Blackburn v Forest betting preview with 888sport

18 October 2016

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

Blackburn 7/5

The Reds are 2/1 to make it back-to-back wins and grab their first away victory of the season when they travel to Blackburn on Tuesday night.

Philippe Montanier will be hoping Friday’s excellent 3-1 win over Birmingham will provide the springboard for a good run he believes his side are due, and they will fancy their chances against an inconsistent home team.

The hosts managed their first clean sheet of the season at the weekend in a 0-0 draw with Ipswich, but while that came as a boost, a lack of ammunition going forward could continue to blunt their progress.

With no goals in their last three matches and only ten in the league all season, Forest will be hopeful of a first clean sheet of their own this term.

However, this has been an evenly-matched encounter in recent times, with the last three ending in draws, and the 23/10 about another stalemate looks like the sensible bet, with a score draw appealing at 7/2.

Nicklas Bendtner’s injury is likely to mean a start for Britt Assombalonga, who is 17/4 to open the scoring, with Apostolos Vellios 23/4 and Henri Lansbury 9/1.

With a tight encounter predicted, under 2.5 goals at 9/10 looks a solid selection.

Prediction: 1-1 23/4 

Bet of the night: Score draw 7/2

Outside punt: Eric Lichaj to score first 37/1
