Norwich City - Tottenham Betting Preview: High-scoring Spurs are value to progress
Andre Villas-Boas' men were in fine form at the weekend and Willie Duncan is backing them to hit the goal trail against Chris Hughton's Canaries in the Capital One CupTottenham will look to extend their recent good run of form when they travel to face Norwich City, in what promises to be an intriguing Capital One Cup clash at Carrow Road on Wednesday evening.
Andre Villas-Boas’ men have lost just one of their last 12 competitive matches and were 2-1 winners against Southampton on Sunday.
With Spurs going for glory in four competitions this season, Villas-Boas may be tempted to shuffle the pack on Wednesday but, nevertheless, Marathon Bet make the north London club 89/100 (1.89) favourites to progress to the quarter-finals.
The Canaries have endured a largely disappointing start to the season and Chris Hughton, who was once on the coaching staff at White Hart Lane, will be keen to see his side put their indifferent league form behind them with victory against his former club in the Capital One Cup.
Norwich can be backed at 33/10 (4.30) with Marathon Bet to knock out Spurs on Wednesday, while the same firm go 14/5 (3.80) that the match ends in a draw inside 90 minutes.
Spurs have not always found their scoring touch in European competition this term, but that has not been the case in domestic action and it should be noted that Villas-Boas' side have scored at least twice in each of their last seven domestic matches, scoring three goals on the road on three separate occasions.
With that in mind, the 81/100 (1.81) quote from Marathon Bet for Spurs to score two or more goals looks to represent outstanding value and should be backed accordingly here.
Despite Spurs’ impressive record in front of goal, the hosts can take some solace from the visitors’ defensive deficiencies.
Villas-Boas’ men have managed just three clean sheets in 13 competitive outings this season and the Canaries will be hopeful of notching a goal at least.
Thus, those seeking extra value could back the tempting 38/5 (8.60) with Marathon Bet for Spurs to secure their place in the last eight of the competition with a 2-1 victory at Carrow Road and that is the value play here.
