After smashing QPR 5-0 in the season opener back in August, Swansea City hosts Rangers in a match that could be a lot closer than their first encounter.

QPR was the butt of the league for the first few months and since 2013 started the team has stepped it a bit. The squad has defeated Chelsea, and drawn Manchester City and West Ham. Despite only having two victories all season long, the London side has improved its level of play and scored a big pickup by signing centre back Chris Samba in the transfer window.

Though the Swansea rampage in its first tilt will leave some bettors wary, I suspect a tighter contest this time around and am backing QPR to draw for the fifth straight match, which is currently paying out 3.50 over at Swansea has also drawn 50 percent of its matches at home, so the odds do offer some value.

Should Swansea beat QPR again, the odds are listed at 1.80. The Welsh side has a record of 4-6-2 at Liberty City Stadium, and the goal difference of only +4 doesnt indicate dominance on its own soil.

The QPR win is unlikely at 4.50, but if you feel a possible upset and don't want to risk the draw result being thrown into the equation, then consider the away draw no bet at 3.30.

Despite the fact that Swansea home matches have notched a total of 3.33 goals on average, I am siding with the under 2.5 here only the basis that QPR matches have hit mark in the last five straight games along with conceding the least amount of goals while on the road than any other team in the bottom half of the table. QPR is also without star striker Loic Remy due to injury. The U2.5 can be had, also at, for 1.77.
