Bournemouth -1 goal on handicap
1pt 2-1 general
Bournemouth are already as short as 4-11 to gain promotion from the Championship following their unbeaten start this season and they can continue to justify that price with another comprehensive win on their travels against Reading.
The Cherries go into this weekend's match five points clear at the top having won ten and drawn four league games this term.
And while they have been ruthless up top - they dismantled Huddersfield 3-0 last time out - a watertight defence has also been crucial to their success.
They have kept six successive away clean sheets in the Championship and that enhances appeal about backing them to win by two or more goals.
That looks a strong possibility against the Royals, who have lost their last two games, against Blackpool and Blackburn.
