Championship leaders Norwich will be looking to make it six wins in a row on the weekend when they make their trip to Rotherham. The Millers are in a big fight for survival as they start the weekend still inside the bottom three. They have however won two of their last three Championship fixtures. Anything out of this game against the Canaries will be huge for them. Read our Rotherham v Norwich betting tips for more.

Rotherham took a 2-1 away win at QPR last weekend to give themselves a big boost of hope in avoiding relegation. That was their second win in their last three games. Rotherham have actually suffered just the one defeat in their last eight games in the Championship (W2 D5), so they have been hard to take them. There are currently running on a three-match undefeated streak of home form drawing against Wigan Sheffield Wednesday before beating Blackburn in their last fixture at the New York stadium.
Rotherham currently are on a good six-match scoring streak on home soil, but they have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last 12 league home games. Of the goals which they have produced a home this season 62% of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Rotherham have opened the scoring in 11 of their league home games this season. Only bottom side Ipswich have a worse defensive record than Rotherham this season in the Championship.
Norwich won 3-1 at home against Rotherham back in December.
The Millers won their last home game against Norwich 2-1 back in January of 2017
Norwich have lost just one of their last 16 games against Rotherham in all competitions
Both teams have scored in each of their last eight meetings
The Canaries are singing a fine tune at the moment with a five-match winning streak going in the Championship. They are holding strong at the top of the table in their push for automatic promotion. They earned a 3-2 home win over Hull in midweek. They have won back-to-back away games at Bolton and Millwall which is part of an overall W9 D7 L2 they have recorded on their travels this season.
The Canaries have averaged 1.9 goals per away game this season and 61% of their away fixtures have ended up going over the 2.5 goals line. Norwich have suffered just the one defeat in their last 16 away games in the Championship. The Canaries are on a 18 match scoring streak in the league, home and away. Norwich have scored at least three goals in three of their last four away fixtures. Norwich have been level at the halftime break in 10 of their 18 away games.
It is hard to see Norwich slipping up in this one. They are in such fantastic form at the moment and even though Rotherham have become very stubborn side to beat, Norwich have enough quality to get another three points in the bag.

Norwich continue to go strong at the top of the Championship, now with a four-match winning streak behind them. Will they be able to keep up their strong momentum for an automatic promotion place at home against Hull in midweek? Read our Norwich v Hull betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 12th, 2019 at 3:35 p.m.)
The Canaries are on a four-match winning streak. They posted a 1-0 home success over Swansea on the weekend. That actually leaves them with six wins in their last seven league games. It was also their third straight win at Carrow Road in the Championship. Norwich hold a W12 D2 L4 home record this season and they have averaged 2.1 goals per home game for the season. The Canaries are unbeaten in five at home in the division (W4 D1).
They have earned a clean sheet in a third of their home fixtures played this season and 67% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Eight of the home wins that Norwich have recorded have been by a one-goal margin. They are currently on a twelve match scoring streak of form at home. Home and away they have scored in each of their last seventeen. Norwich have scored 71% of their home goals this season in the second half of fixtures.
Hull held out for a 0-0 draw at home against Norwich in November
The Tigers are undefeated in three against Norwich (W1 D2)
Norwich have won one of their last five at home against Hull (D3 L1)
Seven of the last eight meetings have gone under 2.5 goals
The Tigers suffered a 3-0 away defeat at Nottingham Forest on the weekend. That snapped a two-match winning streak that they were on. The Tigers are currently at W3 D1 L4 in their last eight league games home and away, so they have been up and down. They have won just the five away games all season (D4 L9) and three of those wins were against sides currently sitting in the bottom seven of the league. Hull are on a four-match losing streak away from home.
The Tigers are winless in five on the road, taking the one point in math sequence. They have averaged just a shade over a goal per away game this season, but 61% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. That is because they have conceded at 1.94 goals per away game on average. They have just the two clean sheets behind them on their travels. Hull have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five away games. Six of the nine away losses that Hull have taken this season have been by a margin of two goals or more.
Norwich have such strong home form going, while the Tigers have been struggling on the road recently. It should make for a routine home success for Norwich in the game. The Canaries to get the win with the clean sheet fits too.

