QPR saw a five-match unbeaten run come to an end after they were beaten 1-0 on the road to Blackburn Rovers. Bradley Dack netted the sole goal via the penalty spot in the 87th minute.
Brentford, meanwhile, celebrated a league win after nine matches after they sealed a 2-0 triumph over Millwall. Sergi Canos and Ollie Watkins found the net for Brentford in the second period.
QPR’s recent meeting against Brentford was at Griffin Park in April where they suffered a 2-1 defeat. The last encounter at Loftus Road saw a share of the spoils following a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a home win.

Brentford are offered favourable odds of 2.40 for the win but we are still not fancying them to prevail. Brentford have dominated the proceedings against QPR with four wins and one draw from the last five meetings but they come into this game with a winless record on their travels this term. This should play into the hands of QPR, who come off back-to-back home triumphs. Our preview fancies QPR to secure their first win over Brentford since 2016.

Queens Park Rangers vs Brentford draw odds: 3.30
Brentford win odds: 2.40
Correct Score odds
QPR have scored more than twice on just the one occasion at Loftus Road this term but they have managed to keep clean sheets in 50% of their matches (eight), each of which have contributed to victories. Brentford have experienced a similar away run in terms of the scoring but they remain winless with not a single shutout attained. Brentford appear bound to concede this weekend and this may prove their downfall once more. Our correct score prediction fancies a Queen Park Rangers 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
QPR and Brentford have recently played out high-scoring contests with their previous four meetings witnessing a minimum of three goals. The visitors are capable of finding the scoresheet irrespective of their poor away run. Our total goals prediction is to go for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Tomer Hemed has been impressive form for QPR of late and he comes into the weekend encounter with two goals from his previous three appearances. The 31-year-old has also enjoyed facing this weekend’s opposition with two goals from just four meetings. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Hemed.
