Sunderland v Reading Odds : Royals look the value at big price Stadium of Light

Sunderland and Reading meet at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon  as punters like the look of Reading at 10/3 with Bet365, who also announce a new free bets offer to use on another busy weekend of football in the Premier League.

Looking at Sunderland to begin with, they will have been delighted with their start to the season as they took a 0-0 draw away from Arsenal.

Martin O’Neill will now want to get a win on home soil to really show they can challenge for a place in the top half this campaign.

The Black Cats first aim will of course be to survive this season. When O’Neill took over last year they were in a relegation battle and he will not want that to happen again.

With the likes of Sebastian Larsson and Craig Gardener in midfield, O’Neill certainly has some real quality that will always be a threat from set-pieces.

If they can get their delivery right, then Sunderland could be a real handful from dead-ball situations this season.

As for Reading, this is now their third game of the Premier League as they played Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

The Royals went down 4-2 but can take a lot of positives from their game with the European Champions. At one point they led the match and only a controversial decision saw Chelsea regain the lead.

Brian McDermott will want a similar kind of performance from his side this time out. If they can produce more of the same they will give themselves a great chance of picking up all three points.

Pavel Pogrebnyak scored his first goal for club with an emphatic header, something that will give him plenty of confidence.

Reading have certainly started their season well and now know that on their day they can compete with the best teams around. There is no need for McDermott to change his style of play – he should go and attack.

Kick-off for this one is 3pm on Saturday.
