QPR vs Coventry – Sky Blues can inflict second home defeat

| 23.01.2011

Sunday’s lunchtime Championship kick-off pits league leaders Queens Park Rangers against Coventry City in what is sure to be a competitive betting event.

Neil Warnock’s side have been reigned in at the top of the Championship and it’s all to play for as the league’s best teams chase promotion to the Premier League.

Match Odds

It’s now five games since QPR last beat Coventry at Loftus Road, and while this year’s QPR side is a lot stronger than the previous sides, Coventry, at 5/1 to beat QPR offer all the value.

Rangers (4/7 to beat Coventry) managed a 2-0 victory at the Ricoh Arena when the two sides met in December, but all of QPR’s three previous wins against Coventry have come away from home and history suggests that the Sky Blues can prosper despite their poor form.

Total Goals

If Coventry are to win, they will have work to do containing QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt who has eight goals in his last seven games and is 9/2 to get the first goal.

Only two of the last ten games between the two have produced over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals is available at 5/6, while a 1-0 Coventry win is priced at a massive 10/1.

Eight sides have managed to shut out QPR this season and a Coventry clean sheet is a tempting 10/3, while Coventry to win to nil is priced at an even more tempting 6/1.

QPR have been struggling as of late with no win in four games, and while Coventry have managed just one win in eight, they enjoy visiting Loftus Road and can come away with all three points.

A £25 stake on Coventry beating QPR would return £150. New customers can sign up here for a free football bet worth £25.
