You really have to wondering if Norwich will be in the top flight next season. Their winless drought continues but they may rightly take some huge positives from their 0-0 draw against Manchester City last time out. West Brom are on the boil with a four match unbeaten streak in the Premier League, winning three of those and they are well rested side not having played since beating Manchester United last time out on March 6th. West Brom are 11/10 for the win, with the draw at 11/5 and Norwich at 13/5.
Probably worth taking a poke on 0-0 bore draw insurance on this one at Bet365. If a pre-match wager on the correct score, scorecast or halftime/full time market loses because of no goals being scored in the game then you will get your lost stake refunded.

No team has had fewer shots on target this season that West Brom in the Premier League
Norwich have won two and lost just one of their last four at the Hawthorns
The Baggies have lost only one of their last seven league matches
Norwich have failed to win any of their last ten league games, taking two points only in that sequence
The Baggies have really put a positive run of form together with four matches unbeaten in the Premier League and having won three of them. There should be another three points on offer for them on Saturday as they face the relegation threatened Norwich. The Baggies won the league match earlier in the season 1-0 but they did crash out of the League Cup against the Canaries. Still Tony Pulis has seen the Baggies lose just one of their last seven Premier League matches home and away and at the Hawthorns alone they have gone six matches unbeaten in a great W4 D2 record. That would hint at them collecting maximum points on Saturday. Salomon Rondon’s seven Premier League goals have won WBA 10 points this season; more points than Romelu Lukaku (8), Sergio Aguero (7), Olivier Giroud (7) and Harry Kane (6) have won for their clubs. He is a 15/8 option in the anytime goalscorer market at Bet365.
The Baggies have actually lost three of their last four on home soil against Norwich, but they are on the up at the moment and Norwich are certainly going the other way. The Baggies beat Manchester United in their last game at the Hawthorns which followed a success there against Crypt asl Place. So they look in good shape and they are trading at a price of 12/5 to go out and win this one to nil. If you want a stat to back that up then since Pulis took over the club back in January 2015, his side has earned more top flight clean sheets than any other club (20 of them!). There has to be some appeal in looking at something like a West Brom 1-0 win at a price of 6/1 with online betting site Bet365.
Norwich are tanking badly but they earned what for them, was a great point against Manchester City last weekend. However, that was on home soil and they have been shocking on the road. The Canaries have lost their last six away games in the top flight and have posted a W1 L10 in their last eleven league games away from Carrow Road. They can’t be trusted and they have failed to score in their last four away games as well and have netted only one in their last six out on the road. It’s not happening for them even though they have posted a W2 D1 L1 record in their last four trips to the Hawthorns they have taken just two points from the last thirty available in the top flight and are likely to tumble again on Saturday.
The Canaries have struggled badly away from home all season and it’s a massive gamble throwing any wagers at them. West Brom look to be on a positive trend at the moment and have some great results on the board recently at the Hawthorns. It should be a routine three points from them at home on Saturday.
