Wolves vs Norwich – Free Betting Tips and Prediction
Bookmaker Ratings prediction one: Wolves to Win – 1.57
Bookmaker Ratings prediction two: Under 2.5 Goals – 1.73)
Wolves to Win
With an impressive five victories in their last six matches, Wolves have hit a rich vein of form and Wanderers have lost just once in their last eight assignments at Molineux. Norwich have lost two of their last three encounters with the Midlanders and a third reverse against Wolves looks possible in Saturday’s FA Cup clash.
Under 2.5 Goals
Norwich and Wolves were involved in a drab 0-0 stalemate when they last locked horns at Carrow Road in November and chances should be at a premium again when the teams meet in the cup. Four of Wanderers’ last six home fixtures have also produced under 2.5 goals and we expect Saturday’s Cup tie to follow suit.

Preliminary review and match prediction for Wolves vs Norwich
The international break came at an inopportune time for Wolves who had been building some serious momentum in the Premier League before the pause button was pressed on the club campaign in England.
Wanderers emerged as victors from each of their last four matches, a run that included a superb 1-0 triumph over Manchester United at Old Trafford and confidence levels at the club are certain to be sky high as a result.
Manager Bruno Lage has plenty to be enthusiastic about, despite the January exit of threatening winger Adama Traore to Barcelona, and Wolves should be considered favourites to prolong their FA Cup run at Norwich’s expense this weekend.
The Canaries are making excellent strides under the watch of new head coach Dean Smith, however, with Premier League survival the priority, City could make changes to their XI for Saturday’s cup game.
Even with a full-strength team deployed, Norwich often struggle to make an impact in the final third, especially in away games, where they have failed to register in eight of their 12 tests in all competitions.
The lack of bite across Norwich’s frontline should be a key factor when the Canaries visit a Wolves outfit that are notoriously mean defensively. Wanderers have conceded only two goals in their last six skirmishes combined and they can use that solidity as a platform for more success against City.
With that considered, we recommend siding with the hosts in Saturday’s FA Cup Fourth Round contest, while a stake on under 2.5 goals can also be placed with confidence.
Wolves have kept four clean sheets in their last six home games and Wanderers conceded just twice overall during the same period. Norwich failed to breach Wolves’ defence when the teams last met in November and the toothless relegation contenders could struggle to open their host’s up again this weekend. The evidence suggests that backing Wolves to shutout City at Molineux at 2.05 could be a smart move.
Get Quick Rich
Wolves beat Norwich to nil when City last visited Molineux in 2020 and the same outcome looks possible on Saturday. The Canaries have already lost to nil seven times on the road this term, while Wolves claimed a victory along with a clean sheet in three of their last six matches. You can back the hosts to win to nil again at 2.45.
Wolves vs Norwich first goalscorer
Wanderers star Daniel Podence enjoyed a productive afternoon in the last round of the FA Cup, notching two of his team’s three goals against Sheffield United. The Portuguese winger opened the scoring against the Blades in the 14th minute and Podence is available at a generous 7.0 to repeat the trick against Norwich.
