QPR vs Special Market by Jamesington
At the time of writing the Premier League bottom two looks like this:
Goals For Goal Difference Points
19 - QPR 29 -27 25
20 - Reading 37 -28 25
Having both played 35 matches, with 3 games left, one of these two sides is incredibly likely to finish bottom of the league (so much so, that nearly all bookmakers are only offering odds on these two).
QPR and Reading are on the same number of points and have a very similar goal difference, the only real major difference at present is in 'Goals For' where Reading have an 8 goal advantage over QPR - a statistic which would become the deciding factor if the two clubs were to finish with the same number of points and the same goal difference.
To decide who will come bottom we must take a look at the remaining fixtures:
QPR - Arsenal (H), Newcastle (H), Liverpool (A)
Reading - Fulham (A), Man City (H), West Ham (A)
In my opinion QPR are unlikely to pick up another point this season. They face 3 tough matches against clubs who all have something important to play for and their motivation must be limited with many of the club's high earners on the way out in the summer.
On the other hand, Reading have a relatively decent chance of picking up 1 or 2 points (perhaps even more) and they are playing against sides who's season's work is all but done, Man City would appear safe in 2nd place whilst the other two clubs are likely to have a high mid-table finish. In addition to this, Reading have new manager Nigel Adkins to impress (the manager will also be keen to get the best out of his new charges) and it seems unlikely there will be a mass exodus from the Madejski side's squad this summer.
*The odds on this market are likely to change after each round of matches, starting with the fixtures on 4th May, so get in quickly to snap up the value on QPR.
