Norwich form makes draw no bet the way forward at West Brom

| 22.12.2012

Norwich have turned a major corner since the October international break by going unbeaten in all 10 Premier League outings and this run makes them big value to leave West Brom with the three points.

Only Manchester United can brag about having accrued more points than Norwich in this period and 11/4 does look a price worth taking that they win this.

After all, the Baggies have gone four games without a win and failed to even score in each of their last three.

Furthermore, this is a fixture that has favoured an away win in recent meetings, with the last four seeing the visitors leave with three points.

The one dilemma is that as good as Norwich have been in the last two months, they have only won once on the road, drawing the other four.

It is 23/10 that they draw again here, but preference is for the 7/4 available on the Norwich success in the draw no bet market, which means that if the fixture ends all square, the original stake will be refunded.

Although the Baggies have home advantage, 1/1 does look a tad short for a team on the slide of late.

Another potentially profitable bet is the 5/6 that under 2.5 goals are scored in total at the Hawthorns.

Six of Norwich’s nine away games this season have come in under this line, alongside five of West Brom’s nine home fixtures.

At risk of stating the obvious, the first goal will be especially important here, with Steve Clarke’s men only managing to recover a single point from a losing position all season.

Fortunately, no Premier League club has opened the scoring in more games than them in the campaign and it is 13/20 that West Brom break the deadlock here.

Alternatively, it is 5/1 that Norwich come from behind in the game to secure either a win or a draw.
