What's better than mid-week Premier League action? Not a lot, should be your answer to this question. On the 30th of January, Nottingham Forest will welcome Arsenal to the City Ground, with kick-off scheduled for 19:30. Nottingham Forest are in desperate need of points as they are hovering above the Relegation Zone, while Arsenal need the points in order to keep the pressure on Liverpool, City, and Villa. Keep on reading to find out who I think will go on and claim the three important points that are on offer.

🏆 Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Who Will Win?

Nottingham Forest lost 3-2 to Brentford at the weekend, but they can consider themselves slightly unlucky not to have walked away with at least a point. With the threat of a points deduction hovering over their head, they need every single point that they can muster, and even that will probably not be enough to see them beat the drop. Their main issue this season has been conceding goals - only Bournemouth, Burnley, and Sheffield United have conceded more. They are currently 12th in the Premier League form game, having picked up 7 points from their previous 6 matches.

Arsenal blew Crystal Palace away in their previous EPL match, winning 5-0, which was not the type of score that I was expecting. Arteta's men played really well, while the Palace players should be pretty embarrassed with their performance. This was a much-needed win for Arsenal as they had only picked up 1 point from the previous nine available. This win has left them five points behind Liverpool, who occupy the top spot. They are 10th in the EPL form table, with 7 points from the last 18 on offer, and they will know that they will have to improve on this if they are to challenge for the title.

Given where both teams sit in the EPL table, my money is on Arsenal to leave Nottingham with all three points in the bag. As a Villa fan, I would prefer a home win, but I just cannot see it happening. If I were to predict a score for this match, I would opt for Arsenal to come out on top 3-1.

My Prediction: 🏆 Nottingham Forest 1 Arsenal 3 ⚽

💯 Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal Match Odds

You will not struggle to find established and new UK betting sites that offer their punters football markets and odds, but you might find it hard to find quality in amongst all of the mediocrity.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Match Winner Odds

When you look at the odds that the top sports betting sites are offering for the winner of this match, then you will probably not be too surprised to see that Arsenal are the overwhelming favourites. This will be due to where both teams are currently sitting in the league and the fact that Arsenal are one of the top scorers, while Forest are one of the teams that concede the most.

Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Both Teams To Score Odds

Arsenal are averaging 2.00 goals per match, which is a tally that is only bettered by Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Tottenham. Nottingham Forest, on the other hand, are averaging just 1.28 goals per match. However, it must be said that they have improved as of late as can be seen from the fact that they have scored 10 goals in their previous six matches. As can be seen from the table below, the bookies are pretty unsure when it comes to whether both teams will find the back of the net.


Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

When it comes to the number of goals that will be scored in this match, the top sports betting sites believe that there will be goals aplenty in this match, and I am inclined to agree with them. I do not see Arsenal having any issues putting the ball past Turner in Forest's goal a good number of times, while it is not too far-fetched to see Forest nicking a consolation goal. Below you can find the odds that our five selected bookies are currently offering for the over/under 2.5 goals market.

✔️ Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal - Betting Tips

Now that we have given you the odds that some of the top British bookies are currently offering for three of the most football betting markets, I shall now take the time to provide you with football betting tips for this Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal prediction.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Arsenal to win: Both teams are at opposite ends of the table, but they are quite close to each other when it comes to recent form in the English Premier League. However, Arsenal looked really good against Crystal Palace last Saturday, and if they put in a similar kind of performance, then they should walk away with all three points under their belt. I think Arteta's men will have too much quality for Forest, and BetUK Sports are currently offering *goto BetUK-Sports[odds of 1.42] for an Arsenal win.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: This really is a toss of a coin, but I am going to recommend that you put money on both teams to find the back of the net in this match. Arsenal do have the second-best defense in the league, but Nottingham Forest have scored in all but one of their previous six league matches, so I can see them getting the ball past David Raya in the Arsenal goal. If you want to bet on both teams to score, then 10Bet are currently offering odds of 1.85 for this outcome.
  • Tip 3: Bet on over 2.5 goals: In the previous 10 matches that these two teams have played in all competitions, there has been a total of 31 goals scored, which gives us an average of 3.1 goals per match. It seems that goals are never in short supply when Arsenal and Forest clash, which is why I am happy to recommend that you consider betting on there being 3 or more goals in this match. If you want to bet on this market, then 10Bet have odds of 1.67.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Arsenal to win 3-1: If you are the kind of punter that likes to put money on the correct result of a match because of the enticing odds that are available, then my predicted scoreline for this game is Arsenal to win 3-1. At the time of writing, LeoVegas are offering odds of 11.00 for this market.

1️⃣ Nottingham Update

Nottingham Forest are just four points above the Relegation Zone, so are in dire need of some points. However, they have recently been charged with breaching financial fair play rules so, just like Everton, they could be hit with a points deduction in a couple of months. If they are, I feel that it will be impossible for them to avoid the drop into the second division of English football. Nuno Espirito Santo has to keep their spirits up because they cannot play each match thinking about what might be. Since he took over, they have been playing some decent football and will be confident about staying ahead of their relegation rivals.

Nuno Espirito Santo has several players that he cannot call upon for this Arsenal clash, mostly due to the fact that they have been selected to play for their countries in the African Cup of Nations. In the following table, you can see the absent players for this clash against the Gunners:

2️⃣Arsenal Update

Arsenal were top of the league at Christmas, but now they find themselves chasing Liverpool, who are currently five points above them in the table. They are level on points with Manchester City and Aston Villa, so cannot afford any slip-ups against teams that are battling just to stay in the league. Their recent form has not been much to write home about though as they have two wins, a draw, and three losses from their last six matches - these included defeats to the likes of West Ham and Fulham.

When it comes to injuries and suspensions, Arteta does not have as much to think about as other managers in the league. In fact, he can consider himself to be pretty lucky as he only has four players absent for this clash against Forest. You can see these absentees in the table below:
