QPR vs. Wigan Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

QPR takes on Wigan Athletic in a Premiership basement battle on Saturday, as both clubs look for the 3 points they need to escape the relegation zone.

QPR vs. Wigan Trends Analysis

QPR and Wigan have clashed seven times since 2001, with the two sides each claiming two wins while three matches ended in draws. Wigan has beaten QPR at Loftus Road once during this period.

QPR last hosted Wigan in 2004 in a match that produced a 1-0 win for the home side.

QPR is in dire straits coming into this fixture, with just a solitary FA Cup win against the Milton Keynes Dons to show for their last five matches, with the remaining fixtures producing three defeats and a draw. This poor run of form has seen QPR plummet into the relegation, albeit after a schedule that has pitted them against some of the top teams in the Premiership.

QPR is the lowest scoring team in the Premier League at the moment, with just 3 goals scored in five matches. Defence has done its manful best to keep the team afloat, doing well to concede just 5 goals given the absence of pressure up front.

Wigan, meanwhile, has been woeful and comes into this fixture on the back of seven matches without a win. The club’s last five matches have produced four defeats and a draw – the poorest record of any club in the Premier League over this period. To make matters worse, one of these defeats was conceded against League Two outfit, Swindon Town, in the FA Cup.

Wigan has scored 4 goals in its last five games. Defence has been cut to pieces over this period, conceding a whopping 14 goals in five matches.

QPR vs. Wigan Betting Tips

These two teams are currently playing such poor football that the loser of this encounter can rest assured that they are deserving of their place in the Premiership basement.

If QPR can’t knock up a couple of goals against the most atrocious defence in the Premiership in front of their home crowd, then they may as well start planning their Championship campaign for 2012-13. They’ll have no better opportunity for their strikers to find some form this season.

Wigan have their best chance in a month to get 3 points from a match, and will be looking for the upset in this match. They may have the slightest bit of self belief after holding Man City to a 1 goal victory last weekend.

One thing we’re not expecting in this fixture is a high scoring hame. These two teams have scored a cumulative total of 7 goals in five matches. While they’ve collectively conceded 19, there’s no sign that either has the capacity to blow the other off the park.

Our QPR vs. Wigan betting tip is therefore to take a straight back bet on under 2.75 goals being scored in this match in the over/under goals betting market at Bet365.
