Liverpool make an away trip to face relegation threatened Norwich knowing they are just four victories away from an inaugural Premier League title and we have some free football betting tips.
Do you remember the climactic scene of Hollywood film Twister? I'll refresh your memory because why would you. Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt cower in an rickety shed strapped to some pipes by their belts as a massive twister hurtles towards them set to kill them.
That situation reminds me a lot of the scenario between Liverpool and Norwich.
Liverpool go into this game undefeated in the Premier League this calender year chasing an 11th straight victory. In that run they have beaten Man City, Tottenham, Manchester United, Arsenal, Southampton and Everton. Norwich should be a formality.
Norwich meanwhile are teetering on the edge of relegation. They sacked, Chris Hughton, the manager who kept them up last season and replaced him with a rookie manager Neil Adams.
Talking to Norwich season ticket holders there is little doubt that getting rid of Hughton was the right decision the timing of it was foolish however.
It's not all doom and gloom for the Canaries though. One small positive is that they at least outplayed Fulham last weekend. A second positive is that they have no injury worries going into the game.
As you would expect the odds on Norwich getting anything out of this game though are long. A Norwich win is 8/1 with William Hill. Whilst a draw is 9/2 with betvictor and a Liverpool victory is 4/11 with skybet.
It's not realistic to tip anything but a Liverpool victory here but at odds of 4/11 they aren't really worth backing. We need to find another way into the game and I have come up with a few options.
Luis Suarez has scored 11 times against Norwich in five matches. Included in this were a Premier League record three hat-tricks. Odds on Suarez bagging two goals or more goals are 11/5 with bet365.
In the anytime goalscorer market. Gerrard to score is 7/4 with bet365. The captain has been in good form recently and it is likely that Norwich will offer the referees plenty of chances to award Liverpool a spot kick for Gerrard to convert.
A bet I like even more though is Liverpool to win and there to be under 2.5 goals. When initially thinking about this match you might well imagine that Liverpool are going to win and score a hatful of goals. I don't think this will be the case though.
It's squeaky bum time. The pressure of the situation is not going to contribute to a high scoring situation. Furthermore, Norwich don't get thrashed at home. They have conceded only 13 goals at home all season and have kept cleansheets against the likes of Man City and Tottenham. Liverpool to win and there to be under 2.5 goals is 7/2 with William Hill.
