Boro betting preview

18 August 2017

Middlesbrough are the visitors to The City Ground on Saturday as Nottingham Forest return home as they continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Club partner 888Sport takes a look at the latest odds for the mouthwatering clash…

Nottingham Forest 9/4
Middlesbrough 6/5
Draw 9/4

Promotion favourites Middlesbrough provide the opposition as Forest looks to bounce back from their first reverse of the season.

Despite the tight defeat at Barnsley, The Reds dominated the game and were unlucky not to take at least a point to build on their opening two wins.

Boro will be a tough nut to crack having conceded just once this season, but they've only found the net three times themselves which points to a low-scoring affair this afternoon.

Get Evens on under 2.5 goals in the match or 12/5 on a goal or less, while in the correct score markets bag 11/2 on 1-1, 9/1 on the 1-0 home win and 9s on a goalless draw.

Andreas Bouchalakis has already found the net twice this term and is a massive 20/1 to open the scoring. Daryl Murphy, who equalised in the week is 21/4 favourite, with Zach Clough 13/2.

Prediction: 1-1 11/2
Bet of the day: Draw and both to score 17/5
