Leeds to take advantage of the uncertainty that surrounds QPR

| 06.05.2011

As Queens Park Rangers continue their battle with the Football Association, Leeds United have been quietly preparing for a game that could throw them into the play-off mix.

Leeds are unlikely to snatch the final play-off position from Nottingham Forest with a six-goal swing needed, but the three points would put Leeds within 16 points of QPR as the FA contemplate a potential points deduction for the ‘champions’.

Match Odds

Both sides were in the Premier League on the last occasion QPR beat Leeds back in 1995 and despite topping the table having lost just one game at home all season, the Hoops are an uneasy 11/10 to beat Leeds.

The two sides have met eight times since and Leeds have chalked up five wins and three draws, including a 2-0 win at home earlier this season and they are 23/10 to win with QPR’s future shrouded in doubt.

QPR’s home record is impressive and they are a big price on the back of that, and while Neil Warnock and his side brace for the worst, they can go out with a bang in front of their home crowd.

Total Goals

Late goals are likely to decide the outcome of this game with the last three meetings between the two producing four goals scored in the 80th minute or later, and you can back QPR to come from behind and win at 9/1.

Only one of the last six ties between the two has produced over 2.5 goals but Leeds are the Championships top scorers and worst defenders outside the bottom four.

We could be in for a classic at Loftus Road for the final game of the season and it’s 5/6 that there are over 2.5 goals while a 3-2 QPR win is available at 25/1.

A £10 stake on QPR beating Leeds 3-2 would return £260. Sign up here for a free bet worth up to £30.
