Betting Tips for the game
QPR’s FA Cup run for another campaign came to an end after a 1-0 loss against Watford during the weekend. This happens to be the fourth loss in five matches for McLaren, whose only victory during this period was against lower league Portsmouth in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
West Brom were able to get the derby spoils after overcoming Aston Villa with a 2-0 success at Villa Park. This was the second win in three matches for West Brom, who are now up to 2nd in the table ahead of Leeds United.
The reverse fixture between QPR and West Brom produced a whopping 7-1 victory for the Baggies at the Hawthorns. This turned out to be the heaviest defeat for QPR in their history. QPR, though, had picked up a 3-2 victory in their last meeting at Loftus Road. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for West Brom.

QPR have not been clinical enough in the final third of the pitch. Steve McClaren’s men have not been playing bad, but they have experienced a string of defeats that would rob them of valuable confidence. Meanwhile, West Brom will be delighted to get back into the top two places. The club do continue to make mistakes but the team can obviously build on the recent three results. Our preview would go with a win for West Brom.

Correct Score odds
West Brom may have kept a clean sheet against Aston Villa during the weekend but the defensive mistakes from the team were quite poor that they could have easily conceded at least a goal. Meanwhile, QPR have been quite mediocre going forward of late but they can capitalise on West Brom’s defensive failings. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for West Brom.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though West Brom have kept four consecutive away clean sheets with none of the matches producing more than 2.5 goals, the game is likely to be a high scorer with QPR capable of scoring with the roaring support of their supporters. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jay Rodriguez has been able to score in three out of the last five away matches for West Brom while he was also able to come up with a brace in the reverse fixture at the Hawthorns. The 29-year-old has become the leading scorer at West Brom after managing two goals in his last two league appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jay Rodriguez.
