Norwich v Wolves betting tips: Canaries on the up
Odds and preview for Saturday’s match
Norwich had to wait until November for a first win of the season but are now aiming to make it three in a row as we look at possible Norwich v Wolves betting tips.
Back-to-back victories with two different managers in charge have lifted the Canaries off the foot of the Premier League table at Newcastle’s expense.
Their sixth-placed visitors are also in good form, though, ahead of Saturday’s match, which kicks off at 3pm at Carrow Road.
Norwich v Wolves match odds
Dean Smith started his Norwich tenure with three points after Grant Hanley’s 79th-minute header earned a 2-1 victory at home to Southampton last weekend.
Teemu Pukki had cancelled out Che Adams’ early opener for the visitors before Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy was at fault for Hanley’s late effort which saw the Norfolk club celebrate another win, having gone 20 top-flight fixtures without one before their success at Brentford two weeks earlier.
The Canaries have struggled for goals but have now scored in three successive matches and both teams to score is an option for Norwich v Wolves betting tips at 10/11.
Wolves have put a slow start to the season behind them and last week’s 1-0 victory at home to West Ham was their sixth win in nine matches.
Norwich v Wolves head-to-head
Wolves did the double over Norwich two years ago and are unbeaten in the last four meetings.
They came from behind to win 2-1 on their last trip to Carrow Road in December 2019 when Todd Cantwell gave Norwich a half-time lead but goals from Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez turned the match on its head.
The return match at Molineux was much more one-sided and a first-half brace from Diogo Jota – now at Liverpool – set up a 3-0 win for Wolves.
Over 2.5 goals has paid out in five of the last six meetings and is 6/5 in the Norwich v Wolves odds.
Norwich v Wolves key battles
Smith believes getting the best out of Billy Gilmour will be vital to Norwich’s hopes of staying in the Premier League.
One of the key early decisions made by the new Canaries boss was to recall Chelsea loanee Gilmour for his first club appearance in two months and he was vindicated with the midfielder setting up the winner against Southampton to cap an outstanding return to action.
His battle with Ruben Neves in the middle of the pitch should be fascinating while both teams have an obvious goal threat.
Jimenez scored the Wolves winner last week and was also on target with the last goal of the match in both games against Norwich two years ago.
Both players to score and the match to end in a draw catches the eye at 14/1 in the #YourCall markets.
