Premier League betting delivers a clash between Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur in week 27 betting, a clash that is being tipped conspicuously in favour of the visitors. Will the Spurs come through on expectations or will Norwich turn the odds in their favour?

Tottenham Hotspur at the advantage

Odds makers send Tottenham Hotspur into their clash with Norwich City as the conspicuous favourites, albeit on the short side of even money at +105 soccer odds or thereabouts depending on your choice sportsbook.

Tottenham Hotspur are currently fifth in the table on the back of a 15-5-6 record and 50 points. They are only three points adrift of Liverpool in fourth place, a gap they’ll hope to close or at least maintain with a winning performance in week 27 EPL betting.

Auspiciously, the Spurs have played rather well away from White Hart Lane this season; they are 9-2-2 on the road, a mark that is better than their home mark that stands at 6-3-4 to date. They even score more and defend better away from their kop and the prying eyes of their beloved fans – they’ve scored 21 goals and conceded 14 on the road compared to 15 goals scored and 18 conceded at home.

Given this trend it’s hardly surprising that odds makers are tipping this match in their camp. What’s more, if this trend holds true, backing the Spurs at their tempting +105 soccer odds will prove to be a profitable enterprise for soccer bettors this weekend.

Norwich City at the disadvantage

With Premier League survival hanging by a thread, it’s no wonder confidence runs low where Norwich City are concerned.

Sat in 16th place, Norwich City boast a subpar 6-7-13 mark and 25 points. Only a point separates them from the relegation quagmire and Championship soccer next season. Indeed, these are desperate times for Norwich but with just one win in their last seven home games across all competitions (4-5-4 overall at home in league action), the prognosis isn’t favourable. Case-and-point, Bet365 sends Norwich City into their clash with Tottenham at +275 soccer odds to win outright.

On the plus side (if we’re to be generous) Norwich are undefeated in their last three home league matches with one win and two draws; most impressively, they held Man City to a scoreless draw, which is no mean feat by any stretch of the imagination. This run of form presents a sliver of hope at least where the draw result is concerned, offered at +240 soccer odds to win outright at Bet365.

Norwich City vs. Tottenham Hotspur match betting tips and picks:

Tottenham Hotspur are one of the best clubs on the road this season in EPL betting, winning eight and losing just two of their last 12 away games. What’s more, they are riding a seven game undefeated streak on the road with six wins and a draw. So is it any wonder they are benefiting from a rather favourable sports-betting outlook?

Obviously, this favourable outlook is warranted and, thus, soccer bettors could do no worse than to back the Spurs at +105 to win outright. Another value soccer pick to consider where the Spurs are concerned involves the totals. As mentioned earlier, Spurs score more goals on the road than they do at home, a fact that is highlighted by 17 goals scored in their last seven games. So taking the Over 2.5 at +100 should prove a solid soccer pick as well.