The Canaries are well on the march to the Premier League at the moment. They are sitting top of the Championship and with a hot streak of three straight wins going. Will they be able to drive on as the visiting Swans come for a visit? Read our Norwich v Swansea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 6th, 2019 at 6:14 p.m.)
Norwich are on a three-match winning streak at the moment in the league after taking a win at Millwall last weekend. They are now W5 L1 in their last six league outings. Norwich have scored at least three goals in each of their last six league victories as well. This season Norwich are W11 D2 L4 at home, where they have averaged well over two goals per game. 71% of all Norwich’s home games in the Championship this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Norwich are the top scorers in the division.
The Canaries are undefeated in four at Carrow Road in the Championship currently, winning three of those. They have returned at least two goals now in each of their last nine league home games (W6 D2 L1). Home and away, Norwich have scored in each of their last sixteen league games and in each of their last eleven on home soil. They have bagged 70% of their home goals in the second half of matches. Three points at home on Friday opens up a five-point lead at the top over Leeds.
Norwich were 4-1 winners over Swansea in November
Norwich are unbeaten in five at Carrow Road against Swansea
The away team has scored in just one of the last four meetings
7 of the last 10 meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Swansea earned a 2-0 home win over Bolton last weekend which saw them snap back to back defeats in the division. However, their away form just is not there at the moment. The Swans are on a three-match losing streak on their travels. In nine away games played this season against current top half of the table teams, Swansea have claimed just the one victory. Their form on the road for the Championship campaign reads W5 D4 L8.
The Welsh club have managed only the one win in their last six away from the Liberty Stadium (D1 L1). So it’s certainly not been strong from them. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three league away games as well. That could be problematic in taking on the free-scoring Canaries. Swansea have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last eight away games. Six of their eight away defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin.
Norwich are in great form at the moment and they should be strong enough to claim three points at home against Swansea. The Swans have been having a rough time of things on their travels recently.

Millwall are slipping ever closer to the relegation zone having lost back to back league games. They are now only four points clear of trouble. There is a tough game coming for them on the weekend too as they play host to league leaders Norwich. Read our Millwall v Norwich betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
The Lions have lost back to back league games now and are only the four points above the drop zone. This season at home, Millwall have posted a W6 D6 L5 record. They have failed to pick up a win in any of their last four at the Den having claimed just two points in that sequence. In those four games, Millwall have produced just one goal as well. In total Millwall have averaged 1.2 goals per home game this season, and they have conceded at exactly the same rate.
In their last eight league games, home and away Millwall have produced only the five goals in total, failing to score in four of those eight. Five of the six home wins that Millwall have recorded this season have been by a one-goal margin. Three of their last four league victories, home and away, have been by a 1-0 scoreline. Only four sides in the division have a worse home record than Millwall.
Norwich were 4-3 winners over Millwall earlier this season
Each of the last six meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Norwich have won five of the last six clashes (L1)
Millwall won this corresponding fixture 4-0 last season
Norwich are on fire and the moment as they have produced back-to-back league wins, scoring seven goals in those two matches. Norwich have recorded a W4 L1 record in their last five league outings. Home and away they have lost just one of their last nine league matches. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven games and they have scored at least three in all but one of their last five.
The away record of Norwich this season is W8 D7 L2. Norwich have won all but two of their eight away games this season against sides currently in the bottom half of the table (D2). Norwich are averaging 1.8 goals per away game and 59% of their road fixtures have ended over 2.5 goals. Norwich have scored in each of their last 15 Championship games, home and away. Each of their last seven have ended over 2.5 goals.
Millwall are struggling for goals at the moment and form, while Norwich are having no such problems. This should be a comfortable away three points for the Canaries. They may even be able to pull it off with a clean sheet.

