Our tipsters like the look of goals during a Championship clash on Wednesday evening.

At the halfway point of the week, we have several football games coming up in the Champions League and Championship for this evening.

The match between Reading and Blackburn Rovers, however, takes our eye as the bet of the day. Both teams are on very different runs of form at the moment, but are getting in their fair share of goals at this stage of the Championship season.

Our tipsters have researched the upcoming fixture in detail, assessed the most likely probabilities, where the best value lies, and think backing Over 2.5 goals is worth a chance.

🎲 Bet of the Day: Reading vs Blackburn Rovers

After avoiding the drop by a mere four points last season, Reading appear set for another relegation fight. The Royals have just three points from three games (W1 L2). They got annihilated 4-0 away to Rotherham United last time out and have lost their last two matches in all competitions.

However, in four of the club’s four matches, three of them have seen Over 2.5 goals. Reading may have only scored twice all season, but their leaky defense will come as an open invitation for an in-form Blackburn.

The Rovers have won all four of their games under new manager Jon Dahl Tomasson. The Championship leaders are averaging 2.5 goals a match, have kept three clean sheets, and defeated West Brom 2-1 last time out. Three of their four games have also seen Over 2.5 goals.
