Premiership new boys QPR suggested that they’re serious about staying in the top flight last week as they brushed aside Wolves 3-0 at Molineux and as that result came on the back of another impressive performance, albeit in a draw, against Newcastle, it’s perhaps not surprising that Sportingbet have installed Neil Warnock’s men as 5/4 favourites to beat Aston Villa.
However, Villa, 12/5 outsiders, remain unbeaten having drawn four of their five fixtures and Alex McLeish’s resilient troops can grab another share of the spoils at Loftus Road, a result Betdaq price at 3.3 (23/10).
It’s a clash that looks set to see both teams find the net (5/6, Partybets) and so a 1-1 scoreline catches the eye at a cracking 13/2 with Ladbrokes while with three goals in five league outings Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor could pocket punters a profit in west London.
The pacy attacker has looked rejuvenated under McLeish and at 8/1 courtesy of Paddy Power he looks huge in the first scorer betting. The same firm also quote Agbonlahor at 11/4 to get on the scoresheet at any time and that price is hard to resist.
