Middlesbrough vs Reading predictions and betting tips for the Sky Bet Championship fixture on Saturday 14th September 2019. Reading steadied the ship after a bad start but Middlesbrough are still struggling for form.
Middlesbrough were hoping for a play-off push this season but started poorly, getting just one point from their first three fixtures. Jonathan Woodgate’s side then beat Wigan 1-0 before drawing their last two matches against Millwall and Bristol City.
Reading were beaten by Charlton last time out, who play Birmingham this weekend, but prior to that, they had put together a decent little run of form. The Royals won 2-0 against Huddersfield, 3-0 against Cardiff City and drew 1-1 with West Brom. There was also a 4-2 win over Plymouth in the League Cup. Can they get another good result this weekend? See our Middlesbrough vs Reading predictions to find out.

The first Middlesbrough vs Reading prediction to bet on this weekend is going to be both teams to score. Taking into account the end of last season as well as the start of this campaign, Reading have seen both teams score in six of their last seven on the road, with them scoring in all of those matches. Middlesbrough’s last two fixtures have ended with BTTS winning and they have scored in seven of their last eight home Championship fixtures.
The second betting tip to get on here is going to be a bit of a punt on a correct score prediction. Middlesbrough have had an indifferent start but they don’t look a reliable team to bet on so we are going with a Reading victory here but it could be one to split your stakes on to give yourself a bit of betting insurance. If you back the full time result to be a draw and have a small bet on Reading to win 2-1 at odds of 12/1 with William Hill, you should get a decent run for your money on this Middlesbrough v Reading prediction.
