Bet of the Day: Forest fancied for away win in Boro battle

14th September 2021

Nottingham Forest beat Middlesbrough is Bet of the Day for 02/03/20

Nottingham Forest beat Middlesbrough odds look well worth a wager based on current form this Monday.

This Championship clash pits fourth from top against third bottom. Hosts Boro are without victor in all competitions since New Year’s Day.

An 11-match winless run, coupled with Jonathan Woodgate’s side not taking three points at home since Boxing Day, means the home team are in trouble.

That wretched Middlesbrough form is in stark contrast to Forest, meanwhile. In recent weeks, they have won at Brentford and Cardiff City besides drawing away to league leaders West Bromwich Albion.

A repeat of any of those performances on Teesside will surely be enough for an away win.

Plenty points to Savri Lamouchi’s team taking the spoils back to Nottingham, so it’s surprising Forest aren’t shorter in the bookmaker betting on this.

As they have also won on two of their last three trips to The Riverside, Boro have it all to do to stop the visitors.

Why Nottingham Forest beat Middlesbrough odds appeal

Woodgate’s small squad haven’t scored in their last three matches, twice drawing a blank on their own patch.

On that basis, Nottingham Forest beat Middlesbrough odds of 17/10 with Betway are worth backing.

Lamouchi has only seen his side fail to score four times all season. Now up against a Boro defence that has conceded eight in their last five matches, Forest should have too much firepower.

The visitors have also kept consecutive clean sheets coming into this game. Given Middlesbrough’s problems in attack, a Forest win to nil at 7/2 with Boylesports is another wager to consider.

Boro are now fighting for their lives in the relegation scrap with recent results for Huddersfield Town, Stoke City, Wigan and Charlton Athletic all going against them.

Forest can heap further woe on Woodgate here with an away win looking a solid bet.

Bet of the Day: 17/10 with Betway, Nottingham Forest beat Middlesbrough in the Championship.
