Nottingham Forest vs Birmingham City Prediction
Nottingham’s comeback in the league is a good sign for the host in the upcoming match. The host has still scored only 14 goals in their 20 league appearances so far this season. In the meantime, they have conceded an average of 1.25 goals in the campaign until now.
On the other hand, Birmingham has a better record in the goals department than the host. The visitor has slotted in 17 goals while taking in 23 goals in return during the same period.
Forest’s unbeaten streak gives a slight edge over the visitors, with the latter suffering losses. With their ground advantage, the host is likely to create more chances in the game.
The draw no bet over Nottingham Forest will probably be the best bet for the punters.
Furthermore, the tip for over 1.5 goals will come in handy from the goals area in the encounter. Besides, conceding 8 goals within the three-game losing streak puts Birmingham in a vulnerable position.
The tip for the away team to not keep a clean sheet will probably be another suitable option in the clash.
