Away Sunderland

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A goal in the first five minutes would really set the wheels in motion in this game, with odds of a goal in the first five being at 6/1.

2 We fancy:

It’s not often that QPR score three goals and keep a clean sheet, but against a poor Sunderland team, it’s hard to say no to odds of 18/1.

3 It's a long shot, but…

We’ve made it quite clear that a big Sunderland win is quite unlikely, which would explain why a 4-0 win is priced 100/1.

Queens Park Rangers vs Sunderland Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

QPR take on a struggling Sunderland side at Loftus Road on Saturday

When you get two teams that aren’t in the best of form, you regularly find that their odds for relatively standard scorelines are higher than perhaps a game between teams in the play-offs. For example, if you fancied a drab 0-0 with very little action, that could see you get odds of 10/1, which is more than a 6/1 1-1 and a 2-0 QPR win, which is priced at 9/1.

The fact that Sunderland are really struggling at the moment suggests why a simple 1-0 win is priced at 10/1 and a 2-0 win at 18/1, so it may be safer to bet on a QPR home win, especially when you take into consideration that most of their points have come in West London. A comprehensive 3-0 win is at 18/1 and it would probably be best to have money on QPR keeping a clean sheet against a rather weak Sunderland front line.

Rangers to keep a clean sheet is actually priced at 17/10 and if you want to compare that to Sunderland’s odds of 3/1, it’s easy to see who are the favourites in this department.

Predicted Score: Queens Park Rangers 3 - 0 Sunderland
