Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 2/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves enjoying impressive extended unbeaten runs, Nottingham Forest will welcome Hull to the City Ground on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while Nottingham Forest might have found themselves enduring a nightmare start to the 2021/22 campaign, the Reds have certainly bounced back. Managing to find an immediate boost after bringing Steve Cooper to the City Ground, the one-time European champions have skyrocketed their way up the Championship table. Last seen landing a thumping 4-1 win away at Cooper’s former employers Swansea, the mood in Forest’s camp will be at a red-hot high. Finding a way to build off of their deserved 2-0 win against relegation scrappers Peterborough on December 4th, Saturday’s hosts are now unbeaten in each of their last eight straight outings, a run that stems back to their 4-0 drumming against Fulham back in October. Likewise, it should also be noted that Cooper’s side have lost just one of their previous seven matchups on home soil.
As for the visitors, after watching Bristol City snatch a last-gasp point in their 2-2 draw last weekend, there is no doubt that Hull will be hoping for an immediate response here. Really managing to find their own boost over the past six weeks, Grant McCann’s men have played their way out of the drop zone. Looking to extend on their Championship status after making their second-tier return earlier in the year, the Tigers are enjoying a hugely impressive six-match unbeaten run, a run that stems back to November 3rd. Mustering seven points from just their last three contests away from the KCOM, some in Hull’s camp could be confident of springing an upset on the road. It should be noted, with each of the last nine straight meetings between Saturday’s opponents finishing with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome at the City Ground.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Nottingham Forest vs Hull City 2/5 for Saturday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
