What Trueform says for Middlesbrough vs Norwich
Norwich hold a four-point advantage at the top of the Championship table with eight games remaining courtesy of a six-game winning streak.
The international break came at a good time for Middlesbrough, who have lost their last three and are winless in four.
Punters can get 9/4 for this encounter to finish all square and that is our opening Middlesbrough vs Norwich prediction.
A Look At Middlesbrough’s Betting Odds
Boss Tony Pulis lamented the concession of “three shocking goals” as Boro slumped to a third defeat on the spin when losing 3-0 at Aston Villa.
It followed a goalless draw at Wigan and back-to-back home losses to Brentford and Preston with Boro’s last win coming against QPR on February 23.
Pulis said: “It has been a difficult week. The team was flat. I thought we were slow and sluggish in the opening 20 minutes. They had five shots on target and scored three.
“It was a great ratio for them but the goals we conceded were very poor and it was unlike us.”
Pulis will hope the break will have given his players time to clear their heads ahead of the visit of Norwich, who can expect a stern test despite having the best away record in the division.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Eight wins in nine games and just one defeat in 13 have put Norwich in the driving seat for automatic promotion.
Kenny McLean scored the equaliser and set up Ben Godfrey for the winner as the Canaries overcame Rotherham 2-1 ahead of the break.
It was a third successive one-goal win for City, with boss Daniel Farke praising the “steel and togetherness” his players showed.
He added: “Each and every player was switched on. Everyone was highly motivated. This win is massive. I am a pretty happy man. It was a team performance.
“We are handling spicy games and when we are in the spotlight. We have overachieved in the eyes of so many people so far. It’s a good position to be in.”
With home games against QPR and Reading to come, Norwich may well be content with a point so Draw HT/Draw FT at 15/4 completes our Middlesbrough vs Norwich betting tips.
