Forest Are Odds On

Forest Are Odds On

They may not have finished as the division's best non-promoted club, but Colin Calderwood's men are still classed as Premierbet's 21/20 favourites to go up via the play-offs ahead of third-placed Blackpool (9/4, Coral.co.uk). However a negative result for the Reds at Yeovil will push those odds out considerably.

Despite Forest being 1/2 with William Hill to reach the final ahead of this weekend's clash they are marginal outsiders at 9/5 (bet365) to take a lead back to the City Ground with the hosts a 6/4 shot (Betdaq) and the draw quoted by Portlandbet at 9/4.

But Forest should at the least avoid defeat and backing them in Blue Square's handicap betting at 8/15, should be a tempting proposition for the cautious as therein Calderwood's troops look a banker with a one-goal head start.



Less clear-cut is the total goals market, as the hosts' last four matches have featured fewer than three goals, but three of the Reds' last four have yielded more than two. With so much at stake this match will almost certainly be tight and it's for this reason that a total of fewer than 2.5 goals (8/13, Stan James) appeals slightly more than a tally of over 2.5 (11/8, Extrabet).
