Forest are priced at 4.50 to secure the maximum points, but we don’t fancy them to attain the result. Forest have been largely inconsistent since December and it has not aided their away run where they have managed just three points. West Brom have found wins hard to come by at the Hawthorns but they should take advantage of Forest’s recent goalless streak on the road. Our preview is to go with a West Brom win.

West Brom vs Nottingham Forest draw odds: 3.75
Nottingham Forest win odds: 4.50
Correct Score odds
West Brom have scored in every home game this term and they have netted eight times in the past five matches at the Hawthorns. In comparison, Forest have endured a mixed bag on their travels and they come into the game with just three goals – all of the goals coming in a single game – in the previous five away trips. A slender triumph for the hosts is likely to be the order of the day and with a possible shutout. Our correct score prediction is to go with a West Brom 1-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
West Brom have gone through a recent trend of stalemates in their stadium and it has contributed to the majority of the games since December producing less than three goals. Another low-scorer could be on the cards against Forest, as they have failed to score in any of the previous three away trips. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Dwight Gayle has recently leapfrogged Jay Rodriguez as West Brom’s highest scorer with 16 goals this term. The Newcastle United loanee has netted thrice in the past four league games and, he has managed to grab the first goal on two occasions. Our first goalscorer prediction fancies Gayle to continue his good vein of form.
