Bitesize Prediction: QPR vs West Brom – 06/03/24

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/9 @ 1xBet

Two sides who find themselves scrapping it out at opposite ends of the Championship table, QPR will welcome West Brom to Loftus Road on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while QPR might have opened the New Year in the midst of another public Championship struggle, the Hoops are enjoying what has been a stunning turn in fortunes. Last seen over the weekend putting in another eye-catching performance as they secured a remarkable 2-1 victory away at runaway leaders Leicester, Marti Cifuentes’s men have come skyrocketing out of the relegation zone and the mood around west London is certainly at a season-high. Enjoying what has been their brightest run in some time and desperate to make another statement here, QPR have won all of their previous three Championship appearances by an aggregate score of 5-2. With their recent flurry underlined by a 2-1 win against Rotherham on February 24th, Wednesday’s hosts have also suffered just a single loss from any of their previous eight outings. Riding what could be a season-deciding wave of momentum, QPR are also unbeaten in all of their last four showdowns at Loftus Road. It should also be highlighted, the Hoops have seen all of their previous seven home fixtures finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, while West Brom might have eventually fallen short in their bid to punch a play-off ticket last season, the Baggies are enjoying a real top-six charge this time around. Opening Wednesday’s showdown holding a four-point buffer from dropping out of the play-off places, Carlos Corberan’s men have lost just one of their previous seven Championship appearances. Putting in what could prove to be a crucial performance over the weekend as they secured a 2-1 victory at home against Coventry, the one-time Huddersfield boss should find the mood in his camp at a real high. With their recent flurry underlined by a 3-0 romp away at Plymouth on February 20th, Wednesday’s guests have found a real clinical edge in the final third. Notching at least a pair of strikes in five of their last seven outings, West Brom will also be excited by their most recent meeting against QPR. Claiming a 2-0 win when the two sides met for their reverse Championship battle on October 24th, Corberan will be demanding a repeat display here.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at QPR vs West Brom 4/9 for Wednesday’s Championship matchup @ 1xBet
