Nottingham Forest vs. Newcastle United Analysis
This season was always going to be a tough one for Nottingham Forest after their promotion from the Championship last term. However, they have recovered from a poor start and have lifted themselves away from the bottom three of late.
Nottingham Forest is without a win in five, losing three and drawing two since a 1-0 success over Leeds United in early February. Last weekend, the Reds lost 3-1 at Tottenham Hotspur.
Forest’s away form has been dreadful, but Steve Cooper’s men have been superb at home in recent months.
They are undefeated at the City Ground in the Premier League since a 3-2 loss to Fulham way back in September. Their home form could keep them up this season.
Newcastle United’s Quest
Newcastle United has gone off the boil in recent months, but Eddie Howe’s boys are still in with a chance of securing a UEFA Champions League place, which would be a monumental achievement for the club.
After just one Premier League win in eight and no victories in five (three draws, two defeats), Newcastle picked up a massive three points in their last matchup. Goals from Alexander Isak and Miguel Almiron gave the Magpies a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at St James’ Park.
The latest Newcastle United standings look much better after those three points.
Both sides are desperate for points for different reasons, and this promises to be an entertaining Premier League matchup in Nottinghamshire.
Can Forest make home advantage count again, or will Newcastle build on the Wolves’ win? Our Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle prediction is below.
- Nottingham Forest: +450
- Newcastle United: -150
- Draw: +260
- Nottingham Forest +1: +115
- Newcastle United -1: +188
- Over 2.5 Goals: +110
- Under 2.5 Goals: -138
Nottingham Forest vs. Newcastle United Betting Pick and Prediction
Nottingham Forest is giving themselves a great chance of Premier League survival due to their home form. This season, Cooper’s troops have seen off West Ham United, Liverpool, Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Leeds at the City Ground.
Newcastle is having a campaign to remember under the popular Howe. They reached the EFL Cup final last month and are just four points behind fourth-place Tottenham with two games in hand.
Despite Forest’s unbeaten home record in the league since September, we fancy Newcastle to return to Tyneside with a huge three points in the bank. This could be a high-scoring affair, so when making your soccer betting picks, back the away win and over 2.5 goals at +188.
Almiron is having an exceptional season at St James’.
The former Atlanta United star has scored 11 Premier League goals this term, including the winner against Wolves last weekend. The Peruvian is priced at +300 to net anytime in this one.
