QPR vs Sunderland: Top free betting tips
Fresh from ending their losing streak against Middlesbrough, Queens Park Rangers line up for the next game against Sunderland. Both teams will be entering at Loftus Road Stadium on Saturday, 16 September. The Black Cats come into this game after defeating Southampton at Stadium of Lights in the second division.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals
Three of the previous five H2H meetings between these two sides have finished with Under 2.5 Goals. Queens Park Rangers have found the back of the net four times in the previous five fixtures. But the Hoops have failed to score a single goal in the last three matches at Loftus Road Stadium. On the other hand, Sunderland has also rattled the net just six times in the previous five road fixtures in the EFL Championship. Therefore, a total of Under 2.5 Goals will be our first pick for this game.
Both teams to score prediction: No
Queens Park Rangers have failed to find the back of the net in four of the recent five matches at Loftus Road Stadium. The Hoops’ defence has also been terrible as they conceded goals in all games during the aforementioned period. On the other hand, Sunderland kept two consecutive clean sheets before this game, scoring in both of them. The Black Cats also restricted QPR from scoring in the last two H2Hs at Loftus Road Stadium. Hence, we predict only Sunderland to be strong enough to rattle the net in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Sunderland
Sunderland notched seven goals in the last three league outings, scoring more than once in two of them. The Black Cats also scored multiple goals in each of the previous two H2Hs against Queens Park Rangers. On the other hand, the Super Hoops have also conceded multiple goals in three of the previous five league outings at Loftus Road Stadium. Based on these numbers, we predict a 0-2 margin for Sunderland to take away three points in this encounter.
