The Canaries are unbeaten, and now they'll host Leicester City in what should be a very competitive 90+ mins. It's time to break down the soccer odds and see where we can find an edge.

Odds Overview
Norwich City can be backed in the +125 to +135 soccer odds range as they search to remain unbeaten in five straight. It'd be a great fit for a side that people aren't talking much about at all. If you instead think Leicester City should be the ones worthy of your soccer pick, you can find them quoted at +230 or so to win outright. A draw is at +245 to +250.


Norwich City
You've got to credit the Canaries for the performances they've been putting up in recent weeks. They've beaten Bournemouth and West Brom while drawing with Liverpool and West Ham, with both of those deadlocks coming away from home to boot.

It's clear this is a team on the up and up as of now, and it's been Nathan Redmon and Russell Martin that have been scoring most of the goals; they've already combined for six between them through the first seven matches of the campaign.


Leicester City
The Foxes have been rock solid to start the season. They're in eighth place in the highly competitive Premier League, with 12 points earned so far. 

Perhaps most impressively, Leicester has been good value when playing away from home; they've still yet to lose a single match outside of Leicester heading into the weekend.


EPL Soccer Pick
We really don't see much separating these two outfits when they meet up at Carrow Road. Norwich City has been playing very well, but Leicester City has proven that they're not going to be pushovers no matter the occasion. Their place in the top 10 of the Premier League backs that sentiment up.

So, a small wager on the draw may in fact be the best route to take. We look for the Foxes to bring a competitive effort away from home, as they try to bounce back following a bad home loss to Arsenal

Predicted Final Score: Norwich City 1 Leicester 1
