Bristol City will be aiming to maintain their playoff position when they host a struggling Queens Park Rangers side in midweek. Lee Johnson’s team possess a perfect record since the turn of the year and the run sees them sixth in the standings. QPR, however, have experienced an exact opposite in terms of form and they have dropped 11 points off the playoff positions following a losing streak which has extended to a month. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bristol secured a sixth league win on the bounce after they secured a slender 1-0 triumph over Blackburn Rovers on the road. Eros Pisano netted the winner for the visitors with 10 minutes of normal time remaining.
QPR, though, saw their losing streak extend to four matches after they were beaten 4-3 at the hands of Birmingham City at Loftus Road. Matt Smith bagged a brace which only proved a consolation in the end.
Bristol previously tackled QPR at Loftus Road in August which finished 3-0 in their favour. The last meeting at Ashton Gate was more than 12 months ago and that ended in a 2-0 Bristol win. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a Bristol win.

QPR have been in a dismal run of form since the turn of the year and they come into the game on the back of four successive league defeats. In the same time, Bristol have maintained the league’s only 100% record of 2019 and they should get the better of their opponents with their vastly improved defensive performances of late. Our preview is to go with a Bristol win.

Bristol City vs Queens Park Rangers draw odds: 3.50
Queens Park Rangers win odds: 4.33
Correct Score odds
Both teams have been consistency in the scoresheet in the past five matches with Bristol netting eight goals compared to QPR’s seven. However, the key difference has been with the defensive setup with Bristol keeping four clean sheets compared to QPR’s none. The hosts should have the advantage in this encounter and they may fancy another shutout, as QPR have failed to score in the past two meetings against them. Our correct score prediction is to go with a Bristol 1-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bristol’s recent trend of keeping shutouts has produced a vast majority of low-scoring matches since the turn of the year. The same trend may be witnessed against QPR with the West London side drawing blank in their previous two meetings against Lee Johnson’s side. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Famara Diedhiou has been Bristol’s most productive striker this term with eight goals in the league. The Senegal international has netted just twice in the previous five appearances but both of those ended up opening the scoresheet. The marksman bagged the first goal when QPR previously made the trip to Ashton Gate last year. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Diedhiou.
