Queens Park Rangers vs. Aston Villa Predictions: Premier League Picks

Dab smack in the middle of the Premier League table, Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers are trying to make some headway. The two will meet up in English Premiership betting action on Sunday morning at Loftus Road.

QPR had been blanked in back to back matches before taking on the Wolverhampton Wanderers on the road. It was a fixture in which the Rangers were big underdogs, but they came out and absolutely dominated, winning 3-0 in a match that turned out to never be in much doubt. Joey Barton started off the scoring in the eighth minute, and the floodgates only opened up from there. Barton is the man that is really expected to be getting this team off to a good start in EPL action on a regular basis, and if he isn’t creating anything up front, this offense is in a heck of a lot of trouble.

Carlos Cuellar still isn’t ready to come back into the lineup for the Villains, but Aston Villa still knows that it has some potential, even possibly for a European season this year. It is clear that Arsenal is down, and if that’s the case and things really don’t get any better for teams like Tottenham Hotspur, the opportunity really could be there for something special to happen this season at Villa Park.

Picking up four draws and a win in five matches leaves Aston Villa in some unusual company. There are only four teams that enter this weekend with a goose egg in the loss column, and though Villa is ranked the lowest of the four teams, it is still something to be proud of.

Gabriel Agbonlahor has been the hero of this club this year, accounting for three goals of the six that the team has on the campaign. He also has a helper to boot.

Still, Manager Kevin McLeish knows that he has some big time expectations that he has to fill in this job, and picking up three points in a road fixture like this would be incredibly important.

The last time that these two teams met on the pitch was at Villa Park in the 2008 Carling Cup. QPR took out an unimpressive side of backup Villains 1-0 for a huge road ‘W’.

QPR is a narrow favorite on the Premier League odds, as they are +130 favorites to claim the three points at home. However, the Villains are +210, while the draw is set at +225. The ‘total’ is set at a flat 2.5.
