Norwich City are up against Preston at Carrow Road still awaiting their first win of the Championship 2018-19 campaign. Norwich have only managed a solitary point so far in the season, as manager Daniel Farke struggles to induce some positivity into the team that finished 14th in the table last season. Preston narrowly missed out on the top six last season, but they have had a mediocre start with just four points from first three matches. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich conceded a late goal to lose 2-1 against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. This was the second consecutive league defeat for the Canaries.
Preston were held to a 2-2 draw by Stoke City in the recent match at the Deepdale Stadium. As a result, Preston have been unable to build on the opening day win over QPR.
Both meetings between Preston and Norwich in the 2017-18 season finished as a draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Even though Norwich are at a price of just 2.40 to win the match, we will not choose this option. Preston are also not a great pick at just 3.40. Both clubs have been involved in a string of stalemates – 50% of the recent meetings have all finished as draws. Both clubs have been unable to make much of an impact so far in the campaign. Our preview would go with a draw, which is at an attractive price.

Norwich City win odds: 2.40
Preston win odds: 3.20
Correct Score odds
Preston have had just three goals so far this season and they have conceded the same figure. Norwich games have been much more entertaining with goals at both ends. Norwich boss Farke will be especially pleased with the performance of Jordan Rhodes in the early season. However, the games between Preston and Norwich have largely been low on goals and our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent matches for Preston and Norwich have been filled with goals but the same cannot be said about games when these two teams come up against each other. Even though the defence has been a let down for Norwich with eight goals conceded already, they have been able to make do with an attack that has Jordan Rhodes in good form. Still, our total goals prediction would not go beyond 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Jordan Rhodes has been in fine form with the opening goal for Norwich in his last two Championship appearances. Regarded as one of the finest forwards in this division, Rhodes is looking to build on his outstanding record against Preston – four goals in five games. Our first goalscorer prediction will back the 28-year-old.
