Today's Betting Tips for Luton vs Norwich

Two clubs in the grip of inconsistent form collide at Kenilworth Road on Boxing Day when Luton host Norwich. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Luton Double Chance

Luton upset the odds to beat Norwich 1-0 at Carrow Road earlier in the campaign and the Hatters are priced generously to avoid defeat when they host the Canaries on home soil for the return fixture on Boxing Day. Luton have lost only one of their last nine matches at Kenilworth Road and their ability to dig out results on home turf makes them a very backable outfit here. Norwich were beaten 2-0 by Blackburn in their last assignment and more disappointment could be in the works for the playoff chasers here.

Both Teams to Score

Kenilworth Road has been a fertile hunting ground for BTTS bettors this term and seven of Luton’s last nine Championship fixtures there featured goals at both ends.  The Hatters have rattled the net in eight of their 11 league games overall this term, while Norwich have registered in nine of their 11 contests on the road. Those strike rates make for impressive reading and both teams can be backed to find the net with confidence again on Boxing Day.

Luton vs Norwich Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Monday’s Championship contest between Luton and Norwich below.

Luton

Keeper James Shea is out injured for Luton, as are defenders Dan Potts, Sonny Bradley and Reece Burke. Fellow defender Amarii Bell is also unavailable through suspension. In midfield, Fred Onyedinma and Henri Lansbury are sidelined, though attacker Cauley Woodrow should be ready following a calf issue.

Predicted Lineup for Luton: Horvath – Osho, Lockyer, Rea – Mpanzu, Bree, Campbell, Clark, Doughty – Morris, Adebayo

Norwich

Defender Sam Byram is out with a hamstring injury for Norwich, while midfielders Jon Rowe and Jakob Sorensen are both listed as absent for the Canaries too. Norwich fell to a disappointing 2-0 loss at home to Blackburn last time out, though they retained their position in the playoff places.

Predicted Lineup for Norwich: Gunn – Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, McCallum – Hayden, McLean, Sinani, Gabriel Sara, Sargent – Pukki

Player to Watch – Carlton Morris

With 12 goal contributions in 19 starts in the Championship this season, Carlton Morris has been Luton’s star performer in the second tier and the 27-year-old will hope to make another match-defining impact against Norwich on Boxing Day. Morris came through the youth team ranks with the Canaries in the early parts of his career, though he only ever pulled on the first-team shirt once.
