QPR are almost drinking in the Last Chance Saloon after Monday’s defeat at Fulham left them seven points adrift of safety and you have to think that the clash with Wigan, the team just outside of the drop zone, is a must-win clash for Harry Redknapp’s troops.
Rangers are at home, although with only two victories at Loftus Road this term it’s not clear whether that’s a blessing or not. However, if they can avoid the disastrous start they had at Craven Cottage last time out there’s every chance the hosts can put a dent in the Latics’ survival hopes while boosting their own.
William Hill price Redknapp’s side at 7/5 to secure a vital maximum haul and it’s tempting to double that up with a tally of three or more goals at 5/2 with bet365 as it could be a reasonably high-scoring encounter.
A man with the potential to contribute to that goal total is Loic Remy. The French striker took his tally for Rangers to four last time and he’s 17/10 at Sportingbet to net at any time in this one.
QPR to win and over 2.5 goals – 5/2 (bet365)
