Bitesize Prediction: Luton vs QPR – 13/03/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Luton win

Odds: 6/5 @ 888sport

In what could be an enjoyable meeting from the Championship on Sunday lunchtime, play-off hopefuls Luton will welcome QPR to Kenilworth Road.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make an immediate return to winning ways earlier in the week with a 1-0 win away at Coventry, the mood around Kenilworth Road should be at a red-hot high. While the Hatters might have seen their FA Cup run come to an abrupt end against Premier League giants Chelsea on March 2nd, Nathan Jones’ men have gained a host of plaudits from across the Championship this season. Shocking many and with their sights set on clinching a famous play-off spot this year, the one-time Stoke boss has also seen his side continue to shine in home soil. Including a 2-0 victory against West Brom last month, Luton are unbeaten in each of their previous seven Championship matchups in Bedfordshire, a run that stems all the way back to November 27th.

As for the visitors, while QPR might also find themselves battling it out in the play-off hunt, they’re enduring what has been a hugely worrying run of form. Tumbling away from the top-two and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat outside the top-six, Mark Warburton’s men were also last seen getting hit with a shock 2-1 defeat at home against Cardiff. Enduring what has been their worst run of the season so far, the former Rangers boss has seen his side remarkably win just one of their last eight outings, a run that stems back to the end of January. Suffering losses against the likes of Peterborough and Barnsley on their nightmare run, it should also be noted that QPR have lost each of their last four straight contests outside of west London. Drawing a blank in each of those four away day defeats, we’re backing a home victory here.

Bet: Luton 6/5 to beat QPR in Sunday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
