Fiery Derby Anticipated in West London: The Odds

Chelsea are 1.83 with bet365 to beat QPR at Loftus Road this weekend in what promises to be a real hard fought and fiery encounter.
The Blues had two players sent off in their last visit, and their opponents ended last season with more red cards (9) than any other team in the top flight.
There is also very little to choose between the two sides if history is anything to go by.
Cheslea have beaten QPR 1-0 three times in their last six games, but have worryingly won just two of their last 10 Premier League games on the road (w4, D4).
However the last time they met Chelsea managed to put six past them, and they come into this top of the table after three successive victories.
That suggests that they should be able to beat the big spending R’s who have managed just one point so far and got thumped 5-0 by Swansea on the opening day and beaten 3-1 by Man City when last seen in action.
Eden Hazard already has four goal assists this season and won two penalties, and is likely to play yet another key role.
He is an 8.5 chance with bet365 to get the opener, with Fernando Torres heading the market at 5.5 with Paddy Power.
However I like the look of penalty taker Frank Lampard, who is also always dangerous in open play and can be backed at a tasty looking 8.5 with bet365 and Paddy Power to break the deadlock.
I think that an on-song Chelsea are capable of taking care of Mark Hughes’ men and winning this with a bit to spare –  especially as the Welsh manager ahs a poor record against his former club.
He has only coached two teams to victory in 14 attempts in the Premier League against Chelsea (W2 D2 L10), and I fancy the Blues to win 2-1 or 3-1.
Those scorelines can be backed at a 8.5 and 15 with bet365.
