Xmas starts early with a QPR, Celtic and Liverpool 2/1 enhanced TV treble
Coral are up with the lark as far as offers on the early televised matches are concerned, spicing up the lunchtime servings on Sky Sports and BT Sport by bolstering the value of a treble on wins for QPR, Celtic and Liverpool to a healthy 2/1.
The London side look to have been served up the toughest task in this lunchtime special in the shape of Leicester, who sit three points behind the Championship leaders in third-place.
However they host the Foxes at what could be an opportune moment as it’s now four matches since last the sweet smell of success wafted across the visitors’ nostrils.
The R’s have a home rearguard that would make Ebeneezer Scrooge blush, having been breached just twice at Loftus Road in Championship battle all campaign.
Leicester put in a shift in going down fighting to Manchester City on Tuesday and all the while Harry Redknapp’s men have been resting up and lying in wait, pondering a ninth home win in 11 attempts.
Meanwhile, after a relatively austere start to Premier League proceedings, Anfield has been in state of near constant fiesta since Luis Suarez returned to the fold with the bit between his gnashers.
Liverpool have struck thrice or more in each of the five home games since the Uruguayan’s return and internal strife-riven Cardiff are next into the mincer.
The Bluebirds are as goal-shy on their travels as their hosts are prolific on home turf, having drawn blanks in their last four on the road, suggesting even if Suarez has an off day the Anfield side should be able to creep over the line.
North of the border Celtic find themselves confronted once again with rivals they destroyed by seven goals to nil at Easter Road in a Scottish Cup tie four games back.
The Bhoys have shipped more than once in a mere one of their last 10 home outings (and that to Champions League blue-bloods AC Milan).
Against a side that have avoided defeat in only two of their eight league away games so far they should be able to surpass the 1-0 beating they handed Hearts’ Edinburgh rivals last time out.
