Tip Norwich - Sheffield United
Norwich City are second in the Championship and only a point behind leaders Leeds United. They host Sheffield United who are fourth in the table and three points behind their opponents. With third placed West Bromwich Albion on FA Cup duty this weekend, a win for United will take them into second in the table. Norwich City beat Birmingham City in their last game and that ended a run of four league games without a win. Goals have certainly been flowing for City at Carrow Road. Their last six home league games have seen them score at least three goals and only West Brom and Aston Villa have scored more home league goals than them. Nine of their 14 home league games have been won and if they hadn't drawn seven away games, would be clear at the top.
Sheffield United have had an inconsistent 2019 so far. They lost at home to non-league Barnet in the FA Cup third round and last week lost 1-0 away to Swansea City. Before that they had won four league games in a row and have only lost one of their last six away league games. Only three teams have scored more away goals than them in the Championship and the bet here is to go for over 2.5 goals to be scored.
