Derby County - Nottingham Forest betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:45 on 26/02/2021 played @ Pride Park Stadium

With a difficult matchup ahead of them, Derby County will need to focus if they want to bring in another 3 points. They are not overwhelmingly outmatched by any means, but they are generally seen as the underdogs compared to Nottingham Forest.

team from Nottingham are coming into this match as underdogs, though the difference is not overwhelming. Even so, they’re not all that likely to win. An Away Win bet is priced at 3.20 with top online bookies, which could bring a decent profit.

Derby came into their previous Championship match against Huddersfield Town as slight favourites, but not many betting predictions expected such success. They turned a slight edge in form and home-field advantage into a decisive 2:0 victory.

Rotherham United were tagged as favourites in Nottingham Forest’s away game in the previous round, but Nottingham Forest prevailed in the end. The first half ended inconclusively, but they managed to come out on top and win 0:1.

Derby County have a notably poor defensive record when it comes to playing as visitors. We’re mostly referring to the 5 conceded goals over their latest 3 away games. They are playing as hosts this time around, but you should be aware before you put down any money.

Forest have an excellent defensive track record at the moment with no concessions in their previous 3 home games. Although they’re playing without home-field advantage this Friday, we would keep their rock-solid defence in mind for betting purposes.

If there’s one thing to note about the history of this matchup, it’s a fact their matches tend to end in a draw. Several matches this season ended inconclusively, so it neems neither team is able to reliably tip the scales one way or another.

Betting on a Draw is likely to be your best option, though it’s a relatively risky wager. It offers decent value with the 3.40 odds, though, which can be found at top online bookmakers such as bet365.

Betting tip (stake: 5/10): Draw 3.40 at bet365
