Norwich City – Burnley is the lone Premier League game on Saturday (start time, 12:30pm ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com) as the Canaries are playing for pride and the Clarets still in with a shout of Europe.
Daniel Farke and Norwich have lost all seven of their Premier League games since the restart and were relegated last weekend. Sean Dyche’s Burnley keep on grinding away and have lost just one of their seven games since the restart and have picked up impressive draws against Liverpool and Wolves in their last two games. If they win their final two games and others above them drop points, Burnley can qualify for the Europa League.

Odds and ends (full matchweek odds)
The hosts Norwich are unsurprisingly the underdogs here (+225) while Burnley (+125) are a pretty good bet for this one. The tie at +235 is decent too, as Norwich are still playing for pride and Burnley have a lot of injuries to deal with and their small squad has had a very quick turnaround.
I would probably say Burnley will edge, 1-0 or 2-1, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Norwich do grab a point. They were more organized at Chelsea but scoring goals has become a huge issue for Farke’s side since Teemu Pukki stopped scoring in the fall. I am going to go for a 2-1 win for Burnley with Jay Rodriguez being the main man for the Clarets once again.
