QPR have found the net just once this season and Stoke have only struck twice in their four fixtures so the prospect of tuning into the pair’s clash at Loftus Road hardly sets the pulse racing.
There’s not much between the pair in the betting, BetVictor rating the hosts at 15/8 and betway pricing the Potters at 9/5 but neither side has convinced enough this term to warrant a flutter at those prices.
A case can be made for a stalemate in the match, although bookies are treading carefully where that’s concerned so the best price available is bet365′s 9/4, which is a touch on the slender side.
Subsequently, it’s worth focusing on the pair’s lack of goals with Ladbrokes’s 7/4 for the clash to produce fewer than 1.5 standing out and those wanting a more speculative flutter can keep stakes low and go for a goalless affair at 7/1 via bet365.
