Tip Reasoning

The battle for the play-offs is really heating up and Sheffield Wednesday have come under intense pressure from 7th place Fulham in recent weeks. In fairness to the Owls they’ve kept their cool with 3 straight wins but they aren’t scoring as many goals as they might like and this promises to be a low-scoring game.

6 of Wednesday’s last 7 matches have produced under 2.5 goals. They made their fans sweat on Saturday before Fernando Forestieri popped up with the only goal of their home game with Cardiff in the 84th minute. This could be a similar kind of game, with QPR keen to stop the rot after a 4 game losing streak and unlikely to try anything too adventurous.

Wednesday too haven’t been that bold when they’ve played away this season, generally preferring to try and keep things tight and nick games. They’ve only scored 1 goal per game on their travels this term on average which isn’t great but have been defending well too, conceding just 1.05  away from home. That has contributed to a huge 71% of their away league games featuring under 2.5 goals.

QPR haven’t been prolific in front of goal of late either. If you discount their home game with a very poor Rotherham side, they’ve only scored twice in five matches. Aside from the game with the Millers, they’ve had a pretty tough run of fixtures but having reached 50 points prior to that, chances are they already have enough to beat the drop. Even so, Ian Holloway would probably gladly take a point from this game to give themselves a little more breathing space and end this losing run, so we are unlikely to see anything too open from them.

Although their home games have tended to produce goals this season, only 1 of their last 19 at Loftus Road has seen more than 3 goals scored and that was the game against the Millers. This could be quite cagey and backing Under 2.5 Goals at 9/10 looks like it could offer value.
