Fulham midfielder rebuilding his career at Craven Cottage, and O'Hara holds outstanding best anytime odds of 11/2 with bet365 against struggling Rovers.
Jamie O’Hara has gradually started to rebuild his football career at Fulham, and his latest opponents Blackburn Rovers are one of the clubs that has helped him rediscover his scoring touch.
He has very decent odds of 11/2 with bet365 to net anytime against a club that he has scored two in his last four matches against, with Fulham 6/4 with same bookmaker to win the match.
O’Hara took his future into his own hands when his short-term contract at Blackpool expired at the end of last season and desperate not to go through a second pre-season without a club, called Fulham boss Kit Symons.
“I got hold of Kit’s (Symons) phone number and I gave him a call,’ O’Hara revealed. “I played against Fulham last season and did really well and I told him that if I was in his team then they would have won the game 4-0 instead of 1-0. I said to him ‘whatever you need and whatever you want from me, I will do’.”
If this wasn’t enough to convince you that he is worth betting on, you can see from the following that his commitment cannot be called into question, after the player cancelled a week-long holiday in Dubai to prove how much he wanted to play.
“I was meant to be going out to Dubai on holiday and just relax for a week,” O’Hara continued. “But Kit called me back and I had a sort of job interview over the phone.
“I was able to get across how much I wanted to be involved with the club, he invited me to go in the following week so I cancelled the holiday and jumped at the opportunity.
“It took a bit of time to get it over the line, but I made sure I was in everyday and I think that keenness paid off for me in the end and they offered me a contract.”
O’Hara has also started the season superbly, giving everything for the cause, and contributing one fantastic assist, as well as being unlucky not to score himself on multiple occasions.
For the visitors, Jordan Rhodes is 5/1 with Sky Bet to score first, while Fulham duo, Ross McCormack and Cauley Woodrow, who have both been prolific so far this campaign, are 5/1 and 6/1 to open the scoring respectively with Coral.
