Derby v Nottm Forest Betting Tips and Prediction

Derby and Nottingham Forest face up in the East Midlands derby in what is sure to be a feisty affair with more than just local pride at stake and we have free football betting tips in our preview.

Forest manager Stuart Pearce is under immense pressure after a dismal run of form, leading to rumours that he will face the chop should his side suffer another defeat against Derby on Saturday afternoon.

We're betting on Derby to win, get the best odds of 8/11 at William Hill.


Local derby matches often throw up a shock and go against the form book with underperforming teams upping their game or the form team buckling under the pressure – I cannot make a case for that in this game however and for my Derby v Nottm Forest betting tips a home win is the only option. The last time we did a beting preview for Derby v Forest we tipped a Forest win, not this time!

Derby should have too much for a faltering Forest side as they go into this one joint top of the league and not tasting defeat in their last five outings. In stark contrast Forest have dropped like a stone after their early season form, losing their last four and not tasting victory in their last eight games, leaving them in 13th place in the Championship.


The Rams have been a tough prospect at home this season scoring at least one goal in 92 per cent of their games so far. Pearce's men on the other hand have only managed to muster up a paltry two goals in their last five outings. When you consider this and also throw in to the mix the statistic that they have failed to score in three of their last five visits to the iPro, there is a strong possibility of Derby winning to nil and that is our main Derby v Nottm Forest betting prediction for Saturday, the best odds are 2/1 at Coral.


Derby are short favourites for this one, and when searching for another betting tip which offers a bit more value for money a statistic which offers this is that Derby have led at half time in over half of their games (56 per cent) so far this season. This is an impressive figure which could easily continue against a side low on confidence should they get an early goal. Therefore Derby HT/FT is a likely outcome leaving Pearce teetering on the brink of receiving his P45 on Saturday afternoon.

 The best odds for Derby to be winning at half-time and at full-time is 7/4 at Bet Victor.
