Norwich City host Stoke at the Carrow Road looking to extend their wonderful streak of late. Norwich are into the play-offs after an incredible run of four wins in the last five. Stoke City find themselves in the mid-table places after having only managed two wins in six. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Norwich were able to hold a Derby County to a 1-1 draw, although the Canaries came extremely close to getting an away win. Daniel Farke’s men are now unbeaten in six league matches.
Stoke City came up with a solid performance to beat Bolton 2-0 at the Bet365 stadium. This was the first win for the Potters since beating Swansea at home in the middle of September.
The Bet365 Stadium hosted the recent meeting between Stoke and Norwich back in January 2016. Stoke were able to get a 3-1 win on that occasion, and they were able to hold Norwich to a 1-1 draw in the last visit to the Carrow Road. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a victory for Norwich.

Stoke City are given odds of 3.10 to win the match. Yet, we would not pick this option considering the away struggles for Stoke, who are yet to win on the road in five attempts. Furthermore, the Potters also have a disappointing record at Carrow Road with their last victory on this ground coming back in 2008 when they were last seen in the Championship. Norwich have confidence after picking four wins in five. They did come extremely close to getting a fifth consecutive league victory before being held by Derby. Our preview would back a win for Norwich even if they have managed just one home win over Stoke in four attempts.

Norwich City vs Stoke City draw odds: 3.30
Stoke City win odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
Stoke City have conceded more than two goals per game on an average on the road. Even though the club kept a second clean sheet at home in the last three games, it is a different story with regards to their away performances. Norwich have managed three shutouts in the last four league matches at Carrow Road. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Norwich 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Stoke have the ability to score on the road as they have demonstrated with a brilliant return of eight goals in the five away matches so far, but they have been extremely poor at the back with a string of high-scoring matches. Norwich may be defensively solid but they are likely to struggle against Stoke’s physical approach. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki has been a constant menace in opposition’s half and the 28-year-old is Norwich’s top scorer with five league goals. Even though he has been unable to score in his last two games, the form of the attacking midfielder has been exceptional. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Pukki.
