In a sentence: In this Championship preview, we will be looking at the league fixture between 23rd-placed Sunderland and mid-table Norwich City on Tuesday evening.

Last time: The Black Cats were 3-1 winners back in August at Carrow Road in the reverse fixture.

This time: Sunderland are 2/1 to win at home, the draw is at 12/5 and Norwich are favourites at 13/8.

You might remember: The last time Norwich beat Sunderland at home was back in 2014, when they were 2-1 winners against this week’s opponents in the Premier League. Goals from Russell Martin, Steven Whittaker and Nathan Redmond sealed the three points on that day for the Canaries.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Sunderland host Norwich in the Championship on Tuesday, with the Black Cats plummeting towards a second successive relegation

Sunderland look set for a second consecutive relegation, being seven points off survival with just five games left in the season. They have won just once in their last 13 games and are without a win in their last six home games in the league.

As for Norwich, they have been very disappointing away from home this season. They have not won an away game since January and have conceded nine goals in their last three away games, four goals being conceded twice in two of those three. Given that, the draw at 12/5 is one of our Championship predictions for this game.

Sunderland have not kept a clean sheet since January and have the worst defensive record in the league. Norwich to win the game at 13/8 is our football prediction here given how poor Sunderland have been, and Norwich will be confident following their 3-1 over Aston Villa. Sunderland have won six games all season and their confirmation of being relegated looks ever closer, which won’t help them here.

Norwich -1 in the handicap market at 9/2 is another of our football predictions for this one. Norwich should be confident of scoring goals against this Sunderland side so those odds look good value here. Sunderland looked better against Leeds and Norwich’s away record might help Sunderland’s cause, so the Norwich win and both teams to score at 21/5 is one of our free football betting tips in this game.

Both teams to score at 6/7 is another one of our football predictions for today, and has resulted in four of Norwich’s last five games and three of Sunderland’s last three league games. Neither side keep many clean sheets so both should be able to breach the other’s defence.

Match Summary

1

Look out for:

Norwich to score over 1.5 goals at 6/4, which is one of our football predictions for this game. Sunderland’s defence is one of the worst in England’s top four leagues and Norwich scored three against Villa at the weekend so should be confident of bagging at least a couple.

2

We fancy:

Norwich to win at 13/8. Simply put, those odds are too good to not take. Norwich have not been consistent this season but are a team that are capable of much better than 12th. Plenty of talent and against a Sunderland side who are all but confirmed for relegation, Norwich should be looking for three points here.

3

It's a long shot, but:

Norwich to win 3-1 at 20/1 looks like one of the most profitable football score predictions here. The Canaries should score a few but cannot seem to keep clean sheets so this could be worth a punt.
