Big Free Bets Norwich City welcome Sunderland to the Carrow Road seeking a first win of the season. After narrowly missing out on the play-offs last season, Norwich are keen on promotion. The club were just 10 points behind Fulham, who finished in the final play-off spot in the Championship 16/17 season. Sunderland went through a horrendous Premier League campaign and the team finished with just six wins. A lot has changed since then in terms of playing personnel and manager.

Norwich City FC vs Sunderland AFC – Betting Tips for the game

The opening game witnessed Norwich City securing a deserved point at Craven Cottage, but new manager Daniel Farke would have been hoping for a winning start.

Sunderland also have a new manager in the form of Simon Grayson, who is well-versed with the Championship. Yet, he was unable to prevent the team from dropping two points at home in the opening game of the season.

The previous meeting between Sunderland and Norwich took place at Carrow Road with the away team securing a 3-0 victory. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Norwich.

Norwich City FC vs Sunderland AFC – Match odds

Grayson’s Sunderland are at 3/1 for a win, but we do not expect an away win. Sunderland are an unknown entity in the Championship away games after having been out of the league for several years, but the club’s overall away form is poor. Sunderland could only muster three wins and a draw in the away matches last season. Norwich City were the third best team in the Championship 16/17 season after picking up 49 points from 23 home games. A number of the Norwich’s summer signings featured in the opening game, and they are expected to get better in the coming weeks. Our preview is confident about a win for Norwich, and it is placed at 10/11 with William Hill.

Norwich City FC vs Sunderland AFC – Correct Score odds

Norwich finished last season with a flourish in terms of scoring goals. The team created several good opportunities in the opening game against Fulham, and are likely to score more in front of the home fans. The 3-5-2 formation provides excellent flexibility to exploit opposition weaknesses, and Sunderland are poor in terms of scoring goals. The lack of concentration at the back can be exploited by Norwich. Our correct score prediction is to go with a Norwich City 2-1 win, which is available at 8/1 with BetVictor.

Norwich City FC vs Sunderland AFC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Even though the attack looks strong on paper, Norwich are likely to let in a few goals. Sunderland created several opportunities in the opening game and might be capable of scoring at least once. Our total goals prediction is to go with over 2.5 goals, which is placed at 1/1 with PaddyPower.

Norwich City FC vs Sunderland AFC – First Goalscorer odds

Cameron Jerome scored 16 league goals last season, but Nelson Oliveira made a major impact after coming on as a substitute against Fulham. The Portuguese also went on to score the winning goal. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Oliveira at an attractive 23/5 with Unibet.
