Arsenal vs Norwich – The Odds

Bookmakers have chalked up Arsenal at a top priced 1.25 to take care of Norwich and they look bankers to silence the Canaries.
 
In truth, both sides come into this in poor form having failed to win any of their last three games.
 
But the Gunners are by far the better side and should have little difficulty getting back on the winning trail and take another step towards securing third place and Champions League football next season..
 
Arsene Wenger’s men have won each of their last four games against the Norwich and only Man City  have conceded fewer home goals than them this season.
 
That’s good reading, especially when you throw in the fact that Paul Lambert’s men would be in the bottom three judged on their last six games and have conceded 11 times in the last 3.
 
It really should be easy for Arsenal, but rather than back them at a  1.25 I would suggest a punt on them in the HT/FT market at 1.67 with Paddy Power.
 
Norwich were dreadful in defence last weekend against Liverpool, and Arsenal are sure to go for the jugular right from the first whistle after that horror show.
 
I simply cannot see the visitors to hold out in the first 45 minutes, and the game could actually be all but over by half-time as the floodgates could open if Arsenal make an early breakthrough.
 
Robin van Persie got back on the scoresheet against Stoke last weekend, and once again is favourite to break the deadlock at a top priced 3.5 with Paddy Power.
 
That is plenty short enough, but given that most firms offer just 3 about him doing so it’s value given that he is by far the most likely to unlock the Norwich back-line.
 
Also given that only Liverpool have allowed fewer shots on target against them in the top flight this season, it’s not hard to see Arsenal keeping a clean sheet.
 
They are 1.83 chances with bet365 to do so, and that looks a cracking price.
 
Arsenal to win 3-0 or 4-0 is my idea of the outcome, and those scorelines can be backed at 8.5 and 12 respectively with Paddy Power.
