Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Abraham has been a key man for Villa goals this season, but strike partner Jonathan Kodjia has also netted four times in the Championship this season.

Like the young Englishman, he is worth keeping an eye on in your football predictions for this game and is 12/5 to score anytime with bet365.

2 We fancy:

With a new manager at the helm, Villa look like riding a wave of positivity for the coming weeks. Indeed, they began life under Dean Smith with victory over Swansea City.

They should edge this one, despite Norwich’s good recent form, and a 2-1 away win is a profitable football score prediction. It comes in at 10/1 with Ladbrokes.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Villa beat Norwich 4-2 last season, in a game that included a memorable hat trick from midfielder Conor Hourihane. 

The Republic of Ireland international has only netted twice this season, but if you fancy history repeating itself in your football bet tips and predictions in this midweek round up, he is at 19/5 with William Hill to score anytime.

One to Watch: Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham has already featured heavily in Villa’s Championship previews this season, with four goals to his name. The Chelsea loanee is expected to continue that form in this round of Championship predictions, at a price of 2/1 with Sky Bet, to score anytime against Norwich.

Norwich City vs Aston Villa Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Kodjia add to his four Championship goals for Villa this season?

Dean Smith’s arrival at Aston Villa comes with a very specific brief of getting the club into the Championship’s top six and returning to the Premier League in as short a time as possible.

The early signs under the former Brentford boss look positive, with the negativity from the end of Steve Bruce’s reign banished by a win at the weekend.

They have real strength in attacking areas, and Smith will need to harness that to drive them up the table, starting with this Championship preview.

Norwich City have looked good in recent weeks, with just one loss in their last seven Championship games, but the temptation to go for Villa is too strong in this one.

The hosts also carry a real goal threat, through the likes of Timm Klose and Mario Vucanic, so they should get on the scoresheet.

With that in mind, a both teams to bet bet is a good football prediction in this clash, available at 4/5 with Betfair.

Predicted Score: Norwich City 1 - 2 Aston Villa
