Reading v Forest: betting preview with 888sport

31 October 2017

Nottingham Forest's official club partner 888sport has provided the latest odds ahead of tonight's Sky Bet Championship trip to Reading.

Reading 23/20

Draw 47/20

Forest 23/10

Forest are a shade over 2/1 to make it three wins in a row and fuel hopes of a promotion push with victory at Reading this evening.

The Reds, triumphant in two of their last four fixtures on the road, are currently 25/1 with 888sport to win promotion, but those odds will likely be slashed should Warburton’s men bag the points at the Madjeski.

And the omens look good, with the hosts winning just one of the last six matches at home and Forest taking the spoils the last time these two met, a 3-2 win in April at The City Ground.

This fixture tends to produce goals, with 21 scored in the last six encounters, so take a chance on +3.5 tonight at 5/2.

Forest have bagged at least twice in three of their last four matches and are 19/10 to keep up that average, while it’s 18/5 on the visitors scoring in both halves.

The hat-trick hero at Hull, Kieran Dowell, is a whopping 9/1 to open the scoring and 125/1 to bag another treble.

Others in the first-scorer markets include Daryl Murphy at 23/4, Jason Cummings at 13/2 and Ben Osborn at 11/1.

Prediction: Reading 1-3 Forest 25/1

Bet of the night: Forest win and both score 21/4

Enhanced Wincast: Murphy to score and Forest to win now 6/1 (was 5/1)
