QPR vs Reading: Our top betting tips

QPR recorded a massive win in the week as they beat league leaders Sheffield United. Can they follow it up against third placed Reading? Find out with our QPR vs Reading match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

QPR to win

We begin our tips in the match result market and we are backing QPR to win the match – although it's worth noting we think it will be a tight affair. Both sides are in a really good place right now. Not only are they third and fourth respectively in the league but recent form is good too. Reading have won two and drawn one of their last three with the draw coming against Norwich on Tuesday evening in a second vs third match up. QPR meanwhile are on a four game unbeaten run with three wins and a draw chalked up across those four matches; most notable is their own Tuesday night showing that saw them beat table topping Sheffield United. With that recent form just a smidge better than Readings, home advantage and having won the last head to head meeting, we think there is enough justification to back a QPR win.

Do not bank on goals

Our next tip for this match is that it will be a low scoring game. QPR have seen three of their last five home matches end under the 2.5 goal mark whilst Reading have seen three of their past five away games end in that manner too. Combine that with the head to head record, which shows – once again – three of the last five meetings between the sides going south of the all important 2.5 cut off, and a low scoring prediction feels like the wisest choice. That thought is really driven home when looking at the odds too with the prices offering real value.

Third vs Fourth promises to be an intriguing encounter

Let's cut to the chase, this game sees two promotion contenders do battle after both gave good accounts of their credentials in the week as they took points off the current top two in Norwich and Sheffield United. Now as they look to do battle against one another the question on everybody's lips is ‘are either automatic promotion contenders'. This match might tell us more on that front.

QPR arrive into this match in a very good place both on and off the pitch. As for who will come into the XI, there is only one player definitely ruled out and that's Taylor Richards.

QPR Predicted lineup – Dieng, Paal, Laird, Balogun, Dunne, Dozzell, Amos, Field, Chair, Willock, Roberts

Reading impressed in their draw against Norwich on Tuesday evening and will look to do so again here. It's been a remarkable start really – especially when you consider the vast number of injuries they have. The likes of Naby Sarr, Shane Long and Liam Moore remain sidelined.

Reading Predicted lineup – Lumley, Holmes, McIntyre, Hutchinson, Hoilett, Hendrick, Loum, Fornah, Guinness-Walker, Ince, Carroll
