Nottingham Forest vs Luton Prediction

Forest were on the road the last match-day, and unluckliy were held to a 1-1 draw by Reading. Both goals had come in the space of one minute late into the injury time.

In the meantime, Luton were at home, and still were defeated. The opponents were Birmingham, and the scoreline was 1-2.

This Sunday, by all means the favorites are Nottingham. First of all they are currently in possession of a playoff spot, and have been one of the titans of the Championship for quite some time. On top of that, they have the home advantage too.

On the other hand, Luton are placed dead-last in the table, and a new addition to this competition, as they had gained promotion just this last summer. To pile on, they also have to deal with the away handicap.

Moreover, Forest were unbeaten in four of their last five overall fixtures (of which three were wins), and the sole loss had come on the road against PL outfit Chelsea. 

At home, they are on a winning streak of two appearances, and were unbeaten in ten of their last thirteen match-ups.

Meanwhile, Luton are on a four-game losing run, and were winless in 14 of their previous 16 games. They also had lost 13 of these 16 fixtures. On the road, they are on a ten-match losing run, and conceded a total of 30 goals from their prior nine trips.

Finally, Nottingham hold a 100% winning record against this opponent this past decade, and have not conceded a single goal from them at this venue in the said period.

Taking into account these observations, it’s adjudged that Nottingham Forest are in line to deliver a massive win this Sunday. Brave punters could also back Forest to score in both halves at 2.40 odd, and to score over 1.5 goals at 1.60 odd.
