My view - I reckon Norwich will shade this 2/1, which pays a handsome 9/1 with Sky Bet. What are your views / predictions? Send them to email@example.com.
FIRST VIEW - Gabriel has been in touch to say: "Chris Hughton's Norwich are hitting a bit of form now, 5pts clear of the drop-zone with 7 from their last 3, and I actually think playing away from home, combined with not necessarily having to win this game will take the pressure off and it might suit them in some ways. Reading seem to rely on keeper McCarthy quite a lot at the back, he made a string of good saves last week but he is out so I'm going to go for a sneaky 2-0 away win, Norwich to get a couple of goals on the counterattack if Reading push forward." Cheers Gabriel, enjoy the game!
