Liverpool v QPR: Remy back, but home win to nil still fancied

| 18.05.2013

There is a tendency for Liverpool to sometimes be priced up too short for their homes games, especially as they have only won eight at Anfield in the top-flight so far this season.

However, few will argue that they deserve to be odds-on to brush aside QPR on the final day, even if 1/4 on a Liverpool win is a tough price to get overly excited about.

On the plus side is that Liverpool have won 18 of their 21 career meetings on QPR with home soil, including four of the five to take place in the Premier League era.

But punters looking for a price that is more on the enticing side may prefer the 11/10 that Liverpool beat QPR to nil and there are a few reasons to believe they can defeat the Premier League’s bottom club without conceding.

QPR have scored fewer goals than any other Premier League club across the last six fixtures, converting only two chances in this period.

Meanwhile, in their five fixtures so far this season against the three clubs confirmed as being relegated, Liverpool have kept clean sheets in them all, including a 3-0 triumph at Loftus Road.

If there is one threat to this bet landing, it is that Loic Remy is available for selection despite his recent arrest.

One of the more popular bets will be on Daniel Sturridge’s scoring exploits after his hat-trick against London opposition in his latest appearance at Fulham.

Sturridge has stepped in for Luis Suarez more than adequately, with six goals in four appearances and he is 4/7 to strike at any time in the 90 minutes.

Alternatively, it is a short 9/1 that Sturridge grabs back-to-back hat-tricks and 8/11 that he scores at any time in a Liverpool victory in the wincast market.
