West Ham v QPR Odds: Loic Remy is a tempting bet to score on his debut

Queens Park Rangers will look to maintain their recent resurgent form when they travel across London to take on West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday afternoon. The Premier League basement side have been much-improved under Harry Redknapp lately and they will look to new signing Loic Remy to make an instant impact if he makes his debut this weekend.

Redknapp's side will have to upset the odds if they are to take three points on Saturday though as they head into the match as a tempting 13/5 punt with Betfred. West Ham go in as even-money favourites and the draw can be backed at 9/4, although a QPR win could be the value bet as they look to build on some impressive recent performances.

They are unbeaten in their last four ahead of their trip to Upton Park and it is a run of form that has seen them win 1-0 at Chelsea, draw 1-1 with West Brom in the FA Cup before winning the replay 1-0 at the Hawthorns, while they have also drawn 0-0 with the in-form Tottenham at Loftus Road.

That run of form has seen them move to within five points of safety and with other teams dropping like stones above them they could give their survival chances a real boost this weekend. They have tightened up in impressive fashion defensively as they have conceded just one goal in four but it might be worth a look at both teams to score in this West Ham v QPR fixture this weekend.

Both teams to score can be backed at a best price 4/5 with Fred and that is the way West Ham's last six home games have gone. The Hammers have scored at least one goal in 92% of their matches at Upton Park, although they have kept just one clean sheet in their last 12 home and away in all competitions and QPR's Loic Remy will be looking to take full advantage.

The French striker found himself at out of favour at Marseille but he made an £8m move to Loftus Road earlier this week and could be in line for a debut on Saturday. Remy was one of the hottest properties in France a couple of seasons ago and he is a best price 7/1 with Fred to make an immediate impact by scoring the first goal against West Ham.

In contrast to QPR, West Ham have suffered a poor run of form of late as they have won two of their last 12 in all competitions, including just one of their last four at home. They may be 11th in the league table but they will be glancing nervously over their shoulders as they sit just seven points above the relegation zone.

In fairness to Sam Allardyce's side they have been beset by injuries and the return of Mo Diame to full fitness is very welcome. Andy Carroll could also be fit for Saturday and he is 6/1 to score first, although Carlton Cole (6/1) might be preferred after he performed admirably in the 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Manchester United on Wednesday.
