There's no stopping Norwich at the top of the championship. The Canaries have won 7 on the bounce and have proven themselves as the most well-rounded and consistent side in the league.

Daniel Farke sees his side 5 points clear of Leeds and 7 clear of Sheffield United, it's looking like a matter of time before they seal promotion back to the premier league. Their form in Norfolk is very strong, winning 10, drawing 2 and losing 1 of their last 13. Lowly QPR are the visitors and the form book suggests another loss is likely here.

The hoops cut ties with Steve McLaren earlier this week after a miserable run losing 7, drawing 2 and winning just 1 of their last 10 in all competitions. At time of writing they haven't appointed a successor to the ex-England manager, thankfully for the R's they're probably safe from relegation after a decent run over the winter.

Looking at their squad it's probably around about where they should be in my eyes. They need to invest cleverly in the summer, they could learn a thing or two on recruitment from their opposition here.

Team News

Norwich have a mostly fit squad. Matt Jarvis and Nathan Thompson remain sidelined.

QPR remain without Sean Goss.

Potential Norwich Starting XI: Krul, Aarons, Zimmerman, Godfrey, Lewis, Trybull, McLean, Buendia, Stiepermann, Hernandez, Pukki.

Potential QPR Starting XI: Lumley, Rangel, Leistner, Lynch, Bidwell, Wszolek, Scowen, Luongo, Osayi-Samuel, Freeman, Hemed.

Key Stats & Facts

  • Norwich are on a 7 game winning run.
  • Norwich have scored an average of 2.8 goals a game in their last 10 home fixtures.
  • QPR have won once in their last 11 (all comps).
  • QPR have won just 1 of their last 12 away games in the championship.
  • QPR have conceded 2+ in 9 of their last 11 away games.

Betting Odds

  • Norwich – 4/9
  • Draw – 15/4
  • QPR – 13/2

The Verdict

I have to be with the hosts here, it's just a case of finding a way of getting more value out of the 4/9 on the Canaries. Given the fact Norwich have scored 3 or more goals in 9/11 home games I'll incorporate a home win along side a goal heavy game.

We can get an odds-against quote of 21/20 with Ladbrokes on Norwich to win and over 2.5 goals, that makes plenty of appeal. All three of QPR's last losses have come alongside 3 or more goals. 7 of Norwich's last 8 wins at Carrow Road have also seen over 2.5 goals. It's a stats based selection which gives us a much more palatable price.

Recommended Bets

  • 2pts – Norwich to win and over 2.5 goals – 21/20 (Ladbrokes)
