Reading v Norwich Odds: Back a draw in the Madejski betting

Reading will bid to get a first Premier League win of the season on the board when they welcome Norwich to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Royals have endured a torrid start to life back in the top-flight as they find themselves down in 18th place in the table and they face a tough task against a Norwich side who are unbeaten in their last four.

The home side do start even money favourites this weekend as they bid to finally win a valuable three points and add to their meagre return of five points from their opening nine games. Norwich look decent value to come away with a positive result though and they are 11/5 to win and a tempting 9/4 to draw with William Hill.

Norwich haven't enjoyed the plaudits they deserve in recent weeks as they have come a long way since a 5-0 shellacking at the hands of Fulham on the opening day of the season. Chris Hughton has remained calm and guided his side up to 14th in the table, with the Canaries going unbeaten in their last four in league and cup.

They have beaten Arsenal, Tottenham and Stoke during that run, while they had much the better of an unfortunate 1-1 draw with Aston Villa. They came from behind to nick a result in two of their last three and it could be worth a look at the 9/2 on offer for Norwich to come from behind and win or draw on Saturday, particularly as Reading have dropped 11 points from winning positions this season.

Reading have failed to capitalise when they are on top and they were at it again last weekend as they let a lead slip to eventually draw 1-1 at QPR. That result followed on the back of a heartbreaking 7-5 defeat to Arsenal in the League Cup and their only victories this season have come in the cup, against Peterborough and QPR.

They have been poor defensively as they are yet to keep a clean sheet this season and Norwich will fancy their chances of getting amongst this Reading defence. Grant Holt has scored two in his last two appearances against Reading and he is 7/1 to score first and 2/1 to score anytime with Hills, while six different players have scored Norwich's eight league goals this term.

With that in mind it the brilliant Wes Hoolahan could provide interest to score anytime at 5/1 as the Republic of Ireland midfielder has been in great form of late and he offers a real threat from deep. However, Norwich's efforts on the road leave a lot to be desired as they have won just one of their last 11 away league matches, including none this season, and they are without a clean sheet in their previous 38 Premier League games away from home. It is no surprise that both teams to score is 13/20 odds on this weekend and they could play out a thoroughly entertaining draw.
