Saturday’s sole Premier League clash is a low-key affair, but many punters will see Burnley as a clear form bet to come out on top at Norwich.
The Canaries are already relegated following eight straight defeats, whereas the Clarets travel to Carrow Road on a superb six-match unbeaten run.
That sequence includes some daunting fixtures, so 6/5 for an away win has to be the way to go with our opening Norwich vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich at least restored some pride with a resilient display when going down 1-0 at Chelsea in midweek, having previously been embarrassed 4-0 by West Ham at this venue.
Daniel Farke said: “Once you’ve been relegated, it can be easy to think about scoring goals as an individual, to get an assist or a special trick, but we showed great togetherness and team spirit.
“For that, it’s remarkable, especially for a young side in a period where they’ve been criticised for the first time.”
However, City have been very flat up front of late, scoring just one goal in six league games since returning from lockdown.
Burnley don’t tend to feature in too many free-flowing contests themselves, especially on the road, so goals look set to be at a premium here.
Looking at the Norwich vs Burnley odds, the stats say 17/20 for at least one team to draw a blank is a percentage pick.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Lewis, Klose, Rupp, Hernandez, Cantwell, McLean, Tettey, Drmic.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
In their last six matches, Burnley have claimed three wins and drawn against Liverpool, Sheffield United and Wolves.
The Clarets trailed for a long time at home to Wanderers on Wednesday, but a dramatic finale saw them level things up.
Chris Wood first missed a sitter of a header before Matt Doherty was penalised for handball and the New Zealander fired into the top corner of the net with his stoppage-time penalty.
Sean Dyche’s men have now only lost to Manchester City in their last 14 top-flight fixtures, despite having to cope with a sizeable injury list.
“The challenges keep coming but they just keep getting on with it, so I couldn’t be more pleased for the players and what they are putting in and the rewards they are getting,” beamed Dyche.
The Clarets do tend to come on strong in the second half, so 3/2 they outscore City after the break is added to our Norwich vs Burnley betting tips.
Their last three wins against Watford, Crystal Palace and West Ham have all been 1-0, making 13/2 for that scoreline to pop up again another tempting option.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Taylor, Tarkowski, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Rodriguez.
