Match odds

Nottingham Forest have been quite inconsistent over the last few weeks and it has resulted in the team dropping to ninth place in the league table. Over the last six matches in the Championship, Forest have been able to come up with only two victories. Preston, however, have picked up the second-highest tally of points (14) in the last six matches with only Bristol ahead of them in this table. Preston have been playing some brilliant football of late and the midweek win over Norwich will give them even more confidence, which makes our preview go with a home win.

Preston vs Nottingham Forest draw odds: 3.40

Nottingham Forest win odds: 4.00

Correct Score odds

Preston have been quite good going forward over the last few weeks and the club’s big win over Norwich will certainly provide plenty of avenues for the team to build even further. Forest have every reason to be disappointed with a defence that has leaked goals. The last clean sheet for Forest was almost two months ago. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Preston.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The latest match involving Preston may have produced over 3.5 goals, but it is one of the three examples of a very high scoring game involving Preston over the last two months. Since both teams are capable of scoring in this match, our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Preston have opened the scoring in four out of the last five matches and Alan Browne has been their most important player this season. The 23-year-old has been able to get an incredible 11 goals and four assists – including man of the match performances in the last two away games for the club. Even though his last goal at the Deepdale Stadium was on Boxing Day, our first goalscorer prediction would pick Alan Browne.
