Middlesbrough vs QPR: Top picks

Unbiased tips

Anything but a home win

This game is on the tougher side to call but seeing the betting odds for the draw or QPR win double chance made our prediction easy. Middlesbrough drew with Fulham on opening day, which was a good result but they were far from the better team whilst they hardly battered Bristol City; the Robins are in utterly terrible form of late. QPR meanwhile should have beat Millwall in game week one and outclassed Hull at the weekend 3-0. On top of that, they've not lost a game against Middlesbrough in four meetings.

There will be a fair few goals

If the double chance hedges your bets in respect of the match result, there is no such safety net needed for the total goals markets; at least not according to the stats. The last head to head meeting – in April – served up three goals; then in more recent form you have Middlesbrough having three of their past five Championship games going over 2.5 goals with an average of 2.8 per match. For QPR, their last five league games have served up 15 goals; that's an average of 3.0 per match with, again, three of those games going over 2.5.

Lyndon Dykes to score

The last of our tips is backing striker Lyndon Dykes to score at some point in the match against Middlesbrough. Last year QPR man Dykes hit 12 league goals before showing what a handful he can be at Euro 2020. Since then, he's scored several goals in pre-season and opened his competitive account for 2021/22 on Saturday. QPR have several attacking threats and that means the Bori back line will find it harder to keep Dykes under a watchful eye.

QPR to avoid defeat at the Riverside

If you were to have a wager now there would be worse bets to place than Middlesbrough and QPR being in the top six mix come May. Both have made impressive starts to the season with Middlesbrough looking very much a Neil Warnock side and QPR threatening to be a good football team. This game will come down to who does it better on the day, can Rob Dickie handle the electric Uche Ikpeazu? Can Grant Hall and Dael Fry deal with the threat of Dykes and the fit again Ilias Chair.
