Where To Put Your Money vs QPR

United have the chance to move eight points clear at the top of the Premier League if they beat QPR a Old Trafford this weekend, and they are a top priced 1.2 with Paddy Power to do so and heap the pressure on rivals City.

They play just hours before City visit Arsenal and Sir Alex will be well aware of the psychological blow they can inflict on their neighbours.

The champions were briefly eight points behind Roberto Mancini’s side at the start of December but a win here would see that situation completely reversed and make the title theirs to lose.

QPR are embroiled in the relegation battle at the bottom of the table and also desperate for points.

Mark Hughes’ men face a difficult run-in but have done well in recent weeks to register home victories over Liverpool and Arsenal.

However they have been a totally different side away from Loftus Road, and are without a win on their road since victory at Wolves way back in September.

Hughes may be hoping for a favour from his old boss but is unlikely to find the gaffer in generous mood as the champions look to close in on a 20th league title, and the stats suggest that the former striker will leave empty handed.

United have won nine and lost none of their last 12 matches against QPR in all competitions and won 32 and lost just two of their last 36 Premier League games at Old Trafford.

They have also conceded just one goal in their last five Premier League home matches and have a strong squad heading into the run-in which has been boosted by the news that Nani is fit again after suffering an ankle injury in the 3-2 defeat to Athletic Bilbao last month.

It’s impossible to envisage them not winning this with plenty to spare, so it comes down to who is going to get the opener and what the final score will be.

Rooney is once gain the favourite to score first at a best price of 3.75 with Betfred.

However that looks skinny enough, and better value could be Valencia who has 12 assists and four goals in 16 Premier starts this season and is looking sharper than ever.

He is an 9 chance with Betfred to break the deadlock, and that looks worth a small punt.

United to win 3-0 or 4-0 is my idea of the outcome, and those scorelines can be backed at 7.5 with Paddy Power and 11 with Boylesports respectively.

    LoneStarRed,

    Read it pal, thanks for the tips :)

    Costas – ;) i m sure STR will be cursing you..

    where are all our legends? still wanking in the DRAKE thread eh? :P

  9. Mark says:

    Put your money on city to win the league at 5/1 and barca to win Europe at 6/5 , do a double it pays nice.

  10. Sandeep1878 says:

    Papii,

    no problem at all mate, you can call me that, no big deal…

    Costas,

    How much you are betting on Berba starting this game? ;)

  11. Costas says:

    @Sandeep

    Ah, Scott knows how much I love this blog. :lol:

    As for Berba, I am not good at bet talk, so I’ll just say there’s no chance in hell he’ll start. ;)

  12. CedarsDevil says:

    We should not take this game lightly, QPR are fighting for their lives and will come to OT knowing that the whole world expects a home win so they will play without any pressure.

    Having said that….

    Come on you mighty REDS

  13. wayne says:

    City at 5/1 is a mugs bet stick a fork in those cunts,Barca at just over evs is also shit.No wonder Bookies always win with all the mugs in this world

  14. MG says:

    :lol:

  15. Sandeep1878 says:

    This one is for Fletch,

    He had a very dry sense of humour and my favourite story about him was about a day when he was leaving Old Trafford after a match, As he emerged from United’s dressing room, a prominent reporter from one of the national daily’s was heard to ask him; “Martin. Can I have a quick word?” To which the answer was priceless:

    “Yes. Velocity!”

    With that he turned on his heel and was gone.

  16. Sandeep1878 says:

    FlethTHEMAN,

    quality stuff written in it, but it is very long post, read in your leisure…

  17. Sandeep1878 says:

    Costas – Cheers pal

  18. Atin says:

    Sandeep – I think that was Gordon Stratchan?

  19. wayne says:

    Sandeep good thanks mate thanks for asking

  20. Mark says:

    Wayne , wake up barca will win Europe easy!! And city are a great price at 5/1 if utd draw 1 game it’s back in city’s hands, and utd will drop points so the double is worth a few pound!

  21. CedarsDevil says:

    Put money on city winning it and hope United drop points? I am lost for words

  22. WillieRedNut says:

    Shush Marky Mark. Your Blue nose is showing.

  23. wayne says:

    Mark you’re assuming City will run the table and imo their already cooked they’ve looked shit for over a month now,Bookies aren’t mugs some have already paid out on Utd winning the league and I don’t think Barca will walk over Real or Bayern either team will be a tough test assuming they beat the rent boys 6/5 is shit odds

  24. Costas says:

    @Cedars

    Why mate? Sounds like something a City fan would do.

  25. CedarsDevil says:

    Costas

    True that, guess this one flew right over my head! ha ha

  26. Mark says:

    Funny barca run over real everytime they play them, I’m a utd fan but be realistic money’s money, don’t be blinded by a poor utd team in a poor league ,yous crow about the great team we have , were a shadow of teams gone by, look what happened in the Europe league.

  27. WillieRedNut says:

    I think you’re blinded by your Blue nose. Hate is no replacement for the truth. Speak it, or go!

  28. King Eric says:

    Willie is spot on. Mark is a bitter. Three posts this week. First one after the europhia of Monday night he goes on about Fergie leaving. Second one about selling Welbeck. Third one saying City could win league. You are fooling nobody son.

  29. King Eric says:

    Mark. Get back to Blue Moon lad or RAWK you are boring.

    Munich or Madrid will win the European League. Milan are dog shit yet for a exceedingly dodgy pen the other night could have knocked Barca out.

  30. Costas says:

    @Cedars

    Like King Eric said, the other day Marky said he’d sell Danny Welbeck the next morning.

    Remember a guy called Owen who was celebrating after City beat Bolton because he bet on them to do so? Hmm…

  31. Mark says:

    King Eric , what a prediction madrid or Munich will win Europe , why do u dislike barca , are u bitter cause they destroyed us in two finals ?? Yeah that’s it! Take of the blinkers lads , the English league is a waste of time , anyway I’m off on holidays to watch the mighty barca!!

  32. Redbilly says:

    Mark- you clearly are. City fan. Just be upfront and admit it. If you wish to ba e a dig Fine with me but be up front about it. Cheers.

    If your not a bitter then my apologies but I would find no solace in winning a bet based on city winning the title. Rather flush the money down the Fucking toilet.

  33. Redbilly says:

    Bluemoooooon

    Mario acts the buffoon

    Mancini’s dancing his tune

    Le arse may increase your gloooooom

    ( fingers crossed)

  34. WillieRedNut says:

    A blinkered blue nose isn’t fooling anyone. You’re stench was called right away.

  35. Redbilly says:

    Willie. Personally I have no problem with a rival fan co
    Ing on for the banter. Just be up front about it … Then fuck off.

  36. hallengray says:

    Mark
    buzz off mate, you don’t have to talk if you don’t have stuffs in there. so because manUtd is top of the league with a bad European outing means the English league is not competitive. smh.
