QPR and Aston Villa, the two lowest scoring sides in the Premier League, meet at Loftus Road this evening in a game that spells G-O-A-L-S.
Punters anticipating a landslide in west London can err on the overs side of the 2.5-goal line and trouser a 23/20 payday if successful.
Blowing opposition defences away is a pastime neither outfit tend to partake in, but there’s plenty of cause to wager on the net rustling at least three times, if not more, tonight.
Behold, your array of arm-twisters:
Only one of the five Premier League fixtures to be contested on a Monday this season has failed to cross the line in question.
Aside from Stoke’s 1-0 win over Newcastle, every top-tier game to take place on the first day of the week has soared past the post required to pocket a profit.
This is also true of four of the previous five Monday fixtures in which QPR have done battle, as well as the last three to involve Aston Villa.
The pair has partaken in plenty of over 2.5-goal games of late.
Paul Lambert’s side haven’t scored in four successive matches, but each was against a top-five finisher from the campaign prior.
Despite not contributing to the scoring, three of this porous quartet saw at least a trio of goals plundered.
Rangers have just one clean sheet all season so the Villans will fancy their chances of ending the famine here.
Four of their most recent five fixtures have ended in despair, with as many crossing the 2.5-goal line.
This match will mark the return of Belgian goal-machine Christian Benteke.
Having been afforded two appearances to regain match fitness in 2014/15, this match, to the delirium of Villans the world over, will mark the real return of the Beast.
His last three Monday night matches have yielded four goals and he can backed at 5/1 to notch first here.
