Norwich vs Wigan Bet Builder Tips
Norwich City’s defeat at the hands of Cardiff City was one of the biggest shocks in the Championship on matchday No. 1. The Canaries are the bookies’ favourite to win the league. Wigan are newly-promoted with some bookies picking the Lactics as going back down to League One.

Norwich City vs Wigan Full-time Result
Norwich City may have had a Premier League hangover on matchday No. 1 in the Championship. The Canaries should do better on matchday No. 2 by posting a win against the newly-promoted Lactics. Just one of the 12 Championship matches in the first round finished as an away win. My betting tips prediction is for a Norwich City win at full-time.
Norwich City vs Wigan Half Time Result
Just two of the 12 Championship matches last weekend went into halftime with the away side winning. This trend should continue as Norwich City flex some muscle this weekend versus Wigan. The teams should go into the break drawing at halftime. On matchday No. 1, Norwich City drew at halftime with Cardiff City, while Wigan drew at halftime with Preston North End.
Norwich City vs Wigan Halftime / Full-time Result
Norwich City have a strong head-to-head record against Wigan in their last six meetings. The Canaries posted a record of 3W-2D-1L over the course of the last six matches. The first half should be close with the match going into halftime as a draw. The Canaries should pull away from Wigan in the second half and claim a victory at full-time.
Norwich City vs Wigan Double Chance

Norwich City have outscored Wigan across their last six encounters 7-5. The six matches finished with 24 yellow cards for an average of four yellow cards per game.
Norwich City vs Wigan Over/Under
My betting tips prediction is for under 2.5 goals in this game. Yes, Norwich City have a strong attack with Teemu Pukki tasked with scoring goals. Yet, the Canaries struggled on opening day to get goals. Four of the last six games between these teams finished with under 2.5 goals. Eleven of round No. 1’s 12 games finished with under 2.5 goals.
Norwich City vs Wigan First Goal Scorer
Teemu Pukki has scored 78 goals in 168 games for Norwich City since arriving in 2018. The striker will need better service than in round No. 1 if Norwich City are to win promotion back to the Premier League. Pukki has scored double digit goals in each of his four full seasons at Carrow Road. In two previous Championship campaigns, he bagged 26 or more goals in each season. Pukki should score first for the Canaries.
Norwich City vs Wigan Anytime Goal Scorer
If you are looking for another goal scorer than Teemu Pukki, then Milot Rashica could be the man to get a goal. He signed for Norwich City last season and scored twice in the Premier League. Looking over the team that played against Cardiff City last weekend, Norwich City do not look as strong in the attack as previously believed. Pukki will have more pressure than usual to score. Rashica is a nice alternative to get a goal anytime.
Norwich City vs Wigan Last Goal Scorer
My betting tips prediction is for Pukki to get the last goal of the game. Dean Smith is already getting heat from Norwich City supporters. Smith needs Pukki to come up big and my betting tips prediction is for Pukki to score last.
Norwich City vs Wigan Winning Margin
This should be a close game with Norwich City winning at full-time. Four of the 12 matches last weekend finished 1-0 to the home side. My betting tips prediction is for Norwich City to get a narrow win against a defensively sound Wigan by a 1-0 scoreline.
Norwich City vs Wigan Half with most goals
The second half should see the majority of the goals. Wigan’s match at home with Preston North End finished nil-nil. Norwich City’s away loss to Cardiff City was nil-nil at halftime, but the Bluebirds scored in the second half to win, 1-0. The second half should seee the majority of the goals.
Norwich City vs Wigan BTTS
Only four of the 12 matches in the Championship on matchday No. 1 finished with BTTS. The Championship can be a low scoring league. Matchday No. 2’s fixture between Norwich City and Wigan should finish NO BTTS.