The Canaries head into the weekend in top spot in the Championship so that is what they will be looking to defend. It could be a raucous occasion at Carrow Road as they play host to Bristol City. The visiting Robins are on a seven-match winning streak in the Championship. Read our Norwich v Bristol City betting tips for more.
Bristol City 14/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)
Last weekend Norwich collected a 4-0 away win at Bolton making it three wins in their last four games (L1). That has seen them hold the top spot in the division, but it is a tight race between the top four. Overall this season Norwich are W10 D2 L4 on home soil and they are unbeaten in three there (W2 D1). Overall home and away, Norwich have suffered only the one defeat in their last eight league fixtures, winning four of their last six. The powerful scoring season of Norwich has continued and they average over two goals per game at home.
Each of their last four League wins have seen Norwich score at least three goals in. Each of their last six League outings have ended up going over 3.5 goals. So entertainment could well be on the way. 50% of League matches at Carrow Road this season have gone over 3.5 goals, including the last eight. Norwich are on a 10 match scoring streak at home, and they have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight at home. Of the 34 goals that they have scored on home soil, 24 of those have been after the halftime break. West Brom are the only side to have scored more League goals in the Championship than the Canaries this season.
There was a 2-2 draw between them earlier this season
Norwich are undefeated in seven against the Robins
Three of the last four meetings have ended in a draw
Norwich are unbeaten in three at home against Bristol City (W2 D1)
What can Bristol City come up with in this game? Can they make it eight straight Championship victories? It has been a stunning run from the Robins and in their current seven-match winning streak they have earned a clean sheet in five of those victories. The Robins are currently undefeated in 13 League fixtures. There is nothing amiss with their away form either as they are at W5 D1 in their last six on the road. Each of their last four away wins have been with a clean sheet.
They have been very good defensively this season and Middlesbrough are the only side to have conceded fewer the goals than they have in the division. Bristol City have also scored in 80% of their away matches. They have not produced the most prolific output as they are the second lowest scoring team in the top half of the championship. Bristol City are on a 13 match scoring streak in the League, with each of their last five on the road going under 2.5 goals. They have been level at the break in 10 of their 15 away games this season.
Tough game to call as Bristol City’s away form has been built against sides mostly down in the bottom half of the table. But they do look currently strong enough and confident enough to go and avoid defeat at Carrow Road. The draw appeals in the match outright.

Norwich strengthened their position at the top of the table on the weekend with a good win over rivals Ipswich in the East Anglian derby. Can they push on further as they head out to face Preston? Preston are down in the bottom half of the table but have put together some good form lately. Read our Preston v Norwich betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 10th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
Preston got a good 2-1 away win at Bolton on the weekend, making it a five-match undefeated streak of form for them in the division (W3 D2). So that alone makes this a tricky away game for leaders Norwich. On home soil Preston have drawn each of their last three, their most recent being against playoff hopefuls Derby. Preston’s home record is W5 D7 L3 this season. They have scored pretty well too at Deepdale, averaging 1.9 goals per game there.
Each of Preston’s last three home games have ended up under 2.5 goals. However, 60% of all of their home games have finished above the line, with 53% of league games at Deepdale this season seeing at least four goals in them. Both teams have scored in 80% of Preston’s home games. Whilst Preston are without a win in their last four home games, they have only lost one of their last ten league home fixtures. They have opened the scoring in nine of their fifteen home games.
Norwich were 2-0 winners at home against Preston in August
Norwich are unbeaten in four against North End (W2 D2)
Preston are winless in three Championship home games against Norwich (D1 L2)
Norwich got three points out of a feisty East Anglian derby against Ipswich on the weekend. That is back to back league wins for Norwich now, the Canaries scoring exactly three goals in those two wins. The derby win also pushed Norwich on to a six-match undefeated streak of Championship form. Overall this season they are W7 D7 L1 on their travels this season. They won their last away game, a huge top-two clash against Leeds.
Norwich have averaged 1.7 goals per away game this season. They are currently undefeated in their last thirteen away games, scoring in each of their last five. Norwich have no clean sheet in three on the road. At the half time break, Norwich have been level in nine of their road games. It is well worth noting that they have scored 70% of all their league goals this season in the second half of fixtures. They may need to show some patience against Preston.
The draw actually has some appeal in this one. Preston have been doing alright at home recently. Norwich have played out a draw in two of their last three league away games. We are backing Preston to get a point out of this midweek action.

