Norwich City are at Carrow Road for Saturday’s league meeting against Wigan Athletic. The hosts have found form since the international break with three straight victories and this sees them within two points off the playoff positions. Wigan, on the other hand, have exceeded their expectations on their Championship comeback and they are fifth in the table. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Norwich made it three league wins on the bounce last weekend as they clinched a 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on the road. They also progressed beyond the League Cup third round in midweek after beating League One Wycombe Wanderers by a 4-3 score.

Wigan bagged their second straight Championship triumph after beating Bristol City by a 1-0 scoreline at home. Nick Powell starred for the Latics by bagging the sole goal of the game in the 52nd minute.

Norwich’s most recent clash against Wigan was at the DW Stadium in February 2017 and it ended in a 2-2 draw. The last meeting at Carrow Road in 2016 saw the Canaries run out 2-1 victors. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a home win for Norwich.

Match odds

Wigan are priced at 3.10 for a third straight league win but the outcome appears doubtful with their poor run on their travels. Wigan have looked a different opposition away from home this term with just three points from four matches and this should play into the hands of Norwich, who are in sparkling form with four successive wins across all competitions. Our preview fancies a Norwich win.

Norwich City vs Wigan Athletic draw odds: 3.30

Wigan Athletic win odds: 3.10

Correct Score odds

Norwich come into the game on the back of successive away triumphs but their home form has been patchy with just six points from four matches. Nonetheless, they are better equipped than Wigan, who have picked up points against only Stoke on the road. The Latics have failed to score in each of their previous two outings. Our correct score prediction fancies a Norwich 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Norwich have kept clean sheets in two of their four home matches this term and both of those have resulted in two or less goals. We are anticipating a similar outcome this weekend with Wigan, who have drawn blank in their last two away matches. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Teemu Pukki has been in superb form for Norwich since returning from the international break and he has bagged the first goal in each of the club’s previous three matches. Moreover, he has impressed with his shot accuracy with every other attempt finding the scoresheet. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Pukki.
