Norwich City v Hull City Betting Tips and Odds

In our Norwich City v Hull City betting preview we look at the best possible bets between the two sides.

Overview

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City are pitted with a serious challenge on Saturday afternoon, as they host Leonid Slutsky’s Hull City at Carrow Road. Norwich City have been far perfect but could move into the top six with a win here, as they continue to push to reach the heights expected of them. Their manager is showing some big signs that he can fulfil their projected place by the end of the season in past weeks. Hull City aren’t working half as well as they need to in order to achieve the assumed immediate return to the Premier League but their last game boasts a far better set of performances yet to come, with fans willing to back their manager as they work on an alternate style of play. These sides last faced in January 2014, where a single goal from Norwich’s Ryan Bennett saw three points for The Canaries.

After what was a topsy turvy season full of emotion after they had to wave goodbye to Alex Neil, Norwich City have started to show promise in a new era under the guidance of unproven German manager Daniel Farke. The club’s owners were clearly opting to try out the same tactic which worked so successfully for Huddersfield Town, who went against the usual system of instilling a British manager, opting for a new coach from abroad, where David Wagner pushed The Terriers to a climb up to the Premier League, sealing a victory that was far above the club’s original expectations. It’s helped that Norwich City can have just as much inspiration from opting to do the same, but The Canary’s goals are already set at the highest possible point.

Having to face Fulham away from home in the opening day didn’t work as the easiest possible start to Daniel Farke’s reign but he proved himself instantly, pushing his side to a late 1-1 draw with the expected high-climbers. Their next game saw disappointment, as they lost at home to Sunderland but after bouncing back the next game and losing the next two after that, Norwich City finally gained some much-needed consistency, going through the last six games unbeaten. In those six games, they’ve won four and drawn two, with their place in the Championship rapidly improving as the weeks roll on. The next objective will be to keep up the good work, helped by James Maddison, who’s going from strength to strength, achieving two goals in the last two games.

Five games without a win was ended by Hull City’s thrashing over Birmingham

The drop in form by Hull City has been unforeseen, as they’ve gone from being expected to leap straight back up to the Premier League, to now struggling to stay afloat in the second tier. They’re stuck at eleventh after their opening eleven games, only being able to take three wins and three draws, with a mere four point advantage ahead of the relegation zone. Obviously, a drop to League One is totally out of the question in the minds of the club’s owners and fans, especially after being so recently in the top tier, but anything’s possible in a league as fiercely competitive as this one. They’ve moved further from the bottom three since their last game but the international break came at a good time.

Hiring former Russian national team manager Leonid Slutsky was something of a risk, as he’d come in with a mass of experience in his home nation but had never taken charge of a side in England. Their first two games looked hopeful, as The Tigers were unbeaten with a win and a draw but games played since have been quite the opposition, winning one and drawing two of eight games, with an 5-0 thrashing to Derby County being the lowest point. Losing at home to Preston North End was obviously the last straw for Slutsky’s side, as their last game finally saw their five game unbeaten streak broken by absolutely hammering Birmingham City, coming away with a mind-blowing 6-1 scoreline. Youngster Jarrod Bowen is Tigers’ top scorer, netting seven times.
