West Brom travel to west London to take on QPR on Saturday in a game where home status does not necessarily afford an advantage.
A 1-0 home win over Chelsea has gone some way to masking the fact that QPR have not got off to the best of starts at their own ground this season.
West Brom are just as effective away as they are at home, with seven points collected both at the Hawthorns and on their travels.
Loftus Road was something of a fortress last year: QPR had the second-best home record in their Championship-winning season, losing just twice in their own back yard, but they have flattered to deceive in front of their own fans in the Premier League.
The win over their local rivals was the undoubted highlight, although given Chelsea were down to nine men for much of the match it was somewhat fortuitous.
Aside from that, QPR fans have had precious little to shout about at home, with their remaining five matches ending in three draws (to Newcastle, Aston Villa and Blackburn) and two defeats (to Bolton and Manchester City).
Meanwhile, West Brom are just as effective away as they are at home, with seven points collected both at the Hawthorns and on their travels.
This casts doubt on the wisdom of backing favourites QPR to pick up all three points at odds of 5/4 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
With a West Brom win at 43/20, the best bet could be on a draw at 11/5, with a successful £25 free bet on this outcome set to return £80.
And with four of the last five games at Loftus Road featuring fewer than three goals, it could be worth having a punt on a 1-1 correct scoreline at odds of 5/1.

One final bet to consider would be on West Brom scoring more goals in the first half than they do in the second at odds of 5/2.
This bet offers excellent value given the Baggies are first half specialists, scoring 75 per cent of their goals before the interval.
