SOUTHAMPTON were one of the magnificent 9 winning football tips from VG TIPS this past weekend. The odds on the Saints when selected were 16-5 with BetFred. And there may well be more winning football bets this weekend.
I suggested members take the risk and get on the Saints to win at QPR. My thinking was that, while Southampton have been leaking goals, they do score goals. That, coupled with the fact that QPR look woeful, made me believe this was an away win in the making.
Southampton beat QPR 3-1 at Loftus Road so ensuring Rangers are without a win and prop up the Premier League.
The future of manager Mark Hughes hangs in the balance as wealthy Chairman Tony Fernandes must make a decision.
Does he sack the man he employed and employ the available Harry Redknapp?
I am a supporter of Mark Hughes but I think it is over for him in West London. The players are poor and are clearly not giving everything for the manager. And if they are, well then they are even worse than I thought.
For a rich man, I know the QPR Chairman to be a very nice man. But it is November. To have any hope of QPR staying up he must make a change now and open the cheque book as often as Harry Redknapp wants.
It’s the only hope for QPR.
The Southampton victory represented just one of the winning football tips over the weekend.
The others included wins for Rochdale at 23-20, Crystal Palace at 21-20, Watford at 13-10, Blackburn at 24-19, Millwall at 21-20, Gillingham at 8-13, Bournemouth at 8-11 and, in La Liga, Atletico Madrid at 4-5.
I also suggested members consider betting on there being a red card in the game between Millwall and Leeds. There was. Luke Varney was sent off for Leeds.
