– Norwich will travel to the Hawthorns looking to continue a fine run which has seen them lose just one of the last seven. Few teams have been as poor as the Baggies at home this season – they’ve taken just 8 points out of a possible 30 whilst Norwich in contrast boast a record of scoring in all bar one away game this season There is no reason to think that the Canaries can’t sing once more this weekend, and at 11/4 with Ladbrokes we’re happy to back an away win.
– Harry Redknapp may have blasted Man City for spending too much money (although how he would have signed Adebayor if they hadn’t has yet to be explained,) but to be fair, Spurs are playing the best football in the Premier League right now and we’d be surprised if Wolves are able to contain them. With that in mind it’s really a case of how many and we’ll recommend the 3-0 at 9.8 on Betfair.
– Martin O’Neill has really got Sunderland going, taking 10 points from the last 12 on offer, and they will fancy their chances against a Chelsea team that is still to find any consistency this season. The Blues at 2/7 fills us with absolutely no confidence so our tip is to back Sunderland to nick at least a point. The best bet is with bet365, backing the Black Cats at +0.5 on the handicap at 2/1.
– Aston Villa will be looking to end a run of four consecutive home defeats, against an Everton side that has failed to score more than once in any of their last eight games. These two have fought out draws in five of their last six meetings and we think it will be another stalemate. We like the look of the 1-1 draw at 7.2 on Betfair, and more generally the draw at 9/4 with Ladbrokes.
