Norwich are in a poor shape coming into the game and they have been unable to win the last four matches.

West Brom have home advantage and they have performed well at the Hawthorns this season with just two defeats in 13 matches.

Correct Score odds
Norwich City are at a significant disadvantage in terms of defensive performances as their confidence is very low. Teams have been able to score past Norwich with relative ease in the last few weeks and the Canaries have ended up conceding 12 goals in the last six matches. West Brom find themselves with strengthening at the back during the January transfer window. Our correct score prediction expects a 2-1 win for West Brom.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both teams have the ability to score a fair number of goals in this match while Norwich’s poor defence can help drive up the total goals to beyond 2.5. West Brom have been one of the top scorers in the division and our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.66[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
The absence of Dwight Gayle continues to affect West Brom and place Jay Rodriguez as the important attacking asset. Rodriguez came up with West Brom’s only goal in the loss against Blackburn and his ability to convert from penalties is a crucial reason to go with Rodriguez to score the first goal, according to our first goalscorer prediction.
