Home advantage for Norwich should give them the edge against Swansea on Saturday, although expect a tough battle between two evenly-matched teams.
The two newly-promoted clubs have identical records going into the fixture, with two wins, two draws and three defeats from their seven matches.
However, the fact that all of Swansea’s points have been earned at the Liberty Stadium and that their away record consists of played three, lost three suggests Norwich are at a distinct advantage given the match is being played at Carrow Road.
Add in Norwich’s run of just one defeat in their last 15 home matches and odds on a draw (23/10) and Swansea win (23/10) look considerably less appealing.
However, while Norwich are in pole position to take all three points, the Swans are unlikely to go down without a fight.
They might have scored just once and conceded nine in their three away matches to date, but given they were up against Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea it would be foolish to read too much into this form.
And while it is true that the play-off winners had an indifferent time of it away from home in the Championship last season – at least when compared to their results at the Liberty Stadium – three wins in their last four matches against the Canaries will give Swans boss Brendan Rodgers confidence going into the fixture.
As such, any Norwich win is likely to be hard earned, making any side to win by a single goal a good bet at odds of 5/4.
A successful £25 free bet on Norwich or Swansea to win by a single goal would return £56.25, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
If Norwich do win, they are likely to establish a lead in the first half, with five of the seven goals they have scored this season coming before the interval.
The best bet could therefore be on Norwich to be winning at half time and full time at the attractive odds of 12/5.
