A full betting preview for Nottingham Forest v Leeds United is now available in association with 888sport.Forest 11/10
Could lightning strike thrice? Odds on a third consecutive 4-3 for Forest at The City Ground are a tempting 160/1, but any win will do, and the home team look cracking value to get it.
Unbeaten in their last seven encounters against Leeds, Forest are also riding the crest of back-to-back wins and with confidence surging through the ranks, the away team should hold no fear for Montanier’s men.
Leeds have also enjoyed consecutive victories, following up their 2-0 league win at Sheffield Wednesday by progressing to the third round of the EFL Cup at Luton, but their rotten recent run at The City Ground will be a definite cause for concern for new boss Garry Monk.
With Britt Assombalonga set to win his fitness battle and Leeds forward Chris Wood also in red-hot form, the threat from both teams is clear, and The City Ground could well be treated to another goal-fest, with over 3.5 in the match a definite tempter at 11/4.
Both of Forest’s 4-3 wins have been notable for the avalanche of goals in the second half, so more than 2.5 strikes in the second 45 minutes could be worth looking into at a shade over 4/1.
Lars Veldwijk was the midweek hero at Millwall and is 21/5 to open the scoring, with Assombalonga 13/4 and Henri Lansbury 13/2, while for the away side Wood is 23/4.
Both teams to score looks nailed on at just under evens, while the draw at half-time and home win at full-time pays 4/1.
Prediction: 2-1 17/2
Bet of the day: Both teams score in a home win 7/2
Outside punt: 4-3 160/1
Price boost: Assombalonga to score in a Forest win 11/4
