QPR have a tough time trying to recover from their biggest defeat in three decades as they take on Bristol City at Loftus Road. This Championship midweek match sees QPR without any points on the board and it is their worst start to a campaign. Meanwhile, Bristol City are only slightly better off after managing two points from the three games. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
QPR were thrashed 7-1 by West Brom and the performance was branded as ‘unacceptable’ by manager Steve McClaren. QPR have lost all of their Championship games this season.
Bristol City have lost back-to-back games in all competitions as Middlesbrough are able to get a 2-0 win at Ashton Gate during the weekend. Bristol are still awaiting their first league win of the season.
The recent match between Bristol and QPR ended up as a 2-0 victory for the former at Ashton Gate Stadium. Bristol’s last trip to the Loftus Road saw them pick up a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

A Bristol City win is at a price of 2.90 while QPR are at a slightly lower 2.60 for the same outcome. Yet, both teams head into the game with poor morale given by their early-season results. Steve McClaren will have to ponder over a lot of aspects prior to this match, as QPR have just been humiliated with a huge defeat. Hence, there will be a defensive approach from QPR in order to be mindful of suffering yet another big defeat. Our preview would back a draw.

QPR win odds: 2.60
Bristol City win odds: 2.90
Correct Score odds
The two clubs have had a mediocre run in front of goal but QPR’s 7-1 defeat against West Brom can be dismissed as a one-off. The capitulation against the Baggies is unlikely to be repeated and Bristol have also not displayed a huge deal going forward to expect a high-scoring match. Our correct score prediction anticipates a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
QPR will be extremely cautious about conceding goals in this match, as the team could be taken for a ride if they were to suffer back-to-back losses. McClaren’s job at QPR is already under a lot of fire and a defensive performance would not hurt the team. Bristol have also averaged only a goal per game in recent matches against QPR. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Andreas Weimann once again had the bulk of opportunities against Middlesbrough, as he had six shots with two finding the target. Weimann has already come up with goals in two out of his three league appearances so far. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Weimann.
