20/01/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Loftus Road V Predicted Score:2 - 3

Away Middlesbrough

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Midfielder Johnny Howson who has quickly become a Tony Pulis favorite with his hard work and energy has two goals in his last five matches and will be asked by his manager to add some extra goalscoring threat to his game. Howson is 23/5 to score anytime.

2 We fancy:

Britt Assombalonga at 7/2 to score the first goal, the Middlesbrough striker has twelve league goals this season and will be looking to add to that tally if he regains his starting place.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Middlesbrough to win 3-2 at 35/1 is worth considering as there is a track record for high scoring in this fixture.

Queens Park Rangers vs Middlesbrough Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

QPR’s form at Loftus Road has been decidely mixed in recent weeks

There hasn’t been a draw between these two sides since a 1-1 back in December 1995. This fixture usually serves up goals galore with twenty-one goals scored over four matches since that draw in 95. Ian Holloway’s men are sitting comfortably in midtable while The Boro are loitering just outside the playoff positions and a win here could see them leapfrog some teams ahead of them.

The home side is 12/5 to win and have lost just three times at home this season.

The visitors are at 5/4 to win and have won five league away games.

While the draw is 11/5, Boro have the joint fifth best defense in the league with just twenty- seven goals conceded and manager Pulis will be hoping that their tight defending continues.

Boro’s top hitman Britt Assombalonga is 7/2 to be the first goalscorer came off the bench for his side in their last game for Rudy Gestede while Conor Washington was a goalscorer last weekend is at 13/2.

Predicted Score: Queens Park Rangers 2 - 3 Middlesbrough
