QPR v Tottenham Hotspur Betting: 10 vital statistics

1. Despite a run of just three wins from eleven games in all competitions, Tottenham are favourites at 1.95 to overcome QPR at Loftus Road on Saturday and strengthen their grip on a place in the top four of the Premier League.

2. QPR still find themselves amongst the Premier League’s relegation candidates, so a win against Spurs would be vital in terms of their survival chances. Mark Hughes’ side are available 3.85 to come out of the game with all three points.

3. The home side will find some promise in the fact that they have beaten Liverpool, Arsenal and Swansea in their last three Premier League games at Loftus Road.

4. In four trips to QPR, Tottenham have only won once in a 3-2 victory back in September 1995.

5. The London pair also met in the 1982 FA Cup final, which Spurs ended up winning 1-0. A repeat of that winning scoreline for Spurs on Saturday is available at 8.50.

6. Spurs and QPR have met 48 times before now. QPR have won 13 of those meetings, Spurs have been victorious 19 times and there has been 16 draws.

7. Tottenham have not won an away match in the Premier League since beating Norwich at Carrow Road on December 27th last year. The North Londoners also haven’t scored in their last three away league games. 

8. After bagging a goal in the disappointing 5-1 defeat to Chelsea in last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final, Spurs winger Gareth Bale will be looking to get his side’s season back on track. The Welshman can be backed at 3.00 to find the net.

9. Djibril Cisse is once again available for QPR after serving a four-match ban. The Frenchman is available 8.00 to bag the first goal on his return on Saturday.

10. It is likely that QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt will want to show Spurs why they shouldn’t have let him leave the club permanently back in the summer of 2010. The Moroccan is available at 4.60 to score against his former club.
