Ipswich vs Norwich prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Ipswich to win

  • Ipswich’s stunning return to the Championship has seen them move into second with 51 points with only two losses on the board
  • Ipswich are also on a sensational four-game winning run, beating playoff hopefuls like Watford, Middlesbrough and Coventry City in this period

We have also decided to back Ipswich because of how Norwich has now let in 37 goals in just 21 games, which is the most for those sitting outside of the relegation zone in the Championship. What’s more, the Tractor Boys have also now won 16 games from the 21 outings.

For more football betting tips on this game, check out the over 2.5 goals alongside our Ipswich Town vs Norwich City betting tips.

Ipswich are one of the highest-scoring teams in England this season, and with 45 going in form just 21 games, no team in the Championship has more. What’s more, Norwich’s dismal record of 37 goals let in is one of the worst defensive records in the country, but with 37 also scored of their own, they have shown goalscoring capabilities too.

Odds are currently at 4/9 (1.44) for over 2.5 goals once more, which gives an implied probability of 69.2%.

Player to Watch: Conor Chaplin

Although there are a bunch of names to pick from involving Ipswich and their incredible goalscoring form, Conor Chaplin leads the way with 13 goal involvements so far. 

This has seen Ipswich's #10 rack up five assists and eight goals from 45 shots, and he is well on his way to putting together a fantastic argument for the league’s best player award.
