Championship – Norwich City vs Middlesbrough Betting Preview

Norwich City started the season quite slowly and were in mid table for quite some time however, things quickly changed and they are now right in the mix for the Championship title. At the moment they are sat in second place in the league table with a total of 82 points. Bournemouth are top of the league on 83 points and their opponents for this game Middlesbrough, are two places behind Norwich but it is only one point that separates the two teams. A win here could be massive for the hosts but it will not be easy.

Middlesbrough are themselves doing well but a few games ago they lost at home to Watford which delt them a huge blow and more importantly sore the yellows move in front of the visitors for this game. If Middlesbrough win the game then they will leapfrog their opponents and will be probably have a massive say in how things pan out come the end of the season. Bamford is their top goalscorer this season on 18 goals and he will need to be firing on all cylinders if they are to claim the scalp of Norwich City on Friday night.

Norwich City will be delighted to welcome back Bradley Johnson after he has missed the last two games through injury. Lewis Grabban will be assessed.

Middlesbrough Team News

Middlesbrough will be without their veteran defender Woodgate who is currently struggling with a hamstring problem, other defender Ayala is a doubt for this game and will also face a late fitness test. Adomah is also going to face a late test.

Norwich City vs Middlesbrough Average Goals Per Game Statistics

In the 23 games these two teams have played against each other over the years, there was a total of 60 goals, which gives us an average goals per game statistic of 2.60.

Both teams are fighting for promotion this year so I expect this to be an open game with plenty of goals scored, I predict at least 3 goals to be scored in this match.

Norwich City vs Middlesbrough Current Betting Odds Market

Norwich City are the clear favourites in this game which I believe to be the right decision by the online bookmakers who have priced them up at a best price of 21/20 with Ladbrokes – £25 Free Bets for New Customers.

The draw for me seems an unlikely outcome considering that the two teams have had a low number of draws in the 23 times they have faced each other prior to this match, if you fancy that to change then BetVictor provide the best value for the draw @ 5/2 – £25 Free Bets for New Customers.

Middlesbrough are the slight underdogs to win this match and I personally fancy them to lose and agree with the online bookmakers and their decision to price them up at 3/1 with Betfred – Bet £10 & Get £30 Free Bets for New Customers.

Norwich City vs Middlesbrough Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

It is very good to see that these two teams are doing well so far this season, Middlesbrough will be disappointed that they failed to maintain their flying form which saw them dominate the top of the table for a period of time. I expect them to lose this match and I fancy their to be quite a few goals scored in the match. If Leadbitter scores I expect him to get on the score sheet.

Norwich City will see this as a huge opportunity to put some daylight between themselves and their opponents for this match Middlebrough. Norwich City are the form team in the league right now and I truly believe it will be them the ones who are celebrating come the full time whistle.

Time for my predictions now and it has been a little difficult to choose a winner here, however I have opted to go for Norwich City race to 2 goals as by banker.

My saver is going to be a correct score of 3-1 to Norwich City.
