Norwich City welcome Brentford to Carrow Road for this weekend’s Championship showdown. The Canaries have picked up back-to-back league wins coming into this game and this sees them in the playoff positions with a two-point gap to the top-two places. Brentford, meanwhile, are yet to win since the departure of manager Dean Smith and their lean run has dropped them six points off the playoff spots. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich picked up their second win on the bounce as they beat Aston Villa by a 2-1 scoreline at home. Jordan Rhodes starred for the Canaries with a brace in the second half of the encounter.
Brentford went winless for the seventh game on the trot, as they suffered a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Preston North End. The visitors have now picked up just four points from the previous seven matches.
Norwich’s previous encounter versus Brentford was at Griffin Park in January where they picked up a 1-0 win. The last meeting at Carrow Road saw Brentford come up triumphs by a 2-1 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Norwich win.

Brentford are 3.10 for the win but this result seems improbable with their current run of form. Brentford have failed to secure a victory since mid-September and the lean patch has dropped them from the top-two to the bottom half of the standings. In the same period, Norwich have made an upheaval with five victories and they should come into this game with confidence to prevail. Our preview would go for a Norwich win.

Norwich City vs Brentford draw odds: 3.30
Brentford draw odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
Norwich’s form has been impressive since last month and they have managed 10 points from the last five matches. Brentford have simply struggled for form and they have attained just one-fifth of the points tally acquired by the hosts. Norwich have a clear advantage in terms of the momentum but we are anticipating Brentford to at least score once. Our correct score prediction fancies a Norwich 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Norwich have recently conceded early in games but they have managed to claim the victory with a couple of 2-1 scores. Brentford are capable of finding the scoresheet with league top-scorer Neal Maupay in their ranks. Our total goals prediction fancies more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has stood out in the Brentford ranks this term and he has already contributed 11 goals from just 12 appearances. Moreover, the Frenchman has been an expert at finding the opening goal and he has done so in seven of the eight league matches in which he has scored. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Maupay to find the breakthrough once more.
