Huddersfield vs Norwich: top free betting tips
Huddersfield takes on Norwich City in search of their first victory of the season at John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, 26 August. The Canaries make an appearance in this game after successive victories against Millwall and Queens Park Rangers in Championship and EFL Cup respectively.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Three of the previous five H2H meetings between these two sides have gone Over 2.5 Goals. Huddersfield have found the back of the net nine times in the last five matches in EFL Championship at John Smith’s Stadium. On the other hand, Norwich scored ten goals in just the previous four matches in EFL Championship and EFL Cup. Additionally, the Terriers have allowed eight goals at the back in the same duration. Therefore, we predict this game to feature a total of Over 2.5 Goals.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Norwich’s front line has shown consistency by scoring in all three opening games of the EFL Championship. But the Canaries have been unable to keep a single clean sheet in that course. On the other hand, Huddersfield scored in three of the last four fixtures, allowing goals at the back in all of those games. Furthermore, three of the recent five H2Hs of these two teams at John Smith’s Stadium have finished with BTTS outcomes. Hence, we can expect goals from both ends of the field in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Huddersfield
Huddersfield has managed an average of scoring just one goal per game in the last four fixtures. However, Norwich City have rattled the net twice or more in three games during the same duration. The Canaries have also conceded just one goal in two games during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Huddersfield are on the other end of the spectrum as they allowed multiple goals in two of the previous four matches in the Championship and EFL Cup. Given these statistics, we predict a 1-2 lead for Norwich to retain their winning form.
