Burton Albion v Queens Park Rangers Betting Predictions and Match Preview
In what is threatening to be an extremely close relegation battle this season, Burton and Queens Park Rangers are two of the teams with reason to worry, with the pair separated by just six points in the lower reaches of the Championship table.
Despite their struggles and weekend FA Cup exits, both sides actually come into this contest in pretty good form, collecting ten and eight points respectively from their previous five matches in the league, but it is the Brewers who are installed as 50% favourites to come out on top by our KickOff predictive algorithm.
Last season’s score
Interestingly, the Midlands outfit have never lost to the team from West London, albeit that they have only met four times before in all competitions, with the clash at Loftus Road earlier this season finishing in a drab 0-0 draw.
Ian Holloway’s charges have struggled to find the net on their travels in recent weeks, drawing a blank five times in six trips of late, so we do not expect both teams to score (51% chance) in an encounter that could easily end 1-0 (13% chance).
Top betting tips and predictions
In addition to having to put up with plenty of poor performances, supporters of QPR have not exactly been treated to much by way of excitement either, with seven of their side’s previous nine games on the road serving up under 2.5 goals (54% chance).
Nigel Clough’s charges do not possess a great deal of firepower, meaning that Tom Naylor (5% chance), Lloyd Dyer (7% chance) and Tom Flanagan have been the men responsible for their last seven goals, so one of this trio could well break the deadlock again here.
