Another win for the promotion chasers
Bet 1: Back QPR @ 5/4 – KO 19:45 GMT
QPR made it four wins in a row in the Championship at Coventry on Saturday, and they now sit in fourth place in the league – just five points off automatic promotion, with two games in hand.
It’s a bit of a surprise that they are as big as 5/4 to win at home to Swansea this evening, even though the Swans won at the weekend.
The Welsh side only beat Preston 1-0 at home, and prior to that they had gone five without a victory in all competitions. They have also only won two of their last 10 on the road – losing two of their last four.
Forest to have it easy against Barnsley
Bet 2: Back Nottingham Forest @ 11/20 – KO 19:45 GMT
Forest made it three wins on the bounce on Saturday, as they beat rivals Derby 2-1. Steve Cooper has taken the team from towards the bottom of the table, all the way up to eighth, and they are just four points off the top six, with a game in hand.
The visitors to the City Ground are Barnsley, and they are bottom, with just 14 points. They were beaten 2-1 at Birmingham at the weekend, and that was their third defeat in four.
Since their last win on November 3rd, the Tykes have played nine times in the Championship, losing six and drawing three. It’s hard to see them causing Forest any real issues tonight.
Home advantage to prove the difference
Bet 3: Back Luton @ 4/5 – KO 19:45 GMT
The Hatters were beaten 2-0 at Bramall Lane at the weekend, so hopefully that won’t half their momentum, as prior to that, they had been unbeaten in five in all competitions – winning four of them.
Opponents, Bristol City, put a 6-2 defeat to Fulham behind them by winning 3-2 against Cardiff, but that was at home, and on their travels, their results have been pretty dire.
The Robins have taken just one point from a possible 18 away from home of late, whereas in Luton’s last two at Kenilworth Road, they held Fulham and beat Bournemouth.
