Goal happy Blues face Norwich on Boxing Day: The Odds

Chelsea are 1.62 with Betfred and Paddy Power to beat Norwich in their Boxing Day clash at Carrow Road.
The stats are certainly good as far as Chelsea are concerned as they have managed to put 14 past Norwich in their last 5 meetings (w4, D1) in the league, with the home side managing just three in reply.
The Blues beat them 4-1 at Carrow Road back in October, and will be hopeful of another wide margin victory following their 8-0 demolition of Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
That game saw Fernando Torres continue his resurgence under Rafa Benitez when he opened the scoring with a header in the third minute.
The Spaniard is priced up at 5.5 with bet365 and Paddy Power to repeat the does and bag the opener in this encounter, and looks well worth a  punt at those odds.
For those looking for a bigger price alternative, Ramires – who scored 2 against the Villans – could be a bit of each-way value in the same market at a standout 17 with bet365.
Although everything suggests a comfortable win for Chelsea, it’s noting that the Canaries have been very good at home this season and managed to hold Chelsea to a 0-0 draw in the corresponding fixture last season.
However if Chelsea turn up in the same mood as they did against Villa then it’s hard to see them not coming away with all three points.
I fancy Chelsea to make their class tell an notch a 3-0 win, and that outcome is a 13 chance with Betfred.
The other bet that looks a bit of value is for Chelsea to win to nil at 2.8 with Paddy Power.