There is a great East Anglian derby match coming up from the Championship on Sunday as Norwich and Ipswich meet for the second time this season. The two are having very different seasons with Norwich topping the league following last weekend’s action and their rivals Ipswich rock bottom. Read our Norwich v Ipswich betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 6th, 2019 at 11:32 p.m.)
The Canaries made a huge statement last time out with a 3-1 away win at title challengers Leeds. That leaves Norwich undefeated in five league games (W2 D3) and they are on track for an automatic promotion push. They will look to make full advantage of this fixture at home against an Ipswich side who look destined to be playing in League One next season. Norwich are W9 D2 L4 at Carrow Road this season. They have actually come through a tough spell of games having faced all three of the other current top four sides in their last four matches.
Norwich never crumbled in any of those. The Canaries have tallied 31 goals at home this season with 67% of their home games going above 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in each of Norwich’s last seven league matches, home and away combined. Norwich are on a nine-match scoring streak at home, actually scoring at least two in each of their last seven there. They are without a clean sheet in seven home games though.
There was a 1-1 draw between them at Portman Road earlier this season
Four of the last five meetings have ended in a 1-1 draw
Norwich are unbeaten in the last eleven East Anglian derby games
Just one of the last nine meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Ipswich are in a heap of trouble at the foot of the table. They lost 1-0 against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, which was their third straight league defeat. The Tractor Boys are W1 D1 L6 in their last eight league fixtures. Home and away combined this season they have taken just the three league wins, only one of those have been away (D2 L12). Part of their problem has been putting the ball in the back of the net.
The Tractor Boys have scored just the nine goals on their travels, seven of those actually appearing in the first half of matches. Ipswich have conceded at an average of just over two goals per road game. Ipswich haven’t managed a single away clean sheet this season. It gets worse. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last fourteen away games. Needless to say, they have the worst away record in the Championship.
Ipswich are having such a rough time of things that they aren’t likely to keep the marauding Canaries at bay. Norwich have the goals in them to ease past a defence which has conceded at least two goals in all but one away game this season. Norwich to win to nil.

This is a heavyweight duel in the Championship promotion race. Second-placed Norwich will be looking to further close the gap on league leaders Leeds. Sheffield United have the chance to pull level on points with the Canaries. Read our Norwich v Sheffield United betting tips for more.
Sheffield United 9/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 23rd, 2019 at 11:31 p.m.)
Norwich got back to winning ways last weekend by getting a 3-1 home success over Birmingham. That snapped a run of four winless matches they were on (D3 L1). Heading into the weekend Norwich re aone point of the lead. Norwich’s home record this season is W9 D1 L4 so it has been strong stuff from them at Carrow Road. Norwich have scored 72% of their home goals this season in the second half of matches. The Canaries have averaged over two goals per home game this season and 50% of their home games have made it over 3.5 goals.
Norwich have taken a win to nil in 29% of their home league fixtures this season. Actually looking at the bigger picture 10 of the 15 league victories that Norwich have recorded the season have all been by a one-goal margin only. Norwich have scored in each of their last eight home games but they have been struggling at the back as they have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last six on home turf. Just three times this season at home have Norwich been leading at the halftime break in fixtures. Norwich have scored at least two goals in each of their last six home league games.
Sheffield United took a 2-1 victory over Norwich when they met back in August.
That is back-to-back wins (by the same scoreline) that the Blades have taken over the Canaries.
Norwich have won five of their last six home games against Sheffield United (L1)
Both teams have scored in just four of their last nine meetings
This could be quite important game for Shepherd United in terms of making up ground on the top two. They will move level on 53 points with Norwich if they get the win. Last weekend United lost 1-0 at Swansea which snapped a good run of four straight Championship wins that they had recorded. Will they be able to pick themselves up from that? The loss against Swansea also snapped a five-match unbeaten streak of form that they were on away from home in the league(W3 D2). Overall this season Shefford United have scored 22 away goals, conceding 16.
In 29% of their away games, the Blades have earned a clean sheet and only twice have they been losing at the halftime break in away games. Hanging over them is their away form against the better sides in the division. They have played four games against teams who are currently sat inside of the top nine this season. Sheffield United have lost each of those four away games and across them, the Blades only managed one goal in total. Overall this season Sheffield United have posted a W7 D2 L5 record on their travels.
Norwich are the ones with the most appeal in this one to get what is likely to be only a one-goal margin victory on the board. Sheffield United just haven’t quite delivered the goods when it comes to their bigger away games this season. Norwich home form is impressive and the Canaries can sneak the three points.
