Southampton vs QPR: top free betting tips

After consecutive defeats at home, Queens Park Rangers travel to Southampton for the fourth round of the EFL Championship on Saturday, 26 August. The Saints make an appearance at Saint Mary’s Stadium after a victory over newly promoted Plymouth Argyle.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Queens Park Rangers have found the back of the net seven times in the previous five Championship fixtures away from Loftus Road Stadium. But Southampton have been consistent in front of the target and scored nine goals in the last four matches. However, the Saints have also allowed six goals in the opening three games in EFL Championship. Furthermore, three of the recent four H2Hs of these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Hence, we can predict these two teams to feature a total of at least three goals in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Southampton were on the scoring side in each of the previous four matches in the Championship and EFL Cup. But the Saints have not been favourable at the back and failed to keep a single clean sheet in that duration. On the other hand, QPR has found the back of the net in four of the recent five road fixtures in the league while keeping just one clean sheet. Adding more, three of the previous four H2Hs of these two sides have finished with BTTS outcomes. Given the current state of affairs, we can predict these teams to contribute to another BTTS result on coming Saturday.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Southampton

Southampton has rattled the net twice or more in all of the three opening games in the EFL Championship. The Saints have also conceded just one goal in two games during that duration. On the other hand, QPR scored more than once in only one of the recent four matches. The Hoops have also scored just one goal in two of the last four H2Hs against Southampton, leaking multiple goals in two matches. Given these statistics, we predict a 2-1 lead for the Saints before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
