Everton v Norwich Betting Preview
This looks as if it will be one of the most entertaining and hotly contested matches in the Premier League last weekend. Everton welcome the buoyant Canaries to Goodison Park and with the recent turnaround in form from Chris Hughton’s men and Everton suddenly struggling to put wins on the board, there will be some interest in Norwich getting something out of this match. But weighing up the stats and taken certain important factors into consideration, all logic should dictate that this is going to be a routine home win for the Toffees, regardless.

Everton v Norwich Recommended Bet:
The stand out stat that is being bandied around in favour of Norwich, is that Everton have won just one of their last six matches. But looking at that closer, four matches in that run were away from home (W0 D3 L1) while their two home games in that patch produced a win and a draw. So there is little suggestion that Norwich are going to roll in and steal. David Moyes’ men are unbeaten in their last eight matches against Norwich City in all competition (winning five of them). You can add to that their general strong home form as well, and the Toffees has won seven and drawn two of their last nine matches in the Premier League at Goodison park. Their strong start to the season has lost some of its shine, but they are still a well balanced and solid side and are one of the higher scoring teams this season. They have scored more than double the amount that Norwich have managed so far this term anyway. The Toffees are averaging two goals per game at home in the league this season, fired along by the class of Nikica Jelavic and the power of Marouane Fellaini and that should be more than enough to gun down the limited Norwich. 80% of Everton’s matches at Goodison have produced over 2.5 goals and that is because they have only kept one clean sheet at Goodison all season. The Toffees should be more than comfortable in this one, despite Norwich’s massive success last weekend.

Chris Hughton saw his side grind out a 1-0 home win over Manchester United. That was a massive triumph for them and it confirmed their positive swing of form. After losing four of their first seven matches in the league, Norwich have won three of the last five and have drawn the other two. It has been a great stretch of form from them. However, all of those wins have been produced at home, and they haven’t won away from home this season. Norwich have scored just three away goals all season and lack of goal scoring power is their biggest downfall. They showed tremendous diligence and hard work in deservedly getting the better of Manchester United, and nine of Norwich’s twelve games this season have gone under 2.5 goals. The three that haven’t have produced a massive seventeen goals, so when they blow up, they blow up big. Norwich haven’t beaten one of the Merseyside teams in the last thirteen attempts, losing nine and with them having won just one of their last twelve away matches in the Premier League (losing seven), it should be a comfortable ride for the Toffees. The Canaries will no doubt offer some resistance but the Toffees should get the better of things in the long run, therefore a Half Time/Full Time Bet for a price of 3/1 at online bookmaker Paddy Power could be valuable.
