Ipswich Town FC vs Nottingham Forest FC – Betting Tips for the game
Ipswich bagged their fifth draw in six matches after settling for a 1-1 scoreline against Bristol City on the road. Adam Webster opened the scoring for Ipswich in the first period but they were pegged back following the break after a Lloyd Kelly own goal.
Forest, meanwhile, suffered their second loss in three matches after Aston Villa beat them 3-1 in front of their fans. John McGinn starred for the Villains with a quick-fire brace within the opening 15 minutes.
The previous encounter between the sides was at City Ground in December which Forest won 2-0. The last meeting at Portman Road witnessed a 4-2 triumph for Ipswich in 2017. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a stalemate.
Ipswich Town FC vs Nottingham Forest FC – Match odds
Ipswich have gone winless for the past 10 league games but they have still shown a defensive resolve which has contributed to five draws in the past six matches. Hence, we are fancying them to continue the recent run of stalemates, as the visitors have not performed at their best on the road with no wins since November. Our preview is to go with a draw.
Ipswich Town win odds: 3.75
Nottingham Forest win odds: 2.10
Ipswich Town FC vs Nottingham Forest FC – Correct Score odds
Ipswich have netted one goal in each of the past five matches but their inability to keep clean sheets has produced four draws and a single defeat. This trend may continue against Forest this weekend despite the visitors scoring in just one away game this year. Forest have netted in each of the past two trips to Ipswich and our correct score prediction favours a 1-1 draw.
Ipswich Town FC vs Nottingham Forest FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Ipswich have produced a better defensive display in their recent survival push with 1-1 being the scoreline in five of their previous six matches. This has been the outcome in the majority of Forest’s away games this year amid the inconsistency in terms of scoring. Our total goals prediction is to go for less than 2.5 goals.
Ipswich Town FC vs Nottingham Forest FC – First Goalscorer odds
Lewis Grabban has recently shown signs of returning to form for Forest with a goal and an assist in the past three games. The 31-year-old has an impressive record against Ipswich with six goals in just seven meetings and this includes the brace in a 2-0 triumph earlier in the season. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Grabban.
