Nothing in it

Norwich arrive into this game as favourites to win but we are backing Preston to take a point. Norwich have drawn two of their last three games as they've experienced a very small wobble in their quest to leapfrog Sheffield United at the top of the table. Preston meanwhile have been exceptionally tight at the back this season and have been unbeaten in each of their last three away games with two draws and one win in that period. Furthermore, if you look to the head to head record these two sides don't tend to have much between them; the last four meetings between the pair have ended with one win apiece and two draws. All things considered, backing this game to end level is the best value bet.

A low scoring match awaits

If predicting a draw for this match is slightly bold then this total goals bets is somewhat safer as we back under 2.5 goals. Preston have averaged just 0.7 goals per game so far this season with Norwich also coming in south of the 2.5 marker at 2.3. The recent form of both sides support an under 2.5 goals tip as well; Norwich have seen each of their last three games fall short of that 2.5 marker with Preston having gone under 2.5 goals in each of their past seven. Finally, last time these two sides met they shared just two goals.

Can Norwich go top this weekend?

Norwich's Liam Gibbs made his return from injury in the week so it's unlikely he'll be ready to start again here, which could see Kieran Dowell come into the XI. Adam Idah and Isaac Hayden remain out.

Norwich Predicted lineup – Krul, Byram, Aarons, Hanley, Omobamidele, Nunez, Dowell, McLean, Pukki, Sargent, Ramsey

Preston, who have no injury concerns ahead of this game, won on Wednesday for the first time since August. After a decent performance, we are expecting an unchanged XI.

Preston Predicted lineup – Woodman, Storey, Lindsay, Cunningham, Browne, Fernandez, Brady, Whiteman, McCann, Maguire, Riis
