Brentford are expected to secure a seventh straight home win when entertaining QPR in Saturday’s televised Championship match.
The Hoops have lost all of their league games against the current top six in the table this season, including a 3-1 home defeat in the reverse fixture.
Let’s take 29/20 for the Bees to oblige by more than one clear goal for our opening Brentford vs QPR prediction.
A Look At Brentford’s Betting Odds
Brentford are third in the Championship after winning 4-0 at Bristol City on New Year’s Day and edged out Stoke in the FA Cup on Saturday.
The Bees named just one regular first-team player against the Potters, but Emiliano Marcondes’ first-half set-piece saw a youthful outfit through.
Thomas Frank said: “That was absolutely fantastic. The young players were led brilliantly by the older heads.
“My wish for this game was totally completed, because I wanted a win, important minutes for a lot of players and to show that we have a clear identity in the club, so we could rest 10 players.”
Frank has now fully restored the feelgood factor at Griffin Park following Dean Smith’s departure to Aston Villa.
Ollie Watkins trails only Aleksandar Mitrovic in the Championship Golden Boot race with 17 league strikes.
Nine of those have been the final goal in games, so the 24-year-old forward to score last is worth adding to our Brentford vs QPR betting tips.
A Look At Queens Park Rangers’ Betting Odds
QPR will travel across west London in fine spirits after following up a 6-1 league thrashing of Cardiff by crushing Swansea 5-1 in the FA Cup.
“I thought we played very well against a very good footballing team,” beamed manager Mark Warburton.
“They all did very well and, most importantly, they responded to the Cardiff performance with a really solid display.”
However, inconsistent Rangers had picked up just one point from four previous Championship matches and only the bottom two in the table have conceded more goals than them.
Nahki Wells, Eberechi Eze and Jordan Hugill are all in decent form up front, so the Hoops may have their moments.
But we still prefer 6/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game from the Brentford vs QPR odds, while 23/2 for a repeat of October’s 3-1 scoreline at Loftus Road has value appeal.
BRENTFORD 1-0 – Emiliano Marcondes
