QPR vs Watford predictions, betting tips and preview for tonight’s FA Cup fifth round tie at Loftus Road. Championship side QPR will fancy their chances of an upset tonight but have only won one of their last seven matches. See our predictions and betting tips below.
It is not very often PR have a good run in the FA Cup, before this season they have crashed out at the third round stage in the previous five years. So far they have beaten Leeds and needed a replay to beat Portsmouth to get to this point. Home advantage could see them put up a good fight here but their form isn’t great coming into this match and last weekend they were 4-0 down at half-time against Birmingham. They did almosy get it back to 4-4 but missed a penalty in injury time, however Watford wouldn’t let something like that happen. Watford have already won at Woking and Newcastle in this season’s FA Cup and we’re predicting they’ll do the same at Loftus Road tonight.
Watford striker Troy Deeney could be the way to go for an anytime goalscorer bet tonight, the big man has already scored in the competition this season and will relish the battle with the Championship defenders. He has never been a prolific scorer but did find the net in the 2-0 win over Woking earlier in the competition. It would be foolish of Watford manager to make changes to his starting line-up for this game given his side are safe from relegation and going along nicely in the Premier League, so we’re hoping Deeney starts and gets on the scoresheet. He’s 15/8 with bet365 to find the net.
We’re already predicting a Watford victory in tonight’s clash and we need a correct score to back that up. QPR to tend to score goals and that could be the case again tonight, but we’re expecting Watford to win a close match and for them to score two goals for their third straight away match in this season’s FA Cup. Our final QPR vs Watford prediction is for Watford to win 2-1 and the odds are 15/2 with bet365.
Watford to win – 17/20 with bet365.
Troy Deeney to score first – 15/8 with bet365.
