Man City vs QPR betting
League form: WWWWW
Not many people predicted it, but as we head into the final game of another thrilling Premiership season it’s Manchester City that are in pole position to wrestle the title off neighbours Manchester United. They will be crowned Champions should they beat QPR here, unless United manage to beat Sunderland by at least 9 goals which of course is unlikely. After their loss at Arsenal which many people said ended the title race, City have fought back brilliantly winning their last five games, scoring fifteen goals and conceding just once. Many thought that their last game at Newcastle United could be a stumbling block, with the Magpies in great form themselves and challenging for a Champions League spot however, inspired by Yaya Toure, City eased past them leaving only one game between them and the title. They have a formidable unbeaten home record this season, having won all their games at the Etihad Stadium bar one.
Queens Park Rangers
League form: WLWLW
Rangers’ home and away form is very contrasting; they have been superb at Loftus Road this season having won their last five games there, beating teams such as Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. However, their form on the road is the reason for their lowly league position – They haven’t won away since November and have lost their last six away. They currently sit two points outside the relegation zone, with a significantly better goal difference than Bolton, which would most likely mean a draw would be enough on Sunday, a feat that is easier said than done.
Match Prediction: Manchester City win (1.14 – William Hill)
Also – Sergio Aguero to score anytime (1.50 – William Hill)
Over 2.5 goals (1.30 – William Hill)
When we look at the form book it is impossible to look past anything but a home win for this one. However, given the circumstances anything could happen. City are not used to this kind of pressure going into a final match of the season, whereas QPR will be desperate to pick up something themselves to ensure safety. Either way, I’m not sure that it will be as one-sided as is predicted and it is maybe worth looking into other match betting for this game rather than the home win which offers little value. However, City managed to cope with the pressure when they defeated Manchester United so you would still expect them to be able to complete the job and wrap up the title here.
