Nottingham Forest take on a Leeds United outfit at the City Ground hoping to start the New Year with a victory. Forest continue to make no effort in order to finish in the play-offs with the team now slipping to 10th in the table. The solace for Forest is the six-point deficit to catch Derby County in the sixth place. Leeds United have remained in the top spot but they have opened up a three-point advantage over Norwich.

Betting Tips for the game
Millwall were able to come up with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest to deliver yet another blow for Aitor Karanka’s men, who are now winless in five matches. The last victory for Forest was against Ipswich Town at the start of December.
Leeds United had a fabulous seven-game winning streak come to an end after a 2-0 loss against Hull City. However, the impact of this defeat is mitigated by a defeat for Norwich City.
The reverse fixture back in October witnessed Leeds and Nottingham Forest playing out a 1-1 draw. Leeds had picked up a 2-0 win when they last visited the City Ground. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Leeds.

Nottingham Forest continue to go through a poor run of form and the narrow away defeat against Millwall makes it five games without a victory for Forest, whose play-off hopes are vanishing rather quickly. Meanwhile, Leeds United have been able to remain clear at the top of the table despite a home defeat against Hull City. The latest result may act as a wake-up call for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, who had gone on a run of seven consecutive wins. Our preview would go with a win for Leeds United.

Correct Score odds
The recent games between the two clubs have been close draws but Leeds United will be looking to come up with an immediate response to the loss against Hull City. Leeds have managed just one clean sheet in the last five games and this trait was exposed by Nigel Adkins’ team. Meanwhile, Forest remain low on goals with the team failing to find the back of the net in four out of the last five games. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Leeds.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The majority of the games involving Leeds United over the last few weeks have produced plenty of goals, but this game should feature less than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.90[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Lewis Grabban has been unable to score in his last five matches, but the striker is coming under pressure in order to find the back of the net quickly and not lose out on the Golden Boot race. Meanwhile, Kemar Roofe is just one shy of catching Grabban, who has 13 league goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Roofe.
