The final match of Saturday's Premier League fixtures sees Newcastle travel down to Nottingham to take of Forest at the City Ground. Newcastle will be looking to make a late swoop for a Champions League place, while Forest are in a relegation dogfight and are in desperate need of all three points. Will Newcastle claim all three points, or will Forest rob from the rich and take for the poor? You can find out my views in my prediction below - hopefully, I will hit the bullseye.

🏆 Nottingham Forest vs Newcastle: Who Will Win?

Nottingham Forest have been in some dire form as of late as can be seen from the fact that they have picked up just eight points from the previous 30 that have been on offer. Only Brentford and Sheffield have faired worse over this time period. As a result of this lack of form, Forest have dropped down the table and find themselves just two points above the Relegation Zone. They are scoring just over 1 goal per game on average while conceding 2 goals - a recipe for relegation.

Newcastle United are currently in 9th place in the table, which is lower than their fans would have expected them to be at this stage in the season - especially after the amount of money that they have spent. Although they will have their eyes set on a Champions League spot, it is highly unlikely that they will claim the 4th spot as they are currently 13 points behind Aston Villa in 4th place. Newcastle's form at present is quite poor as they have only claimed a third of the points that have been on offer over the last ten games.

Although both of these teams are not in any sort of form, I think Newcastle will have enough about them to come away with an important three points and leave Nottingham even deeper in the mire. When it comes to the scoreline for this match, I would have to go with a 3-1 win for the Geordies.

My Prediction: 🏆 Forest 1 Newcastle 3⚽

Below I have given you the odds that five top bookmakers are offering British punters in relation to these markets for this Forest vs Newcastle match.

If you want to find out more about any of the bookies that I mention below, such as the type of free bets that they are offering British punters, then click on the logos to read our in-depth reviews.

Forest vs Newcastle: Match Winner Odds

Given where both of these teams sit in the table, it is not a shock to see Newcastle as the favourites to go on and win this match. However, as they have odds of above 2.00, we can tell that the bookmakers are not entirely sure as to who will win. The Premier League has a reputation as being the best league in the world due to the fact that shock results are not rare. If a team is not at it, then they will be turned over. Below you can find the match winner odds for this Forest vs Newcastle game:

Newcastle United2.072.072.102.042.04

Forest vs Newcastle: Both Teams To Score Odds

The bookmakers reckon that both teams will find the back of the net in this match. As you can tell from my 3-1 prediction, I am in agreement here for a number of reasons. However, I will talk about those reasons in the following section. For now, you can just take a look at the both teams to score odds that our five top British bookmakers are currently offering:

Team
Yes1.571.571.571.561.62
No2.312.312.252.172.23

Forest vs Newcastle: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The bookmakers are a bit less certain when it comes to the over/under 2.5 goals market. They are favouring the over 2.5 goals option, but would not be surprised if there were fewer than three goals scored. This is another beauty of the English Premier League - you can never be 100% certain as to what to expect. If you want to bet on the total goals market, then check out the odds in the table below as these are some of the best around at present:

Team
Over 2.51.661.661.661.671.62
Under 2.52.092.092.152.082.23

✔️ Forest vs Newcastle - Betting Tips

Football predictions, in my humble opinion, are not complete if there are no football betting tips. So, with this firmly in mind, what I am going to do now is give you some of my betting advice for his Foret vs Newcastle United match.

  • Tip 1: Bet on Newcastle to win: Both of these teams are lacking form at present, but Newcastle are in slightly better form, and I think this will be the difference on Saturday evening. They will enter this match buoyed by their last away performance which saw them dismantle an Aston Villa team that have been imperious at home over the last year or so. Newcastle did lose to Forest in December, but I see no repeat of this. If you want to back a Newcastle win, then you can find odds of 2.10 at 10Bet Sport.
  • Tip 2: Bet on both teams to score: Newcastle have kept just two clean sheets in their previous ten matches, while Nottingham Forest have not kept a single one in this time. Both teams have found the back of the net in 73% of Forest's home matches and more than half of Newcastle's away matches, so I think you can see why it is that I am backing both teams to score. BetUK Sports are currently offering odds of 1.62 for this market.
  • Tip 3: Bet on over 2.5 goals: In Newcastle's previous ten matches, eight have seen more than 2.5 goals scored, while six of Forest's previous 10 have seen three or more goals. So, as you can see, matches involving these two teams usually have plenty of goals in them. If you want to back at least three goals being scored in this match, then LeoVegas Sports are offering odds of 1.67.
  • Tip 4: Bet on Newcastle to win 3-1: Betting on the correct scoreline usually comes with some enticing odds due to the fact that it is not an easy market to get right. If you want to have a little punt on the correct score, then I recommend you go for 3-1 in Newcastle's favour. At the time of writing, you can find odds of 13.00 at Betiton Sport.

1️⃣Nottingham Forest Update

Nottingham Forest are at serious risk of having to play in the second-tier of English football next season as they are currently sitting in 16th place in the table, just two points above Everton, who occupy the third and final relegation spot. They are not having the best of time of things in front of goal, while their defensive line is struggling to keep the ball out of their net. They spent a lot of money hoping that it would help them stay in the EPL, but they have just not managed to click so far.

Nuno Espirito Santo needs help from the Holy Spirit in order to avoid relegation to the Championship, so the last thing that he needs is injuries to key players. Unfortunately, he has not been so lucky in this department, and below you can see the injured players that will be missing from this match against Newcastle.

2️⃣Newcastle United Update

After the season that Newcastle had last year, many would have been expecting Eddie Howe's men to be challenging for a spot in the Champions League, but this has been a bit of a tricky season for the Magpies. This can be mostly put down to the number of injuries that they have suffered in recent months. They are 13 points adrift of 4th place, which I think will be too big of a gap for them to close between now and the end of the season in May.
