Second meet third in the early kick off in the Championship this weekend, with Hugh Wilson backing the home side to take all three pointsWith Leicester City currently leading the Championship by eight points having played a game extra, Queens Park Rangers and Burnley will be keen to reduce that gap as they face each other on Saturday in a game that could go a long way towards deciding which of these sides can lay down a serious title challenge.
Sean Dyche's side were the early pace setters in the league, but some poor form in recent weeks has seen them fall off the pace and they are in danger of losing touch with the automatic promotion places if they taste defeat.
They come into this match with only one victory away from home in their last eight matches, with the Clarets beating bottom of the league Yeovil Town. bet365 price them as outsiders at 14/5 (3.80) to beat QPR.
The R's come into this match with four wins in their last five matches, having beaten Bolton 2-1 midweek.
Harry Redknapp will be keen to keep up with Leicester as they approach the final quarter of the season. bet365 price them at 19/20 (1.95) to win. The same firm price the draw at 5/2 (3.50).
The over 2.5 goals bet is tempting at 21/20 (2.05) in this fixture with the bet paying out in in QPR's last five matches. However, with Burnley struggling for goals away from home in the league, it's worth avoiding this bet.
With Burnley's poor away form in mind, it's worth taking advantage of QPR's price outright at 19/20 (1.95). Redknapp's side have been fantastic at home this season, winning eight of their last 10 home games. With the R's also winning four of their last five games, they are the team full of confidence and worth backing at odds against.
