The Canaries remain at the top of the table with a five-point advantage over the chasing pack, which primarily includes Leeds United in the second spot.

Betting Tips for the game
Norwich were able to get a crucial 1-0 win over Middlesbrough just after the international break. Tony Pulis’ men were worthy of a victory but Norwich were able to come away with three points thanks to a solo goal from Onel Hernandez.
QPR suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bolton at home. This turned out to be Steve McClaren’s last match in charge of the West London outfit, as he was sacked a day later.
Norwich were able to get a narrow 1-0 win in the reverse fixture against QPR. The Canaries had picked up a 2-0 win over QPR in the last meeting between the two clubs at Carrow Road. Our betting tips and predictions for the game would go with a 2-0 win for Norwich.

QPR are expected to produce a response after the managerial change. The West London outfit have been very poor in terms of finishing off chances. Norwich have been plucking victories even when they have not been playing well and it is a sign of champions. The healthy five-point advantage over Leeds means that Norwich can potentially wrap up the title with a couple of games left. Daniel Farke will be keen on avoiding any disruptions at this stage, as it can potentially allow the likes of Sheffield United into the top two. Our preview would pick a win for Norwich.

Correct Score odds
Norwich have been able to manage only two clean sheets in the last five matches and defending has not been their forte during this period. QPR should come up with an improved performance after the change in management, but a lot has to do with the quality of the players. Norwich have managed a remarkable 15 goals in the last six home matches. Even though nervousness would increase as the end of season approaches, our correct score prediction would go with a 3-1 win for Norwich.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Norwich have been able to manage some big wins over several opponents at home this season. QPR come into the game with a terrible away record and it is difficult to see any improvement on this front with little motivation on offer. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals in this match.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.57[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki remains on course for the Golden Boot title even if he has not scored in his last six games for club and country. The last goal from the Finland international was in the 3-1 away success over Millwall in the first week of March. If there was a game to back the 28-year-old to end his goal drought, it would be a match at Carrow Road. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Pukki.
