Match Betting (1x2)

Norwich City won the EFL Championship last season by accruing 94 points and they managed to score 93 goals on their way to landing the title.

The East Anglian side also conceded 57 goals en route to landing promotion, with that porous defence strongly in evidence at Anfield last weekend when losing 4-1 to Liverpool, although they’re still strong favourites to land victory against Newcastle.

The best odds about Daniel Farke’s side are 13/10 with Paddy Power, with Norwich having won fifteen of their twenty-three matches at Carrow Road last term.

As for Newcastle, they were narrowly beaten at home to Arsenal last weekend and Ladbrokes have 23/10 that Steve Bruce’s side get up and running with a win to appease the Toon Army.

First Goalscorer

Look no further than Teemu Pukki, with the Finnish striker having scored at Anfield after looking lively throughout against one of the toughest defences in Europe.

Bet365 could be taking a chance with the 5/1 about Pukki scoring the opening goal considering that other firms trade much shorter at 3/1, while the former bookmaker also have unlimited places when it comes to each-way betting on this market.

Emiliano Buendia is around the 9/1 mark and the Argentine is a dangerous playmaker although he might be more likely to provide the assists.

As for Newcastle, Joelinton is available at 8/1 and the Brazilian was a £40 million signing during the summer.

Both Teams to Score

This is clearly a match which both sides will feel that they can win. Newcastle lose their opener at home to Arsenal and Steve Bruce won’t want to have zero points from two games, leaving him with an uphill struggle already.

Similarly, Norwich will adopt their usual attacking tactics and some of last season’s matches at Carrow Road were particularly high-scoring, with Both Teams to Score trading at odds of 3/4 for this one.

If you think at least one team will fail to find the net, then you can get evens about “No” on the BTTS market.

Over / Under Goals

We’re expecting Norwich to be very attack-minded in this game and it’s worth noting that 85 goals were scored in 23 home matches last term, averaging 3.70 goals per match at Carrow Road.

Teemu Pukki plundered 29 of the goals for the home side and William Hill have even money that we see the net bulge at least three times although a braver punter might go for Over 3.5 Goals at 27/10 considering some of the big scorelines we saw in Norwich home matches last term.

Alternatively, Bruce might consider this a match where a goalless draw will offer a platform for his team to build upon and the Magpies did defend well against the Gunners apart from one defensive lapse which led to the goal.

Under 2.5 Goals is 10/11 with bet365 and that means two or less goals being scored throughout the match will mean a pay out.

Correct Score

Norwich’s first home match last season saw them lose 3-4 against West Brom. Later, they had a 4-3 victory over Millwall where the Canaries scored two late goals to win the game.

Betfair offer 175/1 about a 4-3 win in their favour on Saturday, while a more modest 3-2 victory can be backed at 40/1 with bet365 and it appears that manager Daniel Farke doesn’t want to compromise on his attacking principles.

A more modest 2-1 win is priced up at 17/2 with bet365, while Newcastle are 11/1 with the same firm to escape with a 1-0 win.
