Tottenham come face-to-face with former boss Harry Redknapp and his QPR side at Loftus Road in Saturday’s early kick-off in the Premier League and it’s a safe-looking 5/6 courtesy of bet365 for Spurs to make it a disappointing reunion for the Hoops manager.
Admittedly, the hosts will still be on a high after their stunning victory at Chelsea and last-gasp cup leveller against West Brom but the visitors have registered seven wins in their last nine league games and the only defeat in that time was at Everton, who were somewhat fortunate to strike twice in the dying moments, so the formbook points to Andre Villas-Boas’ troops.
Nevertheless, QPR are scrapping for their lives and with Redknapp desperate to get one over on his old club, they will certainly make life difficult for their opponents. Subsequently, Ladbrokes’ 29/10 for Tottenham to nick it by one isn’t without appeal and Stan James post an equally enticing 17/2 against a 2-1 Spurs success.
Gareth Bale meanwhile, was on target again in the cup victory over Coventry and with seven goals in eight domestic appearances the Welsh flyer is great value at 6/1 with Coral to put his team 1-0 up in this one.
