Nothing is going to stop Manchester City from getting maximum points on Saturday when they take on strugglers Norwich at the Etihad. Check out our soccer odds preview and free pick inside.

Manchester City
Premier League favorites City suffered a slight blip, but the ominous sign for all the other clubs in the division is that they are back and mean business, and that spells big trouble for the visitors in this matchup.

City are the shortest price favorite on the Premier League odds board this week, at just 1.28, and odds-on punters won't be put off by that price, and it will still be out in force as it's just impossible to oppose them. Manuel Pellegrini's side has gone unbeaten for the last six matches and have now won its last four at home, banging in an incredible 18 goals in the process. One thing that is certain in this clash is that there is going to be goals, as 18 of the beauties have been scored in the last three Premier League meetings and over 2.5 goals at 1.50 with Skybet is as good as finding the money on the street, also over 3.5 goals looks a nice soccer pick as well at a general 2.20.

City have dished out some brutal defeats to the Canaries recently with a 7-0 battering in their last clash, a 6-1 and a 5-1 reverses in recent years, and there is every reason to suggest that this is going to be another long afternoon for the visitors.
I don't really like getting with strong favorites on the asian handicap lines, but on this occasion I will make an exception and take the 2.25 on the home side -2 with PaddyPower.

 

Norwich City
Any of you who are seriously contemplating taking the 13.0 with 888sport on a Norwich victory, well, you must be looking forward to Santa Claus arriving soon, as you'd have to still believe in fairytales.

A £10 win on Norwich at 13.0 will see you lose £10, so keep your money in your pocket for some Halloween treats. Alex Neil has done a fantastic job in the Carrow Road hot-seat, but in recent weeks they've struggled and arrive at the toughest test of the season in their worst form without a win in their last five matches.
On their last road trip, they were beaten by a struggling Newcastle side 6-2 (the same Newcastle team that were hit for six by City with a 6-1 defeat), so the omens aren't looking good.
Wilfried Bony was on the scoresheet again for City in the 5-1 Capital One win over Crystal Palace in midweek, and the former Swansea striker looks to be relishing the opportunity to lead the City attack with Sergio Aguero injured, and the Ivorian at 5.0 to open the floodgates with the first goal is a bet I like the look of.
