Liverpool vs Norwich City betting preview
No besmerchmant on Norwich, but this game doesn’t lend itself to much analysis.
Interestingly, it pits the two teams who spent the least in transfers this summer the Premier League. Liverpool was 19th. Norwich was 20th.
Regardless, with the game at Anfield, Liverpool find themselves as the week’s heaviest favorite. Most weeks, that honor goes to FFP violating Manchester City. However, the Fourmidables (-385) start on the road against what could be a surprising West Ham (+950).
Regardless if all of Jurgen Klopp’s attacking front trio (Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah) are fit to play a full 90, Liverpool will win this game.
Even at -625, it’s easy money. If you’re looking for a potential upset with long odds and value on Premier League Matchday 1, the aforementioned West Ham at +950 is worth consideration.
