Norwich City were out of their depth in the Premier League last season, although the Canaries clearly budgeted for relegation and they now boast one of the strongest squads in the Championship as they look to make an immediate return to the English top flight.

Daniel Farke steered the Canaries to promotion against the betting odds two seasons ago and the German has retained the services of ace marksman Teemu Pukki along with making a raft of new signings that include the impressive Oliver Skipp on loan from Tottenham.

Reasons for Norwich vs Preston Betting Tips

Norwich began their 2020-21 season with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield and it was noticeable that their playing style has changed slightly so that the East Anglian side are more robust from a defensive point-of-view, having previously earned promotion by outscoring opponents.

Preston North End are the visitors to Carrow Road on Saturday and they were also involved in a low-scoring clash in their opener, although Alex Neil’s side were on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline when conceding a late winner to Swansea City and they’ll be determined to make amends.

The Best Norwich vs Preston Predictions

Neil was previously successful in charge of Norwich and will want his team to have a solid defensive base against dangerous attacking players. For this reason, our strongest betting tip is to go for the Under 2.5 Goals betting selection which is trading at a shade of odds-on.

It always feels a bit strange recommending a low goal count for a Norwich match considering their matches over the past two campaigns have generally featured goals, although North End tend to operate from a safety-first perspective and also experience issues finding the net themselves.

Midfielder Daniel Johnson was the top-scoring PNE player last season and we are tipping two goals or less to be scored, with Preston likely to be pleased to get a point on the board.
