Norwich vs Spurs - betting preview with Betfred
22 February 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs kept up the pressure on the top four with a fine win over Newcastle in their last Premier League outing and they will look to maintain their impressive away form at Carrow Road.
Spurs have taken 28 points from a possible 30 this season away to teams currently below the top six. Norwich, meanwhile, have won only one of their last 11 matches and are now just one point above the relegation zone.
Norwich’s best chance of success is probably to keep things tight and look to replicate Hull’s point against Spurs a few weeks ago.
Their last six home matches have featured just seven goals and they were all level at half-time. Spurs have a superb second-half record but have often been slow starters and nine of their last 15 trips to bottom-half teams have been all-square after 45 minutes before a second-half record of W12-D3-L0. The half-time draw is an appealing price at 11/10 but we expect Spurs to win so the Draw/Spurs double on the half-time/full-time market looks a great price at 4/1.
‘Unders’ is the favourite in the 2.5 Goals market which is no surprise given Norwich’s record. In contrast, Spurs’ away matches have featured plenty of goals with seven of the last eight seeing at least three strikes. However, four of their six trips to the current bottom-half teams this season have had fewer than three goals as have 11 of Norwich’s 16 home games against top-half sides since the start of last season. As such Under 2.5 Goals looks a decent price at 4/5.
Emmanuel Adebayor has scored seven goals in his last five away matches in the league, failing to score only once and netting first on three occasions. At 11/8 to score he looks good value to continue his hot streak this weekend.
