Norwich vs Hull predictions and betting tips for this Wednesday’s Championship clash on March 13th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Norwich weren’t at their free-flowing best on Friday night, but the performance was good enough to secure all three points against mid-table Swansea. They host travel-sick Hull at Carrow Road on Wednesday night, and should be able to cement their lead at the top of the table. The Tigers were second best against Nottingham Forest at the weekend, and will be desperate to get back to the Kcom. See our Norwich vs Hull predictions below.
On paper, this looks like the perfect fixture for Norwich. The Canaries are flying high, and although they’re top at the time of writing, they may be second by the time this game gets underway. Daniel Farke’s men have been a joy to watch this season, winning 12 of their 18 matches in East Anglia, and they will be expected to make it victory number 13 on home soil here. Emi Buendia’s thunderous strike was the difference on Friday night, with Norwich failing to extend their advantage late on. Swansea made it difficult for their opponents, and I expect Hull to take the same approach, but they might not be as effective. Nigel Adkin’s men are still in with a sniff of the play-offs, but the discrepency between their home and away form is startling. On Humberside, they’ve won four of their last five matches, whereas they’ve lost four of their last five on their travels. They will be particularly disappointed with the way they crumbled against Forest at the weekend, and having had 24 hours less rest, they could struggle to cope with a lively Norwich outift. Norwich and Over 1.5 Goals failed to cash in on Friday night, but Hull’s recent struggles on the road suggest that it’s worth siding with again here. The visitors have conceded 15 goals in their last five away days. Norwich and Over 1.5 Goals is the first of our Championship betting tips for Wednesday evening.
With their porous defence, this could be a long evening for Hull, but they do possess a threat at the other end of the field. Swansea created several good chances in the first half at Carrow Road, and could have made a real game of it, and Hull could find the back of the net in this one. Fraizer Campbell could return to the side for this one, and he’s always a danger, whilst hot property Jarred Bowen isn’t adverse to scoring against top six teams. This could be a very open game, so Over 2.5 Goals looks like a decent option in this one. It would have landed in nine of Hull’s last eleven away games and that pattern should continue here. Over 2.5 Goals is odds-on, but it’s the second of our Norwich vs Hull predictions for this evening’s game.
Teemu Pukki is the obvious goalscoring pick in this game, but the Finn was oddly profligate on Friday night. He should be able to bounce back in this encounter. You’re probably bored stuff of seeing him tipped up in televised ties, but even at a shade of odds-on, it’s difficult to ignore a man who has 24 Championship goals in 32 appearances this season. His movement will likely cause Hull’s youthful back-line a few issues here, and I expect him to be backed amongst the goals on Wednesday night. He is the third of our Norwich vs Hull predictions for Wednesday’s game at Carrow Road.
With Farke’s men flying high, and looking good for promotion to the Premier League, it’s unsurprising to see them odds-on at home. For the second game running, Norwich can be backed at around 3/5 for victory, which is ideal for accumulator backers. The draw would still likely see them retain top spot (depending on Leeds’ result) and is available at 10/3. Hull haven’t won away since victory at Elland Road on December 29th, and are 19/4 to end that barren run in East Anglia.
It’s 8/13 for Over 2.5 Goals in this game, with goals expected. Norwich struggled to open up Swansea on Friday, but they should get plenty of opportunities in this one. Under 2.5 Goals is priced at 13/10 whilst those who fancy a goal-fest can get 13/8 on Over 3.5 Goals in this tie.
Our man Teemu Pukki is the 10/3 favourite to bag the opener in this tie, and is always a popular selection. Jordan Rhodes is usually restricted to appearances from the bench, and is available at 9/2 here. Denis Srbeny is next in line at 11/2 whilst Friday’s hero Emi Buendia 7/1 with most bookmakers to break the deadlock.
