Betting: Norwich City are 100/1 to win the FA Cup
It was only a fortnight ago that the Canaries headed to The Hawthorns and came home with three precious points.
Yet despite recording an impressive 2-1 Premier League victory, in a match they started as 11/4 underdogs, bookies are not expecting a repeat of that City success, with bet365 pricing them at 3/1 to win, whereas West Bromwich Albion kick off as Blue Square's clear 10/11 favourites.
Betfred make City 100/1 to win the FA Cup – an each-way bet would return 50/1 if they reached the final – but Paul Lambert's men will, for now at least, be focused solely on making the fifth round, a task which is by no means a foregone conclusion.
In keeping with both league results this season, there's every chance of tomorrow's encounter being exceptionally close. BetVictor.com offers 19/4 against Norwich winning by a single goal margin as Boylesports chalk a massive 11/1 against a 1-0 away victory.
Elsewhere, Blue Square mark 5/6 about the tie's total goal minutes being less than 140 and Skybet rate the chances of Norwich keeping a clean sheet at 7/2. Given that Albion have scored only eight times at home in league matches, both of these wagers look particularly decent value.
Although the two league fixtures have finished conclusively, it's hardly surprising that the draw has been well backed. Bet365 price a score draw at 10/3 while William Hill mark the match draw at 11/4 and Partybets post 13/2 against a 1-1 outcome.
In Stan James' handicap market, City are 5/6 to win when handed a one-goal start, but many punters believe they'll require little artificial assistance to see off a side that has suffered seven home league defeats.

The price of another 2-1 win for City is considered a 12/1 chance by Betfred, while Steve Morison, scorer of the winner a couple of weeks ago, is rated a 12/5 shot by Skybet to find the net at any time tomorrow.
