Top 4 Betting Tips for Norwich v West Brom

Top 4 Betting Tips for Norwich v West Brom

Fifth place West Brom are ready to take up eleventh place Norwich City in a Saturday afternoon clash on the 20th of January.

West Bromwich Albion will be the visitors to Carrow Road for this 3pm GMT kick-off, just three weeks after the sides last met.

West Brom are looking to make it a double over the Canaries to boost their chances of confirming a place in the playoffs for promotion to the Premier League.

Norwich might be at the 11th place in the table but they are only 4 points away from 6th placed Hull City. What that means for the game is that it is going to be a fierce matchup as the Baggies are looking to extend the gap to the 6th place by more than 3 points.

On Boxing Day when the two teams met previously, although Thomas-Asante was the goal-scorer, the majority of West Brom’s positive play came through the feet of John Swift.

Playing just behind the striker, Swift tested Angus Gunn on numerous occasions in the first half, as well as finding the post with a volley.

With his six goals for the team already he seems a likely goal-scorer for the game. Betting on the player to score might be the slight risk that might get you a hefty payback.

West Brom are 16th on the table if their away form is to be considered. They have managed to score 16 while conceding 14 goals. On the other hand, Norwich have a decent home form but still in the scoring sense they have similar stats; for-19, against-14.

These stats point toward a draw outcome with a scoreline of 1-1. Having good odds on this outcome, it is a good place to put your bet on. Continuing the thought, another exciting prospect could be under 2.5 away goals also looks like an easy choice to make.

While defending at home, The Canaries have made sure not to give away too many corners (4.38 average). While in the attacking sense, they average above 6 (6.31) corners per match at home.

West Brom away have an average of getting around 5.62 corners while conceding 4 corners, per match. This clean defensive mindset of both the teams sets up for a juicy grab for placing a bet on under 10 corners in the game.

The absolute difference in stats can be seen in the area of opposition box. West Brom like to stay in the attacking mindset and have the capable players. In the last meeting, the Baggies had 53 touches in the opposition box while the Canaries could only muster 8. This makes for a possession or opposition box touches, an interesting angle to consider.
