Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Forest like to score an early goal, and they have scored first in their last six Championship games.

They look in line to keep this going, and as a football prediction for this clash, Forest to score first is at 8/11 with Sky Bet.

2 We fancy:

Forest have been efficient rather than spectacular in recent games, but they are unbeaten since 1 September. 

However, they have not scored more than two goals in the league in that run, and that is likely to be the case in a narrow win here.

A 1-0 away victory as a football score prediction comes in at 6/1 with bet365.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Bolton’s form has put them down in the relegation reckoning so far this season, but they’ve shown signs of life in recent weeks. 

Their home form has been fairly solid, with just two losses in five, and if you are looking to turn this prediction on its head, a home win is at 13/5 with bet365, in an alternative football bet tip and prediction for this clash.

One to Watch: Lewis Grabban

Journeyman striker Grabban has been the go-to man for goals in recent weeks, and that is why he has been highlighted in this Championship preview.

Six goals, including two in his last two appearances, makes him a key man in this round of Championship predictions. 

He is at 4/1 with bet365 to score first.

Bolton Wanderers vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Bolton entertain Nottingham Forest at the University of Bolton Stadium in this midweek fixture

Forest’s gritty resolve has seen them climb the table up to ninth place, after an inconsistent start to the season. 

With this increase in defensive solidity, they have been able to reestablish themselves as outside bet for a play-off spot at the end of the season.

This tie is unlikely to be a thriller, given Bolton’s poor form, and Forest’s pragmatic approach in recent weeks. 

However, that should not deter you from adding it to your football predictions list, for a bumper midweek edition of Championship action.

While Forest have created a habit of scoring first, that has not always been in the first 45 minutes, with 50% of those scoring first instances occurring in the second period.

A 0-0 draw at half-time is very tempting as a betting option, priced at 17/10 with Paddy Power. 

Predicted Score: Bolton Wanderers 0 - 1 Nottingham Forest
