However, Wednesday travel to the Carrow Road with little motivation, as they only stand an outside chance of finishing in the play-offs. Our preview would go with a victory for Norwich.

Correct Score odds
Norwich have been able to register under 1.5 goals only once in the last six league outings, but there has been a general decline in the goalscoring prowess from the team. Wednesday, though, contributed little in the game against Leeds and there might not be any difference in this match. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-0 win for the Norwich.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Norwich have been able to come up with over 2.5 goals in six out of the last eight home games, but recent form from the team has not been so great. Due to fresh uncertainty about winning the title, Norwich may try to play safe. Wednesday are also poor going forward and our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki came up with the equaliser against Wigan during the weekend, and this helped him move up to 27 league goals for the campaign. The Finn remains three goals ahead of Tammy Abraham in the race to finish as the Championship top scorer this season. Pukki came up with the opening goal and a brace in the reverse fixture against Wednesday. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Teemu Pukki.
