QPR v Aston Villa tips: Can Rangers maintain recent momentum?

| 26.10.2018

We could be in for a Friday night treat as Queens Park Rangers host Aston Villa.

QPR are within touching distance of the play-off spots after three wins from four. It’s still early days for Villa under Dean Smith, but they’ve not won on the road since August.

Can the home side continue to climb upwards? We’ve got all the odds right here…

Match Odds

QPR will be full of confidence and are 8/5 favourites here.

Villa have won on their last two visits to Loftus Road though. They haven’t lost any of their last seven away to Rangers either. We’ve got them at 17/10 here.

The draw is available for 11/5.

The Villans haven’t been picking up points on the road lately , but they’ve netted in their last six away games. Both Teams to Score is a 4/5 shot.

Talking Tactics

There’s no need to mess with a winning formula. Steve McClaren could name the same side for the third game running.

Villa will be boosted by the return of John McGinn. They’ll hope Tammy Abraham can shake off an injury picked up against Norwich City in midweek too.

One of the reasons Villa turned to Smith after sacking Steve Bruce was to improve their football. They’ll look to get the ball down and play. But QPR showed they don’t need to control possession to win in Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

Goalscorer Odds

Abraham leads the scoring markets at 5/1 to score first and 9/5 anytime. If Abraham isn’t ready to start, Scott Hogan could get the nod up front for the visitors. We go 12/5 that he nets.

Tomer Hemed is 19/10 to score for the third game running for McClaren’s side. Nahki Wells is also 19/10 to get a goal.
