In a sentence: Two teams who are fighting to force themselves away from mid table face off in West London, but who will come out on top at Loftus Road?

Last time: Forest continued their recent good run against QPR at home, winning 4-0 on the day.

This time: QPR are 6/5 to win, a draw is 23/10 and an away win is priced at 2/1.

You might remember: A fun fact is that the 4-0 loss at the City Ground meant that QPR are still waiting for their first ever win away against Forest in their entire history.

Betting Tips & Predictions

QPR’s form at Loftus Road has been unpredictable so far this season

These two sides come into this in dreadful form and both need a comprehensive win to get back on track, but a 0-0 sounds like quite a sensible scoreline to go for, which is priced at 10/1. However, keeping clean sheets isn’t exactly something these two sides do very much of, so maybe a 1-1 at 6/1 is possible.

The last time these two sides faced off at Loftus Road QPR came out of the other end as 2-0 winners, and a repeat of that scoreline is at 11/1. That being said, Forest’s last win here was a 2-1 victory, which is priced 10/1. But with QPR’s last two wins coming at home against opposition close to them in the table, 3-1 is priced at 18/1 and could well be worth something.

Despite the poor form that these two are in, a score draw may be in order. A 1-1 draw, as mentioned previously, feels a distinct possibility but if you are feeling somewhat adventurous, 2-2 (a Desmond) is at 14/1 and a thrilling 3-3 can see you get a price at 66/1.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

If you want a safe looking bet, QPR to score in the first half is at Evens, whilst Forest to score in the first half is at 13/10.

2

We fancy:

Both teams to score in both halves is at 16/1 and may be worth a small flutter.

3

It’s a long shot, but:

There’s a reason that 4-4 in this game is at 200/1, but when the Championship is coming towards its climax period, anything can happen!
