Middlesbrough vs QPR: Top free betting tips
Middlesbrough will be desperate to stretch their winning form of the EFL Cup fixture against Bolton to the next EFL Championship game against Queens Park Rangers. Both teams will enter Riverside Stadium on Saturday, 2 September. The Hoops enter this game after three consecutive defeats in the league and EFL Cup.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
All of the previous five H2Hs between these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Middlesbrough have found the back of the net eight times in the last five fixtures in EFL Cup and Championship. But their defence has also allowed 11 goals to be scored in the same duration. On the other hand, Queens Park Rangers have scored six goals in their last five league outings away from Loftus Road Stadium. Given these statistics, we can predict the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Middlesbrough has found the back of the net in four of the recent five games while conceding goals in all of them. QPR have also netted the ball in four of their last five road fixtures in the EFL Championship. The Super Hoops have also allowed goals at the back in four games during that course. Adding more to this, all of the last five H2Hs of these two sides have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Therefore, we predict the teams to contribute to a BTTS outcome in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Middlesbrough
Despite lacking a winning run, Middlesbrough have rattled the net more than once in three of the recent five games. The Boro also featured the same record in the last five home H2Hs against the Super Hoops. On the other hand, QPR have managed to score at least twice in just one of the recent five matches. Defensively, the Hoops have conceded seven goals in three away league outings this season. Considering these facts, we expect a 2-1 lead for Middlesbrough to find their first victory of the season.
