Nottingham Forest vs Leeds United Odds

Nottingham Forest currently sits as the slight favorite sitting at +165 while Leeds United currently sits at +170. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals with the over cashing at -115. 

Nottingham Forest Betting Preview

Nottingham Forest currently sits in 13th place in the standings having picked 21 points. On Wednesday Nottingham Forest faced off against Manchester United and that game ended in a 2-0 defeat. Nottingham Forest had 25 percent of the possession and three shots on target. Jonjo Shelvey, Andrew Ayew, and Felipe are all newcomers, but they all could play in this game. It’s hard to imagine that any of the guys are going to start, but they all could come off the bench. Starting goalkeeper Dean Henderson is still dealing with a hamstring injury and won’t be able to go in this game. Keylor Navas is the backup but will get the start here. 

Leeds United Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Leeds United who sits in 15th place having picked up 18 points. Last Saturday, Leeds United faced off against Accrington Stanley in the FA Cup and they were able to secure a 3-1 victory. Jack Harrison scored in the 23rd minute to open the scoring, and they never looked back as they cruised to the victory. Leeds had 59 percent of the possession and 10 shots on target. Leeds United was busy during the transfer market and they brought in some key players including American Weston McKennie. Rodrigo underwent ankle surgery and he’s still going to be out for this game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Leeds United’s offense has a ton of confidence heading into this game, and even away from home, they have found success scoring. Look for Leeds United to score two or three goals and that is going to be the difference as they are going to get the job done on the road. Back Leeds United on the money line to cash.
