Our resident betting expert is also tipping Edin Dzeko to net as the Citizens beat Fulham without conceding a goal at the Etihad Stadium.
Also in this edition, ready why the Tipster’s bet of the week is West Bromwich Albion to beat Aston Villa!
The Tipster expects Liverpool to return to winning ways after their disappointing defeat by Manchester United. After going on a long unbeaten league run, Norwich, perhaps with their small squad being tested to the limit, had a wretched Christmas period, losing all four festive games. However, the 3/10 for the home win does not appeal. Instead the Tipster thinks the value is to be found in backing Luis Suárez to continue his torment of the Canaries. Suárez has scored hat-tricks in his last two appearances against them, so an offer of 12/5 for him to score two or more goals should be snapped up.
The Tipster fancies Roberto Mancini’s side to win comfortably against a horribly out-of-form Fulham. He watched the Cottagers recently against Liverpool – and they were awful. Martin Jol’s men have failed to score in three of their last five games on the road, while the defending Premier League champions have kept four clean sheets in their last five outings. City to win to nil at 11/10 looks a good bet.
Sergio Aguero could be back for the Citizens following a spell on the sidelines, but with Edin Dzeko firing on all cylinders, Mancini could stick with the Bosnia-Herzegovina striker. He scored in a man-of-the-match display at Arsenal last weekend, taking his tally to 11 goals for the season. Bearing in mind that he also scored at Craven Cottage this term, the Tipster is backing Dzeko to score any time at 5/6.
West Brom absolutely battered Reading last week and amazingly still lost. Paul Lambert’s Villa are in a rut, losing four of their last five, and it’s hard to see how they will stop the rot against a good team like West Brom. The Tipster is backing Villa to continue their descent down the Premier League table and West Brom to win at 4/6 is our resident betting expert’s tip of the week!
Liverpool’s main man this season has undoubtedly been Suárez, netting 15 Premier League goals. Even following the arrival of Daniel Sturridge, who has hit the ground running with two goals, Suárez will still be the danger man for Norwich. He netted a hat-trick at Carrow Road earlier this season, and the Tipster’s long shot is the Uruguayan to score first and Liverpool to win at good odds of 3/1.
