Mercurial Taarabt can inspire QPR with another goal to lift punters

QPR hope to make it three consecutive home victories by beating Swansea tonight, and Adel Taarabt will be essential to their chances of doing so, with the attacking midfielder a 7/4 chance to score at any time.

Taarabt was inspirational in the Rs last Loftus Road outing, when they triumphed 2-1 over Arsenal, where the Moroccan opened the scoring to bolster his side’s survival chances.

He can be backed at 6/1 to score first in tonight’s game too, though punters who place a losing first scorer bet will have their stake refunded should he find the net at any time.

With that in mind, Bobby Zamora could be worth taking on as a 5/1 chance to notch first, as the powerful striker is keen to get back amongst the goals after sitting out the weekend trip to Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Jamie Mackie hit a crucial winner against Liverpool only weeks ago, and it could pay dividends to invest in him bagging the opener at 10/1.
