QPR 13/8 to beat Preston in Wednesday’s Championship contest
Market: QPR win
Odds: 13/8 @ 888sport
Looking to continue on what has been a real purple patch of late, QPR will make the trip to a struggling Preston on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, enduring what has been a worrying run of form, Preston have found themselves freefalling down the Championship table. In their 31 second-tier matchups so far this season, they have recorded 12 wins, three draws and 16 defeats, scoring 34 and conceding 42 in return. While the Whites might open the midweek fixtures with just their goal difference stopping them from finding a route into the top-half of the table, it should be noted that Preston do hold the third-worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, hit with a 4-0 defeat away at Cardiff over the weekend, Wednesday’s hosts have suffered back-to-back Championship defeats. More worrying, also losing four of their last five second-tier fixtures, it should also be highlighted that Preston have collected just a single point from their last four straight matchups on home soil.
As for the visitors, enjoying what has been a real purple patch this month, QPR should find the mood in their camp at a real high. In their 29 Championship contests so far this season, they have recorded 10 wins, nine draws and 10 defeats, scoring 30 and conceding 34 in return. While the Hoops might open the midweek fixtures sat with just their goal difference keeping them ahead of Wednesday’s hosts in the standings, it should be noted that that victory in midweek could see QPR break into the top-12. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 2-1 victory against promotion chasers Bournemouth, the Londoners have won each of their last four straight Championship appearances. Given the huge recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing another away victory for QPR in midweek.
