Tips for the Boxing Day game, brought to you by Coral

CITY's festive fixtures start with a trip to Reading. Let’s see where the smart money is going according to official partner Coral…

Both Teams to Score is the bet that jumps off the page, paying out in eight of Norwich’s 11 away days this season. Coral offer 3/4 for another here.

Over 2.5 Goals also looks solid, delivering in eight of Norwich’s last nine away and four of Reading’s last five at home. You’ll get a double-your-money Evens.

Reading have dropped points in six of their eight matches v Top Ten teams, so the Draw and Away Win appeal. But the smart move is to boost the respective 23/10 and 31/20 available by doubling up with an ‘Over the Goals’ bet.

The Norwich Win & Over 2.5 Goals is on offer at 13/4. While the Draw & Over 2.5 Goals is on offer at a chunky looking 10/1.

If you prefer the Draw & UNDER 2.5 Goals option, you’ll get 3/1. But considering the two teams Goals stats, you might be better advised taking the 1-1 Correct Score at the much bigger 5/1 (this doesn’t have the makings of a 0-0!).

Another Correct Score stat to be aware of is Reading’s last three home defeats and two of Norwich’s away wins have ended 2-1. A repeat on Boxing Day is available at 17/2.

The best bet in the Goalscorer stakes is Nelson Oliveira. He has four in his last seven and is on offer at 11/2 to Score First or Last and 2/1 Anytime.
