Norwich v Swansea: Hosts to crucially prevail in goalfest

| 05.04.2013

Norwich welcome Swansea to Carrow Road, with Chris Hughton’s side’s need for 6/4 victory far more pressing than that of their 9/5 visitors.

And considering that the Canaries have beaten the Swans in four of the past five meetings between the pair, including the last three, they look to have a great chance of attaining it.

Both teams did manage to find the net in each of Norwich’s past three victories over the Welsh outfit however, and so added value can be found in betting on each team scoring in company with the match result.

It is 19/5 that either defence is breached in a home triumph, whilst 7/10 odds are attributed simply to the possibility of each team notching.

And with four goals the lowest total to stem from any of the three Premier League contests between this pair, utilising total result markets also appears wise.

3/1 is the price that Hughton’s charges emerge victorious from a match involving at least 2.5 goals, and it should be noted that at least three strikes have been registered in over half of their wins so far this term.

With Norwich bagging on at least three occasions the last three times they have met out-of-form Swansea too, simply betting on the number of goals the hosts score may prove profitable.

The Canaries are a big 17/4 to strike at least 2.5 times, which tempts in light of Norwich scoring at least three in four matches this season, three of which have come at Carrow Road.

The sole time Hughton’s men did hit four on the road this term was when they visited Swansea meanwhile, seemingly further cementing the credentials of this bet.

And it may be worth choosing a first scorer selection in this game, with Grant Holt an obvious 11/2 pick for the hosts, after striking three times in his last two appearances opposing the Jacks.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
