Forest v Newcastle betting preview with 888sport

2 December 2016

A full betting preview for Nottingham Forest v Newcastle United is now available in association with 888sport.

Forest 7/2

These two haven’t met since a seven-goal thriller at The City Ground in 2011 – and there’s plenty to suggest another high-scoring affair tonight.

Forest have been no strangers to seven-goal affairs this season either, with a pair of 4-3 wins at home already this term, and what scenes there would be if they could take revenge for their defeat by the same scoreline against The Toon here five years ago.

It might not be beyond the realms, either, with the league leaders reeling from two defeats in a week (albeit one of those on penalties in the cup) and The Reds on a mini-run of three games unbeaten.

Montanier’s men will certainly be confident of getting something from the match, and you can get 11/10 on the Double Chance home win or draw.

Both teams to score looks pretty likely, although the 4/6 isn’t huge so it might pay to look at both teams scoring in a draw at a shade under 4/1.

In the overs markets, +3.5 goals in the match pays 2/1, more than four is 23/5 while another +6.5 is a massive 26/1.

If you fancy a screamer, you can get Henri Lansbury at 18/1 to net from outside the box, or if you like something more prosaic, Britt Assombalonga is 14/1 to score with his head, while he’s 6/1 to net first and 15/1 to bag a brace.

For the visitors, Dwight Gayle is 31/10 to open the scoring with Ayoze Perez 23/4.

Prediction: 2-2 13/1

Bet of the night: Over 3.5 goals 2/1

Outside Punt: BTTS in both halves 23/2

Enhanced Wincast: Assombalonga to score in a home win 8/1
