Easter Saturday’s late afternoon game in the Championship sees Nottingham Forest host Bristol City with both teams desperate to avoid the dreaded drop to League One.
The home side are in good form of late, gaining eight points from the last 12 available, and are priced up as 4/5 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Their shock 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace last time out saw Steve Cotterill’s men rise to 19th place, six points clear of the bottom three.
They go in to this game as odds on favourites at 4/5, with the visitors priced at 16/5. The draw is 5/2.
Bristol City’s point against Derby County last time out was not enough to prevent them slipping into the relegation zone.
No team has failed to hit the net in more games than Derek McInnes’ men, who are also, perhaps unsurprisingly, the lowest scorers in the league with just 34 goals to their name.
The Robins have just one win in their last 13 games, which is perhaps why they are lengthy 7/2 outsiders to triumph at the City Ground, with the draw available at 5/2.
The omens do not look good for City, as they have not won on the road since their shock 1-0 victory at league leaders Southampton at the end of December.
Furthermore, no team has failed to hit the net in more games than Derek McInnes’ men, who are also, perhaps unsurprisingly, the lowest scorers in the league with just 34 goals to their name.
With this in mind, you might be tempted to back the home side to take all three points without conceding in the process at 37/20.
Punters who use their free £25 bet for registering with bwin will see a return of £71.25 if they are correct in backing Forest to win in this manner.
Both teams failed to score in the return fixture back in December, though with the home side seemingly on the rise, a repeat of that scoreline looks highly unlikely – so backing Forest to win and keep a clean sheet is the way to go here.
Recommended bet: Nott’m Forest to beat Bristol City without conceding @ 2/1
