Match Summary

One to Watch: Lewis Grabban

The former Bournemouth striker has always had the ability to score in the Championship and be a vital part of any team pushing for promotion. The 30-year-old came so close to gaining it with Aston Villa last season, and Forest will be hoping he can take them one step further this term. After four goals in his first nine games, Grabban is 60/1 to score first in a 2-0 Forest win with Bet365 – a good bet if you want smart football betting tips for the weekend. However, if you just want Championship predictions such as first goal scorer without the result, Grabban to score first is at 13/2 to open the scoring.

Middlesbrough vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Martin Braithwaite find the target for Boro this weekend?

Don’t let the table fool you, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest both have the exact same ambitions this season. They both want to gain promotion to the Premier League and in Tony Pulis and Aitor Karanka, the latter facing his former club, the sides are managed by coaches who make their dreams a reality.

However, while both clubs share the same ambition, they may not be so similar on the pitch, with Boro priced at 3/4 to win with bet365, the draw 13/5 and a Forest away win at 18/5. So while the fixture could go either way, it’s clear that Boro are the slight favourites. 

Another bet that could be good to look out for is the half-time/full-time score in this one, especially if you’re looking for correct football score predictions. A Forest/draw at 14/1 with bet365, which may turn out to be a good pick for the weekend. 

Predicted Score: Middlesbrough 1 - 1 Nottingham Forest
