Sunderland are odds-on favourites at 10/11 with Blue Square to get the better of Norwich at the Stadium of Light but as the Canaries, Stan James’ 15/4 outsiders, are unbeaten in five league and cup matches on the road, winning their last three, the hosts don’t exactly set the pulse racing.
At the same time, the Black Cats are strong enough under Martin O’Neill to make the visitors look too risky so it could be worth seeking value away from the match betting.
Ladbrokes’ 5/6 for both teams to score certainly catches the eye ahead of a game in which both teams have plenty to offer and for punters looking to take that a touch further, Skybet post 5/2 against City striker Steve Morison finding the net at any stage. The Welsh international has struck nine times for the Canaries this term and has helped himself to three in his last four.
Both teams should also find the net at the Reebok Stadium, where Bolton and Arsenal lock horns. The Trotters are looking increasingly confident while the Gunners are vulnerable at the back but possess the top flight’s second best scoring record on the road, making Stan James’ 7/10 hard to ignore.
Both teams to score treble on games at Sunderland, Bolton and Blackburn – 19/5 (Stan James)
