Forest v Norwich betting preview with 888sport

16 September 2016

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

Forest 12/5

The Forest goal-rush shows no sign of abating, with successive 2-2 draws bringing the total number of strikes in Reds games this term to 36, an average of four per match.

Encounters involving Saturday’s visitors Norwich haven’t exactly been dull either, with eight goals in their two most recent matches alone, so all the ingredients are there for yet another high-scoring affair. 

To that end, over 3.5 goals in the match is a 23/10 shot, but the value surely lies in backing five goals or more at 11/2.

Forest will feel they should have garnered more than two points from their games against Villa and Rotherham but they still find themselves just a point behind the promotion places, and can now be backed at 6/1 to finish in the top six.

Norwich arrive after narrow back-to-back home wins against relegation favourites Cardiff and Wigan, but they were unconvincing and Forest look great value at 12/5 to get the points.

Nicklas Bendtner could make his full debut and is 15/2 to open the scoring, with Britt Assombalonga 24/5 and Apostolos Vellios 6/1.

For the visitors, Nelson Oliveira is 23/5, with Cameron Jerome and Kyle Lafferty both 5/1.

Prediction: 3-2 Forest 31/1

Bet of the day: Home win and BTTS 5/1

Outside punt: Bendtner to score last goal in 3-2 win 200/1
