Birmingham v Forest betting preview with 888sport

13 January 2017

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

Birmingham 53/50
Forest 13/5
Draw 47/20

With both teams struggling for form, the latest ‘888sport Derby’ promises to be a nervy affair.

Forest are on a run of five straight defeats, while the Blues are winless since a narrow 2-1 victory over Ipswich at the beginning of last month.

It’s been 19 games combined since either kept a clean sheet, so both teams scoring looks like a banker at around the 21/5 mark.

Forest won the corresponding fixture 3-1 back in October and if you fancy another high-scoring affair you can get a shade over 2/1 on +3.5 goals, 5/1 on five or more 12/1 on over six.

In the goalscorer markets, Greg Stewart leads the way at 23/5, with Che Adams and Lukas Jutkiewicz 24/5 apiece, while for the visitors Britt Assombalonga is a 5/1 shot.

Verdict: With Forest struggling at both ends, this might just be the time for Gianfranco Zola’s first win as Blues boss.

Prediction: 2-1 8/1

Outside punt: Forest HT Birmingham FT 23/1

Enhanced Wincast: Birmingham win and Craig Gardner scores 6/1, Forest win and Bendtner scores 8/1
