Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is incredible that 11 out of the last 12 league encounters at the Carrow Road have ended up with more than 2.5 goals. The goals from Reading may not be exactly flowing in away matches, but Norwich have been able to hit a strong surge of form. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki ended his six-game goal drought for club and country with a brace against QPR during the weekend. Even though he has not opened the scoring for Norwich in almost 2 months, it is hard to disregard Pukki when it comes to expectations about the first goalscorer. The Finn has been able to get 26 league goals – three more than any other player in the Championship this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Pukki.
