Norwich are unbeaten in their last nine East Anglian derby encounters and that trend should continue on Sunday.
The Canaries sit below their arch rivals on goal difference in the Championship table but their form going into the Carrow Road showdown is way superior.
However, the form book generally goes out of the window in derby matches and with six of the last seven encounters seeing no more than two goals, 18/25 for under 2.5 goals kicks off our Norwich vs Ipswich betting predictions.
A Look At Norwich’s Betting Odds
After being booed off the pitch following a home defeat to Brentford three days before Christmas, which saw them looking nervously over their shoulder, Norwich have put together a run of just one loss in eight games, winning five, which has prompted some noise about a late play-off charge.
Three of those wins came courtesy of a 1-0 scoreline, which has also contributed seven of Norwich’s 12 league triumphs this season, with their resolute defence accumulating 12 clean sheets in the process. With this in mind, 33/20 for City to win to nil appeals.
In James Maddison, Norwich also possess one of the hottest prospects outside the Premier League. The England Under-21 international was the match-winner at Portman Road in October and another big performance is expected of the youngster.
Daniel Farke’s side have not enjoyed the best of times in from of their own fans this season but just two losses from their last seven home fixtures indicates they are finally getting their act together and they should have too much for Ipswich once again.
A Look At Ipswich’s Betting Odds
Ipswich’s flying start to the season is now a distant memory as they hover around mid-table following a poor run of form since Christmas.
Mick McCarthy’s men have posted just two wins in eight games and were held to a goalless draw at home to bottom-side Burton on Saturday, with a Portman Road crowd of just 13,815 – their lowest attendance of the season and least for a league game since 1998.
A derby could well be what the Town squad need to raise their game but their recent record against their rivals from down the A140 suggests otherwise. You have to go back to April 2009 for the last time they had local bragging rights, with February 2007 their last success at Carrow Road.
Town’s matches this season have also not been awash with goals so them to be level at half-time before Norwich take the win at 333/100 is very attractive indeed.
