Nottingham Forest - Luton Town betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:45 on 02/03/2021 played @ The City Ground

Betting odds can be illusive at times and Luton Town are more than capable of pulling an upset. However, Nottingham Forest should have a clear path to victory if they stick to the plan.

The matchup this Tuesday is rather one-sided, with Luton Town seen as the clear underdogs. Most bookmakers online have priced their victory at 3.80, which is enough to doubt such an outcome will happen.

Forest managed to scrape together a 1:1 draw at the end of their previous Championship showdown at Derby County , which came as a surprise to many. They were clear underdogs in this away game, so the lead they had at half-time was even more shocking.

Luton Town’s victory was priced at 7.75 going into their previous home match, so calling them underdogs would be an understatement. Despite falling behind in the first half and very hard matchup with Sheffield Wednesday, they went home with a hard-fought 3:2 victory.

No one has been able to get past Forest’s defence on their home turf for at least three consecutive matches which is a good testament of strength for their back line.

Results and standings notwithstanding, Luton Town have run into some defensive issues in this stretch of the Championship. In the past 3 matches, they allowed more than 5 goals to their opponents, which may be cause for concern for their supporters.

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.

With zero injuries reported across the board, this is shaping up to be an exciting outing indeed. Both teams will have their complete squads at their disposal, so we can fully expect them to bring their A-game.

The 1.70 offered for Under 2.5 Goals bets in this match may seem a bit risky considering the market, but they’re well worth it compared to the probability of the outcome. That said, it’s a solid choice for value, but not necessarily safety.

Betting tip (stake: 6/10): Under 2,5 1.70 at Betsson
