Nottingham Forest hope to maximise on a home match against strugglers Ipswich Town in the Championship action this weekend. Forest dropped three points behind Sheffield United after the midweek result, and the team certainly need more of victories going forward. Ipswich Town remain at the bottom of the table with the same six-point requirement to catch Millwall in the 21st place. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Nottingham Forest were involved in an incredible 5-5 draw with Aston Villa in the midweek action. This was an incredible result that extended the club’s unbeaten run in the league to 6 matches.
Ipswich Town lost for a second consecutive game as Bristol City came back twice in the match to pick up a 3-2 win. Ipswich are heading for a third consecutive loss for the first time in Paul Lambert’s regime.
The recent game between these two clubs witnessed a 2-1 win for Nottingham Forest at the City Ground. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Nottingham Forest.

Ipswich are not in a great position to go for victories. After having witnessed Nottingham Forest put together a sensational run of results with just one defeat at home in the 2018-19 campaign, Ipswich may have a defensive approach. However, the game against Bristol clearly showed that Lambert’s team have confidence issues that could prevent them from making a major impact if things do not go well. Forest have been functioning well of late and our preview would go with a success for Forest.

Correct Score odds
Nottingham Forest come on the back of a five goal haul against Aston Villa in the midweek action. It is highly unlikely that a repeat of the same would take place, but Ipswich have the potential to collapse if they concede early. Forest have had a decent set of results at home against Ipswich with eight goals in the last five. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Forest.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Forest have a rich attacking line-up which has contributed to a fair number of goals this season. Ipswich may be struggling for goals but there has been an improvement from the league’s bottom club going forward. Freddie Sears’ brace against Bristol will provide the team with confidence in coming matches. Even if both teams fail to score, Forest have enough attacking potential to come up with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Lewis Grabban came up with the brace against Aston Villa in the midweek action as he moved on to 12 league goals for the campaign. The forward has been in scintillating form this season with goals in seven out of his last nine games across all competitions. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Grabban.
