Brentford v Norwich betting tips: Farke flops hope to end drought

Brentford v Norwich betting tips and odds

Winless Norwich prop up the table with two points after 10 games and are 5/1 underdogs to beat Brentford on Saturday afternoon.

Daniel Farke is now second favourite behind Aston Villa’s Dean Smith to become the next Premier League managerial casualty following last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat by Leeds.

The Bees have lost their last three games, but are 8/13 favourites to win this weekend as we look at some of the markets in our Brentford v Norwich betting tips.

Match Odds

The Canaries were handed a tough start to the season by the fixture compiler, but the start of a five-match run of winnable games ended in defeat last weekend and they are 1/12 to make an immediate return to the Championship.

Brentford made a bright start to the season but losses to Chelsea, Leicester and Burnley have seen them slip into the bottom half of the table.

Thomas Frank said after the 3-1 defeat at Turf Moor that his side had played two bad halves in 20 in their first season in the Premier League, “the second against West Ham and this first half”, so perhaps we should not think the bubble has burst with the Bees.

Eight of Brentford’s matches have involved three goals or fewer and they are 23/20 to win that way or can be backed at 29/20 to win to nil bearing in mind the Canaries have scored a paltry three goals this season.

The last two encounters have finished 1-1 in this fixture, both of which took place in the Championship in the last three seasons, so we make a draw 27/10, a share of the spoils and goals at both ends 21/5 and the same scoreline 6/1 in our Brentford v Norwich betting tips.

Under 2.5 goals would have paid out in the last five matches involving these sides and a sixth is priced at 7/10, while the hosts are available at 21/10 to be leading after half an hour for a seventh time this season.

Talking Tactics

Frank will stick with a 3-5-2 formation despite Saturday’s loss in Lancashire where Marcus Forss started his first Premier League game in attack alongside Ivan Toney, with Bryan Mbeuno never leaving the bench.

Alvaro Fernandez will continue in goal in the absence of the influential David Raya and defender Kristoffer Ajer is expected to be out with a hamstring injury he sustained in the Carabao Cup win at Stoke.

Farke started with three at the back for the 7-0 drubbing at Chelsea but went with a four-man defence in a 4-4-2 against Marcelo Bielsa’s side last Sunday.

Norwich showed encouraging signs against Leeds during which they had three shots on target from a total of 14, but they need to start taking the few chances they produce.

Goalscorer Odds

Toney leads the first goalscorer market at 14/5 or we go 21/20 on the Bees striker finding the net, something he has done just twice this season.

Mbeumo may be recalled and is 7/5 to add to his tally of two goals, while Forss is available at the same odds in Saturday’s Brentford v Norwich betting tips.

Teemu Pukki has scored all of City’s goals this season and is 7/1 to break the deadlock or 14/5 to find the net any time.
