Bet Of The Day August 16 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Norwich are unbeaten to start the season
  • Norwich have scored six goals in their two games
  • Norwich are unbeaten in 16 of the last 18 meetings with QPR since 2008
  • QPR picked up the least amount of points in the Championship after the World Cup last season
  • QPR have already lost 4-0 to Watford this season

We’re off to the EFL Cup for today’s best bet as QPR and Norwich square off for a spot in the next round.

Liking the value with Norwich here.

The Canaries are playing some great football to start the season under new boss David Wagner and have created the second-most expected goals in the Championship.

Norwich got their campaign up and running with a 2-1 win at home over Hull before claiming a thrilling 4-4 draw on the road against a strong Southampton side.

QPR meanwhile were crushed 4-0 by Watford in their Championship opener. Watford aren’t expected to contend this season, so that’s a poor result.

QPR did beat Cardiff 2-1 on the weekend, but Cardiff are one of the weaker sides in the league. Norwich are a huge step up in class.

Both sides are expected to rotate in this Cup clash, meaning Norwich’s bigger squad depth will benefit them. QPR are a bit thin and could find the going tough here.

Norwich have also had the wood over QPR for the better part of the last decade – indeed, they’ve only suffered two defeats in the last 18 meetings between the teams since 2008.

Norwich are the much stronger team and even with some squad rotations, they should prove too classy for a QPR side tipped to struggle this season.
