Our resident betting expert is predicting a slow Chelsea start and a 0-0 score-line at half-time, before Torres helps the Blues to a London derby victory.
Meanwhile at White Hart Lane, our man-in-the-know is backing plenty of goals in what should be a Tottenham win over relegation candidates Blackburn Rovers.
Torres declared that his dramatic strike against Barcelona in the Champions League will turn around his Chelsea career – and the Tipster reckons he could be right. The Spanish striker has eight goals in all competitions this season, and fresh from his equaliser at Camp Nou on Tuesday night, 11/10 for him to score against QPR is a very tempting bet.
The Blues’ midweek exploits will have an effect when it comes to this feisty London derby on Sunday. Remarkably, Chelsea have been drawing 0-0 at half-time in seven of their last nine league games – Roberto Di Matteo’s side are slow starters. Therefore, Chelsea and QPR to be scoreless at the interval is a value bet at 12/5.
Despite their relegation concerns, Steve Kean’s Blackburn side have still managed to score in 14 of their 17 away games this season, including a 3-2 victory at Old Trafford. Tottenham’s defence continues to cope with a growing injury list, so the Tipster believes both sides to score is a good bet at 8/11.
Tottenham looked certain to finish in the top three at one stage this season, but a dire run of form has seen Harry Redknapp’s side drop to fifth place. Spurs have beaten Blackburn by two goals in their last two meetings, and the Tipster is backing the Londoners to win by that margin again on Sunday at 3/1.
Chelsea captain John Terry is at the centre of another controversy as he faces Anton Ferdinand ahead of his court case on 5 July for allegedly racially abusing the QPR defender. Never one to shy away from the spot-light, the Tipster is backing Terry to score against QPR at any time at 4/1.
