Bristol City vs QPR – Result may not be as obvious as it seems
All avenues point to an away win as QPR head to Bristol City in the televised Friday night Championship game, but it is no banker that the leaders will take the three points.
QPR have kept ten clean sheets in the Championship this season and conceded just three goals, which has helped them lead the way by two points from Cardiff.
They are 1/1 to beat Bristol City and continue to set the pace, but there have been signs of late that the goals are starting to dry up.
Neil Warnock’s team have drawn three of their last four matches and have failed to win at Ashton Gate since 2002.
Bristol City may have already lost four of their home games, but will have taken some confidence from their midweek victory over Reading at home.
QPR are just one of two teams to be still unbeaten in England, but it is 11/4 that this comes to an end with a defeat at Bristol City.
With QPR having the league’s tightest defence, there is a strong case that if Bristol City are to make it back-to-back victories then it is likely to be 1-0.
This was not only the result in their win over Reading, but also in the corresponding fixture at Ashton Gate last season.
Bristol City are 9/1 to beat QPR 1-0 and significantly improve their chances of moving off the foot of the Championship table.
QPR have already racked up four 3-0 Championship successes this season and this could be a better bet for those looking for value at 14/1.
After a flying start to the season, Jamie Mackie has not scored in five games for QPR, but is 5/1 to open the scoring against Bristol City. See the full Bristol City vs QPR match betting odds market.
