Daniel Farke’s Canaries are well-fancied for Sunday’s East Anglian derby, but we don’t see Mick McCarthy’s Tractor Boys leaving empty-handed

Norwich City host local rivals Ipswich Town at Carrow Road in the Championship on Sunday afternoon.

There is little to choose between the two sides, who both have 44 points and sit 13th and 12th respectively in the Championship table; with a late play-off charge unlikely, local bragging rights are the main incentive here.

Latest odds

The hosts are heavy 8/13 (1.62) favourites to complete a double over their arch enemies, having won 1-0 at Portman Road in the reverse fixture.

Ipswich are a generous 9/2 (5.5) to record their first victory at Carrow Road since Danny Haynes’ late winner in 2006. A draw between these sides, who both remain eight points off the top six, is 11/4 (3.75).

Ball-winner Tom Trybull will miss at least the next two months for the Canaries, whose main goal threat will come from James Maddison; the attacking midfield magician is 15/8 (2.88) to score anytime.

Tom Adeyemi could still be out with a hamstring injury, but Ipswich have their main attacking weapons present and correct: Joe Garner is a tempting 75/1 (76.0) to score first in a 2-1 win.

Visitors look overpriced by the bookies

We’re taking past meetings out of the equation and given the negligible difference in performance levels, no side should be as big outsiders here as the visitors are.

An Ipswich win on the "draw no bet" market can be found at 11/4 (3.75); that selection will land if we see an away win but also offers a return of the initial stake should the tussle end all square. Alternatively, The Tractor Boys are 5/1 (6.0) to be victorious by a one goal margin.

Tips and predictions

Norwich have had difficulties replicating their impressive away form at Carrow Road, where they have won just five of their 15 home games. On a purely statistical basis, that would indicate a 67% chance of them failing to win the average clash on this ground. Even with a derby day atmosphere, it's tough to trust the hosts at such a short price and the 13/10 (2.3) on an Ipswich win or draw, which implies a 44% chance, looks great value for our best bet.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
