Home form and home form alone is what is keeping QPR’s hopes of Premier League survival alive and when they face West Brom, another relegation rival, at Loftus Road next three points are a prerequisite.
Given their recent imperiousness at base camp, they can be relied upon to do the business, making their 29/20 for victory the bet of the weekend, if not the entire season.
The travelling Baggies look impossibly short at 2/1, while it’s 23/10 about the draw, but both offerings can be safely disregarded in favour of a big swing on the hosts.

Here’s why it’s a bet you simply have to back:
The R’s are currently unbeaten in four on the homestead.
Manchester City are the only visitor in four to have dodged defeat at the home of the Super Hoops.
Aston Villa, Leicester and Burnley, all sides of similar stature to West Brom, have been seen off in this spell.
While their only home loss since day one – a 3-2 reverse against Liverpool – can be mitigated by misfortune, after they scored two own goals to hand the Reds the laurels.
West Brom’s lack of road goals means they’re primed for defeat here.
Their away results haven’t been at all bad, but the Baggies haven’t exactly been rustling nets en masse.
In their eight sojourns across all competitions they’re yet to record a multi-goal haul and drew blanks on the two trips that preceded this one.
Meanwhile, QPR have scored at least two in each of their last six at base camp and should have the firepower to see their guests off home empty handed.
Charlie Austin is returning from suspension.
No Premier League striker born outside of South America has amassed more goals than the former Burnley frontman’s eight this term.
He has bagged five in his last four Loftus Road outings and only once this season has one of his home strikes not accompanied a win.
