By the time Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday kick-off on Friday, the Canaries could find themselves just one point clear of Leeds if they manage to secure the points against Wigan. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and as ever we have plenty of value waiting for you in our FanBoosts section!
Norwich Recent Form
The Canaries have pulled four points clear at the head of the table thanks to an excellent run of eight wins from their last 10 unbeaten matches.
However, both those stalemates came in their last two without star midfielder Emiliano Buendia following his dismissal against QPR, resulting in a three-match ban. Indeed, this season alone Norwich have gone W23-D7-L2 from their 32 matches with him starting, compared to just W2-D4-L4 in the 10 without him.
Moreover, he’s also their second-top scorer with eight goals, while he leads the charts for them in the creative department with 11 assists and his services are sorely missed at present.
Norwich v Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips
Wednesday have no selection issues like that to worry about, but they haven’t exactly been ruthless with seven wins from their last 15 outings, though they did only lose twice.
Their record against the current top-four sides in the table is nothing too concerning though, drawing five of seven winless outings with Daniel Farke’s men the only side winning by more than a single strike.
However, that result makes the head-to-heads between them evenly split W2-D1-L2 since 2016/17, with that draw coming at Carrow Road, not to mention that Norwich’s reverse fixture win came with the services of Buendia, who scored that day.
We reckon another stalemate could well be on the cards with the visitors drawing four of their last seven on the road, as their only defeat came at Elland Road by a single goal, and with Norwich looking far too short in the outright without Buendia, the +1 Asian Handicap has our backing.
