The Gunners were poor in midweek when losing 2-0 at home to Schalke in the Champions League, and they were also beaten in their last Premier League match, going down 1-0 to Norwich at Carrow Road.
However, Arsenal's home form has been solid, and they face a side at the bottom of the table and without a league win in the Premier League this season.
The stats reveal that there have been 42 meetings between the two clubs in the history of the league, with Arsenal Winning 18, QPR 12 and the honours being shared on 12 occasions.
That suggests it could well be a close fought affair, and under 2.5 goals looks well worth a look at 8/5.
Olivier Giroud has taken time to find his feet since his move from Montpellier but could cause Mark Hughes' men all sorts of problem with his powerful aerial presence in the box.
Jack Wilshere, who will be in contention to make his first Premier League appearance in 18 months after running out the 90 minutes in a 2-1 victory over Everton at Under-21 level, is a 23/2 chance in the same market to come back with a bang.
