888sport’s betting expert, Ed Nicholson, looks at the betting for the Hammers' trip to the Madjeski…
There is certainly value in West Ham at 888sport with this one. They are 6/4 underdogs – not a bad price considering Reading’s inconsistent form (they’ve won three and lost three of their last six).
This fixture hasn’t been short of goals in recent years. The last three clashes between West Ham and Reading at the Madejski Stadium have produced a total of 13 goals. Both teams to score tomorrow is 3/4.
Kevin Nolan has bagged two goals in his last three games for the Hammers, and is 7/1 to score the first goal at the Madjeski tomorrow.
An interesting stat to be bear in mind going into this one is Reading’s inability to score until mid-way through the second half. Only one of the Royals' last 15 league goals has come before the 65th minute. 888sport is offering 2/1 for West Ham to be leading at half time. They are also 10/3 to be leading at half time, and to go on to win.
