Derby County head to Loftus Road for a match against QPR this weekend. Derby manager Frank Lampard admitted that his team lacked consistency after a disappointing midweek result that left his club just a few places shy of the play-off places. QPR, meanwhile, have been doing well to stay clear of the bottom three with the team possessing a six-point advantage over Millwall.

Betting Tips for the game
QPR were able to end a sequence of three consecutive defeats by grabbing a 1-0 victory over Reading at the Madejski Stadium. Steve McClaren’s men were full value for their victory.
Derby were able to snatch a late point after the 1-1 draw with Norwich at home. Lampard has seen his team register just one league win in the last five games.

Derby County are at odds of 2.80, but it is difficult to back a team that has been highly inconsistent this season. Derby have been able to come up with some spectacular results – like the victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford, but they have also been prone to some disappointing outcomes. After having picked up just one win in six visits to Loftus Road, Derby are not a great option for a win. QPR, meanwhile, had a solid game against Reading and their home form is usually good. Our preview would choose a win for Steve McClaren’s team.

QPR vs Derby County draw odds: 3.25
Derby County win odds: 2.80
Correct Score odds
Derby have a decent attacking potential with the team managing 14 goals from the first 11 matches. QPR, though, are quite solid at home and have kept two clean sheets in the last three league matches at Loftus Road. QPR may not score a lot of goals but our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Derby County outfit will create plenty of chances in the game but their lack of clinical finishing skills may let them down once again. QPR, meanwhile, have been able to score over 1.5 goals only once in the last four league matches but the team are likely to be spurred on by the supporters due to the presence of a former Chelsea icon in the opposition dugout. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Eberechi Eze plays just behind the centre forwards and he will be looking to add to his three goals picked up so far this season. Even though the attacking midfielder has been unable to score in the last three games, he has the potential to break Derby in a home match. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Eberechi Eze.
