Latest Stoke Norwich odds as Mark Hughes side look all the rage in the betting at a handy price for punters.
Stoke are seen as comfortable 20/21 favourites to beat a Norwich side still struggling to find goals on a regular basis as fans start to get a little anxious over recent performances.
Having both suffered abrupt defeats last weekend, both Stoke and Norwich will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Sunday lunchtime kickoff.
After losing 3-1 to Arsenal last Saturday, Stoke has seen themselves slip down to 10th in the table having been in the top 5 just after the international break.

The main injury concern for Mark Hughes side will be surrounding Matthew Etherington with the midfielder having suffered whiplash in a car accident on Friday and will require a late fitness test over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the club has sent young England goalkeeper Jack Butland on loan to Barnsley for the next couple of months meaning that Thomas Sorensen will now become Hughes No.2 keeper behind Asmir Begovic.
After scoring his first goal in 2 years during the week, Stephen Ireland might warrant a start in midfield alongside American Geoff Cameron who netted his first goal in English football against Arsenal last weekend.
For Norwich, their main aim will be to try and find the back of the net after scoring 3 goals in their first 5 games this season in the league.
However, Chris Hughton’s main concerns are at the back where captain Sebastian Bassong remains a massive doubt with a hamstring injury picked up in the defeat to Aston Villa last week.
Bassong was unavailable for the midweek win against Watford in the League Cup and is likely to sit out the trip to the Britannia Stadium on Sunday.
There will be some good news though for Hughton as record signing Ricky Van Wolfswinkel could very well return to the squad having overcome a toe injury that kept him out of the last couple of fixtures.
Hughton is also keen to keep some of the remnants of the squad that did indeed pick up the win in the League Cup with goalscorer Josh Murphy making the trip west to take on The Potters.
With both teams eager to improve on relatively poor showings last season, a win on Sunday could provide a massive boost to their side’s season’s as the Premier League table starts to take its proper shape.
