Nottingham Forest vs Norwich City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Norwich bounce back from their defeat last time out?

Nottingham Forest sit in fifth in the table and are unbeaten in their last seven games, drawing three and winning four. Last time out they won 2-0 away to Middlesbrough which came off the back of two 2-2 draws with Millwall and Blackburn respectively. Something worth pointing out in this Sky Bet Championship Preview is the fact that Forest have lost just once in the league so far this season and have lost just once in their last 10 home games in the league. 

Norwich are in ninth place and are winless in their last two games, drawing 1-1 away to Derby County and losing 1-0 at home to Stoke last time out. Prior to that loss to Stoke though they had gone eight games unbeaten in all competitions which included won four wins in a row in the league. 

Forest are 5/4 to win the game and won this fixture last season 1-0 at home, you will find odds of 7/1 for another 1-0 win for the home team here and that is a decent offering for anyone looking to make football predictions for today. 

Norwich are 11/5 to take the three points home with them and last beat Forest away two seasons ago when they won 2-1 in September 2016. It is 10/1 for a similar scoreline in this one and that is a tempting price for someone interested in making football score predictions. 

The draw is 9/4 and there has only been one stalemate in the past seven meetings at the City Ground between the teams, a 1-1 back in 2010. Another 1-1 draw here has odds of 5/1.

Forests’ Lewis Grabban is 4/1 to score the first goal of the game and that is a decent price for anyone looking to make any football score predictions in this match. 

Norwich’s’ Teemu Puuki if deemed fit to play is 27/5 to open the scoring and the Finnish international already has five league goals to his name. 

Predicted Score: Nottingham Forest 2 - 1 Norwich City
