Nottingham Forest Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

Brighton are rightful favourites but 6/1 on Forest represents significant value. The hosts are without a goal in over three hours of play and have still not won under their new manager, suggesting that Steve Cooper can grab a rare point for Forest.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

Both of Forest’s league draws this season ended with a 1-1 scoreline and it may be a bit over the top to suggest that they’ll be able to manage anything better than that here after losing seven of the opening ten league games.

Brighton vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

  • Brighton haven’t scored a goal in over three hours of play.
  • Forest are unbeaten in seven of the last 12 H2H encounters.
  • Both of Forest’s Premier League draws ended with a 1-1 scoreline.
  • Forest have progressively lost by smaller margins across their last three away games.

The Seagulls have had their wings clipped

A run of back-to-back defeats without reply is hardly ideal for Brighton & Hove Albion, although the visit of basement dwellers Nottingham Forest could prove to be just the tonic for that.

Roberto De Zerbi is still yet to win a game as the Brighton boss (D1, L2), suggesting that the players are yet to get over the loss of their much-loved former manager Graham Potter. The Seagulls are unbeaten in seven of their last eight home league games though, so that win could come in this game.

While a Brighton win is certainly the most likely outcome due to the state of their opposition, their strong odds on price provides very little in the way of value. Especially for an out of sorts side that rock-bottom Forest may be targeting for their first away win of the season.

Forest aren’t pulling up any trees

Siding with Forest is certainly not wise in most cases, although we predict that this may be one of the few occasions in which it might pay… or at the very least it provides value at 6/1 for a straight win. Such prices are usually saved for Premier League sides away to the likes of City and other top, top sides.

Forest might have disgraced themselves on social media ahead of their latest game at Wolves, but they certainly didn’t on the pitch. A 1-0 loss was ultimately disappointing but Forest matched Wolves all the way and actually had more goal attempts, suggesting that they just need to find a cutting edge.

Playing the percentages

While a home win will surprise nobody, we’re going to play the percentages here with a gradually improving Forest side looking like good value to at least avoid defeat in this encounter. That sentiment is reflected by our small stakes 1-1 draw correct score prediction.

Look out for Brighton’s Leandro Trossard, he recently became the first opposition player since Andrey Arshavin to net a hat-trick at Anfield and has four goals across his last four league appearances.
