Nottingham Forest’s phenomenal 3-0 away win at Bolton during the week sets them up perfectly for the weekend, where Aitor Karanka’s side will arguably face their toughest test so far this season when they travel to Elland Road to play top of the table, Leeds United, at 5.30pm.
Leeds United go into this fixture as favourites with BetBright, however, Forest fans could well feel there’s a lot of value in Forest’s price, especially taking into account their strong run of form, where they are undefeated in all but one of their previous nine fixtures.
After a goalless draw on The Reds’ last trip to Elland Road back in January of this year, Forest will be hoping to go one better and take all three points back to The City Ground.
Full Time Result
Leeds United – 7/10
Draw – 14/5
Nottingham Forest – 15/4
Something to note ahead of this tie is that only once have both teams scored, in four of their last five meetings.
It’s also worth considering that Leeds have conceded in four of their last six games and with Forest bagging an average of 1.5 goals per match, a BTTS bet this weekend could be an interesting prospect.
Yes – 8/11
No – 19/20
Lewis Grabban is on fire for The Reds this season and after scoring twice against Bolton on Wednesday, he’ll be full of confidence in front of goal at Elland Road, hopeful that he’ll add to his impressive eight goal tally.
