Nottingham Forest - Reading betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 16:00 on 13/03/2021 played @ The City Ground refereed by Steve Martin

Nottingham Forest have their work cut out for them if they want to beat Reading. They are widely considered to be the weaker team – though the difference is not huge, to be fair. Overall, it’s shaping up to be an exciting showdown.

While Reading may manage to claw their way to a win yet, it will be quite a struggle. As we can see thanks to the 2.90 betting odds for an away win, the odds are stacked against them – though it’s still manageable.

While team from Nottingham’s previous loss will hurt their Championship standings, it shouldn’t have affected their confidence too much. After all, they were fighting against overwhelming odds as visitors, so the narrow 1:0 loss against Watford isn’t exactly devastating.

The Royals are here after a striking performance against Sheffield Wednesday last round. Playing in front of their fans on their home turf, they established dominance in the first 45 minutes and turned it into a convincing 3:0 win.

Forest’s previous two matches were quite uneventful, all things considered. They both featured only one goal – or no goals at all.

The Royals have yet to concede a goal over their 3 previous league matches. With that in mind, we would suggest staying away from Home Win or Both Teams to Score bets.

Though the odds are clearly in the hosts’ favour, the head-to-head history for this Championship clash tells a different story. team from Nottingham lost the last time these two teams met on the pitch, so an upset is definitely possible.

And Under 2.5 Goals is the perfect wager for this fixture. A quick glance at these teams’ statistics will tell you all you need to know about their concession rates, which is why it’s a fairly safe bet, generally priced at around 1.57.
