Burnley v QPR: Clarets win could mean curtains for Redknapp
With Burnley heading into this relegation six-pointer off the back of a run of three games without defeat and facing a QPR side still reeling from a 3-0 loss to League One Sheffield United there looks to be only one winner in Lancashire.
The Clarets can be backed at 6/5 to win in 90 minutes against a Rangers side that has so far failed to pick up a single point away from Loftus Road in the Premier League this term.
Ladbrokes is offering 23/10 on Burnley racking up a 10th draw of the season while those fancying QPR to do the double over their relegation rivals can also get 23/10 on such an outcome.
Ahead of kick-off, however, we’ve come up with three tips to help you make the most of the action.
Five of the nine defeats Rangers have suffered on the road in the Premier League this term have come in games where the Londoners also failed to score and after drawing a blank against the Blades in the FA Cup they could be in trouble here.
Two of Burnley’s three wins in the top-flight this season have come in games where the Clarets have also managed to keep clean sheets and a similar outcome could be on the cards.
While Danny Ings and strike partner Ashley Barnes have weighed in with the majority of Burnley’s goals this term, deadline day signing George Boyd has got in on the act of late with the Scotland international netting in two of the Clarets’ last three games.
Having scored in back-to-back games in the Premier League heading into this encounter, the 29-year-old could be one to watch at Turf Moor.
With so much at stake in this bottom-of-the-table encounter a tight contest could ensue, but we still fancy Burnley to do the job given that the Clarets beat their London opponents the previous time the two sides met at Turf Moor in the Championship last season.
Two of Burnley’s three victories in the Premier League have come by a 1-0 scoreline, making a bet on a repeat here another tempting prospect.
