Stevenage vs Reading Betting Tips - BTTS

Tuesday's League One clash at the Lamex pits in-form Stevenage against a struggling Reading. Stevenage come into this contest having won their last three league matches including a 1:0 win against Blackpool on Saturday.

Now up to sixth in the division, the home side sit inside the playoff positions and only seven points behind second-placed Derby, and with the benefit of two games in hand. 

At this venue, Stevenage are unbeaten in eight games with four wins in their last six but while the hosts are in good form, they should be wary of a Reading side that remain tough to beat, despite their current position in the division.

Placed 21st, and two points short of safety, Reading have lost only one of their last ten league games and just one of their previous six on the road. Six of their last seven away games also saw BTTS, and I like the chances of a repeat outcome this week. Stevenage have seen BTTS in six of their last nine league games.

With the hosts strong at home and Reading showing their resoluteness on the road, I´m taking both teams to score, and don't be surprised if Reading can nick another draw on their travels.
