Sunderland v QPR: Hoops won’t get anything out of Black Cats trip

| 23.03.2012

Queens Park Rangers’ season is suddenly looking a lot brighter following their come from behind victory against Liverpool in midweek.

The win has taken them above Bolton in the Premier League table and has seen their odds of being relegated drift slightly to 4/7.

They are still expected to go down though, with tough games against all of the current top five coming up – and things don’t look like improving any more against Sunderland this Saturday…

Match odds

Sunderland are the 10/11 favourites to win this clash and it’s hard to see beyond a win for Martin O’Neill’s men.

Sunderland have won five of their last seven Premier League games at the Stadium of Light – including their last against Liverpool – with their only defeat in that run coming against Arsenal in February.

Meanwhile, QPR have the second worst away record in the league and have not won an away game in any competition in nine attempts – a run that stretches back to November.

If you can see an upset though, then QPR are 3/1 to bag the win and 12/5 to come away from the North East with a point.

Goal Markets

All of QPR’s previous three away games have yielded at least three goals, while Sunderland haven’t failed to score at home in the league since November.

Backing over 2.5 goals at 10/11 looks well worth consideration at 10/11, while the last encounter between these teams earlier in the season finished 3-2 to Sunderland and the same score can be backed at 25/1.

Finally, Jamie Mackie came off the bench to score the winner for QPR against Liverpool in the week and he can be backed at 11/1 to get the first goal in this clash.
