Match Summary

2 We fancy:

The double chance of Norwich or draw is 3/10 with Paddy Power.

Admittedly, that may be a little shorter than we would normally go for, but the game is very open but Wigan have lost their last two away games means the result is more likely to swing Norwich’s way, but this bet just adds a little extra insurance

One to Watch: Nick Powell

The former Manchester United midfielder/striker has taken to life at Wigan with aplomb and is easily the sides stand out player.

Powell has already found the back of the net four times this season including hitting the winner against Bristol City on Friday night and our football predictions make him out to be one of the key players again this weekend.

Still only 24-years of age, Powell is one of the reasons why both teams to score at 8/13 is one of the best football betting tips for this game.

Norwich City vs Wigan Athletic Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Jordan Rhodes add to his two goals for Norwich?

Two of the Championships in-form sides meet at Carrow Road on Saturday for a game that should be packed to the brim with action. Both sides come into the game with league wins under their belts and perhaps both have surprised many with the way the way the two managers have gotten their sides playing. With little to choose between the two, momentum will be key as we highlight in this Championship preview with neither side able to run away with the game.

Norwich are 23/20 to win which looks like being one of the best football betting tips for the weekend. The Canaries are unbeaten in their last five league games including that superb 1-0 home win over Middlesbrough making Farke’s men a steal at 23/20.

Wigan are 11/5 to win and it is unlikely you will get a better price for a side who has won their last two games. However, the Latics have lost their two last away games and in our Championship predictions for this game, we think there is better value elsewhere.

The draw is 5/2 and it would be wise not to rule that out as one of the better football score predictions. The last time the two met a draw was the result back in February 2017 although Wigan has only drawn once all season.

Over 2.5 goals is 4/5. When these two meet, there is often goals, so much so, in fact, the during the 2016/17 season the pair shared seven goals in their two meetings. Goals is today’s football prediction, at least three anyway.

Both teams to score is 4/5. Those not fancying the over goals market or want a little something else may opt for both teams to score. You have to go back to the end of August for the last time Norwich failed to score and Wigan has scored in three of their last four.

Predicted Score: Norwich City 2 - 1 Wigan Athletic
