Bitesize Prediction: QPR vs Peterborough – 20/03/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

Two Championship outfits battling it out at opposite ends of the table, QPR will welcome relegation scrappers Peterborough to west London on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while QPR might have picked up a much-needed 2-1 win away at Luton last weekend, the Hoops came crashing back down to earth a few days ago. Eventually throwing away the lead and getting hit with a 3-1 drumming against Nottingham Forest on the road, Mark Warburton’s side are now in a real battle to maintain their play-off place. Losing three of their last four Championship contests, including a 2-1 defeat at home against Cardiff on March 5th, the former Rangers boss has also seen his side win just a pair of their previous 10 matchups across all formats. Now with just their goal difference keeping them in the top-six, QPR really know that they can not afford any more slip-ups. It’s also worth highlighting, Sunday’s hosts have seen each of their last five fixtures in west London finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, while Peterborough might have managed to snatch a 1-1 draw against leading promotion contenders Bournemouth earlier in the month, it appears that was just a minor boost for the Posh. Sat rock-bottom of the Championship table and still seven points adrift of safety, new boss Grant McCann finds his side in the midst of an extended 11-match winless run, a run that stems back to the start of February. Continuing to show a host of issues on the road and with just a single second-tier win away from London Road throughout the 2021/22 campaign, the former Hull boss could be in for a tough test here. However, it should be noted, with Sunday’s guests seeing all bar two of their away fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome this weekend.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at QPR vs Peterborough 4/11 for Sunday’s Championship matchup @ 888sport
