EFL Championship Round 40 Preview: Norwich Look To Extend Lead At Top Against QPR

Meanwhile, Leeds face tough trip to Birmingham, while Sheffield United are also on the road at Preston

Norwich will have a fantastic opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the EFL Championship this coming weekend, with both of their title rivals playing away from home. On this coming Saturday afternoon (6 April) Norwich host a struggling QPR outfit, while Leeds face a tricky test at Birmingham and Sheffield United travel to take on Preston.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, let’s start with the clash between Norwich and QPR. Norwich have won their last seven league games in a row and sit a comfortable five points clear at the top of the table – they are the clear favourites to win the league title this term and are priced at just 1.25 to do so.

QPR, in stark contrast, are without a win in their last five league matches and are struggling for both form and confidence. They cannot be relishing a trip to the in-form side in the league who look to be heading back to the FA Premier League.

And it is indeed Norwich who come into this match as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the league leaders to win at just 1.44, while QPR are out at 7.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.33, according to Oddsshark.

This should be a comfortable afternoon’s work for the home side. A 3-1 win for Norwich is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can almost triple your money by backing a combo bet of a Norwich win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.87.

Leeds face tough trip to Birmingham

On the same day, Birmingham host Leeds looking to move up the table after a nine point deduction for financial misconduct. Birmingham are in a bad way having lost their last five league matches in a row and are in danger of slipping towards the relegation zone over the final weeks of the season.

Leeds meanwhile are desperate for three points as they look to close the five point gap that has opened up between themselves and Norwich. Formerly the favourites for the crown, Leeds are now out at 6.00 to win the EFL Championship league title this term.

But they come into this match as the favourites to pick up three valuable points. You can double your money by backing Leeds to win this one at 2.00 while Birmingham, despite home advantage, are out at 3.60 to do the same – a draw comes in just under at 3.50.

And we are expecting Birmingham’s woes to continue here. A narrow, 2-1 win for Leeds is priced at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out, while you can double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.00.

Sheffield United to face real test at Preston

And finally, Preston host Sheffield United looking to move into the play-off positions. Preston currently sit in 10th place just two points off the play-offs, and are priced at 8.00 to finish in the top six come the end of the season.

Sheffield United, by way of comparison, sit third in the table but defeat last time out looks to have put paid to their title aspirations. Nevertheless, they are priced at just 1.61 to be promoted back to the FA Premier League.

And while the betting is close in this one, it is visitors Sheffield United who come in as the favourites to pick up the win. You can more than double your money by backing the Blades to take all three points at 2.20, with Preston out at 3.30 to do the same – a draw is just lower at 3.25.

But we think that home advantage could well be a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 2-1 win for Preston is priced competitively at 12.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$60 pay out, while you can double your money by backing over 2.5 goals in the game at 2.00.
