Reading-Brighton Betting Preview: High-flying Seagulls can pose problems for Royals

Nigel Adkins' side have made a solid start to the season but our tipster believes that Oscar Garcia's in-form tam can pick up at least a point when they visit the Madejski Stadium
After a sticky start to the season, Brighton may just be starting to find their feet and Oscar Garcia’s side will hope to claim another three points when they face a tricky trip to Reading on Saturday.

Brighton were beaten in their opening two matches of the campaign but have garnered an impressive seven points from their last three games and can be backed an appealing 23/10 (3.30) with William Hill to claim all three points against the Royals this weekend.

Reading have made a solid start to the season, picking up eight points from their opening five fixtures and are rated as a 21/20 (2.05) chance with William Hill to claim victory on home soil against the Seagulls. The draw is available at 23/10 (3.30) with the same firm.

Adam Le Fondre scored the only goal of the game for Reading in their 1-0 victory over Yeovil Town last time out and the 26-year-old striker, who has already netted three goals thus far this term, is chalked up at 5/1 (6.0) with William Hill to break the deadlock this weekend.

For the visitors, Argentine striker Leonardo Ulloa has made a fine start to the campaign, having bagged an impressive four goals in five games and the in-form front man looks to represent good value at 13/2 (7.50) with William Hill to score first this weekend.

Brighton were held at home by Millwall in their last outing but impressive victories over Birmingham City and Burnley respectively suggests that the Seagulls may be about to click into gear and there is value to be had in William Hill’s tempting 13/8 (2.63) for Oscar Garcia’s men in the draw no bet market.
