Queens Park Rangers will seek to continue their winning run when they entertain Aston Villa at Loftus Road on Friday night. QPR had started the campaign with four straight defeats but they have since drastically picked up form with seven wins to put them close to the playoff positions. Villa, though, have experienced an exact opposite in terms of league form and they are lying in the bottom half of the standings with just two wins since mid-August. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
QPR made it two victories on the bounce as they secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in midweek. Tomer Hemed, Luke Freeman, and Nahki Wells were the scorers for the West Londoners.
Villa, on the other side, went winless for the fifth occasion in six matches after suffering a 2-1 away defeat to Norwich City. The West Midlands side have now won just twice in the last 12 Championship matches.
The last meeting between the sides was at Villa Park in March where the QPR secured a 3-1 win. The previous encounter at Loftus Road saw Villa come up triumphs by a 2-1 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a QPR win.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Queens Park Rangers win at 2.80[/bet_tip_now]
Villa are offered a price of 2.70 for a victory but we are not backing this outcome after their wretched form on their travels. The West Midlands outfit are currently on a run of six away matches without a victory and we are not fancying this run to end against QPR, who have defensively improved since the start of October. Our preview is to go for a close QPR win.

QPR vs Aston Villa draw odds: 3.10
Aston Villa win odds: 2.70
Correct Score odds
QPR have gradually improved their league form after the early season lapse and they go into this game after keeping three clean sheets in the last four matches. Based on this, we are anticipating a tight encounter between the sides but QPR should have the advantage with the better defensive record compared to Villa, who have managed just one shutout this month. Our correct score prediction fancies a QPR 1-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
QPR have generally played out low-scoring matches against Villa at Loftus Road and there has been just one league game in the past seven meetings where they have witnessed more than two goals. QPR’s home run has taken a similar trend this term with four of their previous five matches producing a maximum of two goals. Our total goals prediction would back less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Tomer Hemed has found form since the international break and he has netted goals in back-to-back matches. One of those opened the scoring for the QPR and he has also proved useful in converting from the penalty spot. Our first goalscorer prediction fancies Tomer Hemed to find the initial breakthrough.
