Despite the Canaries’ recent poor run, Wolves’ rookie boss Terry Connor would surely give anything to trade places with Paul Lambert at Norwich.
The Carrow Road outfit have impressed on their Premier League return, picking up 36 points thus far to guide them to within sight of safety.
Home form has been key for Lambert’s team, with five wins on their own patch, and they are 3/4 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market to add another three points against the worst away side in the Premier League.
Wanderers’ season hit a nadir with the 5-0 home defeat by Manchester United last weekend which saw them slump to bottom of the table and it would take a brave punter to back them to win here at 17/5, with even a draw (27/10) looking beyond them at the moment.
The Canaries should look to score early as not only have Wolves conceded the first goal in each of their last 11 games, they’ve failed to score inside the opening 15 minutes of games this season.
Since Connor took on the manager’s job on a full-time basis, Wolves have lost three times by a combined score of 12-0 and they are 11/5 to again lose to nil.
However, Lambert’s team are not built for solid defence, having kept just two clean sheets all season, and the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign finished 2-2, meaning it’s worth betting on over 3.5 goals at 33/20.
The Canaries should look to score early as not only have Wolves conceded the first goal in each of their last 11 games, they’ve failed to score inside the opening 15 minutes of games this season, making Norwich clear favourites to open the scoring in the first half at evens.
Given the visitors’ recent form, it’s worth new customers using the free £25 bet available when registering with bwin to back Norwich to win a game of over 3.5 goals, potentially earning them £106.25.
In addition to Wolves’ woes, there is historical precedent for Norwich to dominate as they won 5-2 in the last fixture between the sides at Carrow Road.
Punters looking for longer odds should therefore consider betting on there being five goals or more for the fourth time in Wolves’ last six games, which is available at 15/4.
