Norwich v Ipswich Prediction & Betting Tips – 18th February 201814th February 2018 / lee
Norwich v Ipswich Championship, 18th February 12.00pm
It is the second East-Anglian derby of the season on Sunday from the Championship and it couldn’t be tighter between the two of them. They head into the clash at Carrow Road level on points in the league with Ipswich just a place above the Canaries on goal difference. Of the two of them though it is Norwich who are carrying slightly the better form at the moment.
Norwich v Ipswich Betting Odds*
Norwich 3/4, Draw 5/2, Ipswich 4/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 4:21 p.m.)
Norwich News and Form
The Canaries are W5 D2 L1 in their last eight league games which has been a really good return from them. They are back on point defensively as well with five clean sheets taken in that sequence. They have alternated between a win and loss in their last five home games in the Championship though which leaves them with a W5 D5 L5 record this season. This is likely to be a tight game and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.).Norwich have scored sixteen and have conceded sixteen goals at Carrow Road this season and they have netted in each of their last seven on home soil so there is a decent chance of them getting something out of this. In the William Hill correct score market a Norwich 1-0 looks a decent proposition at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.). 75% of the goals that they have come up with on home soil this season have been in the second half of matches so it is well worth considering a half-time draw or even a draw/Norwich half time/ full-time option for the derby.
Ipswich News and Form
The Tractor Boys are W2 D2 L1 in their last five league outings now and they have been struggling for wins really since just before Christmas having taken only the two in their last nine league matches. Away from home the Tractor Boys are only W5 D2 L8 for the season and have taken one win in their last five away from Portman Road. That win did come in their last road game though as they won out at Sunderland 2-0. That leaves them with back to back clean sheets in the league and with three in their last five. That again will likely help keep this to a low scoring game and both teams not to score at William Hill is up at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 12th, 2018 at 5:21 p.m.). Ipswich have scored nineteen goals on their travels this season but have been losing at half time in seven of their fifteen road games. They have managed a clean sheet in just 13% of their away fixtures. Martyn Waghorn and Joe Garner are their joint top goalscorer this season in the league with ten each.
Norwich v Ipswich Head to Head
Norwich took a 1-0 win at Portman Road earlier this season and that leaves them undefeated in their last nine games against the Tractor Boys in all competitions now (W6 D3). Six of the last seven East-Anglian debris have ended under 2.5 goals so these are generally pretty tight affairs. Norwich are unbeaten in their last seven home games at Carrow Road against their rivals in all competitions with a W4 D3 record in that sequence.
Who will win – Norwich v Ipswich Predictions
Norwich just have the edge in form at the moment of the two and with home soil and a good head to head advantage over the Tractor Boys then this should add up to a narrow home win for the Canaries.
