Bristol City welcome high-flying Norwich City at Ashton Gate for Saturday’s late Championship kick-off. The hosts have recently experienced an upturn in form with a couple of wins in the past fortnight but they are still seven points adrift of the playoff positions. Norwich, however, are sitting at the top of the standings and they are the in-form side with points dropped in just one of their previous nine matches. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bristol celebrated their second win in three matches last weekend after they picked up a close 1-0 win over Birmingham City on the road. Famara Diedhiou scored the winner just after the hour mark for the visiting team.
Norwich, meanwhile, extended their unbeaten streak to nine matches after securing a 3-2 triumph over Bolton Wanderers. Teemu Pukki was once more the game-changer with a dramatic 93rd-minute winner.
Bristol’s previous encounter against Norwich was at Ashton Gate earlier in the year where the latter bagged a 1-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions fancy Norwich to continue their unbeaten run with another victory.

Bristol are given a price of 2.90 for a home triumph but we are not backing this result based on their recent showing in their stadium. Lee Johnson’s side have recently picked up a couple of league victories but none of those have come in their home patch, where they are on a three-match winless run. This should provide the advantage for an in-form Norwich side, which has picked up four wins and two draws in their previous six meetings against Bristol. Our preview predicts a Norwich win.

Bristol City win odds: 2.90
Bristol City and Norwich City draw odds: 3.25
Correct Score odds
Bristol have struggled to find the scoresheet especially in their home turf with just three goals from the past five matches at Ashton Gate. Norwich have excelled on their travels with 11 goals in their previous five away trips and their scoring prowess in itself should make the difference this weekend. Our correct score prediction fancies a Norwich 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bristol have gone through a difficult run of form in front of their supporters but they have nonetheless kept the scoring down with a maximum of two goals witnessed in the past four games at their home. The outcome was similar when Norwich made the trip to Ashton Gate earlier in the year. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki continued his good run of form against Bolton Wanderers last weekend where he scored the winning goal in injury time to maintain Norwich’s lead. The Finnish footballer has now netted 12 times from 18 appearances and he is a strong candidate to sustain his run this weekend with 70 percent of his shots testing the opposition keeper this term. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Pukki.
