Reasons for betting on Queens Park Rangers vs Ipswich Town tip
Queens Park Rangers and Ipswich Town have suffered two defeats each before this game. They were eliminated from the English Football League Cup and subsequently lost in the last round of the Sky Bet Championship.
It is why this game is very significant for both rivals. However, Ipswich is in a better position because they are currently second in the standings. On the other hand, Queens Park Rangers are in the middle, at the 10th position.
Queens Park Rangers overview
Coach Ian Holloway has a lot of problems lately. The Rangers posted only one victory in the previous 5 matches. If everybody expected a defeat against Cardiff City away from home 1-2, nobody was hoping that they are going to be eliminated in the English Football League Cup.
The Rangers lost at home against Brentford, 1-4.
The critical part of the team is the defense, which allowed 8 goals in the most recent 3 league events. When we look the efficiency of matches of the home team, the Rangers prefer to play open games. In 4 of the last 5 contests, we saw both teams to score. That is mostly because, as we already said, the defense is underachieving. On the other side of the field, the attack is doing their part of the job, and they scored in 6 of the latest 7 matches.
Ipswich Town overview
The Tractor Boys suffered their first defeat after 4 straight wins in the Sky Bet Championship. Surprisingly it was at home against Fulham 0-2. Coach Mick McCarthy criticised his players pretty badly after the game. They have allowed the opening goal in 4 out of 5 previous games.
The only difference is that in the match against Fulham, they did not have the strength to come back. Before that contest, Ipswich was eliminated from the League Cup against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park 1-2. In the previous 6 events, 5 concluded with a moderate number of goals, 2 or 3.
But when looking away from home, Ipswich plays efficient matches and both teams to score and over 2.5 goals were seen in the last 3 consecutive meetings.
Head to head matches
The previous two campaigns were equally divided. The hosts were winning, and 3 games, of the total 4, saw a moderate number of goals, between 2 and 3.
Queens Park Rangers scored the opening goal of the event, 5 times on the last 6 occasions.
Coaches Mick McCarthy and Ian Holloway are going to encounter for the 16th time in their respective careers.
Ipswich Town coach has a slightly better record with 6 victories, while Holloway has 4. Five games ended in a draw.
Prediction for Queens Park Rangers vs Ipswich Town tip
This is a highly ungrateful match for predicting the winner. Because of this, we will focus on goals.
In our belief, both teams to score should be realistic. It is something that the current form of these rivals backs up.
For the second bet, we would choose over 2.5 goals.
