Daniel Farke has urged caution from his Norwich City team as they take on Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road this weekend. A string of poor results has left Norwich concerned about the likelihood of winning the Championship title. The team only has a three-point advantage over Sheffield United with two games left. Blackburn are set to finish mid-table and they have been playing without pressure of late. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich City were involved in a fourth consecutive draw after Stoke City picked up a 2-2 result at the Bet365 Stadium. This was the third 2-2 draw in these games and it has wiped out Norwich’s substantial lead over the chasing pack.
Blackburn Rovers were able to manage a 2-0 win over relegated Bolton at the Ewood Park. This turned out to be the fourth successive victory for Blackburn.
The previous meeting between Blackburn and Norwich produced a 1-0 win for the Canaries at Ewood Park with Teemu Pukki grabbing a late winner. Lucas Joao came up with a brace for Blackburn in their recent visit to Carrow Road, which finished as a 2-2 draw. Norwich, however, played with 10 men for most of the game. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a draw for Norwich.

Farke has seen his team dropped from a position of strength in the Championship table and two bad results could end Norwich’s hopes of a first Championship title since the 2003-04 season. Norwich have dropped points against much weaker opposition in recent weeks while Blackburn have been going through a string of positive results – undoubtedly due to less pressure on the team. Our preview would pick a stalemate, as Norwich have not been convincing in recent weeks.

Norwich City vs Blackburn Rovers odds: 5.25
Blackburn win odds: 8.00
Correct Score odds
Blackburn have come up with close to 2 goals per game on an average in recent away matches, as Tony Mowbray’s men have been scoring goals with ease. Blackburn have scored in each away game in 2019 and this represents a problem for Norwich, who have just two clean sheets in the last eight. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-2 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 3.5 goals in four out of the last five matches for Norwich City, whose defence has taken a beating of late. The last eight away matches for Blackburn have been with more than 2.5 goals. Since both teams have a lot of confidence going forward, our correct score prediction would back over 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.53[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Blackburn have opened the scoring in the last four games and they have gone on to win these matches. Danny Graham has come up goals in the last two away matches for Blackburn. Graham is already experiencing his best ever campaign on a personal level after grabbing 15 league goals and three assists. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Danny Graham.
