Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Forest have been steady so far this season, losing just once, with their consistency being a key factor in their Championship previews. 

Eight points from their first four Championship games shows their progress, and a home win, at 4/7 with bet365, looks to be a banker of a football prediction.

2 We fancy:

Karanka’s side have conceded four goals in as many home games this season, and Rotherham have scored just once on the road in league action. 

This indicates a shutout for the home side, and a 2-0 Forest win is a football score prediction with a real profit return, at 7/1 with BetBright.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Recent meetings between these two sides have been fiery, with 11 yellow cards and one red in their two games last season. 

Even if this game looks strongly tipped to be a home win, there are other options to add to your weekend football predictions list. A red card to be shown on Saturday is at 9/2 with bet365.

One to Watch: Lewis Grabban

Grabban has been hailed as the best striker in the division by manager Aitor Karanka, and he is an automatic choice for a Championship prediction.

He opened his account for Forest in their last game against Sheffield Wednesday, and he looks set to kick on from there.

He is at 4/1 to score first with Sky Bet.

Nottingham Forest vs Rotherham United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Nottingham Forest welcome Rotherham to the City Ground this weekend

Karanka’s Forest are expected to be in the promotion shakeup towards the end of the season, and they have been solid, if unspectacular, so far.

Currently down in 11th, they will need to kick on in the next few months if they are to remain in the play-off conversation.

Even though this game has them as firm favourites, there are other football bet tips and predictions available. 

Grabban is likely to be source of the Rotherham back line’s attention, but Forest have midfielder Matty Cash as their top scorer this season, with four goals in all competitions.

The 21-year old is worth a shout as a football prediction, and he is at 11/5 to score anytime on Saturday.

However, if you do fancy Rotherham to have some say in this match, then Jamie Proctor is worth keeping an eye on in your football betting tips for the weekend.

He has three goals already this season in league and cup action, and he is at 7/2 to score anytime.

Predicted Score: Nottingham Forest 2 - 0 Rotherham United
