Kick-off: 1930, 22/01/2020
Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Norwich gave their survival prospects a boost with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Bournemouth but may struggle to back that up.
Tottenham have now failed to score in their last three games, with their last goals coming in a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road in December.
But only three teams have scored more home goals than Spurs, while Norwich have netted a league-low five times on their travels.
With that in mind, we like 1/1 in the Both Teams to Score: No market as our opening Tottenham vs Norwich prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Spurs saw their winless Premier League run stretch to four games after a goalless draw at Watford.
The result at Vicarage Road could have been even worse had Watford captain Troy Deeney not seen his second-half penalty saved by Paulo Gazzaniga.
Jose Mourinho’s side have not scored in the league since prolific frontman Harry Kane suffered a hamstring injury on New Year’s Day.
Mourinho saw Lucas Moura, Dele Alli and Heung-min Son all miss good chances, while Erik Lamela’s last-gasp effort was painstakingly cleared off the line with just millimetres to spare.
He said: “This is a kind of game, I am not saying we would win, but it is the kind of game where you have a goalscorer, where you have a guy who smells goals, probably you win it.”
The reverse game in Norfolk over Christmas was only the second time there had been over 2.5 goals in Tottenham’s last six league fixtures.
Eight of the Canaries’ last 10 games away from home have also seen two goals or less so under 2.5 goals is a strong pick at 7/5 in the Tottenham vs Norwich odds.
Last Tottenham line-up: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Tanganga, Lamela, Winks, Lo Celso, Alli, Moura, Son.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Teemu Pukki’s 10th league goal of the season helped Norwich to a first win in 10 games.
The Finland international netted the only goal from the penalty spot after Cherries defender Steve Cook was sent off for deliberate handball.
Norwich had Ben Godfrey dismissed late on but held on to record a much-needed three points and a first clean sheet at Carrow Road since April.
Boss Daniel Farke told the club’s official website: “We’re not over excited, we know it’s only the first step and it will definitely be a long road to realise this miracle.
“It was an important win for us, without any doubt. It was well deserved because from the first to the last second, we were the better side. A clean sheet as well, so good for the mood, the confidence and the table.”
Spurs have generally been slow starters, not winning the first half in any of their last six games, while Norwich have not prevailed in the second half in their previous eight.
To round off our Tottenham vs Norwich betting tips, we are backing Draw HT/Tottenham FT at 16/5.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Zimmermann, Byram, Tettey, McLean, Buendia, Duda, Cantwell, Pukki.
