The bookies rate Liverpool a 1/3 chance to beat Norwich which in percentage terms is 75%. This doesn’t look generous when you see Norwich in a very respectable 9th position in the Premiership and hear about their decent football and batting spirit.
Norwich are also creating plenty of goal scoring chances, in fact, just 7 less on target shots than Liverpool so far in the premiership this season (33 compared to Liverpool’s 40). But their league position has been gained through home victories over Swansea and Sunderland and an away win at struggling Bolton so could be flattering.
With such short odds on a Liverpool victory, those wanting a bet on the match maybe more interested in a goal scorer bet. Suarez has now put in 23 shots from his 593 minutes of premiership action this season, 11 on target for his 4 goals. The bookies rate him a 3/1 chance to score first and a very short 5/6 to score at anytime during the match.
Carroll at 4/1 to score first, 11/10 anytime has made 15 shots, 6 on target but only completed 467 minutes. Kuyt’s 455 minutes haven’t been quite as productive in the shot making department with 9 and 4 on target which is probably why he’s priced at 11/2 to score first and 15/8 anytime. The in form Gerrard can be backed at 11/2 first goal scorer and an interesting 6/4 at anytime.
If you think Norwich will score, like all four league visitors to Anfield so far this season, then the value could lie in Anthony Pilkington who hasn’t only scored more goals than Holt but has had more shots too. He is 6/1 to score anytime and 20/1 to score first.
