On the 4th of February at 14:00 GMT, Bournemouth will welcome Nottingham Forest to the Vitality Stadium, and it is fair to say that it is a bigger Premier League match for the visitors than it is for the home side. Bournemouth will, more than likely, finish somewhere around mid-table, while Nottingham Forest are going to be in a relegation battle until the end of the season. Will Bournemouth carry on their merry way, or will Forest pick up three very big points? These are the questions that this prediction will answer.

🏆 Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest: Who Will Win?

Bournemouth, not too long ago, were nervously looking over their shoulders at the Relegation Zone, but they have gone on to become one of the form teams in the league, and are cruising to safety. In fact, from the previous ten rounds of matches, only Liverpool have picked up more points than the Cherries. They have won 6, drawn 2, and lost 2 and have jumped from 17th up to 12th in the table. They are definitely not to be taken lightly at present.

Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, are in big trouble as they are just two points above the Relegation Zone and have the threat of a points deduction hovering over them as they were found guilty of breaching Financial Fair Play rules. When it comes to form over the previous ten rounds of matches, they are third from bottom, having picked up just 7 points from the 30 that have been on offer.

When it comes to the winner of this clash, I have to go with Bournemouth as they have been playing much better football than their opponents. Form is not something that should be ignored when football betting. As for the score, I think the Cherries will win 3-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 Bournemouth 3 Nottingham Forest 1 ⚽

💯 Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest Match Odds

Now that you know what it is that I am predicting for this match, I am sure you are wondering about the type of odds that some top new UK betting sites are offering for such an outcome. If so, then your luck is in, my friend, as below I am going to provide you with the match winner, both teams to score, and over/under 2.5 goals odds that some of my favourite UK bookmakers are offering.

If you want to find out about the free bets that any of these bookies are offering, or any other aspect of the site, then just click on the brand logo in the table, and you will be taken to our review of that particular bookmaker.

Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest: Match Winner Odds

Given the difference in form between these two teams, it is not surprising to see that the bookies have Bournemouth as the clear favourites to go on and win this match. The bookies would have also taken Forest's poor head-to-head record against the Cherries into consideration as well - I will touch on this in my betting tips section. For now, I will just go ahead and supply you with the current match winner odds for this Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest match.

Draw4.104.104.204.104.00
Nottingham Forest4.504.504.754.704.60

Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest: Both Teams To Score Odds

The bookmakers believe that both teams will find the back of the net in this match, and some punters might wonder why since Forest have not exactly been efficient in front of goal this season. Well, it probably has something to do with the fact that Bournemouth have conceded an average of 1.90 goals per match. In fact, both teams have conceded 40 goals each this season, although Forest have played one game more. Below are the odds for both teams to score:

Team
Yes1.601.601.621.671.67
No2.252.252.152.152.15

Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookmakers also believe that there will be at least three goals scored in this match, and I tend to agree with them. Bournemouth can play with a bit more freedom as they know that it is unlikely that they will get dragged into a relegation battle, while Forest know that a draw does little for them. They need to start picking up three points, so should go all out for the win. The over/under 2.5 goals odds can be found below:

Over 2.51.601.601.621.661.67
Under 2.52.192.192.252.232.23

✔️ Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest - Betting Tips

I have provided you with my prediction for this game and the odds that some top British bookies are offering for three popular markets. Next on the menu are my football betting tips, and I do recommend that you give them a close read before you go ahead and place any bets on this Bournemouth vs Nottingham Forest match.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a Bournemouth win: Bournemouth have been playing fantastic football for many weeks now, and have shown us that they belong in the EPL. They do not have big names in their squad, but they play as one and are capable of giving any team in the league a good game. They also have a very good head-to-head record against Forest, picking up 6 wins, 2 draws, and 2 defeats in their last 10 meetings. LeoVegas Sports are currently offering odds of 1.76 for a home win.
  • Tip 2: Bet on over 2.5 goals: Out of Bournemouth's previous 10 matches, 7 have seen more than 2.5 goals scored, while it is also the same for the last 10 games that Forest have played in. Games that involve either of these two teams seem to have a good number of goals, which is why I am backing over 2.5 goals in this one. BetUK Sports are offering odds of 1.67 at the moment.
  • Tip 3: Bet on Dominic Solanke to score: If you like to bet on a particular player to score, then I recommend that you consider putting your hard-earned money on Solanke. He has been in fine form this season, scoring 15 goals in the 25 matches that he has played in. No other player in the team comes close to this - Justin Kluivert is in second place with 4 goals. At the time of writing, 10Bet are offering odds of 1.80 for him to score at any time.
  • Tip 4: Bet on a 3-1 correct score: If you want to bet on the correct score because of the enticing odds that are usually on offer, then Mr. Mega are currently offering odds of 10.80 for a 3-1 Bournemouth win.

1️⃣Bournemouth Update

After 10 rounds of matches, Bournemouth were sitting just one place above the Relegation Zone, and not many gave them much hope of escaping a Relegation Battle this season. However, Andoni Iraola seems to have found some magic formula as he has transformed their fortune around. They have picked up 20 points from the last 30 that have been available, and this has seen them jump to 12th in the table with a comfortable eight-point gap on the Relegation Zone. They can now start looking forward instead of behind them.

2️⃣Nottingham Forest Update

Nottingham Forest made a lot of signings in recent seasons in the hope that they would be able to secure themselves in the EPL, but they have just not managed to click. Additionally, it looks like all of these signings might end up costing them a points deduction, and that would see them more than likely relegated to the Championship. They are currently just two points above the Relegation Zone, but they have no form to speak of - 7 points from the last 30 is relegation form.
