In a sentence: Runaway leaders Wolves will be seeking a comfortable home win to maintain their 11 point gap at the top of table, while mid-table QPR will be hoping to grab an unlikely point or three.

Last time: The pair’s last meeting at Loftus Road see home side QPR claim a surprise 2-1 win. Matt Smith grabbed an 81st minute winner to consign Wolves to a rare defeat.

This time: Wolves are hot favourites at 2/5, QPR are 8/1 for the win & the draw is 10/3.

You might remember: These sides faced off in the Premier League during the 2011/2012 season. The September meeting at Molineux in 2011 see away side QPR run-out 3-0 winners, their goals were supplied by Joey Barton, Alejandro Faurlin and DJ Campbell

Betting Tips & Predictions

Leo Bonatini is one of a number of Wolves players who will be hungry to get the first goal

Wolves put in a fine display as they brushed aside Sheffield United in a comprehensive 3-0 at Molineux. It is now back to back wins and consecutive clean sheets for the league leaders. With 16 games remaining and an 11 point lead over Derby, The Wanderers will now be concentrating on clinching promotion to the Premier League and will see this home fixture against QPR as an ideal opportunity to take a step closer to achieving their target.

QPR picked up a moral boosting win at home to Barnsley last weekend which will have eased any fears of being dragged into a relegation battle. The Hoops really have nothing to lose here, they are taking on the team with the best home record in the league and Holloway’s men have not travelled well this season; they currently have the fourth worst away record in the Championship.

Wolves are a short 2/5 for this game and with good reason. They have won 11 of their 15 home games so far this season, losing only two in the process. It looks set to be a comfortable afternoon for the Wolves.

QPR are 8/1 to collect all three points and it’s hard to see to value in this bet. Losing three of their last six on the road it has not been a season of happy travelling so far for the London based side.

The draw is 10/3 and is surely QPR’s only hope of collecting something from this one. If Wolves are complacent then there is a chance this could end all square, but it is an outside bet.

The first goal scorer market is littered with Wolves attacking talent. Joint top scorer Leo Bonatini is favourite at 37/13 with recent recruit Benik Afobe at 13/4. Goal scorers last weekend Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro can be found at odds of 39/10.

First in line for QPR are Conor Washington and Idrissa Sylla at odds of 21/2 while top scorer Matt Smith is 11/1 to grab the first goal here.

Match Summary


Look out for:

Wolves to win both halves at 23/10, the home side will want to put this game away as soon as possible and the league’s top scorers have the fire power to make that happen.


We fancy:

Ivan Cavaleiro to score and Wolves to win double at 9/4.


It’s a long shot, but:

Wolves to win from behind at 33/5, Wolves would have more than enough to turn the game around should they concede first.
