Ipswich Town vs Norwich City top free betting tips
Ipswich welcomes fierce rivals Norwich to Portman Road for what is sure to be an exciting match in the Championship. Ipswich are on a run of four wins in a row and currently sits second in the table, ten points clear of third-placed Leeds United. This will be the first derby between the two sides since February 2019 so a match both fans will be very much looking forward to. The Canaries are in good form themselves having won three and drawn one of their previous five matches but this will be a tough ask for Norwich.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
This game has all the makings of being one of the best league matches this season. Both teams are in great form, which is why we predict that both teams will find the back of the net. Both teams have seen them score in eight of their previous ten fixtures. Anyone who follows Ipswich will know that they are on an incredible run of failing to score in a match just twice since February last season.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Over 2.5 goals is our next prediction. Recent meetings are something that we will not go off due to the previous match being almost five years ago but looking at recent form for both teams, over 2.5 goals is very likely. In Ipswich's previous ten matches, 2.5 goals or more have been scored with a 2-0 defeat to West Brom and a 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough being the only two matches to fail to reach that. Three of Norwich's previous four matches have seen 2.5 goals or more.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Ipswich Town
Our final prediction sees us go with a 2-1 victory for Ipswich Town. Ipswich are in incredible form this season and it will take something special to stop Kieran Mckenna's men. Norwich are a good side but with Ipswich having the momentum with them plus home advantage, we can only see this match going one way.
