What Trueform says for QPR vs Aston Villa

QPR have put together a good run of form, picking up three wins and a draw with Derby from their last four Championship matches to see them climb to 11th place.

New Aston Villa manager Dean Smith tasted defeat for the first time after seeing his side suffer a 2-1 defeat to Norwich at Carrow Road.

The R’s have lost just one of their last five at Loftus Road while Villa have failed to win on the road since the opening day but our first QPR vs Aston Villa prediction is for a draw at 11/5.

A Look At Queens Park Rangers’ Betting Odds

Nahki Wells scored his first goal for QPR as their resurgence continued with a 3-0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

Tomer Hemed and Luke Freeman had put the home side in the driving seat before Wells sealed the win with seven minutes remaining.

Boss Steve McClaren was full of praise for Wells, who has been excellent since arriving on loan from Burnley despite his frustrations in front of goal.

McClaren said: “The spirit of the squad – the players are more delighted for Nahki than anybody. That was perfect for us, for him to do that. He’s been frustrated but he’s never stopped working.

“He’s been great for the team and if you keep working and keep making runs you will score goals.”

With four of their eight home goals coming in the final 15 minutes of the first half, we are adding 13/4 for them to score during that period again to our picks from the QPR vs Aston Villa odds.

A Look At Aston Villa’s Betting Odds

After claiming victory in his first game in charge at home to Swansea on Saturday, Smith felt Villa were unlucky to lose at Carrow Road.

James Chester headed Villa into a 19th-minute lead before Tammy Abraham, who went off injured early in the second half, struck a post.

But Jordan Rhodes netted a brace after the break to earn Norwich all three points and extend Villa’s winless away run in the league to six games.

Smith said: “On the whole I thought we played OK and certainly didn’t deserve to lose. Norwich can feel fortunate they won because it was a very even game.

“It’s frustrating but the game is done with now and we have got to pick ourselves up for another televised game against QPR on Friday night.”

Given their woes on the road, Villa will have to settle for a share of the spoils with a 1-1 draw at 23/4 rounding off our QPR vs Aston Villa betting tips.
