Sheffield Wednesday are given a price of 3.00. However, this is not a great price for a team that has lost three consecutive games. Even though Hillsborough Stadium has provided plenty of bad memories for Norwich – with the Canaries losing five out of the last six tips to this ground, Daniel Farke’s men come into the game with a strong run of form that has seen them move just two points behind the table leaders. Wednesday will be low on confidence and they have even failed to win at home in the last two months. Our preview would go with a Norwich win.

Correct Score odds
Norwich have been playing some brilliant football in recent weeks but they have been able to score just seven goals in the last six matches – the same as Sheffield Wednesday. However, it is at the back where Luhukay’s men have been quite disappointing with 12 goals conceded. Games between the two clubs at the Hillsborough Stadium have witnessed no shortage of entertainment and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Norwich.
