Premier League betting - QPR-Bolton

Rangers could be a positive surprise this season. Nice list of players and old fox Neil Warnock in charge. They have brought DJ Campbell, Jay Bothroyd, Kieron Dyer and Danny Gabbidon. They’ve also kept their superstar, Adel Taarabt. Should be enough, at least to avoid relegation. QPR have lost only one of their last 12 opening-day matches.

I am not sure what to think about Bolton’s ambitions this season. They should keep the status, but cannot see they have what they need for a top-half of the table. They lost Daniel Sturridge (back to Chelsea), brought Tuncay (won’t play as he hasn’t been granted a work permit), Nigel Reo-Coker and Chris Eagles. In my opinion, last two were big talents and all three are only average players now. Owen Coyle is very good manager and probably The Trotters’ biggest quality. However, his teams (Bolton and Burnley) have very good record at home and horrible on the road. In previous season, Bolton won just twice of 19 away games (5 draws), season before that 4W-3D-12L, in Burnley it was even worse.

For every newcomer, first game is the most important. The biggest enthusiasm and so. Bolton seems to be very good rival for the opening game and good start.
