Queens Park Rangers vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture features two bottom-half sides with nothing to play for but pride.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

QPR followed up their 4-1 defeat of Norwich with a 4-0 thrashing at Hull at their weekend.  The expected goals data suggests that they did deserve to lose though probably not to the extent that they did.

Sheffield Wednesday saw their four-game unbeaten run come to an end but losing 1-0 at home to Fulham is no disgrace.  They were outplayed by the London side but then most teams are currently.

The reverse fixture came in August and it end in a 1-1 draw with Jamie Mackie netting for the Rs and Sam WInnall for the Owls.  It means the Yorkshire outfit are now unbeaten in their last six meetings.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Strong home form makes QPR favourites here but two road wins in a row from Sheffield Wednesday suggests they will not be pushovers either so I would look to other markets to find the value.

Neither side has much to play for which can lead to a freedom and this might lead to an open entertaining contest between two teams who have been involved in games with goals lately.  The over 2.5 looks the value call while over 3.5 also appeals in a speculative small interest.

Queens Park Rangers Preview

It continues to be a hit and miss season for the Rs who two wins, one draw and two defeats from their last five games.  They sit in 15th currently and depending on results could end the season anywhere from 12th to 18th.

At Loftus Road, they have won their last two and four of their last six losing on just one occasion.  Eberechi Eze has found the back of the net in each of his last two in front of his own fans.

Four of the last five and six of the last nine QPR league games have gone over 2.5 goals with four of the last five also going over 3.5.  Around 65% of their league goals have come in the second-half.

 

Queens Park Rangers Team News

Joel Lynch (unknown) and Grant Hall (knee) are doubts while Jamie Mackie (back surgery) and David Wheeler (ankle) are long-term absentees.  Nedum Onuoha will miss the game through suspension.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview

Defeat at Fulham last time out put to an end a three-game winning run and four without defeat.  The Owls are in 16th just below their opponents here and victory here would move them level on points.

Away from Hillsborough, they have won their last two and lost just two of their previous seven.  Atdhe Nuhiu has three in his last two and four in his last five appearances on the road.

Five of the last six and seven of the last eight Sheffield Wednesday league games have seen both teams score.  They have conceded on just three occasions from their previous six meetings with the Rs.

 

Sheffield Wednesday Team News

Ross Wallace (knee) and Kieran Westwood (groin) are doubts.  Steven Fletcher (knee), Gary Hooper, Kieran Lee (both hip), Sean Clare (ankle), Joost van Aken (ankle) and Morgan Fox (ankle) are all long-term absentees.
