West Brom vs QPR Soccer Betting Prediction
Are the baggies still wasting everything?
The decision about second place and the last direct ticket for the Premier League is only made on the last match day. The home side currently occupy the coveted rank, but it can only be secured with a win. Otherwise, the two city rivals Brentford or Fulham may still pass.
The Baggies have not had a three in three rounds, which is why they have to write the endgame themselves with a lot of pressure.
With QPR, however, a beatable opponent is now arriving. The Rangers no longer have any season goals and will occupy a place in midfield at the end of the season.
For the match in the Hawthorns between West Brom and QPR, the tip is aimed at a maximum of two goals by the home side.
West Brom – Statistics & current form
Last Saturday in Birmingham, everyone took a deep breath. Thanks to the surprising defeat of the previous high-flyers from Brentford, the second place was defended at Huddersfield the day before despite their own defeat. So Albion got another chance and his fate is still in his own hands.
West Brom doesn’t find the trail
However, the bankruptcy of the relegation from the Premier League was not a slip, but the continuation of a form crisis. Previously, there were only draws at Blackburn and at home against the Cottagers. Of course, this is not enough for the club’s ambitions. One reason for the current dry spell is the fickle offensive.
Immediately after the restart, it looked very weak and was twice without a goal. Afterwards she seemed to have caught herself, but this is not the case. Only two goals have been scored in the last three league games. A clear crash for the still second best attack series in the championship.
At least the defensive remains firm
On the other hand, the defense is still reliably on the move: six goals conceded in the eight games since the end of the season are a respectable value. This applies particularly to home games as part of this review. A clean sheet was obtained three times in four games.

In view of this yield and the recent weak storm of the guests, the odds for another clean sheet of the hosts on the encounter between West Brom and QPR are interesting.
Probable line-up of West Brom:
Johnstone – O’Shea – Ajayi – Bartley – Townsend – Sawyers – Livermore – Grosicki – Pereira – Krovinovic – Austin

QPR – Statistics & current form
The restart of the Super Hoops can be described as unsuccessful: five of the eight games were lost and only two victories were taken. However, the defensive has stabilized since the game resumed.
Although numerous goals were conceded last weekend in the 4: 3 win against Millwall, such defensive weak appearances were more of an exception recently. Only against Sheffield Wednesday did they concede at least three goals since the restart. Without these two games, the average of conceded goals has been moving on a goal since then.
This represents an improvement for the third-worst defense in a league-wide comparison. On the other hand, the series of attacks could not convince up to the recent appearance. Only three goals are scored in the first seven games after the restart.
Rangers with personnel problems in the storm
A negative factor in this context is that coach Mark Warburton’s team currently has to get along without Jordan Hugill, which means that one of the top two strikers is missing from London. In addition, Eberechi Eze, the other strongest scorer at QPR, is currently following his form.
His goal against Millwall last matchday was the first after seven unsuccessful attempts. Together, the two players named are responsible for 40 percent of all blue-and-white goals this season, making it clear how much the Rangers depend on their offensive performance.
Probable lineup of QPR:
Lumley – Masterson – Barbet – Manning – Kakay – Ball – Cameron – Eze – Amos – Shodipo – Chair

West Brom vs QPR Free Betting Tips
For West Brom, the next game is all-in: only one win gives you direct promotion and a return to the Premier League after two years. However, recent achievements have shown that Albion is shaking. Brentford and Fulham made up points on the last few days of the game, which is why only a threesome brings the Birmingham kickers safely across the finish line.
For the encounter between West Brom and QPR, the prediction includes a maximum of two goals by the home side. The enormous pressure in the game will not support the already weakening series of attacks in their appearance. In addition, the Londoners have largely stabilized their chronically shaky line of defense after the restart.
Key Facts – West Brom vs QPR tips
Albion has won the last three duels against QPR
Homeowners must win to ascend safely
For the Rangers, the match has only a statistical value
This applies particularly to the guest games when the 19th of the previous year does not have to play the game, but instead waits for a counterattack from a controlled defensive: only three goals were conceded in the four games after the restart. Not a completely new pattern – at home the number of goals scored is 1.83 higher than in the away games with 1.45.
Betting Prediction: Albion <2.5 goals
