Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Cardiff City betting tips

Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Saturday evening with an anytime goalscorer tip and match prediction included.

Cardiff may have suffered a blip but Neil Warnock’s side are not going away. They are still in contention for automatic promotion and appear to be in a two-way battle with Fulham. Promotion to the Premier League would be a magnificent achievement considering their budget and collecting three points here will help them take a step in the right direction. They beat Norwich despite not being at their best and with a game in hand against out-of-form Derby, the Bluebirds will fancy their chances. They have a 1 point advantage over Fulham and must ensure they don’t drop any more points this season. It’s been a bitterly disappointing season for Forest who have very little to play for. They finally found the net against Ipswich on Saturday with a late comeback win against the Tractor Boys. Aitor Karanka must find a way to unlock his side’s attacking potential.

Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest Predictions

Forest haven’t scored in any of their last four matches and they’ve recently been defeated by play-off chasing duo; Middlesbrough and Millwall. This is equally as tough for the Tricky Trees and Cardiff could end up easy winners here. The first of our Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest betting tips is Cardiff -1 Handicap which is available at 5/4 with Sport Pesa.

Forest’s chronic lack of goals has been a huge worry for Aitor Karanka and Forest fans. They took 86 minutes to break down Ipswich but despite the absence of Sol Bamba, Cardiff should be tough to infiltrate. Both Teams to Score? No is priced at 17/20 with Bet Victor and is the second of our Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest predictions.

Cardiff have shared the goals around this season and there are a number of players who could find the back of the net. Kenneth Zohore was back amongst the goals last week and the big striker could be the player to unlock Forest’s defence. Kenneth Zohore in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 7/5 with Ladbrokes and is the last of our Cardiff vs Nottingham Forest betting tips.
