Manchester City vs QPR Soccer Pick: Keep the Profit Alive with Aguero to Score First

Sergio Aguero has been making money for Lee Phelps for a month now, so will he keep the faith in Manchester City's game against QPR? here are his thoughts on the odds and his free soccer pick.

This is second versus second bottom and I can only see it going one way as QPR contemplate Championship life. They ate 1/100 to be relegated from the premier league and I can see that being confirmed at the Etihad stadium.

 

Manchester City
Manchester City have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League home games (W11 D3 L1) and are unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions against QPR (W4 D2), but have drawn the last two.

Admittedly the City performances have been far from convincing recently but they are improving and should have very little standing in the way of them and three points.

My mantra over the last month has been that I won’t back City at soccer odds on prices, but will focus all my money on Sergio Aguero. He has scored first in each of the last three games and I’m looking at him being the key man again here. Aguero has scored three goals in four league games against QPR, including probably his most famous goal of all on the final day of the 2011-12 season.

One stat to bear in mind if you like to bet in-play, Manuel Pellegrini’s substitutes have contributed towards 17 goals (nine goals, eight assists) this season; more than any other teams’ replacements.

 

QPR
Rangers are seven points adrift of safety, with an inferior goal difference, so really it is eight points and with only nine to play for they are doomed.

Despite that Clint Hill insists QPR won’t throw in the towel in their battle against the drop. “You have to believe you can stay up – if you don’t, you are knackered - it’s not worth turning up,” said the 36-year-old told www.mirror.co.uk. “You’ve still got to be professional and keep going and believe things will turn in your favour.

“The year we went down the mood wasn’t great, which has been well-documented. The dressing room wasn’t right, but the lads here are trying their best.

“The core of the squad is from last year and we know how much it means to everyone.”

Errors will be what costs QPR this season and in this games, with Rob Green responsible for more mistake leading to goals than any other keeper.

Sorry to be boring but it’s all about Aguero for me again this week. You can add him as your soccer pick to score at any time (1.44), first (3.5), two or more (2.9), a hat-trick (8.5) or my favourite to score first in a City win at 3.8 (14/5).
