QPR extended their recent spell of good form to pick up a 2-0 win over Ipswich Town at the Portman Road. This was the second consecutive away victory for Steve McClaren’s men.
Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-1 at home against Middlesbrough as the club’s four-game unbeaten streak came to an acrimonious end. This was the fourth defeat of the campaign for Wednesday.

Sheffield Wednesday are given a price of 4.00 to win the game. However, their recent form does not give a great deal of confidence coming into the game. QPR have been doing very well in recent weeks and the team has even picked up back-to-back away games – usually their Achilles heel. Surprisingly, QPR are winless in the last two matches at Loftus Road, which was seen as the defining factor towards ensuring their survival. Now, QPR are looking up towards a potential top-10 place due to the recent form. Wednesday may be excellent on the counter, but I would back a win for QPR.

QPR vs Sheffield Wednesday draw odds: 3.50
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
QPR have been able to keep two clean sheets in the last five games. Surprisingly, both clean sheets have been on the road. Wednesday do have enough attacking threat going forward with the likes of Steven Fletcher and Lucas Joao in good form. However, they are still not a match for QPR’s offensive players, who have been creating plenty of chances. Our correct score prediction would opt for a QPR 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last four away games for Sheffield Wednesday have a completed with a score of 2-1 – three of those games going in favour of Wednesday. However, Wednesday did suffer a big defeat when they lost ground to Loftus Road and this may give enough psychological boost for the hosts ahead of the game. Our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The form of Eberechi Eze has been carrying QPR in recent weeks. Even though the 20-year-old has been unable to score in the last five games, the number of chances that he has had in front of goal have been numerous. Eze had several one-on-one opportunities against Ipswich but the Nigerian is expected to take his chances in front of Loftus Road’s crowd. Our first goalscorer prediction would take Eberechi Eze.
