Betting Tips for the game
Brentford were able to snatch a second consecutive away draw to conclude 2018. The team were able to snatch this point off Birmingham City at the St Andrew’s Stadium.
Norwich City were involved in a rollercoaster 4-3 loss against Derby County at home. This was the first league defeat suffered by Norwich since October.
The reverse fixture between Norwich and Brentford produced a narrow 1-0 victory for the Canaries at home. Norwich’s last trip to Griffin Park also saw them pick up a victory by the same score. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for Norwich.

Brentford may have come up with a decent display against Birmingham but the lack of goals continues to affect the team’s ability to pick up three points. Since the departure of Dean Smith, Brentford have been at sixes and sevens. It is difficult to see the team getting anything out of the game against Norwich, who will be looking to bounce back immediately from the loss against Derby. Derby are a much better outfit than Brentford but they still conceded three against Norwich. Our preview would go with a win for Norwich.

Brentford vs Norwich City draw odds: 3.50
Brentford win odds: 2.55
Correct Score odds
Norwich have been one of the best attacking teams in the division with a return of 47 goals putting them only behind West Brom this season. Even though Norwich have suffered from a major blip in terms of defensive performances of late, Brentford may not be able to get a lot of goals. Forwards like Maupay have been in good form throughout the campaign, but Brentford have been unable to string together decent chances. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Norwich.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last two games between Norwich and Brentford have produced a 2-1 score in favour of Norwich, but there have been high-scoring meetings between the two teams. Norwich alone may come up a couple of goals and this will drive up the total entertainment factor of this match. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki became the joint top scorer in the Championship after scoring one of the goals in the loss against Derby County. Pukki has been a consistent performer for Norwich this season and he has failed to score or assist in only one game out of the last eight appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Pukki.
