EFL: Steve Freeth's Birmingham v QPR Bet Builder

Birmingham City play host to high-flying QPR on Friday night, and I have three selections for a boosted Bet Builder.

Manager of the moment Mick Beale (whose name I can’t say without thinking of a late 90s American drama) continues to get all the accolades, but there’s another former assistant working wonders in the Championship.

Step forward John Eustace, a coach who left QPR to take over a job far from straightforward, with a relegation battle looking very much on the cards. 

Though I liked the appointment of Eustace, I thought it’d be a long season at St Andrew’s, and while there are 10 points between the two clubs at present, I’d say that the Solihull-born gaffer has done a superior job to the former Aston Villa assistant with the cards he’s been dealt.

While QPR and Beale are getting all the plaudits right now, it’s Blues who will start the game as favourites in this one.

Birmingham vs QPR odds

I saw Scott Hogan score a hat-trick at the Hawthorns back in September and he’s been back amongst the goals in the last two games, but while he’s only one off the division’s top scorers, I can never totally trust him in front of goal, so I’ll play safe by going for him to have at least one shot on target.

QPR are decent on the road having secured four wins away from Shepherd’s Bush and with the impending return of the excellent Chris Willock, plus the fantastic Ilias Chair in their ranks, I can see Rangers scoring at least once in the second city.

In the hope that Blues can click in front of goal having taken 16 shots at Blackburn, I’m going for Both Teams to Score as my second selection.

Blues have racked up 30 corners in their last four games and with the Super Hoops gaining nine in their last away game, I’m finishing off this Bet Builder with Over 10 Corners.

Scott Hogan Over 0.5 Shots on Target - 4/7

Both Teams to Score - 5/6
