Norwich City can maintain their position at the top of the table when they face a high-flying Bristol City side at Carrow Road on Saturday. Daniel Farke’s team have recently built up momentum with regular wins. Bristol, meanwhile, have been perfect with their league proceedings since the turn of the year and this form has propelled them to the final playoff place with two games in hand over Norwich. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football betsand betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich bagged their third victory in four league matches last weekend where they bagged a comfortable 4-0 win at Bolton Wanderers. Teemu Pukki continued his bright form with a goal in either half.
Bristol are on a seven-match winning league streak after recently beating Queens Park Rangers by a 2-1 scoreline. However, they failed to sustain the good form in the FA Cup fifth round where Wolverhampton Wanderers beat them 1-0.
The previous meeting between the sides was at Ashton Gate in December which finished in a 2-2 draw. The last clash at Carrow Road ended in a goalless stalemate. Our betting tips and predictions favour a home triumph.

Bristol are priced at 3.60 for an eighth-straight league win but we are not backing this result. Bristol may have enjoyed a purple patch since the start of the year but the vast majority of those games have been against teams in the bottom end of the standings. Predictably, they should face a tougher challenge on the road to Norwich where the hosts can be fancied to outscore them. Our preview is to go with a Norwich win.

Norwich City vs Bristol City draw odds: 3.50
Bristol City win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
Both Norwich and Bristol have scored in each of the previous five matches but the former have fared better with five goals more than their counterparts. The hosts may not keep a shutout amid their occasional vulnerability at the back but they are certainly capable of making the difference upfront against anyone with Pukki in their ranks. Our correct score would back a Norwich 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Norwich have scored freely in front of their supporters and this has contributed to a minimum of three goals in nine of the previous 10 matches in their stadium. This was the outcome in their reverse league meeting against Bristol. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki recently jumped to the top of the Championship scoring charts after his brace against Bolton last weekend. The Finn has been in sublime form with goals in each of the previous six matches while opening the scoresheet on two occasions. Our first goalscorer prediction fancies Pukki to continue his sparkling form.
