Cardiff v Nottingham Forest Prediction & Betting Tips – 21st April 201817th April 2018 / lee
Cardiff v Nottingham Forest Championship, 21st April 7.45pm
As long as Cardiff just keep winning they will book themselves automatic promotion at the end of the season. The Welsh club landed a good away win at Norwich last weekend to snap a small winless streak that they were on. Can they push on? Nottingham Forest also collected a win last weekend as they took down Ipswich. They are likely going to end up lodged in the bottom half of the table though.
Cardiff v Nottingham Forest Betting Odds*
Cardiff 11/20, Draw 3/1, Nottingham Forest 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 4:44 p.m. on April 16th, 2018)
Cardiff News and Form
The Bluebirds got themselves a pressure-relieving win at Norwich last weekend which came after they had taken just one point from their previous three games. It was enough to get them back into second place at the end of last weekend. If they win their last four games they are up in the Premier League, it is as simple as that. The Bluebirds lost their last home game against league leaders Wolves which snapped a tremendous seven-match winning streak that they were on at home. Overall the Bluebirds are W15 D3 L3 for the season on home soil and so have the form to suggest that they can collect the points in this one. Cardiff have averaged 1.8 goals per home game as well and have been ahead at half time in eleven home games. A Cardiff/Cardiff half time/ full-time bet at William Hill is 13/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:44 p.m. on April 16th, 2018). Their defence has been superb overall this season and they have conceded just the 15 goals in 21 home fixtures this season so backing the Bluebirds to win to nil is going to be a good proposition.
Nottingham Forest News and Form
Forest don’t have anything to play for and that’s been showing in their recent results. They snapped a six-match winless streak (D3 L3) with a home win over Ipswich on the weekend. They are stuck on a four-match winless streak out on the road and they have failed to score in six of their last seven away games. Forest have averaged 1.1 goals per game away from home this season but are without one in their last four. Each to their last four away games have produced less that three games so backing under 2.5 goals at William Hill is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:44 p.m. on April 16th, 2018) is a good option to consider. They just don’t look like any kind of threat and they have scored just two goals only in their last seven league matches home and away combined (failing to score in six of those). It’s hard to picture the Bluebirds not getting out of this with a clean sheet.
Cardiff v Nottingham Forest Head to Head
Cardiff collected a good 2-0 win when they visited Forest back in November, making it three straight wins over the Tricky Trees. Cardiff are on an eight-match unbeaten streak of form against Forest now in the Championship now and have remained unbeaten in their last five home games against them, taking three clean sheets in that sequence.
Who will win – Cardiff v Nottingham Forest Predictions
Cardiff can deliver here as that victory last weekend will have eased their nerves a bit. They can settle down and collect three points in this one to edge closer to automatic promotion. It is likely that they will collect a clean sheet, as well as Forest, aren’t a major threat.
