Despite only picking up one point so far, Nottingham Forest are priced at 23/20 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market to register their first win of the season tonight at Doncaster.
The hosts, meanwhile, are valued at 9/4 for a win, with a draw between the two sides available at the same odds.
Steve McClaren’s side have struggled this season so far and have failed to score in their opening two matches. This run could also be set to continue at the Keepmoat Stadium as Forest have only scored once in their last three clashes with Rovers.
Forest will be looking to Northern Irish goalkeeper Lee Camp to help them keep a clean sheet after only conceding 50 goals last season – the fourth best record in the Championship. Punters who think the visitors will notch all three points can back them at 5/2 to win the match without conceding any goals.
Doncaster have also had a poor start to the campaign with two losses out of two in the league so far, despite finishing their pre-season preparations strongly by winning their last three friendlies.
However, Sean O’Driscoll’s men would have gathered some confidence after a comprehensive 3-0 win against Tranmere Rovers in the Carling Cup last week.
One factor in Rovers’ favour is that the home team have been unbeaten in three of the last five meetings between the sides, while they have also avoided defeat in their last clashes with Forest.
Football betting fans who believe home advantage will tell can use their £25 free bet for joining bwin.com on Doncaster to win 2-1 and potentially pocket a return of £262.50.
However, most of the smart money is likely to go on Forest kick-starting their promotion push with a vital victory on the road.
