Michael Beale’s QPR side will hope a vociferous home crowd can inspire the side to three points today as the Hoops entertain a much fancied Middlesbrough side.
The Boro are one of the favourites to go up this season and a 1-1 draw with West Brom last week was a decent result.
Away form is all important however and the experienced Chris Wilder will be hopeful of gaining maximum points today in London.
Queens Park Rangers themselves will be looking for improvement after a narrow single goal loss away at Blackburn Rovers last week.

Queens Park Rangers did not look too good in their opening league game; although they lost by one goal, the West London side couldn’t register a shot on target. QPR will hope for a different result as they host Middlesbrough; Ilias Chair is the man to watch.
On the other hand, Middlesbrough are coming off a 1:1 draw against West Brom in their opening game; although they had the lead at half-time, Chris Wilder’s men couldn’t hold on for the win.
Boro will visit Loftus Road for their first road game of the season; will they be able to take all three points from this game?
Tip 1: Queens Park Rangers or draw @ 8/15
Middlesbrough have done fairly well since the end of last season; they’ve won three of five games played since then, with a draw and a loss.
On the other hand, Queens Park Rangers have two wins, two draws and two losses in six games played since the end of last season.
It’s fair to point out that QPR have had Middlesbrough’s number in recent years; they have no losses in their last six clashes with Boro, with three wins and three draws.
Considering QPR have the advantage of playing at home, we believe they’ll take at least a point from this match in front of their home fans.
Tip 2: BTTS yes @ 5/6
Middlesbrough haven’t had much trouble finding the back of the net; they scored in eight of their last nine games, averaging exactly two goals per game in that stretch.
In like manner, Queens Park Rangers have scored their fair share of goals; although they didn’t score in their last two games, QPR registered 18 goals in six games prior to that.
Additionally, when QPR and Middlesbrough face off, both teams usually get on the score sheet; as both teams scored in five of the last six meetings between these teams.
On that note, both teams should score at Loftus Road today.
Tip 3: Over 2.5 total goals @ 11/10
We should start by mentioning that the last three meetings between these teams went over the 2.5 goal margin; as a matter of fact, those games saw four goals scored on average.
Also, we pointed out that Boro averaged two goals per game in their last nine games; five of their last seven matches went over 2.5.
Likewise, QPR averaged over two goals per game in their last eight games; with four of their last six games going over 2.5.
With all this in mind, these teams should score up to three goals between them and the QPR v Middlesbrough game could end up an entertaining match.
