Derby host Norwich in the early game this Saturday with both teams desperate for all three points to give their promotion hopes a big push.


Derby v Norwich Betting Tips and Prediction

You may remember around this time last month I told you of the frequency in the early Saturday kick-offs in the Championship ending with minimal goals. The game in question that week was Wolves v Birmingham and lo and behold the game ended up 0-0.

Since that game there have been a further four 12.15 matches on a Saturday and only one of them has produced over 2.5 goals in total. There are various reasons for this, and another one in terms of Saturday could be the tension that the game is likely to ensue.

Derby were knocked off top spot with a tough 2-0 loss at Middlesbrough at the same time last week and after their midweek loss to Chelsea (no shame in that) they have lost three of their last four.

Norwich have picked up their form in recent weeks with a couple of wins after a slide down the table, but they themselves have only won once in their last four away games.

This should lead to a tight affair so again, under 2.5 goals is a strong shout.

Derby v Norwich betting tip is for under 2.5 goals and the best odds are 19/20 with Bet365.

Derby have been unlucky of late having put up a good show against Chelsea and losing a man early on against Boro. I fully expect them to bounce back this week against an inconsistent Norwich side, who on their day are capable of taking apart any team in the division – but it is something they do not put into practice regularly enough.

For my prediction of a winner between Derby and Norwich I feel that Derby will be too strong for them on this occasion so I suggest backing them outright or if you fancy upping the odds back them to win and under 2.5 goals as one bet.

The next Derby v Norwich betting tip is Derby to win and under 2.5 goals at 4/1 with Betfair.

I am a big fan of tipping players who could potentially haunt their old club by scoring against them and there is a great opportunity to cash in on such an occasion in this game.  Chris Martin was on Norwich's books between 2006 and 2013 and was farmed out on loan for most of that time. I'm sure Martin has a point to prove to his former employers and with 14 goals already this season he is a man in form.

Our last Derby v Norwich betting tip is for Chris Martin to score first at odds of 5/1 with Paddy Power.
