, 5/1 for an away win and under 2.5 goals takes the eye.
