Leagues Tipped:

IT used to be a £100m game – now it's being billed as a £200m match. Mental eh.

The money involved won't make it a better contest as there's really too much as stake and players will be scared stiff of making fatal errors.

Sunday's Scottish Premiership play-off was worth nearer £1m and the English equivalent could be just as tight.

Both of the meetings between the pair in the league this season have ended in 1-0 wins to the home side and in the semi-finals it was good defending rather than attacking flair that got them through.

Huddersfield needed a penalty shoot-out to see off Sheffield Wednesday and while this could go all the way only two of the 30 finals have needed penalties.

I hope I'm wrong but goals could be at a premium and I'm backing under 2.5 and it's heavily favoured at 16-5 at Marathonbet so there's no value.

Huddersfield are favourites at 7-5 with William Hill and bet365 with Reading 12-5 at the likes of bet365. The draw is 9-4 at Marathonbet and that could be the call. In what looks like a 50-50 contest the Royals look a little big so consider Reading draw no bet at 6-4 with Paddy Power.

Either team to win on penalties is worth a look at 5-1 with Skybet. Huddersfield didn't miss any in the semi-final and are 11-1 with Betfred to win on penalties while Reading are the same price.

Bets to Consider

Under 2.5 goals WIN

Draw WIN

Penalty shoot-out WIN

    This little threesome is looking very good already with penalties just ten minutes away.

  2. stagger 5 years ago

    Yup, all three came in. Well done, if you backed any of them. In fact, well done even if you didn’t.

      Yeah well done to anyone on penalties – wish I’d put it up as the SS.

    having strong personal links to reading i feel sorry for them they pushed Huddersfield all the way but lost in the £200 million shoot out lottery and should comeback much stronger next year but congratulations to little Huddersfield your manager is an excellent talent and i hope you do well against the big boys next year.
