Tip Reasoning

  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in the last nine Blackburn Rovers league games.
  • Fewer than three goals have been scored in five of the last eight QPR fixtures.
  • Blackburn have not scored a goal in their last five matches.

QPR can avoid defeat in low-scoring affair

QPR can play a part in knocking Blackburn Rovers, who need to rediscover their scoring touch quickly to stay on track for the playoffs, out of the Championship’s top six on Saturday. Rovers’ form – featuring just one league win in their last seven – is not that of a promotion contender and it seems inevitable they will be overtaken by the likes of Sheffield United and Middlesbrough soon.

Defensively, they are still an elite force in the division with only six other clubs having conceded fewer goals this term. But, having been the Championship’s second-highest scorers a few weeks ago, Tony Mowbray’s men are now joint-fourth in the goalscoring stakes – behind Saturday’s visitors from west London.

QPR’s midweek victory over Blackpool was a welcome boost for another team enduring a rotten spell of results. Mark Warburton’s men had taken just two league points from the previous 12 on offer prior to Wednesday night when things changed thanks to Luke Amos’ 89th-minute winner.

Stats align to under 2.5 goals bet

Momentum is massive in the Championship when the games come thick and fast, which is why we are favouring the R’s – who look set to have Lyndon Dykes available for selection again – to avoid defeat in Lancashire.

However, the under 2.5 goals bet is a better price than QPR’s double chance odds and it’s a play that matches up with the stats really well. Fewer than three goals have been scored in the last nine Blackburn Rovers league games, including their last three at Ewood Park. Fewer than three goals have been scored in five of the last eight QPR fixtures as well.

Boasting five home clean sheets in their last seven, Blackburn will be a tough nut for QPR to crack here. The R’s had scored in 21 straight away league games prior to this month’s 2-0 loss at Barnsley – before they suffered another blank at Millwall three days later, so we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see this one finish 0-0.
