Queens Park Rangers v West Brom: Tips, Predictions and Odds

Queens Park Rangers have given themselves a real fighting chance of staying up after three wins on the bounce in the congested Championship relegation battle.

The R's host West Brom on Wednesday night, with the Baggies riding high with four wins from their last seven games cementing their spot in the playoff spots.

Queens Park Rangers v West Brom betting tips and predictions

Over 2.5 goals - 27/20

Queens Park Rangers have looked destined for the drop for much of the Championship season but a marked improvement in their results under new manager Marti Cifuentes has seen them rise up the table.

The R's have won three in a row, with their latest victory a shock 2-1 success over table toppers Leicester.

Cifuentes' men seem to have discovered their goalscoring touch, which had deserted them in the first half of the season and have now netted in 10 of their last 11 matches in all competitions.

The hosts can more than play their part in a high-scoring clash between these two teams, with four of their last six games going over 2.5 goals.

West Brom have also been involved in some high-scoring affairs despite their reputation as a solid defensive outfit.

The Baggies have been in strong form all season and that has seen them become key protagonists in the playoff race, winning 17 of their 35 league matches.

While the battle for the automatic promotion places looks to be between Leicester, Ipswich, Leeds and Southampton, the battle for the final two top six spots looks set to be one that will rage until the end of the season.

Carlos Corberan has done a remarkable job in the circumstances and the completed takeover of the club has only increased the positivity around the Hawthorns.

However, there are plenty of teams who could still have a say in the playoff race so there will be no room for complacency for this West Brom team.

They could have landed plenty of easier fixtures than a visit to the resurgent QPR, who have been in impressive form.

Expect both teams to play their part in what should be an entertaining affair.

West Brom have scored at least twice in four of their last six outings and with the R's finding the net with regularity recently, over 2.5 goals may be overpriced.

Michael Johnston to score at any time - 13/2

West Brom have a number of absentees in attacking areas, with Daryl Dike, Brandon Thomas-Asante and Josh Maja missing through injury.

Those issues have led to some players who had previously had smaller roles being called upon more heavily.

Michael Johnston arrived on loan from Celtic in January but the wide forward has netted three times in four starts, including a barnstormer against Coventry last time out.

The Ireland international seems to suit Corberan's style of play and can continue to flourish under his new manager.

Johnston found his opportunities limited when playing for the Bhoys but West Brom's current injury crisis can provide the chances for players like the 24-year-old to thrive and he looks a big price to get on the scoresheet once more.

Darnell Furlong to be shown a card - 10/3

Darnell Furlong has been the most carded West Brom player this season and could pick up another in this clash.

The right-back has been booked nine times this term and also leads his team in fouls with 35.

The right-back may also face a tough task up against some tricky opponents and looks a big price to pick up his 10th caution of the season.
