Match: Albion v QPR
Prices: Albion 1/2, QPR 6/1, Draw 3/1 with SkyBet
Last-time out: Albion secured an emphatic win over Fulham last Friday (landing an 8/11 payout for followers of this column), while QPR dented Cardiff's playoff hopes with a creditable draw in Wales.
Form: After the weekend's results, the situation remains the same, but all could change on Tuesday night when Burnley host Middlesbrough. Albion are on a ten-match unbeaten run at present and if they were to extend that run to 14, it might be sufficient to secure automatic promotion. QPR have only lost to Middlesbrough in the last seven matches, so they will be no pushovers despite their long odds.

Result: The 1/2 offered for Albion is too short to invest in, but with neither the draw or a loss a palatable outcome, we will look for more different options.
I think that there will be goals in this match and so the first port of call is to back Both Teams To Score at 11/10. We will follow that up with some long-priced correct score wagers. Albion to win 3-2 is 33/1 and a 2-2 draw is 20/1. In the half-time/full-time category, Brighton/Draw is 20/1 and that should also be taken.
Overall, then, perhaps some negative bets that we would rather not see landed, so keep those punts small for this one. Both teams to score = YES is 11/10.
Goalscorer tips:James Wilson (5/1) deserves to get back on the scoresheet. He had a great game on Friday and could reap the rewards this time.
