Sunderland vs Norwich City: Betting Tips

The Black Cats don’t have much time left to avoid relegation this season. Many fans would agree that they need a miracle at the moment, being seven points short from the safe zone. Suffering two relegations in a row is something you don’t see very often in modern football. Sunderland welcomes Norwich City on Tuesday night, and anything other than a win would send them to League One.

The Canaries have spent a lot of time in the bottom half of the Championship table as well. However, they have moved up on the standings after losing only three out of last 13 divisional matches. Performance against Aston Villa last weekend was just marvelous. Norwich City have battered the squad from Birmingham, winning the duel 3-1. Coach Daniel Farke is most likely going to use the same line up against Sunderland. However, he won’t be able to have Tom Trybull, Moritz Leitner and Matt Jarvis in the squad (all of them injured). Scoring at least one goal against Sunderland (the worst stats in the league) shouldn’t be a problem.

I am going with Both teams to score as the first bet here. As already mentioned, The Black Stats have the worst back line in the Championship, having conceded 73 goals so far. Norwich and their results on the road are also indicating weak defending (conceded 29 times), so BTTS is an obvious choice.

When it comes to the most dangerous players on both sides, hosts will be led by Lewis Grabban (scored 12), while Canaries are carried by James Maddison (bagged 14 times).
