Emmanuel Adebayor has made a massive difference since arriving at Tottenham and he can be relied upon to find the scoresheet in the London derby with QPR.
Adebayor has scored against six London clubs already in his Premier League career and he will be keen to add QPR to this list.
It is 4/1 in the Premier League odds that Adebayor opens the scoring and 1/1 that he nets at any time within the 90 minutes.
His chances of finding the scoresheet are substantially boosted by the fact that Tottenham have scored at least twice in all of their last six league games and QPR could not prevent nine-man Chelsea creating numerous chances against them last weekend.
Meanwhile, they are also more susceptible than most to conceding goals from set plays and Adebayor is certainly more of an aerial threat than many of his Spurs teammates.
Adebayor scoring first would also be good news for punters keen to take advantage of the money back offer being offered by Ladbrokes for the game.
The offer is that losing win stakes on a victory for either team will be refunded if Tottenham score first against QPR but fail to claim three points.
Tottenham’s odds are 2/5 to beat QPR and they are unbeaten in their last 16 London derbies at White Hart Lane, which is a run that includes ten victories.
Meanwhile, their defeat to Manchester City earlier this season is the only time they have lost at home in the Premier League in 20 fixtures.
QPR will need to show some of the defensive resolve that helped them beat Chelsea as they go in search of a second successive London derby victory.
It is 8/1 that they beat Spurs and have already claimed one surprise on the road this season when beating Everton at Goodison Park.
The draw can be backed at 10/3.
