Nottingham Forest v Wigan Athletic: Betting Preview

Updated: 26/02/2024

Nottingham Forest’s focus this weekend will be a home Championship fixture against Wigan and Martin O’Neill will take some comfort in hearing that the visitors have lost 10 and drawn their last 12 away matches in the league.

It’s little wonder BetBright have priced the Reds as strong favourites ahead of this encounter.

Full Time Result

Nottingham Forest – 11/10
Draw – 23/10
Wigan Athletic – 13/5

Forest’s most recent league games haven’t been showered with goals, where there have been under 2.5 goals in 7 out of their last 9 Championship matches – O’Neill will have his team set up well, and will hope that if this stat repeats itself on Saturday, then the goals will be in his favour.

Total Goals Over/Under

Under (0.5) – 7/1
Under (1.5) – 2/1
Under (2.5) – 7/10
Over (2.5) – 11/10
Over (3.5) – 14/5

Nottingham Forest have lost 3 of their last 4 home Championship matches by a score line of 1-0 and no doubt O’Neill will have his sights firmly set on putting an end to this less than desirable statistic.

Plenty of Forest players have managed to hit the back of the net so far this season and the new Manager started his former Republic of Ireland striker, Daryl Murphy, last weekend who could be in favour to start again and fancy himself to get on the score sheet.
