Football betting: Goals look a good bet at Leeds v QPR

Any United fan that made the trip to Turf Moor at the weekend will have been witness to one of the games of the season so far as Leeds rallied from behind to take all three points.

Burnley started brightly and held a 2-0 lead heading into the break.

Simon Grayson must have said something special in the changing room as United scored three unanswered goals, the winner coming in the 85th minute from Luciano Becchio.

The victory also landed us a healthy profit after we suggested buying (betting higher) United's win index at 8 with Sporting Index and total goals at 2.6.

Grayson will be keen to build on the win at Burnley when facing the league leaders QPR at Elland Road tomorrow.

QPR slipped up at Loftus Road against Watford last Friday when they

were convincingly beaten 3-1.

That was Neil Warnock's side's first defeat of the season and he will be keen to prove it was just a blip and not the start of something more serious. Even with the loss, QPR are four points clear at the top with a game in hand and have been very impressive on their travels.

Four wins and five draws from their nine away league fixtures is a healthy return and underlines the tough task that faces United.

Both matches finished all square in the corresponding fixtures last year and this one is too close to call on the win index.

United have scored 19 goals at Elland Road, but have conceded 20 which suggests this game should produce plenty of goal-mouth action.

The defence will need to be on top of their game if they're to keep Adel Taarabt and co quiet for 90 minutes.

Punters should look to buy (bet higher) total goals at 2.5 with Sporting Index.

Luciano Becchio has grabbed three in his last two matches, so he is worth keeping a close eye on in what should be an exciting contest.

Elsewhere, there was some fantastic racing action at Cheltenham last weekend, but the cold weather is back and it will be touch and go whether Ascot goes ahead tomorrow.

Big Buck's lines up in the Long Walk Hurdle and he is simply impossible to oppose and will surely go on to win a third World Hurdle at Cheltenham in March.

The big betting race is the Ladbroke and Nicky Henderson's Aegean Dawn is the 9/2 favourite with Boylesports.

He has been very impressive in his two wins this season, but has climbed dramatically in the handicap and that could find him out.

His stablemate Oscar Whisky has only suffered one defeat in his career, a decent fourth to Menorah in this year's Supreme Novices' Hurdle, but a bigger danger could be Alan King's Mille Chief.

He is over a stone better off for a four-and-a-half length defeat by Aegean Dawn last time and is reportedly working very well at home.

At 7/1 on Betdaq he looks a decent bet.
