Queens Park Rangers - Wigan Betting Preview: Goals galore as the Latics look to heap pressure on Redknapp's men

There's a vital relegation battle on Sunday as the Latics visit west London, with Hugh Wilson backing at least three goals along with a tasty 11/2 value bet
A narrow loss for Queens Park Rangers against London rivals Fulham has deepened their relegation woes, with Harry Redknapp’s men trailing Wigan, who sit just outside the relegation places, by seven points. Both of these sides have seven vital matches left to try to secure their Premier League status for next season.

QPR had started to turn a corner with two victories at the start of March, but recent losses against Aston Villa and Fulham have put a major dent in their great escape attempt.

Redknapp’s men, who have won once in their last nine home matches, are narrow favorites at 11/8 (2.38) with Paddy Power to get a much-needed victory which would appear to overvalue the hosts.

Roberto Martinez’s side are somewhat experts when it comes to the final quarter of the season. Over the past couple of years, Wigan have seemed down and out, but each time they pop up out of nowhere and survive relegation.  

This season is no different. The Latics have recorded three wins out of their last four, and are slight underdogs at 2/1 (3.00) with Paddy Power to all but send QPR to the Championship. The same firm price the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

Both sides haven’t struggled to score in recent weeks, with their defences leaking goals as well. Over 2.5 goals in this encounter is hugely tempting at 4/5 (1.80).

This bet would have paid out in QPR’s last four matches, as well as eight of Wigan’s last nine, so expect this bet to come home fairly easily, with both teams needing a win and likely to attack from the off.

For those looking for extra value, the handicap market has thrown out a fantastic price. Wigan -1 handicap is a staggering 11/2 (6.50) with Paddy Power. The Latics have been on fire on the road in recent weeks, with only Chelsea beating them in their last five matches.

Not only are they proving tough to beat away from home, but they are finding the net easily, with this bet paying out in their last three away matches.
