Bitesize Prediction: QPR vs Sheffield United – 29/04/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

In a contest that could turn out to be a low-scoring affair on Friday night, Sheffield United will make the trip to west London when they meet QPR.

Starting with the hosts, while QPR might have opened 2022 really battling it out in the top-two chase, Mark Warburton’s men have continued on a hugely worrying run of form. Despite picking up a 1-0 victory against an already relegated Derby earlier in the month, the one-time Rangers boss saw his side make an immediate return to losing ways last time out. Eventually getting hit with a deserved 1-0 defeat away at Stoke, fans around west London have seen their side freefall down the Championship table. On a run of form that is highlighted by a shock drumming at home against Peterborough, QPR have managed to win just one of their previous eight outings, a run that stems all the way back to March 13th. Likewise, it should also be noted, Friday’s hosts have seen five of their previous seven Championship contests finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, managing to make a much-needed return to winning ways last weekend, Sheffield United still find themselves sat in pole position to clinch a play-off finish this season. Opening Friday’s contest in west London holding a three-point buffer over the chasing pack, they have continued to shine under returning boss Paul Heckingbottom. Losing just one of their last five Championship contests, fans around Bramall Lane will be calling on their side to find a clinical edge in the final third. Despite playing out a 0-0 stalemate against Bournemouth earlier in the month, United have failed to score more than a single strike in any of their previous six outings on the spin. In a contest that could see chances come at a real premium this weekend, we’re backing under 2.5 goals here.
