Cardiff City - Norwich City Betting Preview: Cagey Canaries can heap more misery on Bluebirds

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are enduring a dreadful run of form and our tipster is backing Chris Hughton's men to take something from their trip to Cardiff on Saturday afternoon
Cardiff City will look to haul themselves off the foot of the Premier League table when they play host to Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.

Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer’s side have lost six of their last seven league matches and are desperate for victory in their battle to beat the drop.

Despite their alarming run of form, the Bluebirds are chalked up as 11/10 (2.10) with William Hill to claim a crucial win over the Canaries this weekend.

Chris Hughton’s side have lost just one of their last four Premier League matches away from home and can be backed at 21/10 (3.10) with William Hill to heap more misery on the hosts with victory here while the same firm also offer 21/10 (3.10) that the match ends all square.

Kenwyne Jones may lead the line for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s charges this weekend following his move from Stoke City earlier this week and William Hill’s special “headline offer” 4/1 (5.0) quote for the former Sunderland striker to net at any time in a win for the
Bluebirds may well prove popular with punters.

Former Celtic striker Gary Hooper is the Canaries’ top scorer thus far this term, with seven goals in all competitions and, with that in mind, the 5/1 (6.0) “headline offer” from William Hill for the 26-year-old to score at any time in a win for Chris Hughton’s men carries plenty of appeal here.

It is worth noting that Cardiff have managed just 10 home goals in the Premier League thus far this term while Norwich have notched just seven times on their travels so goals could prove to be at a premium when these two sides go head-to-head.

Therefore, the 8/11 (1.73) quote from William Hill for fewer than three goals to be scored carries plenty appeal here while the even money (2.0) on offer for “no” in the both teams to score market also looks to be a solid selection.

However, the visitors do seem to have been underrated by the odds compilers and there is value to be had in backing the Canaries in William Hill’s draw no bet market at an appealing 11/8 (2.38) this weekend. Your stake will be returned if the match ends all square.
