QPR had an appalling time of things in the top flight last term and had to get the biggest wage-earners off the books during the summer, although things are now looking better for the west London outfit who have a chance to put daylight between themselves and the chasing pack on Saturday.
The Hoops have won eight and drawn two of their ten matches at home, with bet365 free bet offering an attractive 23/20 about them beating Leicester in front of the Sky Sports cameras and that looks a value bet considering their excellent form on home soil.
In Charlie Austin, Rangers have arguably the division’s best striker and Hull might have wished they had secured his services when they had a chance during the summer, with the former Burnley man having scored in four of his last five matches.
Austin is a 4/1 chance to break the deadlock, although Matt Phillips is available at twice the price and the winger scored against former club Blackpool last weekend, having also found the net against Bournemouth recently.
It is also worth noting that QPR have kept a clean sheet in their last three home games and taking a chance on the home win to nil could reap dividends, with Paddy Power offering an attractive 5/2 about this happening. Clint Hill and Richard Dunne are experienced centre-halves playing in front of a goalkeeper who has represented England in a major tournament.
Leicester’s Capital One Cup run came to an end on Tuesday night when Manchester City claimed a 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium and Nigel Pearson must now focus his team on the task of securing one of the two automatic promotion slots this season.
City are third in the division and they have won five of their ten matches on the road this term, although the fact that they have suffered four defeats away from home points even further at the odds-against about a home win happening here.
Leicester have lost their last two matches on the road although they have found the net on the past six occasions and you can get 11/4 about an away win in this encounter, with Dave Nugent likely to operate as the lone striker for this match.
Whether they can get past QPR’s formidable defence remains to be seen and a home win by a 1-0 scoreline makes appeal at 13/2, while a 2-0 victory is a 10/1 chance with BetVictor which would see the Super Hoops continue to march back towards the Premier League.
