Derby have gone four Championship games without a win but have a great chance to put that right when hosting Nottingham Forest following a tough run of fixtures.

The Rams have beaten Forest at Pride Park for the past couple of seasons, including an emphatic 3-0 triumph here last December.

We’re happy to take 39/50 for County to come out on top again in our Derby vs Nottingham Forest betting predictions.

A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds

Derby haven’t tasted victory for over a month but went into the international break in decent spirits after claiming three draws in a week.

The last of those was away to leaders Cardiff and manager Gary Rowett enthused: “I thought we were the better side, I thought we deserved to win.

“I don’t think anyone can disagree with that in the second half. We passed the ball well but didn’t quite have the little bit at the end of it.”

The Rams have generally been solid at home again this term, beating Preston 1-0 and Hull 5-0 before being held to a 1-1 stalemate by a Birmingham side which may have been inspired by the departure of Harry Redknapp.

We’re hoping they hit the ground running here and like 7/4 for County to be ahead at half-time and full-time in our Derby vs Nottingham Forest betting tips.

A Look At Nottingham Forest’s Betting Odds

Nottingham Forest stopped the rot of four straight defeats when coming from behind to beat Sheffield United 2-1 at the City Ground last time out.

With the Blades having previously enjoyed a run of six wins from seven Championship games, that form has to be respected.

However, Forest were gifted an equaliser and led at the break despite being outplayed for much of the first period.

“I could sense the tension on and off the pitch, so it felt like a very important three points,” commented manager Mark Warburton.

The visitors have been up and down on the road, with two wins and three defeats in this division, but notably have bagged at least one goal in each of their seven away games in all competitions.

That makes 5/2 for a home win and both teams to score look tempting from the Derby vs Nottingham Forest odds.
