Coventry vs QPR: Our top betting tips
QPR might sit in the top six but their form is a real concern. Can they settle some nerves here with a good away win? Find out with our Coventry vs QPR match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Coventry to win
We begin our tips for this match by backing Coventry to win. They've really impressed after their sluggish start to the campaign and with three wins on the bounce they are amongst the form sides in the division right now. The same cannot be said for QPR. They have flirted with the top of the table this season but results have nosedived of late and in a five game form table they sit second from bottom with just a measly four points from five matches. When you consider the vastly contrasted form and home advantage sitting with Coventry, it's hard to foresee a situation where QPR come and romp to a win.
A low scorer
Our next prediction for this match comes from the total goals market and we are opting for an under 2.5 goals bet. Coventry have seen each of their last three matches end south of that 2.5 cut off with a game average of just 2.1 across the season to date. QPR meanwhile have seen three of their last four matches go under the 2.5 mark and whilst their season long average sits higher than Coventry's at 2.4 per game, it is still under 2.5. On top of that, three of the last five meetings between these two sides where Coventry have been the home side have ended under 2.5 goals.
Here are the key stats & form guide for Coventry vs QPR
Could both sides push for playoffs?
There is a real feel good vibe around Coventry right now and Viktor Gyokeres, who scored a special solo goal in the week, is a player that embodies that. With players such as Martyn Waghorn and Matt Godden still to return from injury they've got good options as the season deepens; for now though, they have to go without that duo.
Coventry Predicted lineup – Wilson, Rose, McFazdean, Panzo, Eccles, Hamer, Sheaf, Bidwell, O'Hare, Palmer, Gyokeres
Unlike their hosts, there is very little positivity around the QPR squad and fans right now after losing several games of late. They do still sit in sixth but questions are on the rise. It's not all bad news though; Tyler Roberts is the only injury doubt.
QPR Predicted lineup – Dieng, Paal, Laird, Balogun, Clarke-Salter, Iroegbunam, Chair, Field, Adomah, Willock, Dykes
