A Look At Ipswich’s Betting Odds

Mick McCarthy’s side are down in 15th largely due to their away form, with victory last time out at Sheffield Wednesday adding to a paltry haul of just five points from seven road fixtures so far this term.

Ipswich have been somewhat better at home, losing just once to Huddersfield at the start of last month, although one win in their past five in front of the faithful is hardly stellar.

McCarthy and co are short enough at 21/20 simply to win.

A Look At Nottingham Forest’s Betting Odds

Fortunately for the hosts, Philippe Montanier’s visitors have won just one of their past 12 in all competitions, losing seven of those fixtures including four in a row on the road.

The French tactician is yet to get on the board with a second-tier away win in eight attempts so far, taking just two points from draws at Aston Villa and Rotherham.

For punters who fancy a flutter against the grain, Forest can be backed at 5/2 to grab that elusive triumph on their travels.
