Can Anyone Stop Reading?…

At the moment you would think not, and they are currently sitting at a tasty 11/1 on Sky Bet to win the league, with Sky Bet offering a 1/4 of the odds for the first 3 places.

Even though there is a long way to go this season, after 8 games they have won 7, drawn 1 and lost 0 scoring 15 goals and conceding only 3 and you would struggle to oppose Veljko Paunović and his team of ‘royal’ world beaters who have seen off some handy teams including Blackburn last weekend away from home.

The last five years the average points for the top of the league is 94.6 (bumped up by Wolves 99 points), 85.2 points gets you third (81 did last season).
To get 94 points they need 1.89 PPG, and to get 85 it’s 1.65 PPG.

There next three fixtures are Coventry away, Preston home & Stoke home and if they win those matches they will shorten dramatically in the betting so now is as good as ever to get some value on the 11/1.

Looking back at previous seasons and Leeds and Swansea were joint top with 17 points after 8 games last season. Leeds were top with 18 from 8 two seasons ago. Wolves and Leeds both had 17 points after 8 games in 17/18, so Reading sitting with 22 points after 8 matches this season looks extremely handy.
