QPR have a six-point advantage over the bottom three with the potential to increase this gap even further, as the London team are playing at home in three out of the next four matches. Swansea are set to finish mid-table with little ways of going down as they have been mathematically ensured of safety. Follow all our predictions, free bets, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
QPR were able to hold Millwall to a goalless draw in a fierce London derby at the Den. It was a positive result for QPR as it meant the team was able to enjoy a first clean sheet since Steve McClaren left the club.
Swansea were able to enjoy a third successive league victory to put an end to their relegation fears. The 3-1 victory over Stoke City was achieved in relative comfort thanks to the opposition being reduced to 9 men in the second half.
QPR lost 3-0 against Swansea in the reverse fixture at the Liberty Stadium. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw when they last met each other at Loftus Road back in 2015. Back then, both teams were in the Premier League. Our betting tips and predictions for this match would opt for a QPR win.

QPR have not been able to get over the finishing line and the recent match against Millwall was a perfect example of the same. The club are now winless in seven league encounters. Swansea may have picked up three successive victories in the league, but all wins have been at the Liberty Stadium. The Welsh outfit have not been on the winning side in any of the last seven trips. The extended winless sequence for the visitors on the road coupled with QPR’s need for three points make our preview go with a home win.

QPR vs Swansea draw odds: 3.50
Swansea win odds: 2.40
Correct Score odds
QPR have been unable to score in the last two matches as the club has just been unable to put away the chances that come their way. Even against Millwall, QPR ended up having the most shots at goal without scoring a goal. Swansea have been unable to get more than 1.5 goals in any of the last six trips. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for QPR.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in many of the recent matches involving QPR and it is largely to do with a poor defence. Swansea are not renowned for getting goals in three matches and it is fair to not expect an improvement in this regard especially after having ensured safety for another campaign in the Championship. Our total goals prediction for the game would go with over 2.5 goals, as both teams should be able to score at least a goal with QPR taking the victory.

First Goalscorer odds
Matt Smith had a positive outing against Millwall with the striker having multiple shots at goal. Even though he has not scored since the middle of February, the 29-year-old is in a good position to end his goal drought, which stretches to 6 matches across all competitions. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Matt Smith.
