Arsenal v Norwich: Expect high-scoring Gunners success

| 01.04.2013

A run of six victories in their past seven league games has put Arsenal well back into top-four contention, and they can record another success at home to Norwich at 1/4.

But with little value to be found in simply backing the Gunners to chalk up a fourth consecutive league triumph, total result markets seem more worthy of investment.

And backing a home victory which features in excess of 3.5 goals at 7/5 appears the way to go, given that such a bet would have paid dividends in half of the past six meetings between this pair.

As Arsene Wenger’s men have notched at least four times in three of the past six clashes between the sides too, they look worth focusing on in Ladbrokes’ goal crazy markets.

9/4 is the price that the Gunners strike on four or more occasions, a feat they have achieved an impressive six times already this term.

And as both teams have found the net in five of the last six encounters between the two also, investment in the 9/5 odds that each defence is breached in an Arsenal win seems wise too.

Meanwhile, half markets could too prove a fruitful avenue for punters to explore, considering Wenger’s charges have been in front at the break in three of their past four victories.

It is 8/15 that the Gunners turn a half-time lead into a full-time triumph, whilst it should also be noted that a majority 37 of their 61 league strikes this campaign have come after the half-time whistle.

Therefore, 23/20 looks a very fair price that the hosts notch more times in the second half than they do in the opening period.

Betting on the source of Arsenal’s goals could prove profitable also, with 12-goal Santi Cazorla looking a viable first scorer option at 5/1.

Arsenal’s 18-strike top scorer Theo Walcott could return to action in this match too though, and as he is likely to start from the bench, seems easiest to back to close the scoring at 4/1.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
