Norwich City hope to restart their winning sequence when they host struggling Rotherham at Carrow Road this weekend. Norwich’s lead at the top of the table has been cut down to just one point with Leeds now occupying the second spot. Rotherham remain in the bottom half with only three points separating them from the relegation zone. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich were involved in a frustrating goalless draw with Hull City at the KCOM Stadium. This was the first time Daniel Farke’s men have failed to score in almost 2 months.
The home game against QPR witnessed Rotherham being held to a 2-2 draw. QPR came up with an equaliser – including one late in the game – twice in the match to prevent Rotherham from getting a home win.
Rotherham picked up a 2-1 win over Norwich when the two teams recently met each other. This game at the New York Stadium was preceded by the meeting at Carrow Road where Norwich picked up a 3-1 win. Our betting tips and prediction expect a draw.

Rotherham are at a great price to win this match, but it is difficult to back a team that is yet to win an away match this season. The last three trips have produced a stalemate for Paul Warne’s men and Norwich’s disappointing performance in the midweek game against Hull City is a reason to pick a draw over a home win. Our preview sees great value in backing a stalemate.

Norwich City win odds: 1.45
Rotherham United win odds: 8.50
Correct Score odds
Norwich had an off day against Hull City with the team only managing four shots on target even while having almost 70% of the ball. Rotherham United have been unable to keep off opponents and this has resulted in the club being unable to put together a winning sequence – even though they are unbeaten in seven matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been plenty of goals in games involving Norwich this season. It is not surprising considering that Norwich are only behind West Brom and Aston Villa in terms of goals scored. Rotherham, though, are at the other end of the table with just 18 goals scored in the 19 games. Our total goals prediction would reflect on the average midweek performance from Norwich and go with under 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki was largely ineffective in the goalless draw at Hull City, but he is the top scorer for Norwich with 10 league goals. The 28-year-old came up with a brace in the last match at Carrow Road and our first goalscorer prediction would back Teemu Pukki.
