Big weekend for Blues and QPR

Chelsea’s run of four league games without a win ended last weekend with a comprehensive yet uninspiring 3-0 victory at home to Bolton.

This Saturday they travel to The Hawthorns to face a West Brom side who have two consecutive wins amassing nine goals and just conceding one.

Andre Villas-Boas knows now that a bad result against any of the lower sides could rather abruptly end his spell in English football.

It is almost inconceivable that Chelsea will lose this game but a price of 10/11 suggests it won’t be an easy task against the in-form Baggies. The home win is 33/10 while the draw can be backed at 13/5.

It seems likely that there will be over 2.5 goals in this game if we’re going on current form, but Chelsea don’t tend to score many away from home recently and it’s difficult to say either way; Over 2.5 can be backed at 4/5 while the under is 19/20.

Once again Fernando Torres will be looking to break a horrific scoring duck for the Blues and the Spaniard may be reinstated to the starting line-up if the injury Daniel Sturridge picked up on England duty rules him out.

Torres is 7/4 to score for the first time since mid-October, while Didier Drogba seems to be back to some form and he is 6/4 anytime, 11/2 first.

Will Torres be smiling again this summer?

We have opened a market at BetVictor on whether or not Torres will make the 23-man Spanish squad for the Euros and bet:
Yes: 8/11
No: Evens

Last weekend’s west London derby saw Fulham narrowly beat QPR at Loftus Road and the R’s this week take on Everton with just one league win in their last 14 outings.

The Toffees seem to be improving in the second half of the season and are unbeaten in five albeit with three 1-1 draws in that period.

QPR’s form has seen them drop to just one point off the bottom in what is shaping up to be a great relegation battle unless, of course, you are a supporter of one of the clubs involved.

Everton are 7/5 with Rangers 85/40 and the draw 23/10.

Bobby Zamora is 8/5 to score anytime and Jamie Mackie’s price of 100/30 seems big and perhaps worth a bet. They are 6s and 11s respectively to net first.

If I’m honest I can’t see goals in this game and a price of 3/4 for under 2.5 goals suggests there won’t be many.

Fulham play Wolves on Sunday afternoon at the absurd time of 2.05pm; television dictating the kick-off times as is so often the way.

Last weekend was only their second away win of the season as they try to shrug off the label of ‘bad travellers’ in the Premier League.

Their opponents, had it not been for a second half comeback against Newcastle, would be in the relegation zone sitting on the same points as the bottom two clubs.

The Cottagers are 4/7 to win this game while Wolves are a massive 6/1 with 31/10 for the draw.

On current form Fulham are up there with the likes of City, United and Arsenal with 10 points from their last six games and are unbeaten at home in 2012.

Pavel Pogrebnyak is 6/4 to make it three in three since his move from Stuttgart in January and that looks a decent price against a fragile Wolves defence.

We are only 10 days away from the Cheltenham Festival and we are already offering Non Runner No Bet on all 27 races.
