Norwich vs Burnley: Our top betting predictions

Norwich's mini resurgence under David Wagner is going to get a real test this weekend as they host the league leaders, Burnley. Will the Canaries still be singing at full time? Find out with our Norwich vs Burnley match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Burnley to win

We begin our predictions for this match by backing Burnley to win. Sure, Norwich have won back to back games but this is a real step up with Burnley looking very much the real deal at the league's summit. On top of that, Norwich's home form has been nothing short of horrific as they have just one win in 10 and, notably, six defeats. Burnley meanwhile are unbeaten in seven whilst they've also won 10 of their last 12 – the only defeat in that time being a cup loss to Man United. Burnley also edge the head to head record with two wins and a draw from their last four clashes.

Expecting a few goals

Our next tip for this game comes from the total goals market and we are opting for this encounter going over the 2.5 goals marker. Norwich have gone goal crazy in their last couple of games with a total of 10 goals across their past two outings. Burnley meanwhile aren't exactly shy of goals either. They've seen three of their last five matches end north of that all important 2.5 cut off with a game average of 2.6 goals per match. With Norwich likely to take an attacking approach in this game, it really could be a goal filled corker.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Norwich odds: 11/7 (2.57) – 39%

Draw odds: 7/3 (3.33) – 30%

Burnley odds: 12/7 (2.71) – 37%

Rewind a couple of weeks and there is no way on Earth that the match result markets would be priced up as detailed above. Norwich's recent injection though has clearly changed the bookies minds and they're now favourites. For us, that puts huge value on the Burnley win option. Other betting offers likely to appeal are in the both teams to score ‘yes' option and, as we've opted for above, the over 2.5 goals option. Both comes with odds on prices but given form still look reasonable from a value perspective.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Norwich vs Burnley

Norwich

Norwich have improved a lot since switching manager but still need a big performance at home. This could be the perfect opportunity and we foresee an all out attacking line up from David Wagner. Isaac Hayden and Przemyslaw Placheta remain out with injuries.

Predicted lineup – Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Omobamidele, Giannoulis, Sargent, McLean, Sara, Pukki, Hernandez, Dowell

Burnley

Burnley made seven changes to their XI to face Ipswich, ironically Norwich's rivals, in the FA Cup last week. This week we'll see them revert to a stronger XI with the likes of Lyle Foster and Darko Churlinov possibly coming into the thoughts of Vincent Kompany.

Predicted lineup – Muric, Roberts, Beyer, Taylor, Maatsen, Cullen, Bastien, Brownhill, Tella, Churlinov, Foster

Player to watch

There will be a lot of eyes on Burnley's new striker Lyle Foster in this match. The January signing raised a few eyebrows in January owing to his undisclosed transfer, which is believed to be around a fee of £11m. The South African international will want to hit the ground running to start justifying that price tag – especially with lots of competition in the forward areas of the Burnley squad.
