Stoke v Norwich: hosts to continue home trend with narrow win

| 26.04.2013

This clash brings together two sides who are yet to confirm their Premier League status and sit precariously outside the relegation zone.

Both of these clubs have struggled in front of goal with the hosts registering a paltry six goals in their last ten clashes. Only QPR and Stoke have scored fewer than Norwich’s 33 strikes this term, making the 15/8 price on their being under 1.5 goals and the 3/5 about their being under 2.5 goals tempting propositions.

Recent meetings between the pair have seen the 1-0 scoreline reign supreme, with four of their last six encounters resulting in a 1-0 success for the victor, including the match at Carrow Road back in November.

The hosts are available at 11/2 to emerge with the three points thanks to a 1-0 result,while their visitors from East Anglia are 8/1 to achieve the same feat.

This fixture is one that historically sees the home side take the spoils with an away triumph coming just once in the preceding 16.

The Potters are 21/20 to continue that trend.

However, given the duo’s abilities to insight boredom across the footballing world with their lack of goals and penetration, this match-up presents an opportunity for punters to take advantage of the total result market.

Tony Pulis’ charges are 31/10 to score the win with under 2.5 goals being notched over the 90 minutes.

Those with yellow blood running through their veins anticipating just a second Premier League away win this term for City can back Norwich to prevail with less than 2.5 goals at a massive 11/2.

The draw will appeal here given the close proximity of the two clubs and Norwich’s run of six stalemates in their 11 prior to this. A share of the spoils and fewer than 2.5 strikes tempts at 5/2.

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