Coventry vs Nottingham Forest Prediction

With both teams coming into the game with a mixed form, it is not likely to clear as to what to expect from the sides. However, Coventry has failed to score in their winless clashes. Since the host is the favorite to win at Birmingham with their ground advantage, expect a couple of goals in ninety minutes.

Nottingham Forest is on decent form in the campaign with their recent unbeaten streak. But they haven’t been at their best away from home. This gives a slight edge for the home team, but the Forest will likely score against the host despite the result.

Based on these stats, the tip for BTTS will probably be a suitable option in the goals area. Besides, the double chance favoring Coventry will probably be the best bet for the punters regarding their ground advantage in the encounter.
