Norwich v Sheff Wed Championship betting preview and tips
Norwich City are going to be promoted to the Premier League this season, with the Canaries seven points clear of third-placed Sheffield United with just four games remaining.
It’s possible that they will claim automatic promotion by winning against Sheffield Wednesday on Good Friday, although we think that Daniel Farke’s side might have to wait a little longer to seal the deal.
Norwich have been the surprise package in the Championship this season, collecting eighty-six points from forty-two games played in the English second flight, with the Norfolk team boasting the best home and away form in the division.
However, Friday’s match could be closer than the odds suggest and we’re getting to the stage where a point isn’t a bad outcome for Norwich who have effectively kept the other teams in the division at arm’s length at this juncture.
There have been seven games at Carrow Road where City have failed to beat their opponents and they will be up against a Sheffield Wednesday side who look a good deal stronger under Steve Bruce.
While the Owls are unlikely to make the play-offs this term, Bruce has got a tune out of a squad of players who looked more likely to be relegated than promoted a few months ago.
Wednesday went to Elland Road on Saturday and were narrowly beaten by a single goal, with the Owls thwarting Leeds for the most part and they’re capable of keeping things similarly tight in this encounter.
We’re happy to side with the visitors on the Asian Handicap at a shade of odds-against, with Wednesday needing to lose by a single goal in order to get our money back, while a draw or away win will see a profit with this bet.
