On the same day, title rivals Leeds are also at home against Wigan, while Sheffield United host Nottingham Forest.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Norwich and Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road. The Canaries are without a win in their last two league outings but remain four points clear at the top of the table – they are priced at just 1.12 to lift the league title come the end of the season.
Sheffield Wednesday, by way of comparison, have lost two of their last three league games and sit 10th in the table. Six points off the play-offs, they are all the way out at 151.00 to finish in the top six this term.
And it is Norwich who come into this match as the clear favourites to pick up three vital points. You can back the league leaders to get back to winning ways at just 1.50, while Sheffield Wednesday are out at 6.00 to collect the victory on the road – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.33, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting this to be a comfortable afternoon’s work for Norwich. A 2-0 win for the home side is priced at 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.10.
Leeds should make it three in a row against Wigan
Meanwhile, title chasing Leeds will welcome Wigan to Elland Road. The Yorkshire giants sit second in the table, four points behind Norwich, and will be looking to make it three league wins on the bounce this Friday.
Wigan, by way of comparison, are without a win in their last four league outings and sit just two points above the drop zone. The club is priced at 7.00 to drop back down to League One after one season back in the second tier.
And it is indeed Leeds who come into this match as the clear favourites to take the three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.36, while Wigan are out at 7.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.00.
Again, this should be a comfortable home win. A 3-1 victory for Leeds is priced competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can double your money by backing both teams to score at 2.00.
Sheffield United welcome out of form Forest
And finally, Sheffield United host an out of sorts Nottingham Forest side. The Blades are without a win in their last two league outings but remain third in the table, three points behind Leeds in second, and are priced at just 1.80 to win promotion to the Premier League.
Forest, by way of comparison, have lost their last three league matches in a row and appear to be out of contention for a late promotion push. With little left but pride to play for this term, they could well be starting at a fourth loss on the bounce.
And it is indeed United who come into this match as the red hot favourites to take all three points. You can back the Blades to win at just 1.57, while Nottingham Forest are out at 5.75 to get back to winning ways – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00.
And we are expecting another comfortable home victory. A 2-0 win for United is priced at 7.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$35 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Sheffield United win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, at 2.60.
