Here are our three top picks if you’re looking to bet on Reading’s trip to Wigan Athletic.

Over 2.5 goals - Evens

Although Reading’s last two games have produced just two goals in total, Saturday’s game may well feature more than 2.5 goals.

In Reading’s 17 games this season, there’s been a total of 41 goals (for 19 against 22). As for Wigan, there has been 44 goals in 18 games (for 16 against 28).

As Reading will be looking to get back to winning ways, it’s unlikely that Mark Bowen will set his side up to defend.

Wigan will see this as the sort of game that they need to win to kickstart their season, so I can see both sides setting up with the intention of scoring goals.

First home goal scorer - Chey Dunkley – 17/2

Reading have looked more composed at the back under Mark Bowen. With three central defenders, the Royals have not been affording a lot of chances from open play.

Wigan have only scored 16 goals so far this season, five of which have come from defender Chey Dunkley.

If the Latics are going to get on the score sheet, they may well see their best chance come from a set piece. At 17/2, Dunkley appears to be good value to be the first to find the net for Wigan.

First team to be carded – Wigan Athletic – 11/10

 Only Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton have received more cautions this season than Wigan Athletic.

Reading, on the other hand, have the sixth fewest cautions in the league so far this campaign.

As a result, 11/10 seems good value for Wigan to pick up the first card.
