Our betting partners Sportingbet take a look at the markets available for Saturday's match at QPR.

Sportingbet preview - QPR

Spurs are 9/10 favourites to win their fourth London derby of the season in the late kick-off against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday and there’s plenty of money to be made backing Tottenham’s forward line this weekend.

After netting two goals in the reverse fixture and blitzing QPR’s goal throughout, Sportingbet are 3/1 that Gareth Bale scores more than ex-Spurs winger Adel Tarabt at Loftus Road.

Jermain Defoe is also 3/1 to outscore Djibril Cisse and Emmanuel Adebayor can be backed to score more than another ex-Spurs forward, Bobby Zamora, at 9/4.

With only one loss on the road in London this season, Spurs will be looking for maximum points whilst hoping to boost the goal difference in the all-important race for third. And with goals expected, both teams to score is on offer at 3/5, one team to score is 13/10 and over 2.5 goals is a well-priced EVS.

In the first goal markets Sportingbet make Emmanuel Adebayor the favourite at 21/5, with Louis Saha 9/2, Jermain Defoe 5/1 and Gareth Bale 6/1. For bigger profits though, Kyle Walker can be backed at 28/1 to net first while Benoit Assou-Ekotto can be backed at 33/1.

Spurs fans who open a Sportingbet account can qualify for a risk free first bet of up to £50, meaning if your first bet loses Sportingbet will refund it as a free bet!

So with a no lose bet why not go for a huge bet in the correct score markets with a repeat of Bale scoring first in a 3-1 a whopping huge 66/1. Or for an even bigger payday, how about £50 on Modric to score first in a 2-1 for a mega payout of £4,000?!

Finally take a look at two extra special markets given the unfortunate plight of both teams at the hands of referees this season. Spurs to concede a ‘phantom goal’ is 33/1 and either side to concede a phantom goal is 40/1.

Odds correct at time of writing...
