Wycombe - Reading

Asian Handicap
Pick: Reading -0.5
Odds: 1.87
Stake: 1

Match date: 23/02/2021

Wycombe sit bottom of the Championship a full 11 points away from 21st-placed Birmingham. However, they were given reason for optimism at the weekend after a well ground out 0-0 draw vs Millwall at the Den. Another tough assignment lies ahead here for the Chairboys vs Reading, who fell to a desperately disappointing 0-2 loss at home to Middlesbrough last time out. 

The Royals head coach Veljko Paunovic had some strong words to say about his side after the match and he will be expecting a big response here. Reading still sit in the playoffs, but cannot afford to let any of the teams just outside of the top six gain any further ground on them and anything less than victory away at Wycombe would be considered a surprise and a failure on Reading’s part.

Out of form Reading tonight will look to revive their Championship campaign against bottom and worst side Wycombe Wanderers. Due to their lack of results lately, the Royals have lost some ground in their fight for a direct promotion to the Premier League. They are coming to this match after losing three of their last four games which has seen their rivals go six points ahead in the fight for that second position. 

This is the best moment for Reading to stop this poor run when they face probably the worst team of the league who are 99.99% relegated. Wycombe sits bottom of the table with eleven points behind the last safe place. Although they have gained some results in last couple of rounds like the win away against Huddersfield or the draw away at Millwall, they are still far away from producing a miracle. 

Wycombe’s performance is reflected in their results and until now they have managed to get only four wins out of 30 games and they are having one of the worst seasons by any side in recent history of Championship. In addition to that, they have also the worst defense conceding 51 goals in 30 matches and second worst attack with just 22 goals.


In this match I expect both teams to go for the win as their only option. If Wycombe wants to keep their hopes alive they should approach this game with the intention of wining it as defending a draw would bring nothing for them. The same thing is relevant for Reading, they need only the victory tonight not only to close the gap with teams fighting for second position but also to preserve their place in the playoff group as they are only 5-6 points from the teams chasing them. 


In this case since I expect an open game with both teams going for the win, I believe that Reading will take advantage of the fragile defense of Wycombe and score goals to win this match.
