General Football Tips (11-12/05/13)

...And Odds For QPR V The Toon

After Swansea's comeback against Wigan the other night, things are now looking slightly more comfortable.  SkyBet currently have us priced at a very skinny 1/20 to stay up, but I'll still feel a lot less nervous if we can beat QPR.

A week or so ago the possible permutations on how things would turn out at the bottom of the table were seemingly endless, but now the maths is suddenly looking a lot simpler.  If we get more points against QPR on Sunday than Wigan get against Arsenal on Tuesday then we're safe.  (Update: Chesea's win over Villa means if we beat QPR then we're definitely safe irrespective of how Wigan get on at Arsenal).

Hopefully this late season scare will serve as a wake up call to Ashley and Llambias for next season, but for now all that matters is the result against QPR.

Once again I'm avoiding making any tips on the Toon and just posting the odds for the most popular Toon betting markets, then following this up with a few general football tips...

Toon Odds:

QPR's last seven league games have seen them gain only two points, with five defeats and two draws (against Reading and Wigan).  Despite out own inconsistent recent form, the bookies therefore make us the favourites:
QPR - 3.3
Draw - 3.3
Newcastle - 2.2

Papiss Cisse is the favourite in the First Goalscorer market, with cash motivated mercenary Loic Remy priced not far behind:

Loic Remy7.02.75
Shola Amoebi*7.53.0
Hatem Ben Arfa8.03.4
Yohan Cabaye9.03.75
Yoan Gouffran10.04.0
Bobby Zamora10.04.0

* Currently still awaiting news on fitness.

And here are the odds for a few bets which I'd be very pleased to see happen:
Newcastle To Win To Nil - 4.0*
Newcastle To Keep A Clean Sheet - 3.1*
First Team To Score: Newcastle - 1.83
Newcastle To Win 1-0 And Papiss Cisse To Be First Goalscorer - 26.0
Newcastle To Win Either Half - 1.62

* QPR haven't scored in their last four league games.


General Football Tips:

Man City V Wigan - Win To Nil:
25 points on Man City To Win To Nil at 2.25

Aston Villa V Chelsea - Half Time/Full Time:
20 points on Chelsea/Chelsea at 2.75

Stoke V Tottenham - First Goalscorer:
15 points on Gareth Bale at 4.33

Man United V Swansea - Win To Nil:
25 points on Man United to Win To Nil at 2.38

Fulham V Liverpool - Win To Nil:
15 points on Liverpool To Win To Nil at 3.75

At this stage of the season obviously the only matches of any great interest are those which affect the relegation battle, but as usual I'll report on how things turned out after the weekend.

Footnote:  A small bet can make the match more exciting but gambling can be a risky business so never bet more than you can afford to lose.  The safest way to bet is with a free bet, so if you'd like the chance to claim a totally free £10 bet then sign up to SkyBet today using the banner link below:
