Having been handed defeats by two of the league’s bigger fish during the midweek festivities, West Brom and Norwich will surely be happy to see each other once the normality of top-flight Saturday action returns.
There hasn’t been a draw between the two sides for ten straight meetings, so the chance for either side to collect three much-needed points is a distinct possibility if the trend of their recent history is to be continued.
It also means backing the 5/2 for a share of the spoils should be swerved, with the 5/6 on a Baggies home win or 10/3 on a visiting Norwich triumph more profitable match betting destinations.
That Steve Clarke’s side are odds-on shots to take the points is understandable considering Norwich have failed to win 25 of their last 28 Premier League away games. However, with West Brom in patchy form of their own, winning just one of the last six matches, taking such a short price on such an out-of-form side may not attract.
Punters who believe the midlands club will prevail, something that’s been the case in five of the last seven league meetings, would perhaps be better financially served to have a gander at the half-time/full-time market.
Norwich have been losing six of their last seven away games in the top-flight at both the interval and the final whistle, and the 13/8 on West Brom inflicting that misery on the Canaries for a seventh time is extremely desirable.
If there can be any positives for Chris Hughton’s side ahead of this trip, then one surely lies around the fact that they’ve triumphed twice in the last three occasions they’ve made it.
Both of those games ended 2-1 to his side and Ladbrokes customers can secure odds of 14/1 on history repeating itself.
