Newcastle vs Nottingham Forest betting tips and predictions for tonight’s Championship clash at St James’ Park including the best odds for each bet and reasons for the selections.
Newcastle will look to bounce back following their shock defeat to Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day when Nottm Forest go to the North-East tonight. Forest haven’t won in their last four games and six just sit points above the relegation zone.
Newcastle have now lost two of their last three home matches 1-0. The Boxing Day defeat to Sheff Wed sandwiched a 4-0 win over Birmingham with a 1-0 defeat to Blackburn. Prior to that they had won their previous six home games and those performances mean we cannot tip anything but a Newcastle win tonight, however at odds of 2/5 it’s not a bet to be backing unless it’s going in your accumulator.
For my first Newcastle vs Nottm Forest betting tip tonight I am looking to the goals markets and go with over 2.5 goals and both teams to score. I wouldn’t normally look at this market but it looks a good bet tonight. Newcastle are usually prolific at home and Forest’s away games are high scoring. Their last three on the road have produced 13. The best odds for BTTS and over 2.5 goals are 13/10 with William Hill.
Newcastle have been relying heavily on Dwight Gayle to get their goals and he should be the man to play up front against tonight. He scored a hat-trick against Birmingham recently and has got 17 goals in 19 games. The odds for Gayle to score anytime are 4/5 with bet365 but for my second Newcastle vs Nottm Forest prediction I am backing Gayle to score first, the best odds for this bet are 3/1 with bet365.
