Norwich 1/1 to beat QPR and over 2.5 goals in Saturday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Norwich win and over 2.5 goals

Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365

Handed the opportunity to briefly extend their buffer at the top of the Championship to eight points, Norwich will host a now managerless QPR side at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, picking up a hard-fought 1-0 win away at playoff hopefuls Middlesbrough last weekend, the mood in Norwich’s camp couldn’t be any higher. Already holding a five-point buffer at the top of the table, Daniel Farke’s side have continued to shine at the back end of the season. Holding the best-attacking record of any side in the Championship, the Canneries are enjoying a seven-match winning run and have not lost at Carrow Road in 2019. One man to watch on Saturday will be the divisions leading goalscorer, Teemu Puki. The 29-year-old has bagged 24 Championship goals this season and also scored the winner when the two sides met back in September.

As for the visitors, while Norwich are enjoying a continued bright run of form, the same cannot be said for a now managerless QPR side. Sacking former England boss Steve McClaren last week, the Hoops now sit 10 points adrift of the top half and have really endured a woeful second half to the campaign. Picking up just a single victory in any of their last 15 Championship appearances, they have particularly struggled away from Loftus Road this year. QPR have failed to win a single away match in 2019 and have also lost four of their last five away from West London, more worrying for Saturday’s visitors, they have conceded two or more goals in each of those defeats.
