Huddersfield Town vs Norwich City Prediction
It is really hard to predict how teams are going to play in the very early stages of the season. We usually recommend goals market options, especially when there is a derby match being played. Tradition also suggests an easy Over 2.5 goals pick at more than decent 2.00 odds.
It is also worth adding that both teams had really bad season premiere match in the League Cup – Huddersfield Town were defeated at this stadium by Rochdale 0-1 FT, while Norwich City suffered convincing 1-3 loss to Luton Town.
Finish striker Teemu Pukki is once again going to lead the offense for Canaries, and we fancy the 2.50 odds to see him score a goal at any time on Saturday.
Over 2.5 goals FT @ 2.00
Teemu Pukki to score anytime @ 2.50
