Championship leaders Norwich City are at Carrow Road for the weekend’s league meeting against Bolton Wanderers. The Canaries have been in prime form since early October and a run of eight unbeaten games sees them top of the standings. Bolton, however, have experienced the exact opposite in terms of results and they are now in the drop zone with only Ipswich Town behind them. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich continued their unbeaten streak in the Championship last weekend after bagging a 3-1 triumph over Rotherham United. Daniel Farke’s side have now secured seven wins from the previous eight league matches.
Bolton failed to pick up a win for the 10th game on the bounce after settling for a 1-1 draw against Wigan Athletic. The visitors have managed just three points during their winless streak which began in October.
Norwich’s recent meeting against Bolton was in their homeground in February which witnessed a share of the spoils after a 0-0 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect Norwich to continue their dominance at the top.

Bolton are offered tempting odds of 10.00 for the win and this suggests that they face a hefty task of getting anything out of the game at Carrow Road. Since September, Bolton have struggled to pick up a single win on their travels and this has come about from an attack front which has simply misfired. Norwich are on a four-match winning run at Carrow Road, and our preview predicts a solid victory for the hosts.

Norwich City vs Bolton Wanderers draw odds: 4.75
Bolton Wanderers win odds: 10.00
Correct Score odds
Norwich are currently on a four-match winning run in their home turf and they have netted 10 goals during this period. However, their defensive showing has been average with just one clean sheet in those matches. In comparison, Bolton have netted just twice in their last four away trips where they have failed to secure a single win and based on this statistic, the Canaries should expect a comfortable triumph with the shutout. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Norwich 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Norwich are likely to dominate the proceedings this weekend but this may not necessarily result in a score fest. Bolton may be on an eight-match winless run on the road but seven of those have produced less than three goals with 2-0 being the common score. Our total goals prediction would back less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki has been Norwich’s main man upfront this campaign and he has already netted 11 goals in the Championship. Among those, six have come from his previous five appearances and he remains a strong candidate to open the scoring with a shot accuracy of nearly 70%. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Pukki.
