Nottingham Forest fans could see their play-off hopes dashed this week by a travelling Foxes side that boasts an impressive run over their idols.
Sven-Goran Eriksson’s men have won three of the last four meetings with Forest taking the spoils in the last two encouutners without conceding a goal.
While stretching that run further may seem unlikely, the 9/2 odds on the Foxes to win to nil tomorrow night (April 22nd) could attract a lot of attention. A £10 bet at those odds would mean a return of £55.
Leicester currently lie 11th in the Coca Cola Championship so a win at the City Ground against a Forest side sitting just two points outside the play-off places could be a tall task. As such the visitors are priced at 21/10 to come away with a victory and can be backed at 11/5 to hold their hosts to a draw.
The chance to strut their stuff in the Premier League should be enough to motivate Billy Davies’ side and a win could see them move into the play-off places should promotion rivals Leeds slip up against Reading at Elland Road.
As such, the Reds are priced at a narrow 11/10 to secure three points.
However, the Tricky Trees have not had things their own way of late, having lost four of their last five games including a 4-1 hammering at the hands of Leeds.
While Forest fans would like an assured run into the play-offs they have no complaints in the entertainment stakes as their side have been involved in some high scoring fixtures.
Tonight’s hosts have scored nine and conceded 13 in their last five games, meaning the match against Leicester should be a high scoring affair.
Both teams have shown they can last the distance in matches this term, coming good with goals late on in a number of ties.
Forest have hit 15 of their 55 goals in the last 15 mintues, while the Foxes have netted the same number of times during that period.
Therefore punters looking to bulk up their bwin football betting account with a special market could be tempted by the 18/5 odds being offered on three or more goals being scored in the second half.
