Nottingham Forest v Leeds: betting preview with 888sport
Could lighting strike thrice? Odds on a third consecutive 4-3 for Forest at the City Ground are a tempting 160/1, but any win will do, and the home team look cracking value to get it.
Unbeaten in their last seven encounters against visitors Leeds, Forest are also riding the crest of back-to-back wins and with confidence surging through the ranks, the away team should hold no fear for Montanier’s men.
Leeds, too, have enjoyed consecutive victories, following up their 2-0 league win at Sheffield Wednesday by progressing to the third round of the EFL Cup at Luton, but their rotten recent run at the City Ground will be a definite cause for concern for new boss Gary Monk.
With Britt Assombalonga set to win his fitness battle and Leeds forward Chris Wood also on red hot form, the threat from both teams is clear, and the City Ground could well be treated to another goalfest, with over 3.5 in the match a definite tempter at 11/4.
Both of Forest’s 4-3 wins have been notable for the avalanche of goals in the second period, so more than 2.5 strikes in the second 45 could be worth looking into at a shade over 4/1.
Prediction 2-1 17/2
Bet of the day: Both teams score in a home win 7/2
Outside punt: 4-3 160/1
